Wentworth completes £1.2m restaurant development
Building has been completed on a new restaurant at Wentworth Garden Centre near Rotherham in South Yorkshire.

Wentworth, which occupies a 7.7acre site and is built within an 18th century walled garden, invested around £1.2m in the development and bought Malcolm Scott Consultants on board to design the buildings and obtain planning consent. The new eatery has the capacity to seat 270 customers indoors and more than 80 outdoors.

Chris Primett of Malcolm Scott Consultants said of Wentworth: "It is a family business and it shows how you can create garden centres with unique identities that are not large boxes. It has passion and idiosyncrasies, which customers love. It shows how owners can mix old and new buildings to create a much more interesting sales environment...I see the coffee shop as a very important 'point of difference' for garden centres because customers now expect much more than before."

Malcolm Scott Consultants recently announced that it successfully obtained planning permission for more than 70,000 m sq of covered and open space for garden centres and nurseries in the UK in the period January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009.

The company explained that the number of planning applications for new development that it is working on is "running strongly".
