I go to dobbies quite regularly as it's round the corner from my house. Nothing wrong with the actual store or products but there is a young male who works in the cafe. He has stood out to me on every occasion through his vulgar attitude and he clearly doesn't want to work there. He is rude, unhelpful, constantly sighing... More

Have had lunch there several times and breakfast for the first time the other day. Breakfast was good value. Have to wait quite a while especially when busy for lunch. But it's still good.

You know it's like a conveyer belt ordering foods for five in different sections of the servery. Everyone of the servers and the till girl were miserable, no smiles, no courtesy. I think they should rethink the hot drink situation. You're hot food gets cold before you've been served your hot drink. They can't cope in this section. Always the... More

A few months since we were here but there was no comparison in the restaurant today. We went for a panini each and my wife had to chose three times before they had all the ingredients to make what was on the menu. When it arrived it was cold and half cooked. I ordered an Americano coffee with milk. The... More

The garden centre is well stocked and you can often find some great bargains in sale time, a special treat is the restaurant. Get there early though because with the pensioners discounts the great tasting food goes quickly. The afternoon cakes are a must and a delicious treat, many drinks available too from sencha tea to a cappuccino .

Man I cannot believe the difference a few weeks makes. We are regulars to Dobbies and this is the worst is has been. The staff seemed harassed and unpleasant. Breakfast normally good was awful. Cold beans and eggs, in edible bacon and sausages really disappointing. I know it's cheap but u expect a basic level and this wasn't it. What... More

The Garden World is a lovely well presented showcase for all things garden with an excellent selection of food products and a beautiful restaurant displaying scrumptious food to die for. It's so hard to resist everything from the homemade meringues to the well cooked fresh hot food. The restaurant is very spacious every seating place has more than enough room... More

Waited for 17 minutes to be served for two cups of coffee. The people before us had ordered two large drinks but the staff had no clean large cups. One guy was on the coffee counter whilst 5 others wandered around aimlessly. Eventually another girl came up to assist andseemed determined to take as long as possible to make the... More

We all ordered toasted sandwiches but my grandmother who had a jacket potato which she had straight away, and were told that was fine, until around fifteen minutes later we were told there was no cheese, why did it take 15 minutes to see if there was cheese?! We then changed our order only to find out they had run... More
