A new bistro café is set to be unveiled in a popular garden centre.

The Watering Can bistro café will be serving customers as it opens at the Cherry Lane Early Dawn garden centre, in Carlton Colville, Lowestoft on Wednesday, July 8.

With the further lifting of coronavirus restrictions seeing the reopening of bars and cafés across the country, the new bistro café is ready to open its doors as it serves a tasty range of freshly produced meals, snacks, teas, coffees, cakes and pastries as customers visit the popular garden centre at Rushmere Road in Lowestoft.

Group operations director, Karl Ottolangui, said: “Our new Watering Can café will give our customers more reasons to visit Cherry Lane.

“It replaces the previous facilities, but we are delighted that all the former staff who worked in there are transferring over to the Watering Can, so there will be familiar, friendly faces to greet customers.

“Since Cherry Lane reopened, we have been delighted to welcome back all our former customers as well as a very healthy number of new customers.

“Like so many of us, people of all ages have been spending a lot longer in their gardens and discovering how much pleasure can be gained from gardening. “We are very pleased they have discovered Cherry Lane and our value guaranteed offering as well.”
