Restaurant for customers all year round

In the idyllic coastal town of Bridport (GB) Smiemans Projecten built a restaurant of 415 m² next to the existing garden centre of Groves nurseries.

It is commercially essential for a garden centre in England to have a restaurant; it complements the feeling that people can enjoy going to the garden centre and makes it a real “experience”. For a number of garden centres we have now built a restaurant.

HighLight curved glass construction

This restaurant is a HighLight arched greenhouse that is 8.5 metres high at the ridge of the roof. The space is split up into a restaurant, a conservatory and an outdoor terrace. It has room for over 300 visitors. The design is by the architects Malcolm Scott Consultants. The restaurant was opened May 2018.

“Very exciting to see work progressing nicely on Ivy House! Great job CG Fry & Son, Malcolm Scott Consultants and Smiemans Projecten."
