Working with Garsons, Compass’ Instore team has introduced a fresh new food offer and refurbished the restaurant at the garden centre in Titchfield, Hampshire.

Instore specialises in delivering restaurant and café food services for many of the UK’s most well known and loved retail brands. New tasty menus at Garsons feature everything from traditional cooked breakfasts, porridge and pastries, rustic deep-dish quiches and Sunday roasts with all the trimmings. A separate children’s menu is available for families and green-fingered customers can take a break from shopping to enjoy freshly brewed tea and Costa coffee, a tempting range of freshly baked muffins, scones and brownies as well as a selection of beers, wines and ciders. Reflecting the character of Garsons, the range of freshly prepared treats are showcased in tempting displays, featuring crates, slates, wood blocks and astroturf.

Andy Rees, Business Director for Instore said: “We’re over the moon to have won this new contract and we are really excited about nurturing our budding relationship with Garsons. This is our first venture into the thriving garden centre sector, and with our expertise there’s a lot we can add to create a great customer experience for garden enthusiasts.”

Ben Thompson, Director at Garsons added: “We are extremely pleased to announce that we have awarded this contract to Compass. Key to our decision was its combination of market-leading food and drink knowledge coupled with winning design ideas and dedicated operational expertise.”
