ADDRESS: Ram Jam Inn, Stretton A1

The site is located off the A1 at Stretton, between Stamford and Grantham. It is located on the vacant site of the former Ram Jam Inn pub. Until its closure in 2012, the venue was used commercially as a pub/restaurant and conference venue, with associated bedroom accommodation at first floor level.

The A1 northbound runs the full length of the site’s eastern boundary. To the south of the site is an active petrol filling station (PFS) with a small convenience store and Greetham Garage offering vehicle repairs. Greetham Road runs along the western boundary of the site.


The proposal is to demolish the existing building and erect 3 drive-through units and 1 drive to unit including new landscaping, car parking and alterations to the site access.

The accommodation schedule for each unit will be as follows:

  • Unit 1 – 506 sq. m. to be located on the eastern side of the development site. This is the only two storey unit
  • Unit 2 – 186 sq. m to be located on the southern side of the site
  • Unit 3 – 167 sq. m to be located within the western section of the site
  • Unit 4 – 70 sq. m will be adjacent to unit 3

This proposal will provide a total of 102 no. car parking spaces, which includes 4no. disabled parking bays and 2no. reserve bays for takeaway collection.

The site access will be taken from both the A1 Northbound and Greetham Road, which gives direct access to the site. It is proposed that the egress will be taken from both the slip road that re-joins the A1 Northbound, located on the east of the site. Alternative access and egress points are also available from Greetham Road (B668) located to the west of the site. This allows travel in both northbound and southbound directions.
