Truck Stop Transport Cafe Lorry ParkRisby’s Roadside Restaurant (Transport Cafe Truck Stop Lorry Park) is a “Modern” Business Operation that understands that to provide a service for HGV & WVM (white van man) it needs to cast a broad net for custom, this means attracting all of the general public. This is good news for all of us, long may they prosper! It’s only Britain, mainly England, where some members of the general public have a hang up about the phrase Transport Cafe,, in truth some 80% of those who visit this website looking for food stops are NONE PROFESSIONAL DRIVERS, they are families with children, civil servants, and other discerning members of the general population. Full Marks to Risby’s for being a go ahead operation that should serve us all for many a year!


Located off Junction 41 of the A14
