Gravesend Development

Updated 19th July 2018.

Three years ago, planning started for a new 280 seater restaurant at our Gravesend Garden Centre. This time last year the build began and today we are proud to announce that the doors to The Mill are finally open!

The Mill, which overlooks our beautiful plant area, is double height in places with floor to ceiling windows creating a light filled space perfect for enjoying a delicious breakfast, lunch or snack.

We have captured some of the build on video and these can be viewed below but to really get a feel for the place, we welcome you to come and see for yourself!

The Mill is open daily from 9am to 5pm (9.30am to 3.30pm on Sundays).
