Groves has planning permission for the restaurant and Smiemans Projecten has started planning work preparation.
This garden centre in the south of England will be able to accommodate 310 guests with this restaurant. The HighLight arc greenhouse of 415 m2 is divided into a conservatory and a restaurant. There is also a large terrace with 120 seats.
Smiemans said: "Unlike the Netherlands and Germany, almost every well-run garden centre In England has a restaurant or cafe for their customers. It gives the garden centre a different look and makes it a place
where people want to stay longer and more frequent which offers sales opportunities. It has been found that during bad weather, a major part of the turnover of garden centres has been allocated to the catering industry."
