Opening on the most romantic day of the calendar year, Valentine’s Day, the new restaurant features a full dining area with a bar area and alcoves, as well as a stylish lounge with sofas.

Downham Market Centre’s new chef Adam Cook is classically trained in brasserie food and is working on a menu of classic British dishes, fine dining and tapas.

Chris Gooderson, 32, joined Downham Home and Gardening Center as General Manager in January this year and has plans for the center to grow.

He said: “We want to capture everyone’s mood with something that suits every visitor.

“There will be a lovely earthy theme to match the garden center ambiance, with relaxed dining.

“It’s all really exciting and we’re excited to open it.”

The greenhouse is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 4pm and Sunday from 10am to 3pm, with plans to open later in the future.

Looking ahead to the remainder of 2023, the center will have a facelift with extensive renovations to the garden centre.
