Nestled in between the stalls of Borough Market and under the London Bridge railway tracks, Hobbs has all the charm of an old-school barbershop, with a few hip twists. A mishmash of ’70s tat cover the walls – Bowie posters, antlers, violins, and saucy seaside postcards in golden frames – and Union Jack flags dangle from the ceiling, semi-ironically. It’s no-nonsense here, just cheap-and-cheerful cuts and beard trims, with no appointment necessarily. But sharply-dressed barbers Ian and Wayne will give you a neat, stylish, precision cut, complete with cutthroat-razor finish and plenty of cheeky banter. The train station-style waiting room, in a separate wood-panelled room, is particularly nice touch, where you can read a back-catalogue of Empire magazines or simply watch foodies wander about the bustling market.

This info is so out of date. It's £19 for a cut now and a very poor cut at that! I had to ask for a neck shave at the end...never before in a barbers have I had to. I felt it was a mad rush to get finished and get the next guy in. Once home and had a closer look it is very choppy and not neat. I will stick with my local barber at £9 who gives a proper cut and deserves the tips.

Star rating? Had to give 1 to enable a comment but it deserves 0! Even the decor is boring and dirty now.

I've been going to Hobbs for a few years now and I always get great service. Ian is a great guy and always getsthe cut spot on.

Didn't use a cut-throat razor, on request said they stopped using them. Barber rude, answered phone during cut and appeared to have some sort of gastric reflux with smelly burps passing my way on 4 different occasions. NEVER RETURNING!

I wouldn't recommend this place at all. It's rushed and my hair is different lengths. Waste of money as I'll be going to have it evened up somewhere else!

Luke

Friendly barbers, quick service, and great results - my wife now won't let me get my hair cut anywhere else!

Just got my hair cut here for the first time today, without doubt the best cut I've had in a very long time. Friendly atmosphere, good music & decor.
