“Pre wedding dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

We booked a table for ten for dinner the night before our wedding. We had not eaten there before but family members had. The location was convenient to us all and on road parking available.

The surroundings are lovely, clean, attractive without being too fussy. The staff attentive and polite.

It was suggested by the staff that we pre order to save waiting as we didn't want the evening to become too protracted. We are glad that we did pre order as they did get busy.

The food was tasty and plentiful with a good choice of starters, pizza's, pasta's etc.

I would not hesitate to recommend Bobby's.

“Late Booking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

We rang-up `on the spec` on the staurday hoping to get in at Bobby`s the same evening, as we had friends staying over the weekend and didn`t fancy cooking! We didnt really expect to get in as we know it is a very popular venue with a limited number of tables, so when they explained that they had a couple of very large parties in that night we said we understood and thanked them.But then they explainesd that if we could be there for seven fifteen then the chef could accomodate us before the large parties arrived and placed their orders. We thought this was very accomodating of them and an indication of the good service they are well known for and we immediately agreed to the early table.

It was an excellent choice as the food was delicious. The menu is quite extensive and we all found some of our favourite dishes from starters through to desserts which were very wel presented and cooked to perfection. The bill for the four of us including a reasonably priced Italian white wine and a few bottles of Peroni came to below a hundred pounds, or 25 quid each, which we though was excellent value and a first class dining experience. Definitely will be paying them another visit soon! Great food, great atmosphere and all at great prices.

“Tasty food - if you can get someone to take your order”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

Italian restaurant in a former pub on a busy road - don't go during rush hour, the traffic noise is quite loud.

We had difficulty reservering a table here, and then found the place was only about a quarter full when we arrived, and for about an hour after. Strange.

Once we had a table, we quickly had drinks and a menu, but after that our waitress lost interest. She kept hovering over a group table, even though there was nothing to do there at that time. After having been ignored for twenty minutes, we urged a colleague to get her, and we were able to order. She didn't know the menu well, the menu choices we mentioned didn't seem to ring any bells, so we had to point them out on the menu.

After that things went better, because the chefs clearly know their business, and the food served was excellent and very tasty.

I did have to specifically ask for some cheese, whereas other tables got it without having to ask, I noticed.

My conclusion is that the food is definitely worth coming here for, but you may either have to have patience with the waiting staff, or urge them before your patience runs out, or come in a group - groups seem to get a lot more attention from the waiting staff.

“A Little Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Walked to Bobbys from the Marina on the recommendation from the berthing manager, what a super place, good food freshly cooked to order so worth the wait, friendly staff. Good choice of wine and beers.
Don't be put off by the exterior or the odd assortment of downmarket takeaways along the street, this restaurant is well worth a visit we will certainly go again.
