Visited here for lunch with my wife last weekend. This wasn't the first time we had been here, but we noticed that things were gradually getting worse. This visit was the final straw.....loads of tables not cleared, only 1 server on coffe duty, so queue was very long and to top it all our panini was served like slop!

As always a very good breakfast, a good selection and a very clean dining area. Great value for money :-) I highly recommend it.

Had breakfast here recently for a second time and unfortunately it has been poor on both occasions. It was fairly busy so there was a big queue which we had to wait in for a while until we got to the counter. The staff are friendly. I ended up going for the largest breakfast because I thought toast counted as... More

We have been here several times and the experience was not good, whilst the staff were friendly and try to please the food is never hot which is a shame because generally it is quite good quality, we are now going elsewhere for our lunch and garden shopping.

What as happened to this place? Butchers still good, prices in general instore are on the pricey side. But the Cafe is more revealing, we called in this afternoon and met family there and stopped for a cuppa. Be warned. Check the crockery, it is not in the best of clean states.Many Cups and Tea pots have engrained stains on... More

It's just perfect. Something for everyone. Male, female, young, old. It's more than a garden centre. There are clothes, furniture, food to eat and buy, fish and pets. Oh, the plants are good too. Great to stroll and eat.

Very disappointed with our recent to Dobbies for Supper with Santa. Amongst other things Santa often had his red coat open for all the children to see his blue striped t-shirt and the edge of his beard. Made even worse when his hat fell off! Very disappointed with what should have been an enjoyable family afternoon.

Must book weeks in advance for the High Tea. Always booked out and busy. Excellent value for money. Great service from the staff, attentive, friendly, polite and will help out what ever is required. Good fresh cakes and fresh leaf tea. Although a garden centre great restaurant.
