What happened

We were so pleased and in love with this place when it first opened but sadly as time passes and it gets busier the food seems to get worse !

My friend and I went to use my free coffee vouchers for June and were thrilled to find that we could get 2 fresh cream strawberry scones for £2.99. These scones are four times the size of normal scones. Excellent value.

We went for breakfast as part of our stay at the Premier Inn and were really disappointed. We were seated quickly by what looked like the manager who was friendly and chatty and were told that someone would come take our breakfast order. Would have preferred a buffet style breakfast but thought it would be nice to have the breakfast... More

I was looking for a venue to hold my daughter's baby shower when my husband and I stopped by Doobies restaurant in Ashford and saw they did tea for 2 at a very good price. I went home, looked on tripadvisor and one of the first reviews mentioned a baby shower and how good it was. I emailed as I... More

I've been to Dobbies at Ashford (Kent) three times now and their food is deeeelicious and well priced. The garden centre offers hours of browsing and an excellent choice of purchases from trees to fresh baked bread. I go for the restaurant and usually come away with a hanging basket or a pot of jam, gifts for friends or some... More

We stopped here on our way home from France. Originally going to the beefeater for breakfast but this was crawling with people and didn't look clean. So we thought we would go over to the garden centre as we saw advert on way in. Very glad we did the restaurant although very full had plenty of room. Breakfast was cheap,... More

A lovely place to visit, very interesting, huge selection of goods to look at and some very reasonable gifts etc. However the restaurant is very expensive for family dining, soft bottled drinks were extortionate! The food for adults was lovely however the chicken burger for a child was like dry cardboard and not worth £4.95. If they can get the... More

Visited here for breakfast whilst staying at the premier inn over the road. Very reasonable and ok for the money. Nice place to look round.

We regularly come here, primarily for the sandwiches which are by far and away better than the vast majority of the competition if not all. Today we had an egg mayonnaise on brown bread and a chicken Caesar on White. The bread was very fresh and generously thick and the fillings were plentiful, both served with crisps and salad. A...

Came here for breakfast, you choose your food as like, the food was hot, a good selection of hot and cold drinks. toilets clean, good disabled access, free car parking directly outside, also an extensive shopping area as part of the store.
