When my friend suggested we go to the new Gloucester Services for lunch I thought she was crazy. A motorway services for lunch, really? I couldn’t have been more wrong. Gloucester Services is about 20 minutes from me. I’ve passed a few times since it opened last year but never thought of, or needed to stop since it was so close to home. When my friend Jess mentioned it had been on Countryfile I just had to see what the fuss was about. And accepted her invitation for lunch.
The second I entered the door I realised why it has been so popular with the press since it opened. I forgot where I was for a second. We decided to have a look round the shop before getting some lunch. We spent nearly an hour looking around and between us I think we wanted to buy the entire shop. I particularly loved the fact that all of their produce had come from within 30 miles from the service station.
Have you stopped at Gloucester Services on your travels yet? What did you think?
Until next time,
