As we were away for a long weekend of R&R, we decided to indulge in breakfast out.... We went to Hobbs House as it was recommended by our landlady, and it didn't disappoint. Lovely coffees and the breakfast sandwiches we had were cooked exactly to our rather specific requirements. The staff were lovely and very accommodating. All in all, a... More

We had a snack here in a nice simple setting upstairs with friendly staff. The croque monsieur is overpriced and rather bland. The gluten free brownie was very luscious and the tea and coffee were as expected.

Have eaten here on a number of occasions and can't fault either quality of the produce or the service. Called in during the festival weekend and despite it being busy, again service was faultless. Yes, perhaps some of the bakery items are more expensive when compared to other high steet establishments, but Hobbs are Artisians. You get what you pay... More

First of all, everybody says they do fantastic bread, and I understand they’ve been on TV or something – I can't comment, as I’ve never bought bread there. What I have done is pop in – twice – for a Croque Monsieur (toasted ham and cheese sandwich with a university education, sorry, price), and both times (unless somewhere is REALLY... More

We visited this bistro/bakery twice during our stay. The first time we had a takeaway lunch which just tasted so fresh, the bread was incredible and we would highly recommend you take a visit if you are in the area. The second visit was for coffee and cake and we certainly were not disappointed. Really relaxed atmosphere, fantastic, friendly staff... More

I have had a number of meals here and the quality of the food has been consistently excellent. There is a bakery/patisserie downstairs, and the restaurant decor upstairs is simple and unpretentious. I had the best vegetarian burger I have ever had here. The other nice aspect is that the menu changes with the seasons so you always get something... More

I'm not usually someone who leaves any food on the plate at the end of the meal, but I couldn't finish the burger I ordered at Hobbs House. I'm sure it was good quality meat, but tasted awful, only rescued by smothering it in sauce. A burger should be juicy and flavoursome in its own right, but this wasn't. I... More

Their cakes and bread are marvellous ... they do however make rather a large cappuccino, much to my horror. Still, this is not to take away from the awesomeness of their scones, rolls and other pastries. Do be careful if you buy something that looks like a beautifully soft pecan Danish - nearly broke all my crowns as I bit... More

This is a great place and very popular. I've been going for years. Sadly, had a disaster this week and its important that its just a blip and hopefully not a trend! So, there were lots of staff and no excuses, but service was dopy and slow. I ordered the burger and asked to pay extra for gherkins, whereby I... More
