My colleague Charles went to see the revamped Tesco Watford with Giraffe (family restaurant), Harris & Hoole (coffee) and Bakery Euphorium, which changes the face of the modern supermarket and introduces food service into the same building. He reports "It is well worth seeing - the integration of interesting design, open food displays, very clear messaging and high quality products - all of which stands out."
