“lovely food, good service”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

Nicely laid out interior with a variety of table sizes. A varied menu including specials and local produce (meat and seafood). Friendly service, good food and nice atmosphere. But informal with it.

“Wedding anniversary treat”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

The food was simply fantastic. We booked our table for Saturday evening. The service was second to none, we did not feel at all rushed. The portions were sufficient, tasting utterly divine. We would highly recommend this bistro for anyone wanting a quieter meal than the local pubs offer.

“Nice dinner....”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Had dinner whilst staying in Croyde. Compact place but should not deter. We shared a cheese fondue between four and there was plenty to go round. Children had pizza each but could have easily shared one between them, waiter offered to box up the remaining pieces. Adults had the Pork Belly and Beef Wellington both were good.
Overall a nice place to eat.

“Poor”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Hobbs has nice decor with a vague moroccan theme. The food was overpriced for what was served, the Lamb tagine was lacking taste and any character and the chicken and mushroom strogonoff was very average. Other starter dishes of fish seemed from a bygone era of standards which was also the average age of the other diners who looked happy enough, so I guess it was just us, but we did feel it was a bit of a ripoff sitting in the middle of touristy Croyde, not having to make much effort.

“great little place”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

We went here on our last night in Croyde - we all had something different and everything was delicious and well presented - from both the standards menu and the specials board. Not cheap but a lovely evening guaranteed. friendly staff.
