Groves Nurseries

The necessary permits for Groves Nurseries and Garden Centre have been finalised for the realisation of a new restaurant, with Smiemans Projecten now beginning planning work preparation.

The garden centre, located in the south of England, will be able to accommodate 310 guests with the new restaurant, with its HighLight arc greenhouse of 415 m2??divided into a conservatory and a restaurant.

There is also a large terrace where 120 guests can be seated.?Unlike the Netherlands and Germany, almost every garden centre in England has a restaurant or cafe for their customers.

It gives the garden centre a different look and creates a space where people want to stay longer and more frequent which offers sales opportunities.

It has been found that especially in bad weather, catering accounts for a major part of the turnover of garden centres.
