GREENAPPLE CAFE AT DOBBIES BIRTLEY
Coffee, tea and cakes were all good.
The food is average to good but nothing to make it stand out from other cafes. There were no
queues when we visited.
The cafe has three separate seating areas. One indoors, one in a
covered patio area and one outdoors (see picture on right).
The decor is modern
but rather uninspiring. All areas are clean and the service is pleasant and helpful.
We would some up the cafe as serving decent food at reasonable prices. The
eating area was clean and functional but rather boring.
There was a small to medium selection of houseplants for sale. The range was
limited and the plants were displayed in an uninspiring manner. Quality was
excellent and the prices were about average.
This is not the garden centre to
visit for indoor plants.
AQUATICS AND PETS
Dobbies, Birtley have a medium sized aquatics centre with a small range of fish on

Our sat nav failed to get us to Dobbies Garden Centre at Birtley using the
postcode. We ended up about five minutes drive away. Strangely, the post code on the Dobbies
site differs to that on Google.
We then tried "Drum Road" and still couldn't find Dobbies. We eventually
asked a passer by. We would suggest that you follow the directions given on the Dobbies page
for their Birtley garden centre.
