The proprietors were such friendly people and the food wonderful -home made on the premises . We had a lot of fun dressing up Hobbit style for photos and enjoyed ourselves so much we returned for lunch of delicious soup - just like Mum used to make. The interior captured the theme of Hobbitan. They even supplied us with the recipe of a yummy cake served fresh from the oven. We were able to spend a wet cold morning in the charming warm hospitality. An experience not to be missed. Thank you

We were just passing through Matamata, when we spotted signs for Hobbiton. Although we didn't have time to do the coach trip, we visited the tourist information. We parked in the car park just up Hetana Street and spotted this quirky little café. Being English, we had the obligatory cup of tea and they provided this with china tea cups/saucers and teapot. Fantastic. And, may I add was a superb cup of tea. The blueberry bran muffin was the best I think I have ever tasted. It was a family run café and the staff were very friendly. If you want to, you can don a hobbits outfit and sit and have your pictures taken in the hobbit lounge :) Alas, no pictures!!
