Notcutts, the UK?s largest family-owned garden centre group, has revealed its new look at a special ribbon cutting event on Thursday 27th October.

Notcutts vice-chairman, Caroline Notcutt, cut the ribbon to mark the completion of the first phase of development at Notcutts in Staines, which has seen a new-look restaurant as well as an increase in the indoor retail space.

The modern design of the new restaurant has created a calm and tranquil environment and includes individual counters to minimise queuing as well as a variety of different seating areas to suit individual needs.

The new restaurant has capacity for up to 270 people and features a seasonal menu, consisting of a selection of homemade dishes using fresh local produce, hot and cold food, drinks and snacks. Visitors to the centre can also enjoy a traditional afternoon tea as well as a large selection of homemade cakes.

The home, gift and seasonal departments has also been redesigned with new flooring, lighting and an improved product layout. Other features include brand new accessible toilets with unisex baby changing facilities.

Matt Ellis, centre manager for Staines said: ?The redevelopment plans for Staines are incredibly exciting and we hope will provide an enjoyable and inspirational experience for our customers. We?re looking forward to welcoming our customers into the new, modern restaurant which will be a fantastic addition to the centre.?

The second phase, which is due to be completed in Spring 2017, will see the remaining canopy enclosed to complete the expansion of the indoor plant and retail area.

A new outdoor eating area will overlook a new ?inspiration garden? which will provide customers with creative ideas for their own gardening projects. For families visiting the centre, the existing children?s play area is being relocated near to the outdoor eating area.

The Staines refurbishment project is part of Notcutts? five-year plan to redevelop its 18 centres across the UK. The Notcutts garden centre in Staines employs 76 people.
