Chippenham is a winner!
The Chippenham Pit Stop has won Truckstop News’ prestigious Truckstop of the Year award for 2017. The site, near Junction 17 of the M4 has beaten off stiff competition to take the top prize.
The judges were impressed by the cleanliness of the site, the parking areas and the quality of food. The staff were friendly, chatty and helpful, and the food was delivered in good time, and was very enjoyable.
The Chippenham Pit Stop was described by the judges as “smart, with a nice layout and it feels like a very upmarket establishment.” The outside parking area was praised as well as the facilities.
The tables were cleared quickly after eating and so the who restaurant area was spick and span without any dirty crockery from earlier diners left waiting. The judges concluded “I would recommend this as a place you would to choose to eat at rather than being forced to east it. I would have no hesitation in bringing my family here for a meal.”
The runner up was the Route 74 Truckstop at Lesmahagow, which our judges described as: “A fresh, modern clean truckstop. Not the cheapest, but it’s definitely one of the higher quality truckstops.”
Also highly commended was the Lodge Farm Café near Holbeach which was praised for its “friendly and helpful staff, good food and welcoming atmosphere.”
