My goodness, I thought the garden centre had some gorgeous stuff but wait until you go in here and see all the delicious cakes, out of this world. Also a vast selection of salads and sandwiches too, you'll be spoilt for choice.

Decided to have some lunch there which was gorgeous! The prices are a bit high but for all organic food, it's worth it! I'm a vegetarian and they had quite a bit to offer for me. The shop is great, especially all the homemade goodies!

My daughter took me for Christmas afternoon tea. Absolutely super.Such a selection of cake and sandwiches and mulled wine and mince pies. I can't remember the name of the lovely woman who served us.She should be commended. The whole things was a really special experience on a special day for me, 23rd December 14. I will certainly go again.

We recently held our son's first birthday party at Dobbies Garden Centre in Ashford - The whole thing was brilliantly organised from start to finish. Thank you to all of the team who looked after us all so well. There were 45 of us for afternoon tea / party games / cupcake decorating. The children's entertainment was great and they... More

Dobbies Restaurant needs a kick up the backside.. Since it took on a new chef the food has gone downhill. the floors are filthy, it used to be such a nice place to eat.

We visited Dobbies for garden goods and decided to try the restaurant as well. What a pleasant surprise. The food was of good quality, served hot and fresh, and the drinks were good. Would recommend a visit if in the area.

This afternoon my four friends and I went to Dobbies for Christmas Afternoon Tea. One of my friends has several food intolerances and the catering staff could not have been more accommodating. The services was excellent and the food itself was delicious and for such an amazing price at £10 a person for sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, tea,... More

Although the service was prompt the way the food was presented was poor. I order 2 baguettes. They were both just slapped together and no pride was taken. The lady who served us was in such a rush and gave no real thought to the presentation. One of the baguettes only had 2 thin slices of cheese in and I... More
