Owners comments.

The A1 Truck Stop has been established 20 years. It is a Neo American style diner at a Truck Stop offering full Lorry & Car Parking Facilities, plus contract Parking & Driver training instruction area. A Truck accessories shop,, quite a few lanes for automated fuel 24/7, planned to help you get a quick turn around. A club house is in the planning stage.

Webmaster Report

The A1 Truck Stop Lorry Park Transport Cafe is a unique operation with regards to the Transport Cafe, which is perhaps known better as Margaret’s Transport Cafe. Margaret has known some of the drivers for 20 years, and providing good food is her dedication, with the aid of her friendly staff. They were very good and attentive to all the customers.

The Unique part is the Actual Building which is like an American diner in near all respects, polished metal outer skin and retaining the same character inside, PLUS a REAL JUKE BOX.
My feelings were that this is a very good atmosphere, and the food I observed looked good, the quantity of food on the plate was also good. The near mimic of an American diner is unique and you can feel the desire of the owner and staff to give that, we are special impression. This operation whilst well established is now moving forward and will not stagnate; a fair quantity of love is involved in this service to professional drivers. Well-adjusted members of the general public will like this stop, if they are looking for good food and value for money and good service.

Driver Customer Reports

One driver who I chatted to commented that the food was always excellent

Two other retired customers, husband and wife, made the following comments:-
Excellent meals and good price, good service, real food, not like the Little Chef, we always plan to call in here for a meal when passing. We decided to try it after a horrible stop at a little chef, we wish we had done so sooner, we can eat a real meal just like we might have at home, meat and vegetables with gravy, or really wonderful salads if we prefer.
