“Cats everywhere!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went there once and never again.Everything seemed like too much trouble.It was like being in a scene from Eastenders, if you like that sort of thing.There were cats everywhere.Don't know if they are pets or wild but it is something of a standing joke within the local community.

“A warm welcome in a wet & windy world - The Tykes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Having just spent two weeks on holiday in a flooded, deserted, closed down La Manga - thank God for Nobby's! One of the few places that bothers to open and also provide tasty home made meals at a reasonable price - Friday liver & onions and Sunday 3-course lunch served with friendly care kept us fed and sane. Friday music nights and Saturday quizzes hosted by Bill and his staff serving free bar snacks of cheese & onion/ham/egg sandwiches plus roasties/chips are always on our itinerary.

“I AGREE with the last review - cattery.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Dated bar and restaurant. Many cats going in and out of the dining room, bar and kitchen. That wouldn't be allowed in the UK so why would UK people allow this? It simply isn't hygienic and it's off-putting - we couldn't eat there so didn't stay or go back. The cats were all over the outside seating area which would have been very nice if it wasn't for the cats. I'm sure it would be far more popular if it wasn't for the cats.

“The most friendly atmosphere in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

Having just returned from La Manga we feel compelled to write a review on this hidden treasure.
Nobbys is without doubt the friendliest and most accommodating place to eat and drink whilst in the area.
They cater for all tastes and have always the time to pass on local knowledge having resided there for many years.
Your hosts Bill and Dawn Rimmer together with their helpful and obliging staff Jane and Karen make a lovely team that always make you feel welcome.
Whether seeking a nice meal for two or just popping in for a cup of tea (standing joke at Bills)! You will always get great service and be glad you did.
We wish them well and thank them for their hospitality extended to us on many occasions

Mike and gills
