Forecourt retailer offers glittering five-star date night dining experience after securing food hygiene accolade across all sites

A leading East Yorkshire forecourt retailer is celebrating after achieving a 5* food hygiene rating across its entire estate, recognising the business’ commitment to serving up nothing but the best for its customers.

Sewell on the go’s most recently-opened Dunswell store was the latest to achieve the glittering accolade, joining the company’s 12 other sites and three Subway stores. With 16 locations achieving top marks and the highest 5* standard, the business is celebrating scoring 80/80.

Now, launched to coincide with Bonfire Night on November 5th, Sewell on the go is offering its customers the chance to win food and drink for a 5* date night from a 5* location. All entrants have to do is Tweet @sewellonthego or like, share and reply to the company’s Facebook post, stating what their favourite 5* Sewell on the go food is.

The lucky winner will receive a £50 voucher to spend on a selection of food and drink for two at any one of the Sewell on the go’s sites.

Sewell on the go’s rhyme to spark inspiration reads:


Remember remember the 5th November

Sparks flying high in the sky

A night to remember with the ones that you love

And a 5* meal, we’ll buy.


Win a meal on us, all you have to do,

Is tell us your favourite on the go food.

A date night for you and a lucky number two,

Don’t worry, we’ll let you pick the view.


Patrick Sewell, Managing Director of Sewell on the go, said: “We can’t think of anything more fantastic than offering people the opportunity to bag themselves 5* food for a 5* date night at the forecourt – especially with sparks flying and flames igniting on Bonfire Night this week.

“There’s a little something for everyone at Sewell on the go – freshly made sandwiches, hot food, Costa coffee, the list goes on. You can even peruse our wine selection or grab a bottle of one our locally-produced gins.

“The lucky winner, who will be announced via our social media channels on Monday, November 12th, will be able to browse the aisles, select their menu choices and enjoy their purchases on us.

“We built our first forecourt in Sutton in 1988 and, as far as we know, none of our sites have ever been a destination for a date, or opened up the chance for a 5* dining experience.

“We wanted to reward our loyal customers by offering them the opportunity to enjoy an evening to remember, courtesy of their local petrol station.

“Admittedly, this isn’t your traditional date night. But imagine the look on your significant other’s face when you pull up at the local petrol station and they see that 5* food hygiene rating on display.

“We’re really proud to achieve 5* food hygiene ratings at all of our sites and we think this is the perfect way to celebrate.”
