Blackbrooks Garden Centre, located on the A21 Sedlescombe, has been recognised as ‘Greatest Garden Centre Catering Team 2014’ at the The Greatest Awards 2014 event.
This award is presented on the nominations and feedback of customers, not judges.
It is the quality of nominations sent by Blackbrooks’ customers to the Greatest Awards 2014 that has resulted in the garden centre winning the gold award in the category.
“First class coffee served with a smile”, “breakfast best in Sussex” and “service with a smile in delightful settings” are just a handful of the comments that contributed to the garden centre – outstripping other UK garden centres in this category.
This award is recognition of the expansion made following investment at the garden centre in recent years, notably the build of a 150 seater restaurant with state of the art kitchen facilities in 2011.
The restaurant sources food and ingredients from local and UK based suppliers, which is very important to Blackbrooks Garden Centre who have a strong ethos of serving and supporting their local community.
Mark Winchester, who took ownership of Blackbrooks Garden Centre in 2009, said, “To be presented with the award as overall winner of Greatest Garden Centre Catering Team at the Greatest Awards last week was a massive honour.
“This is a special prize for us to receive as it is awarded as a direct result of our customers’ loyalty and praise.
“I am delighted that the investment we have made in recent years has provided our local community with a popular and thriving restaurant and I would like to thank our customers for endorsing and supporting Blackbrooks Restaurant so we are recognised as having a top UK catering outlet in our garden centre”.
