We recently had a customer who sailed from Holyhead to Dublin with Irish Ferries. The driver in question couldn't stop talking about the Roadking Truck Stop located on the A55 just before Holyhead. When someone is making comments like
"The best truck stop I have been to for a while"
We decided to investigate further and contacted Nick Whatmore at Roadking for some information.
The driver who stopped at Roadking Truck Stop assured us it’s worth it for the ‘Megga’ breakfast alone!
The Holyhead site features a newly built transport cafe just a mile from Holyhead port. Fully licensed & open 24 hours during the week, it boasts a selection of meals, which includes fast and home cooked food. Their specialty is a traditional English ‘megga’ breakfast that is served all day every day, except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
