Dobbies Garden World, Unit 3, Melville Nurseries, Lasswade EH18 1AZ, UK – 0131 663 6220

Started cycling again after 40 odd years and hadn't a clue what I wanted. Staff were attentive and asked a lot of questions to find out exactly what type of cycling I would be doing to suggest the right bike. Spent a lot of time setting up the bike specifically for me. Have returned on several occasions ( due to my stupidity, not problems with bike ) and staff took time to explain things. They also made a couple of adjustments a minor repair and replaced a small part, all at no cost to me. Bit long winded when I could have said: Great shop, great customer service. Thanks guys.

Recently called in to enquire about E-bikes. Was given such detailed and enthusiastic advise whilst at the same time it not feeling like a big pressured sales pitch. Sadly I have chosen a rival brand that these guys didn’t stock but it was purely on price. I encourage anyone to call in here for a bike, you will be made to feel extremely welcome.

Fantastic, speedy and value for money! I popped in for what I thought would be a drop off of my bike to pick up in a few days. I knew I needed a new chain and cassette, but the staff told me it would take 5-10 minutes and did it. They also checked and adjusted my disc brakes. Not only this, they showed me how to do a better job myself in maintaining all three aspects so as to save me time and money in the long run. Very pleased, thank you!

Awesome service! Mangled my 29r wheel at Glentress. The guys at the bike station got me up and rolling again with fresh sealant too. Great job 🤙👌

I've been a few times to get wipers, bulbs replaced they're quite often busy so there can be a wait. Was there today as battery on my car's been acting up, I thought I needed a new one. Guy checked it for me and told me battery was fine but needed charged. I'm not very technical so he explained what id need to do, showed the best charger, saved me £30.

Today had cd player /radio fitted by Richard at straiton due to previous player being faulty. Very understanding team regarding previous player issue ,absolutely no problem with exchange and swap over ,great installation by Richard fitted in said time. Fantastic customer service with all staff at Halfords loanhead. James
