A NEW Waitrose food hall has opened in Dobbies Garden Centre near Cirencester. 

The food hall at the Siddington store opened this morning (February 16). 

It is now the town's second Waitrose, joining the supermarket on Sheep Street.

Customers will find a range of chilled, frozen and store cupboard essentials from Waitrose, as well as free-from and vegan ranges and a range of wines and spirits. 

Darren Ramsey, general manager at Dobbies Cirencester, said the new store was an ‘excellent addition’. 

“The food hall at our store is very popular and the team is really positive about Waitrose being part of the shopping experience for customers,” he said. 

“Our existing partners will continue to be part of the offering, including Lindt, Whittards, the Cook range, as well as our fresh bakery to-go. Waitrose products will be an excellent addition.”
