Not had lunch here but been several times for cream tea. Nice area separated from main restaurant, plenty of finger sandwiches, cakes & lovely scones. Very reasonably priced & just as good as other more expensive venues.

Dobbies is a value for money place to eat. The breakfasts are excellent. The choice is really wide and the quality is quite good. OK it isn't cordon bleu but then the prices reflect this. It isn't pretending to be what it isn't. There is a great range of cakes to tempt as well. Dangerous stuff for the weak willed.... More

Not the place to go for lunch. The food is mediocre at best. We had sausage casserole and the gravy was horrible even though sausages fine. The tomatoes with it were raw so obviously not cooked in casserole. The chips and other accompanying vegetables were fine. Not a patch on my own sausage casserole. Such a shame as the environment...

This is an ideal spot for lunch (or breakfast) after a walk around the garden centre or just to get away from the office for a while. Plenty of selection from sandwiches hot or cold food and good choices for children. They have plenty of yummy cakes and have afternoon tea if you have missed lunch. A bit more care... More

I come here with my mum quite often as she has a Dobbies card and gets 2 free hot drinks a month at the restaurant. Really spacious venue, never struggle to find a seat. We enjoy the outdoor seating when the sun is out. Service is great, friendly staff who make good recommendations. Reasonable priced food. Cake selection is to... More

Everyone was very friendly in the coffee shop. Scones were on offer, buy one get one free, big enough to share when not on offer. Prawn sandwich was fantastic, lovely coffee just to finish. Lovely clean and cool. Next walking round picking up lots of unusual gifts. So much to see, will definitely come back.
