Notcutts Garden Pride Garden Centre has opened a new restaurant for up to 300 people.
The restaurant project in East Sussex has been part of a refurbishment which began last year. It includes upgrades to the layout and a new state-of-the-art outdoor plant canopy.
The new restaurant is the largest across Notcutts’ 18 garden centres. The restaurant also has a new feature cake counter with a selection of Notcutts’ popular treats.
It also features a south-facing alfresco terrace which seats a further 80 people. An outdoor children’s play area has been included for little ones to enjoy.
A state-of-the-art, vented plant canopy has also been installed. It measures 1,000 square metres, almost double the size of the garden centre’s original canopy.
The new canopy has enabled the Notcutts team to stock a wider range of plants and gardening supplies. It will also keep plants in an the best condition through the changing seasons.
Gary West, general manager at Notcutts Garden Pride, said: “We’re thrilled that our new restaurant is now open.
“Our restaurant offers a fantastic dining space with rural views across the South Downs. The new alfresco terrace and children’s play area will be popular.
“We hope local people will pop in and explore everything we have to offer.”
