The chain offers coffees, hot and cold food and soft drinks.

It is not known exactly when the new food outlet will open but an advert on Pret's website is advertising for a kitchen leader at the new store.

Details for the role says: "We are looking for passionate kitchen leaders to join Team Pret.

"Our kitchen leaders inspire a team of hot food chefs, trainers and team members to create pret's delicious handmade food."

The first Pret was opened in 1986 in London, while the next was opened three years later.

Today there are stores all over the world including America, France, Dubai and Hong Kong.

Other Pret stores in Kent can be found in Canterbury and Bluewater.

News of the new food offering comes just hours after it was announced that the centre's new play park will open next month.

The children's playground will have a Garden of England theme and include a host of activities including interactive elements.

The expanded Outlet is due to open in Autumn 2019, and will include 50 new premium and luxury brands and new facilities such as an events space, food piazza and 725 car additional car parking spaces.

It is also expected to create 500 new jobs in the town.
