Garden Centres

Dobbies

Cygnet Park, Phorpres Way, Peterborough PE7 8FZ, UK – 01733 898640

Afternoon tea review. Last visited in June 2017 and to be honest, was not impressed so I was not expecting much from this visit. Was very surprised then with what received, all of which was good! I bought some clotted cream with me as there was none for the scones last time but it was not needed this time as we were each given a little pot. Nice sandwiches, nice cakes, nice venue.

Just home from Dobbies after having AFTERNOON TEA. Service was excellent. I felt like a VIP for a while. Nice fresh sandwiches and scones. I had cakes with no chocolate as I am allergic to it. Plenty of tea or coffee. You did yourselves proud Dobbies. I will return.

Notcutts

Oundle Road, Ham Lane, Orton Waterville, Peterborough PE2 5UU, UK – 01733 234600

A shadow of its former self and still as overpriced as ever. I felt the choice was sparse and the place is definitely showing its age.

Karmen is the best employee, super friendly and always keen to help. Give that women a pay-rise.

Homebase Clearance Outlet - Peterborough

Eastern Ind. Est, Padholme Rd E, Peterborough PE1 5XL, UK – 0345 640 7545

This is a former branch of Homebase that now just sells discounted DIY goods. It has some excellent bargains and is laid out in a very similar way to any other DIY shop. The stock is not just old Homebase stock that is being sold off, they are always adding new stock. You can't find the breadth of items you normally would in a hardware shop but that's to be expected from a discount chain. They clearly sell whatever they can get at a low price. Quality isn't an issue as there are a lot of big name brands for sale. There are most of the normal departments that you'd expect. It had everything from garden furniture to tools to soft furnishings and plumbing. All in all its a good place to go before trying other hardware shops.

Lots of items from homebase in this outlet centre at reduced prices compared to the recommended retail prices. All departments as you would expect in a regular homebase except in an outlet. Bargains to be had if you know what you are looking for. Stock always changing. Well worth a visit. Staff helpful and friendly.
