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!

We were in Stratford and wanted to go somewhere for a light lunch and found this delightful place at beginning of pedestrianised area. You could sit outside but we chose to go in. Its all beams and nooks and crannies with lots of different areas with different chairs to sit in. You go to the counter, order your food and drink, take your drink to table and sit down-the food comes fairly quickly, obviously depending on how busy it is. And the choices of food, fabulous. I had a salmon and asparagus slice of quiche and it was very generous and delicious. The coffee was lovely. There were sandwiches, all sorts or wraps etc. and lots of different quiches. The cakes looked wonderful too. The toilets are on the ground floor and there is a disabled accessible one. I know this because I am disabled and as i can't carry anything they brought the tray for me. It was such a wonderful experience that we went back the next day. This time I had a tuna salad wrap with salad and crisps served beautifully on a long narrow dish. I had an apple juice in a bottle which was crisp and thirst-quenching. I also indulged [with my friend] in a scone with jam and cream which is obviously a speciality as I have never seen anything like it, it was sooooo tall,a fresh scone half followed my a tall tower of cream, then the other half perched on top, a truly spectacular sight. I was on holiday to a place I had never been and enjoyed this place immensely. I wonder if there are any other branches. Sorry forgot to mention prices-very reasonable.
