Ok setting, filled baguettes made up while we waited very efficiently by the you n man behind the counter but not overly generous contents. Nice chips but avoided excessive queue for the hot drinks by using the self service area but Thisbe had run out of milk jugs, and small tea pots and shortly would run out of cups and... More

My partner and I regularly visit the cafe for our brunch and I have to say that the standards do vary week on week. However if Tracey is working we always know that our food will be excellent so credit to her. Overall we are impressed but must agree with the comments about the queue for the hot drinks -... More

A large cafe that is kept clean. A good selection of food. Look for the offers on food and drink as these can give good value.

We love the cream tea at Dobbies and go at least once a month. The shop is excellent and full of unusual items like personalised stationery. Excellent hot chocolate.

Popped in for a wander round and thought we'd stop for brunch but was somewhat saddened to see such a huge crowd of people waiting to get hot drinks. I thought things were bad enough before Christmas with just two staff serving but now it's down to one . It's just not except able. No point in buying hot food... More
