Where do I begin?!?! A party of 8 visited this 'pub' last weekend. They have changed the decoration since we have last been here and also the outside looks to be having work done. We sat down after ordering our drinks by a very friendly and helpful girl. Then opened the menu. Wow! The menu read beautifully and mouth wateringly.... More

Sorry you feel like that. We have only taken on the Hobb a few months ago and as you can appreciate it takes time to set up new menus and more importantly, find the right chef for this venue.

Went in for a drink and its a nice little pub with a great historic atmosphere! The rumors of a ghost add to the feel and age of the place. definately will go back!

On visiting the Hob Inn with my partner for a drink, I found the outside of the pub very attractive, unfortunately, I did not enjoy my visit, the service was poor and we did not feel welcome. We will not be going again
