It will have new Raffles style décor, flooring, seating and lighting. There will be distinct seating areas to choose from including the main Café Bar, an afternoon tea area with piano, a coffee lounge with sofas, plus a family-friendly area. There’ll be a new menu and a new style of service - where you order at the till then take an electronic tracker to your table.

Deputy chairman Sarah Squire said: "We are all really excited with the plans for our stunning new Café Bar in Shepperton.

"The design theme is called ‘Vibrant’, which is one of three horticulture inspired concepts that we are rolling out to all our garden centres over the next few years. Inspiration comes from a sophisticated bygone era; think of Raffles and South East Asia.

"There will be lots of glass to let light in, botanical print wallpaper, tropical garden fabrics and wall art, painted furniture, glass pendant lighting, black and white checkered flooring and painted wooden shutters.

"The decision to make this investment was in part driven by customer feedback, both in-store and from our bi-annual customer survey. Our same team of friendly staff will run the new Café Bar, and they are all very excited about the plans, and can’t wait to welcome customers in early October."

The work to update Squire’s Café Bar starts on 4 September, but it will remain open while the works take place.
