    Good place to stop Adiquate facilities but as with all Motorway services price of fuel is way to expensive.

    It's nearly home when we're travelling north and too early to stop if we're going south!

    There will be a Waitrose Southbound opening later in 2014 - I'm told - to match existing Northbound one.

    Unbelievably expensive for snacks! We're talking £1.90 a coke and £1.05 for a packet of crisps! Too too it all off, the place is filthy!

    If you're travelling south don't bother trekking over to Waitrose on northbound side. It's a long, convoluted route and the tiny store is the untidiest Waitrose I've ever encountered! #shameful

    Nobody could tell me where to get my free sausage roll from. This happened to four other people while I was here. Sadness.

    Waitrose is on the Northbound side only. It's a bit of a trek over the bridge of you're heading south and in a hurry. One of the better services on the M1 though.

    Avoid the toilets unless you're happy with casual racism and homophobic comments plastered all over the walls.

    Bring your own food, it's an expensive place to stop off. The cash machines charge £1.95 to withdraw cash so bring money with you.
