Dobbies Clyde Valley
In an area not short of garden centres, Dobbies is the most popular for families with its children’s play area, acres of parking and kid-friendly menus. Though the setting is rural, it’s deceptively close to Glasgow’s suburbs and a step from Carluke, making it an easy day trip option. The restaurant has stations for salad, daily soups and simple hot meals (chicken and ham pie, sausage and mash, chilli con carne), paninis and cakes, with organic baby food and facilities to heat milk and jars. The supermarket vibe (Dobbies is owned by Tesco) means it’s not big on personality, but it is convenient, and the extensive outdoor seating has nice views. The aquarium adds extra interest for children and the toy and gift shop and small food hall make it a destination beyond the garden centre.
