Selection of comments received It is now called Truckhaven. Instead of the usual overpriced fast food outlets, you get quality honest food and low prices. A wee gem! Take notes MSAs 14/06/2005 20:52:40

  1. Stafford South is one of my favourite Motorway Service Areas. It has all the elements that any tired traveller wants – Good toilets, choice of food, ample parking, newspapers and the bonus of a babbling pool, plus a sylvan picnic area. My only bad point (recently) is that the men’s toilets has the awful circular sink/soap/tap monstrosity. Something I thought (and hoped) was restricted to the M62 services, it seems this devils spawn is spreading its evil tentacles.
