Tucked in the far end of the stunning courtyard garden now sits an extremely extravagant tree house style room that can seat up to twenty four guests comfortably and has enabled Driftwood to maximise the space across 365 days a year. The glass front and wooden sides create a seamless transition from the cafe's main seating area, whilst offering a different garden room atmosphere. The area is used not only for extra covers during peak times, but for private functions and parties. Driftwood co-owner Clare Wright is delighted with the result and how it is already transforming their business: “The Garden Pod as it’s known adds a real wow factor to Driftwood. It frames the courtyard beautifully with its sleek lines and is proving a real success.”
Harriet Sheppard, Commercial & Project Manager at Broadview, explains how the new structure has given Driftwood Café a real talking point: “They now have a really unique space to offer their customers, so much so that we’ve heard that customers phone ahead and specifically request to reserve a table in the new ‘garden pod’. Being able to offer twenty four extra covers throughout every day of the year, if they so wish, has made a big difference to Driftwood and I’m delighted Broadview has been able to help them with that.”
