Work will begin next month to build a new larger and brighter restaurant at Notcutts Woodbridge Garden Centre, as part of an ongoing redevelopment programme across the company’s 18 garden centres nationwide.
Due to be completed by the end of 2019, the brand-new restaurant will create a modern, light and spacious dining experience for up to 250 people, with a new outdoor terrace for eating alfresco. Customers will enjoy fantastic views across the garden centre and The Notcutts Garden, a permanent display designed to inspire local gardeners with creative ideas and beautiful plant combinations for their own outdoor spaces.
While this exciting work is carried out, a ‘Marquee Restaurant’ will be in operation serving a reduced menu of lunchtime and afternoon favourites including sandwiches, salads, soup and jacket potatoes. Hot drinks will also be available, including much-loved Paddy and Scott’s artisan coffee, and an array of customers’ favourite cakes.
Darren Brooks, General Manager at Notcutts Woodbridge Garden Centre, said: “This is an exciting time for Notcutts Woodbridge and we’re very much looking forward to unveiling our brand-new restaurant to all of our customers later this year. The garden centre and restaurant will continue to remain open as usual throughout the transformation.”
Caroline Notcutt, Vice Chairman of Notcutts and Great-Granddaughter of Notcutts’ founder Roger Crompton Notcutt, said: “We are very excited about the future of our Woodbridge Garden Centre, where our family business first started over 120 years ago. The restaurant has always been extremely popular with the local community, and our new restaurant will cater for the growing demand as well as provide our customers with a fresh, relaxed and contemporary dining experience.”
