Brunch and burgers at Brightside


Brightside is bringing proper hospitality back to roadside dining with a freshly cooked menu full of classic, comforting dishes. Choose from a tasty all day brunch menu – we think our Big Breakfast is the UK roadside’s best – brilliant burgers, a very special ham and eggs and a selection of lighter bites and salads.

Need to takeaway? We have a wide selection of breakfast rolls to go, or grab one of our fully loaded sourdough pizzas – ready in a jiffy and cooked to order on site.

We understand that happy kids mean happy families, and our Bright Sparks menu is full of crowd pleasing burgers, pancakes, chicken strips, fish fingers and pizza. Time for ice cream? Don’t miss our soft serve sundaes – sure to put a smile on the face of the weariest little traveller.

You’ll also find free apples for the onward journey, activity sheets and giant games in our outdoor terrace.

With plenty of vegan and gluten-free options, damn fine Clifton Coffee and our much talked about nostalgic decor – think Little Chef meets Twin peaks – we’re sure you’ll be back for another warm welcome somewhere down the road… travel happy!
