Always lovely to dine here and the food is locally-sourced and deliciously prepared. Timing of the food is also great and service is attentive and unobtrusive. A great little spot in the Charles Inn.More

We enjoyed dinner at Hob Nob several times over the winter in both the main dining room and the bar area and really enjoyed the friendly and professional servers and excellent food. The bar area is especially enjoyable for more casual dinners. Highly recommend!
