Visited Dottie’s for a Saturday morning catch up over cake with a friend. We were greeted with the friendliest service and made to feel very welcome - the passion for providing quality gluten free food was very clear to see and the cakes were delicious! Had such a lovely morning tea that I ended up returning for lunch the same day! Highly recommended, whether you’re gluten free or not, for the quality of food and very warm welcome.

Thank you, it was lovely to see you twice in one day. It is so nice that you enjoyed your first visit so much you wanted to hurry back ;). We hope to see you again really soon.

Gorgeous freshly baked scones, lovely mini sponge cakes, and nice sarnies. They were very accommodating for my baby, who they provided crisps and jelly for, even after he threw most of his crisps on the floor! Will definitely visit again and have already recommend to my mum who requires gluten-free food

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Your little one really seemed to enjoy his jelly, he was so happy even though it must have been terrifically hot for him! We are so pleased you enjoyed your teas, it was so nice to meet you & we hope to see you all again soon x

From the ambience, to the helpful staff and excellent food we could not fault Dotties.
My friend and I will return no doubt with other friends.

Thank you, it is lovely to think you found your time with us was faultless, we try to give the best service we can (& we do feel guilty when we get busy & can't spend a few minutes with everyone who takes the time to come for a visit). We all look forward to seeing you again soon with some more friends

Found this place on trip advisor when looking for somewhere gluten free for lunch, not my husband and I had a panini, cake and tea.
Cannot praise this place highly enough, wonderful service from the moment you walked in. Food was lovely, cheap and you wouldn't know it was gluten free. My husband eats normal food and he couldn't tell the difference. Not only did we have a lovely lunch but they also sell gluten free products. We got some lovely looking rolls and some pizza bases which were tonight's tea. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Picture of amazing pizza we made with the bases below.

Thank you for taking the time to give us such a lovely review. I really hope you enjoyed your pizza's, the bases are one of our customer's favourite buy's at the tearoom as they are so delicious.
We are glad you found our prices cheap as the idea behind Dottie's was not to make huge profits out of our customers need to eat gluten free, dairy free, egg free etc, but to provide these items at the same prices (or cheaper sometimes!) to 'wheat filled' goods. That way, you can come to Dottie's as often as you like rather than just for a special treat :) (The bread from Wheat-Free bakery is purely a service we provide as we cover the postage so you can buy anything from one loaf upwards without paying high courier costs)

We've been visiting this cafe on and off for a little while for my mum because she is gluten free. We decided to use it for her 90th birthday for a group of her friends.

We ordered afternoon tea with a decorated Victoria sponge birthday cake made by the cafe. The food was absolutely excellent and there was plenty of it. The scones were cooked while we ate and you couldn't tell that any of it was GF. The cake was actually nicer than a none-GF cake.

The staff decorated the cafe for mum gave her a birthday card and were really attentive.

All in all, they made mum's birthday

Thank you for your kind review. It was so nice to be able to celebrate your mum's birthday with you all, you gave Dottie's a wonderful atmosphere that day. So pleased she liked her cake, the look on her face was lovely, she seemed so surprised. We look forward to seeing you all again soon x
