“WHAT A MESS !”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Whilst the food was acceptable, their idea of clearing tables was definitely not !

They cleared trays of dirty dishes to other tables and piled them on the tables and chairs. The surrounding floor area was also littered with rubbish.

No one appeared to be supervising this fiasco.

To round it off, a robin was flying around the cafe.

“Sunday meal with £10 promotion”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Today visited the restaurant using voucher for £10 - buy one get one free this week and although my meal of roast pork with trimmings was tasty my husband did not find rest of menu choice enticing so chose meat balls in small dish with meagre trimmings so not really a dish for a man at lunchtime. We were advised there were no desserts on this special menu so after eating the 2 main courses before they got cold opted for 2 cups of hot chocolate later and both of us felt the adjoining Brewer's fayre menu on each week of £10 for 2 meals had far more choice and portions were ample so felt there was no comparison with the Dobbies meal and would not be inclined to do that again. Have to say I go regularly with friends and find the monthly voucher scheme for drinks for two very popular and am a big fan of the membership.Staff friendly too despite slow service occasionally.

“Expected more from Dobbies”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Went for lunch here on a Sunday. The food was very expensive, and the whole cafe was very unclean. The tables seemed alright, but when you looked down at your feet, you found a huge variety of scraps that had clearly been lying around all day. Food was quite good, but not an overall pleasant experience.
