We had been to Hobblers for the first time last year and had excellent food and service. So we made our way there again this year, hoping to have our evening meal. We were very disappointed to find the place is now closed! Apparently they are going to build flats on the site.

Dreadful to see Hobblers gone, now being converted to flats. So many happy memories, and a lost link with the old St Ives

Tried this for the first time at the end of summer and found it pretty disappointing, the flavours and presentation were old fashioned, quite gloopy flavourless sauces, the chips were simply cheap and tasteless, the mash wasn't really mash but badly crushed potatoes with little flavour. The actual steak under the sauce was cooked well which was the only saving... More

We were lucky to get a table for 6 last Saturday night (24/10/2015) despite not booking and it being the start of half-term. Needles to say St Ives was heaving! They offered us a table squeezed in a corner near the dumb waiter and the waitress station, and we gladly accepted as the chances of finding a restaurant as good... More

My wife and I each time we visit St Ives always make an effort to visit this restaurant. This time we visited with 2 friends on a Friday night we all said what a great meal and lovely staff. The lady who I guess owns the restaurant has always has made us very welcome. Well worth a visit.

When you walk past Hobblers you cannot help yourself from looking at the menu and peeking inside. It has all the right ingredients for a snug harbour side Resturant and the ambience and staff all add to this. The food and decor whilst good didn't blow me away and in terms of local restaurants it has some strong local competition.... More

We went as a family to celebrate my wifes 40th birthday. I booked a week or so before going not quite knowing what to expect as some of these so called quaint restaurants can be a let down, Not so in this case, it was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. On arrival the staff and owner knew who we... More

Lovely cosy atmosphere and delicious food. I had Mackeral very tasty it was fresh and had plenty of it, had it with mash and veg. My husband had king prawns, plenty of them and with chips all great. Definitely would go again, can't fault the evening. The staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for you
