We stopped off here on our way to Lincolnshire after travelling for over 3 hours and I must say it was very good. Lots of choice for food - we had kfc which was tasty and the staff were friendly (although they did appear to be getting a lot of orders wrong including mine). Toilets were clean and ample places...

This was our first visit to the "Tossed: fast food outlet at Welcome Break, Oxford. And what a pleasant change it was from the usual motorway cafe food! The chicken and avocado salad was deliciously crisp, fresh and varied and had a really tasty dressing, together with some tiny pasta gnocchi. Very imaginative. The contents complimented each other beautifully. Somebody... More

Plenty of choice here - Waitrose, WH Smith, Burger King, Harry Ramsden's, KFC, etc. We had Harry Ramsden's takeaway last night and the large size was just enough. Cooked fresh and chips were nice and not greasy. OK value but it's a service station so you're always going to get ripped off! Large car park.

I know lots of people hate Starbucks with its tax fiddling and poor quality coffee. The Waitrose here now offers sit down coffees from the Costa machine. No free coffees for Waitrose card holding customers, because it's services, not a store, but an improvement all the same with tables and chairs. Great airy contemporary services architecture with fountains outside.

Great place to take a break. We were on a long trip from Canvey Island to the Forest of Dean. 190 miles. So needed a break to stretch my legs, toilet break, and some food. Toilets very nice. Good choice of venues for food. We chose to eat from Harry Ramsdens, which was great at a very reasonable price. Cheaper... More
