I travel on the M4 alot and call in to the Chippenham Pit Stop for rest, the reason is that the food is 1st Class and not expensive like motorway service stations the staff are always very friendly smart in apperance and very helpfull. Toilets are very clean and tidy and if you do want a shower they have that facility as well. Dont be put off that its a lorry park I have seen plenty of families eating there. The place has been refurbished to a high spec its change for the better, I do not agree with other comments and when you give it a try you will understand why I praise it so much.

Whilst im all for helping the small companys this one seems to think its on par with motorway services and charges like one too.stopped off for full english what i got wasnt. one sausage one egg beans n toast one bacon dont know where they get the full english from no mushrooms the plate was bigger than all my fryup and 5,00 for that seems to be a bit wrong i think they are trying to maxamise there profits to pay for the refurb .as for taste i dont think i could tell the differance between any of it it was completely tasteless .sorry but true

This place changed hands in this year .and i had high hopes dashed when the new owners set ot to make ther fortune via us.
This place is well located for us drivers at j17 m4 , but they think we are cash cows they like to milk dry .
They do provide a voucher for £4.00 but most meals you can add about another £1.60 to pay for a meal without a sweet.
i am all for making a decent profit but there prices are nearly on par with the motorway services.
and food has gone back to if its not eat keep it on heat might not be fresh cooked.
They are still conducting changes but im sure none of these will save us money.

Staying the night thought would be a great place to hole up parking fee reasonable had shower must say very clean and toasty warm very nice staff in there went on to have a meal had beef stew!!!! Well it was like chewing old tyres not nice at all
After staying for few hours needed the rest room as I went to go in they was locking up 9 30 ???? Advertised open till ten got told to use outside toilet not customer friendly at all just seems pointless advertising one thing then doing another very dissatisfied

Overall this is a good stopover with excellent shower facilities (£1.50) ,this would be better though if it was included on the parking ticket enabling drivers to claim it back as this is not shown on the printed receipt, however only a stones throw from J17 M4 a convenient overnight stop,£16 to park.
