There will also be a new outdoor children?s play area for little ones to enjoy.
Breakfasts, lunches or afternoon teas will be available in the new restaurant.
The garden centre and current restaurant area will remain open throughout the refurbishment.
Gary West, general manager at Notcutts Garden Pride, said: ?We are very excited to be investing in major improvements. We will provide customers with a fresh and contemporary shopping and dining experience.
?Notcutts Garden Pride Garden Centre will continue to remain open as usual. We’re hoping to keep disruption small, but we ask customers to please bear with us in the meantime.
?We look forward to unveiling our brand new look to our customers later this year.?
