About Us

Hobbs the Kitchen Shop is situated in Penzance in the beautiful area of West Penwith, Cornwall.

Hobbs was opened in 1994 and we’re still going strong twenty-one years later. The girls here are all keen cooks and love nothing better than swapping recipes and chatting about how to get the best from your cookware.

We stock a wide range of kitchenware, from pots & pans to gadgets & widgets. We love kitchenalia in all its forms. If you want something but don’t know it’s name, give us a try. We probably know what you’re after. If we don’t have it in stock already, we will do our best to source it for you!

Much of our stock comes direct from manufacturers in Spain, Italy and Japan, which helps us give you good value for your money.

We also try to support local designers and manufacturers where we can, British designers like Joseph Joseph and Sophie Allport as well as Cornish textiles from Betty Boyns based in nearby St Just. Alan Silverwood Bakeware is another great UK made brand, perhaps you’ve seen some of their silvery cake tins on a popular bake show?

We love seasonal produce and if you want to find a restaurant, a foraging lesson or the nearest farmers market, we know what’s on. Are you the cook who wants “one knife for everything” or the fisherman who needs a fish filleting knife? We can help.

We’ve been described as an Aladdin’s cave, a treasure trove for chefs and a toy shop. Pop in and see why.

You can find us at the top end of Causewayhead in Penzance and our nearest car park is just a stones throw away. Use the postcode TR18 2SP for parking if you have a satnav. Or TR18 2SS to get you to our door.
