Our Community & Environment

Our peaceful location in rural Wiltshire ensures that we are part of our local community as well as the international community of professional drivers.

We provide a home from home for drivers and a vital shop and friendly meeting place for locals.

Giving is Our Culture

Giving is central to our culture at Chippenham Pit Stop. Every month in conjunction with our monthly health campaigns we corporately donate to national and local charities such as ‘Bowel Cancer UK’.

We also give back to our local schools through our schools ‘Christmas tree voucher scheme’.

Community involvement is extremely important to us

Being generous with our time is also vital. Whether is it offering work experience to local students, making pancakes with children from St Nicholas School, or helping in the tea tent at local events, we love being an active part of our thriving local community.

Situated on the outskirts of the village of Draycot Cerne, just 3 miles north of Chippenham.

Our restaurant serves locally sourced award winning food. Draycot Stores sells everything from fresh veg, bread and flowers, to reflective jackets, greeting cards, sunglasses and electric kettles.

Driver Wellbeing

Driver wellbeing is at the forefront of our vision at Chippenham Pit Stop. We undertake ongoing research to understand the needs of our drivers.

Driving all day long can take its toll on general wellbeing so when you stop with us we want you to have a chance to invest in your own health.

So not only do we have healthy eating options and the free use of our outside gym, but we also undertake monthly health awareness campaigns to reflect potential issues that may affect you. We raise funds for that associated health charity with donations from you and our company.

You take care of the driving, we'll take care of you.

We have regular visits from Wiltshire Health trainers who provide drop in blood pressure checks, diabetic risk assessments and a chance to discuss other health issues. We have introduced chemical free bacon, traditionally cured by our local butcher following research about the danger associated with chemical nitrates. As our motto says… ‘You take care of the driving, we’ll take care of you’.

Taking Care of the Environment – Zero to Landfill

We really care about the impact our business has on the environment.

Nothing goes to landfill from here!

Our solar power installations mean we don’t depend on gas as an energy source.

We have converted our kitchen equipment to run on electric.

Food is sourced locally to ensure low food miles.

Reducing Plastic Usage

We are constantly evaluating our use of plastic too. All of our sandwich wrappers are made from recycled vegetable matter, straws are paper and take away cutlery is made from wood.

We’ve achieved zero to landfill.

Water Conservation

We’ve installed waterless urinals to reduce water usage.

My Grandkids love it

Great food freshly cooked. Friendly staff. Very clean. My Grandkids love it there when they visit for an amazing breakfast.


Lorraine Haywood – March 2019

This is how truck stops should be.

First time in here tonight and I’m impressed. This place is spotless, clean parking, clean toilets and clean shop. Food was cooked spot on (steak) and well presented. Nice selection of beers in the bar, well stocked shop. This is how truck stops should be.


Steve Tongue – June 2018

One of the best around.

I regularly visit this Truck Stop for breakfast. One of the best around. May be a Truck Stop but the clientele is varied from Truckers to families taking a welcome break from motorway driving. Clean with polite staff, don’t be put off by the lines of lorries. Truck drivers know they are on to a good thing. They also have a general store for you to top up on sweets, biscuits and drinks for your onward journey.
