An Abbots Leigh garden centre opened its revamped café during the Easter weekend.

Refurbishment at Brackenwood Garden Centre’s café, in Pill Road, began in January, and it has now reopened as The Garden Tea Room.

The kitchen and indoor seating area offers teas, coffees, homemade cakes, breakfasts and light meals, while work to complete an enlarged conservatory is still ongoing.

New tenants Mark Ingram and Dotty Laskowska have worked at restaurants across North Somerset and Cornwall in chef and front-of-house roles respectively.

Garden centre administrator, Sarah Winstone, said so far so good for the new venture.

She said: “We had a good number of visitors over the Easter break.

“The combination of a new team, look and feel together with an enticing menu will deliver a destination eatery in the heart of Abbots Leigh for the people of North Somerset.”
