Well - I hadn't been to Hobbits for at least 10 years. From the outside it looks pretty average and inside it is pretty average, but that's the only negative I could possibly mention. The service is fast, fun, uncomplicated. The menu is quite long and has quite an emphasis on steaks. Kids are well catered for. The food was totally yummy - meat cooked perfectly to order. We all had a great time. Hythe isn't exactly over-run with decent restaurants, but this venerable institution is fantastic. Bill was about £25 a head including drinks and pudding. Good value.

All I can say is the food is fantastic! On the outside the restaurant may look small and the decor dated, but don't that put you off. I would always recommend the fillet steak Hobbits style. This is a fillet steak stuffed with boursin cheese, wrapped in bacon witha red wine sauce. You will never want to eat a steak from anywhere else ever again!

They also do a fantastic roast on a Sunday!

I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions when visiting Hythe. The staff are most accommodating, ambience warm and inviting with an innovative selection of specials on the board above the bar. One of my favourites is the devine Venison with a chocolate sauce. The selection of wines is good and the owner takes pride in his selection of ales.
The restaurant is in the middle of the pedestrian shopping area, a short walk from Hythe pier, so ideal for a day trip from Southampton.

We spent the day in the Hythe area on 30 October. At the last minute we decided to stay in Hythe for dinner rather than returning to Southampton, and what a lucky decision it was. Even though Hobbits had a number of reservations they managed to find us a cozy table with a friendly smile. The menu was extremely varied which we found a bit surprising for a small town restaurant. All four of us ordered something different, and for all four of us it was the best meal of our week-long trip through SW England. The food was prepared to a high standard, it was piping hot, and delicious. Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable about the food, and very friendly. This restaurant is not to be missed if you are in the Hythe area. It's well worth the trip across the bay on the ferry or a drive from Southampton.
