A relatively small service station on the M62, use of Ferrybridge declined considerably after the A1 by-pass. A1 traffic can still access the services, but it is no longer a regular stop for many.
Despite its small size, Ferrybridge has a number of food outlets including Burger King, Costa, Greggs and Ernie's Fish and Chips.
Free wifi is available, as is a play area for children. Picnic tables are available for eating outside and there is a small block of showers.
Fuel is available from the attached BP Garage, which also sells a limited amount of snack food.
A Travelodge can be found on site, and shopping is available from Cotton Traders, M&S Simply Food and WHSmith.
Entrance to the services is made difficult by the sudden splitting of the road immediately after leaving the M62.
Ferrybridge was built entirely with private funds with no government intervention.
Online Tyre Retailers Click on Tyres used a diagram of Ferrybridge as an example motorway service station in their First Car Guide publication.
Ratings have improved over the years and in 2012 the services were given a 4 star rating by Visit England, with the toilet facilities coming in for particular praise.
