Dobbies Garden Centre, Cirencester
Pleasingly, the range of house plants on offer was larger than the majority of garden
centres we have recently visited. They were attractively laid out and the plants were of
good quality with average prices.
INDOOR SALES AREA
Inside Dobbies at Cirencester, the sales area is large, clean and pleasantly laid out.
Too much like a department store for our liking but that is a personal opinion.
It boasts a food hall with an excellent organic butchers and a large cheese
counter. In addition, it had all the other normal store areas - cards, gifts,
clothes, garden furniture etc.
AQUATICS / PETS CENTRE
There was a medium sized aquatics centre stocking a reasonable range of fish and
aquatics accessories. There was also a pet centre with all the normal range of feeds
and accessories although we saw no pets for sale/
CAFE AT DOBBIES GARDEN CENTRE
The cafe area at this Dobbies was very large with lots of seating area. It was well
laid out and clean. The food on offer was light lunches and snacks. The light lunches
ranged from about �3 to �6.50 and included baguettes, salads, hot potatoes and the like.
Coffee, tea and cakes were also sold. The food quality was average, not our first port
of call for a lunch.
If you use a wheelchair then Dobbies will cater for you well. The paths are wide and
uncluttered with wheelchairs available for no cost at the entrance.
Toilets were in keeping with the rest of the store, clean, functional and with no queues.
The car park was large with sufficient spaces. It was flat, dry and had a hard surface.

Dobbies at Cirencester was similar to many other large, modern garden centres. It provided a
good range of plants outside and a good range of goods inside. The cafe looks good and is
pleasantly arranged with a large amount of space.
For a garden centre, however, it is impersonal and the staff are not
particularly approachable. The five year guarantee on hardy plants is to be applauded
