Entrance to Dobbies Garden Centre at Gailey We visited Dobbies in Gailey towards the end of September and found that many of the plant bays were empty. This reduced the selection of plants available to an unacceptable level and we wondered what was going on! Further investigations revealed that many Dobbies garden centres reduce their stock after the summer peak period to a very low level. A very strange way to operate a garden centre.

Weeds in plant pots If you click the picture on the left you will be able to see more clearly some large weeds set amongst this plant for sale. Many others were in a similar condition. So we can't really recommend a trip to this garden centre out of season because not only is the plant selection low but the condition of the plants is not up to Dobbies normal high standards.

We will visit Dobbies in Gailey again at a different time of year and let you know how we find it.

CAFE AT DOBBIES GAILEY


All the normal food is available at Dobbies Gailey cafe with a range of snack foods and three main meal specials at around the 8 mark.

Cafe meal We arrived a bit earlier than normal for our review so we opted for the English breakfast. You get six items for 5.50. We were not impressed! First, we gave the scrambled eggs a miss because they were a solid mass with a definite blue tinge to it. Apparently this is caused by the scrambled eggs being left on the counter heater too long.
Food quality is below average and does not represent good value.

A view of the garden centre cafe The other problem with the food is that it was lukewarm making the whole eating experience rather unpleasant.

The cafe decor is pleasant and modern but not much thought has been given to the layout of the tables and chairs. The carpets are marked an stained and in need of a good vacuuming.

Dobbies at Gailey have their own club card scheme (the Dobbies Group scheme) with various benefits for their members. Details of the club and a comparison with the clubs of other garden centres can be found by clicking here. If you are thinking of visiting this garden centre to make a purchase it may well be worth taking a look at their discounts and rewards.
