Went to the Hob Nob restaurant for a dessert. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the atmosphere was very cozy and comfortable. The desserts were delicious, especially the creme brûlée. Overall an amazing experience.

This is an old house and very quaint. It was still decorated for Christmas and we felt like we had stepped back in time....fire burning, soft romantic... More

We had dinner here one night in January - so the restaurant was quiet. The service was very good and our meals were excellent. Conveniently located. We would definitely return.

This place was recommended by our hosts at Kellar House and they were right on. The food was amazing and service first rate. The decor was century old classic and very inviting. Will come back again for sure!

My husband and I visited HobNob during a trip to NOTL. We were impressed with the Christmas decorations and the gas fireplace. The dining room boasted a lovely chandelier and armchairs at the tables.
