Oddities: a bit of a weird category this

Those places that are either out of area or do good stand up food to go. I suppose basically service stations that are independant and not selling slime.

A departure and a bit of an indulgence here but they do chips so the're in. Oddly French cuisine seems to to have failed to keep pace with the UK. Meals are often now better in blighty, but Les service stations and truckers cafes (routiers)take no prisoners. One menu available 4 courses including snails and steak and chips All the wine and cider you could drink for 11 Euros. No english spoken and little French by us, still friendly, reasonably priced and local food. Puddings let the side down.

8 A surprise win and the reason this category exists at all. Just off the M25 in a glade of Douglas Fir. Does excellent bacon rolls. Friendly staff, good prices and you can walk up through the woods to the semaphore tower over original heathland. Feels very remote, even though it is surrounded by motorways, recommended.

A beautiful riverside location despite being just off a a main road. No tables or chairs but excellent bacon rolls etc at good prices. Popular with bikers and way better than any services on the M6, recommended.
