Bloom­ing good grub at cen­tre

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - EATING OUT -

IHAVE dis­cov­ered that vis­it­ing gar­den cen­tres can be habit form­ing – and we don’t even have a gar­den – it’s the food you see. We’ve found they do good food at not bad prices with the chance to do a bit of re­tail ther­apy thrown in. Dob­bies eatery of­fers an eclec­tic mix from piz­zas to cur­ries, sand­wiches to salad bars. I was drawn to the lat­ter lured by the chal­lenge of how much I could get on one small salad plate (£5.25). Quite a bit it turned out, in­clud­ing a quiche, five bean salad, coleslaw, pasta, potato salad, cous cous and fresh pep­pers. And ev­ery­thing was fine, es­pe­cially the hint-of-Mex­i­can bean salad. Mrs B had the sim­ple tuna and cheese panini (£4.95). The gen­er­ous fill­ing was gooey and tasty, go­ing well with the crisps and side salad. And she was im­pressed by our lit­tlest one’s lunch. For just £3.95 she was able to tuck into a choice of five things plus a drink. Her cheese sand­wich was a per­fect size, and she was de­lighted with her Pom Bear crisps, fro­mage frais, oat­cakes and Jelly Tots. Mrs B and I also shared a de­li­cious creamy meringue that threat­ened us with sugar overload. This pen­chant for gar­den cen­tres is bear­ing fruit.
