Unfortunately we must have picked a popular night to be eating out and was only left with Hobbs bistro to dine.Immediately the waitress got our backs up by being uninterested in us and leaving us for quite a while until my wife had to ask to be served! The food is pricey to say the least and disappointing when it... More

We had a very lovely meal here. The service was amazing and the seafood paella was of a very high quality. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Pros: *Waitress was lovely, really polite and friendly *Nicely decorated *Starters were good Cons: *3 out of 4 mains were very disappointing (lacking in flavour,... More

We were lucky enough to get a table at the last minute and were really happy with the evening. Lovely, polite and efficient staff serving us and tasty food too. The portions were generous and the prices very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.

Booked for a big birthday meal. They had kindly put a balloon on the table which was a nice touch however the food and wine is a bit over priced for the standard delivered. Unfortunately we found a hair in the food which was unfortunate. I found the front of house manager was not that interested in rectifying the issues... More

Hobbs is very relaxed but also very popular, especially during holiday time. But I was lucky and as a solo diner easy to fit in for a fast bite :) Staff were brilliant... More

My wife and I ate here on a Thursday night in early Sept. The Bistro is quite small but has a good vibe, service was good, efficient and friendly. I had the Belly Pork which I really enjoyed, my wife had Red Thai Veg Curry and she really enjoyed hers as well. We had a bottle of the house red... More
