I love eating here, the food is really fresh and tasty, but my best friend is gluten free and often there is nothing she can eat. Come on Dobbies, get your act together.

Dropped in here today for a quick visit. Very busy, lots of people about. The bakery section was fairly busy. The butchery part is always worth looking at to see if there are any bargains to be had.lots of summer stuff reduced but nothing that I needed or wanted. Will return just before Christmas.

This place is the best for a cheap and tasty breakfast. Under £4 for 7 items, tasty, even the sausages as sometimes with cheap breakfasts they can taste cheap but not here. Lovely staff who went the extra mile when our vanilla was forgotten in the latte. Loads of seating. Cannot wait to try afternoon tea.

Had lunch here with my son. Buffet service. Nice friendly people serving behind the counter. Good verities of food hot and cold. The sweet section was very hard to choose from! Good choice of hot and cold drinks. We ate outside which was nice. Items cleaned away quickly after use. Nice layout in the garden/ household second. You could spend... More

Plenty of choice here and children well looked after. If you are a Dobbies card holder this entitles you to 2 free drinks per month, as well as discounts on plants etc. There are plenty of seats and a varied menu. The cream teas are lovely !

The central pulling point in this modern day gardening centre, clothes, shoes, toys, fish both alive and dead, furniture, pet supplies, books, dvd's, groceries, fresh meat and just about everything, is this large cafeteria which offers a wide range of good snacks, meals, afternoon teas, and drinks. It is a pity that the depth in the range of the non-eating... More

We have been to Ashford Dobbies many times and each time the food has been a combination of: tasteless, badly cooked and of terrible quality. Each time we have a bad experience we vow never to come back then foolishly decide to give it one more chance. Previously we have 'enjoyed' baked potatoes that appeared to have been recovered from...

We chose jacket potatoes, one adult and one child. Then you wait in a queue of 15 people for a hot drink, as the self service machine is closed for cleaning right in the lunch period when it is at it's most busiest, in the end I decided our food is getting so stone cold waiting I forego the hot...

Love the drink with jam and cream scones deal. Great to chill out with a favourite book or magazine.
