We wondered into Hobsons because of it's attractive external appeal on the busy pedestrian mall. The rooms are cozy (there is even an upstairs but we did not explore that part), the display cases chock full of visually appealing food that turns out to be very good! You order at the counter and bring your drinks to a table of your choosing and the wait staff will bring your food when it's ready.
We both ordered minty lamb pies that showed up on our table piping hot with flaky pastry and a savory center of minced lamb with subtle flavorings. They were accompanied by a rather good salad (with no rocket mix, the ban of salads to me). We also split a cream tea with scrumptious scones, clotted cream, and jam. The tea was hot and didn't taste like Lipton's...we drank all of it. For a party of two, we recommend ordering one cream tea which comes with a pot of tea for one and add an additional pot for the second person. You'll both of plenty of tea.
We highly recommend Hobsons and next time we will explore more of their desserts!
