“Great meal on re-opening night”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

My wife and I enjoyed a great (mainly veggie) meal at the New Hobbit after reading about the re-opening. All three courses tasted and looked good and the Sauvignon Blanc was excellent value. Would heartily recommend giving it a try - it's nothing like the place it once was and which gave rise to the poor reviews of 2012 and earlier. A good selection of hand-pulled beers too.

After arriving on 16th March... We received a very warm welcome in the newly refurbished (literally gutted the whole building) Hobbit. The staff were friendly and well drilled. Couldn't have been more welcomed. From reading some of the reviews upto the beginning of March (and the pics) ignore! This is not the way the NEW hobbit looks or is operating. Well worth a look... excellent setting, great staff and lovely products! PS Swimming pool is not terrible... there just isn't one at the venue!

having gone to the hobbit on the 14th march 2013 looking to redeem a kgb deal was told that the establishment had changed hands and that he ran off with all the kgb money in the region of £75,000 and we was obviously dissapointed, angry and after a long journey was tired, but the new owner after explaining to us what the situation was the way he treated us was fantastic, he first offerd us a complimentary drink and then proceeded to try and get us other accomodation as the rooms at the hobbit were not finished, he was genuinlly concerened about our situation, we did find alternative accomodation and he gave us a discount on the food which was absolutly fantastic decor in the new bar area is fantastic and i beleive this will be a (is)fantastic venue when finished for any celebration or get together of any kind 10/10 100/100 its just fantasic and friendly place, again food was out of this world that we went back the second night, on the second night which was the friday and busier but the service and standard did not drop one bit, for the review from r 1 ch4 on the 13th must have been to a different place because 100% it was not this hobbit

The menu was a very scruffy black board that contained dishes you will have seen in a hundred places before. The food I had was very average but the service was friendly and somewhat made up for the lack of skill in the kitchen.
The Hobbit is just another pub serving mediocre food.

We have just had a lovely day at the new hobbit. The new refurbishment is very stylish and we received a very warm welcome from the proprietor and the staff who made our mothers day lunch very special. We will certainly return again and would recommend a visit to this new establishment.
The warmth of the log fire made it a welcoming visit on such a cold winters day. The views are spectacular and are a must.
