    BP Garages

    Does anyone else have a problem with these??? Namely theones that have an M&S attached??? Lol
    If nothing else I’m a man of habit, and routinely fill upat my local BP as I’m coming through Kent, the problem I have is that I have towait what seems like an age ( normally is ) for people who have decided to do a weekly shopwhilst getting petrol, so not only do I have to wait to get a pump, I then haveto wait whilst the person pays for their 20 bags of shopping ( ok that’s a blatantlie but seems like it )!!!!! Give me a separate till pleassssseeeeeeeee lol!!!!Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Same for the Esso garages with Tesco express attached.
    I just stick to Shell - you couldnt do your weekly shop in there without remortgaging your house.

    Shell garages are a dying breed! You never seem to see hardly any of them anymore!

    Number3 you need to vote with your feet (or your wheels) and go elsewhere.

    The few times I been caught short and used one of them said Garages, I find when I get the till’s in sight, the norm is to see 3 tills and only one cashier….Drive’s me mad so I don’t use them.

    I must be lucky, there's a choice of 4 Shell's I can use between my place of work and home, depending on which way I choose to go home. There's also a BP/marks&sparks over the road form one of the Shell's which is pretty handy for buying things at 2am on a Sunday morning!

    I do have a shell that I go past on the A21, though it's currently being revamped, but it's on a stretch of road that's a bugger to get out of !! So I always give it a swerve!

    saying that it's probably being revamped to include a bloody tesco!!!! Lol

    i wonder where all the shell garages have gone??

    There across the county in Kent

    The Shell app is pretty handy if your on the move a lot as it can direct you to the nearest shell garage. I use it quiet a lot as I'm always off and out round the UK

    I think I know that one. Is it on the single-carriageway stretch just south of Tunbridge Wells?

    I stopped using the Shell near me because every time i went in they just persistently wouldn't stop asking if i wanted to buy any chocolate, i told them i don't want any and i told them not to ask me again numerous times and they carried on asking me so i just used a Shell elsewhere.

    It's deceptive. It looks a tiny little site, but there's a fair-sized commercial vehicles sales business tucked on the side. Number3 is right about it bring tricky to leave. The flow of traffic is frequent and slow, with only occasional gaps to drive into, plus it's an uphill launch. You need a bit of luck and good timing. Mind you, four-wheel drive, automatic transmission and 385 lb/ft of torque helps

    Hmm, I've never stopped there so It's only from what I've seen when driving past or I've been kind enough to let some poor soul out. But from the looks of it it just doesn't look very big. What work is being done there? Drove past yesterday on way home from brands hatch but didn't quite catch what it said

    I think it's just a general refurbishment.

    sure that's what it notes on the signs! I has also heard talk that the duel carrigdeways on the A21 through that part were being extended ??? So thought initially that was the start!!! Lol as in it was getting moved back further from the road.
