Mamas homemade Moroccan pancakes...

Sharing our experience of growing up in a Moroccan household is something we love to do.. HOB is an extension of our home and with a bite of mamas pancakes you'll feel like you're sitting amongst the magic and mayhem of Marrakech. 


Founded by our father 'Mr A,' reinvented by my brother and I. 

The menu is inspired by our Middle Eastern heritage and love of its flavours and spices.. British food with North African and Mediterranean accents, to complement a multi-cultural palet. From traditional Breakfast favourites to unexpected versions of the familiar!

Become part of the HOB family...

We are looking for a QUICK and EFFICIENT breakfast chef, chef assistant and waitress/sandwich maker, with the necessary experience to cope with our very busy breakfast/brunch trade on Saturdays and Sundays mainly!...
