Exciting new restaurant coming soon


We are building a new larger and brighter restaurant at our Woodbridge garden centre, as part of an ongoing redevelopment programme across our 18 garden centres nationwide.

Due to be completed by the end of 2019, our brand new restaurant will create a modern, light and spacious dining experience for up to 250 people, with a new outdoor terrace for eating alfresco with fantastic views across the garden centre and The Notcutts Garden.

We are open as usual while this exciting development is carried out and our ‘Marquee Restaurant’ will be in operation serving a reduced menu of lunchtime and afternoon favourites including sandwiches, salads, soup and jacket potatoes. Hot drinks will also be available, including the much loved Paddy and Scott’s artisan coffee and an array of your favourite cakes.

Privilege Club members will still be able to use their 2 for 1 meal benefit during the redevelopment on our special menu options and their free teas and coffees each month are also unaffected.

Please bear with us while we keep the disruption to a minimum. We will keep you updated along the way and apologise for any inconvenience caused whilst we work to improve your garden centre.

In the meantime, if you have any questions please see our frequently asked questions below or contact our customer care team here.
