A new food hall has been opened in Squire’s Garden Centre on Heathlands Road in Wokingham.
The space, which was originally occupied by a clothing store, is now being transformed into an eating venue which offers an array of cooked food and cupboard essentials
Squires, is a family owned business and has been serving Surrey, Sussex, Berkshire, North and West London since 1936. The business has ties to Heathlands Farm, a large operation that supplied fruit to retailers.
It said with the new expansion, customers can again explore locally sourced produce from the area including sparkling wine from Greyfriars Vineyard on the Hogs Back in Surrey.
Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squires Garden Centre, said: “I am very pleased to announce that we have expanded our food offering at Squire’s in Wokingham, supporting local suppliers where possible.”
She added: “In fact, working with the local community has been at the heart of our philosophy for more than 80 years, and the Food Hall brings the very best local food and drink together under one roof – reducing food miles and keeping the best flavours right here in our community.
“It takes our centre back to its Heathlands roots. Supporting local growers is something we are committed to in our plant ranges, so taking this approach with our food offer is something that comes naturally to us and is core to our philosophy. I hope that customers old and new will come to discover our Food Hall – you’ll find it inside the garden centre.”
