My wife, daughter and I stopped off here on our way to Portpatrick. We took out annual Dobbies subscriptions, £10 for Direct Debits rather than £12 one-off payments, which gave each of us 24 coffee vouchers and two free garden pot plants. Excellent value!

First time at garden centre. Staff friendly and helpful when we asked for help. Got tea / coffee and 2 scones etc. Self service but helpful staff. Sat inside as windy outside. Spoke to lady clearing tables. She stopped what she was doing and had a conversation with us .The place was clean and she kept the tables clean also. Price was reasonable for what we got.
Went to gents toilet ,one urinal was blocked and half full and the automatic flushers did not work.
But according to the notice on the wall ,the toilets are checked regularly. A nice pleasant day out and we will be back.

0n holiday in the area went for lunch with grandson and his Mum. Beautiful day so we sat outside, only problem because there are so many gorgeous plants etc outside seating area plagued with wasps, should have stayed inside. Small play area for children saved grandson getting bored. We had baked potatoes and salad which were lovely and a boxed childs meal (five items of their own choosing). Extremely busy so food lovely and fresh. Would go back

On my way to culzean castle with my wife and elderly father and mother in law thought we would stop at dobbies in ayr for lunch.what a big mistake .father in law fancied a burger but what was in the hot plate looked so unlike a burgar that he opted for sausages and chipd and i ordered a slice sausage sandwich .what we got was what looked like three pieces of wood and some dry bread with what looked like a piece of carpet in it totaly inedible.when i asked if this was the only sausages they have i was told yes .pointed this out to the manageress .who could only say well the server did offer you something else.pointed out that no self respecting cafe would serve such rubbish .after much complaining two thirds of my money was refunded.and we left .and will never return.Dobbies
garden centre cafe .would not recommend it to my dog.

I was with a party of 26 elderly folk, and we were rained out in Ayr. We phoned Dobbies to see if they could take us, and they were very welcoming. They set us up in a private room, supplied lovely afternoon teas, and could have been more helpful. A member of staff even helped some folk onto the coach afterwards. Customer care gets top marks!
