- high qualityOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 18/11/2014concise menu but high quality, local produce, good serviceSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great steaks! shame about the door!sundayluncherDined on 1/11/2014We were seated right by the door and that was the mistake, my fault I should have insisted not to sit there especially in a restauramt with other vacant tables and yes I spent the evening with a constant breeze down my back and people not bothering to close the door HOWEVER, the food was very good, starters of a small ommelette just the right size and perfectly cooked and risotto again perfect in taste and size.The steaks were really good; we prefer to eat steak unadorned by any sauces and with just a few potatoes and a salad and our preferences were happily met and our preferece for medium rare was done to perfection. So if you want a great steak go to Nobles BUT insist you dont sit by the door!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Surprise DelightHubbleBubbleDined on 18/10/2014A surprise dinner for my wife as we celebrated our 14th Wedding Anniversary and I do not think I could have chosen a better location. To say I was not disappointed is an understatement and my wife still raving about the evening which she enjoyed so much. The décor, service and welcoming staff was a major factor in ensuring this was a special eveningSpecial Features:
- deadcertDined on 14/10/2014The service was excellent, the food was superb and the wine list included several fine English Wines. It had been a while since we last ate there but we will be returning again very soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Perfect EveningGinasdineDined on 4/10/2014We booked Nobles after reviewing trip advisor and accessing their on-line menu. We arrived for our meal with our two children, who were the only children in the restaurant. This, however, was not even a little problem, the restaurant guests were lively and animated, and clearly enjoying their meals, and our girls were able to relax and enjoy theirs without worrying they were not really welcome. Staff were amazing, service could not be faulted, and the food was wonderful. Particularly welcome was complimentary water, and the home made bread. Portion size was perfect, neither too much nor too little, and presentation was lovely. The food itself was really very good. The only negative were that the hand cut chips were slightly soggy.Special Features:
- Lovely MealMattB123Dined on 1/10/2014My wife and I had a lovely dinner at Nobles. My wife is gluten free and I avoid cream but none of this was an issue for them. The risotto of blue swimmer crab was fabulous! If we are back in the area again, we will definitely pay a visit.Special Features:
- A Good Internet Findwedoluv2dineDined on 19/9/2014Not been in the area long so looked on the Internet. Nobles was a good find. My husband and I were looking for a restaurant not a pub for lunch for our Anniversary. Very clean, very smart decor and a fabulous welcome from Debbie. A good menu to choose from. A choice from a snack lunch or A la carte menu. We chose from both. The food was delicious served hot and presentation fabulous. We would certainly like to return next time for an evening meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dining at NoblesGilbunDined on 6/9/2014There is a limited menu choice with some specials, which to me is good news as a huge choice means tired food being warmed up. The cod was excellent as was the risotto starter. Nobles represents good value and the staff were friendly and competent and unlike many restaurants they remembered who'd ordered what.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 20/8/2014Lunch with old foodie friends - very good meal had by all - mainly fish of the day (plaice) and one tuna nicoise. Paul in the kitchen, faultless food and service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- LunchJaneDined on 16/8/2014We felt that the place is much more of a cafe than a restaurant. The lunch menu had reasonable choice, however small portions and very expensive additions of chicken and bacon to complement basic Caesar and Waldorf saladsSpecial Features:
- ExcellentDeliciousDined on 15/8/2014We had a girlie supper out. The menu had lovely and had different choices. The service was excellent and the staff were kind and helpful. They were happy with all our questions and prepared our meals to suit our needs! It was the best meal I have had out in a long time.Special Features:
- Fabulous food!LGFoodLoversDined on 13/8/2014Will definately return for food & attentive service. Only minor niggle was decor & music not "modern" would have personally liked chill-out modern background music & decor updating but might not get a table when we want as we are local, so maybe better leave as it is!I would recommend this to a friend.
- lourichDined on 9/8/2014Excellent greeting from staff on entering the restaurant, superb food, lovely atmosphere and service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lovely Saturday lunchMattnMelDined on 2/8/2014My partner and I went to Nobles for a Saturday lunch treat and it was well worth the visit. Booked online through Toptable earlier in the day and were greeted when we arrived by a waitress who offered us a choice of tables inside or out. The menu was short and very clearly presented with a couple of specials of the day explained by the waitress. The wine menu was broad and also very reasonably priced with several different bottles very similarly priced so we didn't feel restricted by the prices. The dishes were cleanly presented with minimum fuss. Three courses for two people from the a la carte menu, a pair of cocktails to start, a bottle of wine and a service charge for less than £100 is great value. We look forward to returningSpecial Features:
- Excellent lunchpinzonDined on 25/7/2014My wife and I with two family members from New York had lunch at Nobles. Everybody enjoyed their food, it was good quality and very well cooked and presented. We can certainly recommend it and we will be returning.Special Features:
- A really must try!!1wholuvsfoodDined on 18/7/2014Fantastic food- a really lovely restaurant - staff very friendly. We would fully recommend having an evening meal at this restaurant.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 11/7/2014A lovely restaurant! Excellent food and wine with friendly unobtrusive service. Will definitely recommend!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ReTyredgroupDined on 11/7/2014A very pleasant meal, served by a very bubbly and personable lady. Picked out meal off the web site menu, only to find the menu had been changed several times that week. I had the crab risotto, starter followed by cod with cabbage and new potatoes/ bubble and squeak, the cod could have been a larger portion. The fruit pancetta was delicious. A nice touch were the non alcoholic cocktails. Overall a very enjoyable luncheon, which could have been purchased at most decent restaurant's The main draw back - there is no parking. For persons with disabilities it is a long arduous walk, from the car parks. If the weather is inclement guests still have to walk a distance in the rain..Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great lunchGPMSMITHDined on 5/7/2014We had a great lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very niceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 21/6/2014We were visiting the area and this restaurant was on a list given to us by our hotel. We reviewed the menu on line and booked by the same method. The food was very good in taste and value. The atmosphere was pleasant and the staff friendly . I would recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A long-overdue pleasure.silkydadDined on 10/6/2014Finally experienced dinner here after having meant to for ages. What an absolute pleasure!!! Excellent food and service. Loved it! My new favourite restaurant. Although it's an 80 mile round trip, I'm already thinking who to invite on my next visit there. Will definitely be back soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pleasant modern dining experienceGrandeaterDined on 7/6/2014A bright modern restaurant with a welcoming atmosphere. Staff were attentive and pleasant. My blue crab risotto starter was tasty but warm rather than hot. My wife chose the tempura battered fish which she said was delicious. For mains I chose the lamb which was certainly hot but there was as much fat as meat on the slices although it was tender and tasty enough. My wife had the chicken breast and stuffed leg which she enjoyed very much. She passed on dessert but I had the coffee parfait which was excellent. All in all a pleasant dining experience. I would recommend it but would personally not rush back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nobles first time eating hereFirstTimers1Dined on 22/5/2014Very welcoming front of house - food flavours higher end than the norm. Vast wine list. Menu slightly limited but have a daily local special where poss. Liked the fact that they source local produce. We had the Chateaubriand although very good (a bit pricey) though you did get a lot of meat. Homemade chips could have been crispier. I had a delightful parfait and hubby had an exceptional amaretto coffee. Overall very happy with Nobles.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- T60PDined on 21/5/2014Perfect for anyone who prefers a select (rather than extensive) menu, with dishes beautifully prepared from high quality ingredients and well presented. The coffee and praline parfait was superb. A friendly welcome and excellent service. We'll definitely go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 17/5/2014Lovely evening meal at Nobles, attentive staff, all very pleasant and tasty
- Lunch @ NoblesBexhilldiners14Dined on 8/5/2014We won this meal in a raffle - 3 course lunch. We went mid-week and had one of the best meals ever. The service was warm and unstuffy and the choices on the set menu different from the average restaurant. And it didn't disappoint on flavour and presentation. We are looking for an opportunity to return with friends. Another thing we appreciated was that the tables were spaciously arranged - on a busy evening you would still feel comfortably separate from other diners.Special Features:
- good food no atmospherecloudmonkeyDined on 2/5/2014The food was amazing but the restaurant lacked atmosphere, the restaurant was so quiet you could hear the conversions from all the tables. Despite the good food and service I won't be eating here again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lovely foodRolandDined on 15/4/2014This is the 4th time I've been to Nobles and the food has never disappointed. The ambience was not good as there were only 4 people in the restaurant including us. The service was very good. I definitely recommend this restaurant and would go again.
- LovelyOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/4/2014Great meal for two at the end of a week long holiday in Sussex. The mains were particularly yummy with gorgeous flavours and fresh tender meats! And a good selection of wines to go with! My boyfriend particularly enjoyed trying a red dessert wine with his chocolate pud! A great British restaurant!I would recommend this to a friend.
- second visitstaffsDined on 4/4/2014We first visited for lunch which was great, so thought we'd try evening meal with friends. Food fantastic, service - excellent, helpful attentive waitress although due to her apparently being on her own service was a little slow. Good menu, crab risotto fab as was the salmon starter. Cod was amazing and highly recommended. On whole excellent choice of restaurant, highly recommended. A real gem in battle!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- the best eating place in battletopdog123Dined on 15/3/2014the best eating place in battle well worth visting again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Enjoyable lunch in BattleBroGreboDined on 12/3/2014This eaterie is on the High Street of Battle with plenty of parking nearby. Our welcome was warm and whilst there were few diners the service was excellent. Very pleasant informative waitress. Three of the party had french onion soup from the luncheon menu followed by fish - each cooked to their own preference; battered, panfried or panfried in caper and butter sauce. The fourth person had a risotto for starters and a salad nicoise served with seared tuna to follow. Good selection of ice creams and sorbets especially the Bramley Apple. Excellent selection of cheeses with ample crackers. Not the largest portions but sufficient for lunch. The place is clean - the toilets are immaculate.
- Great food, way over priced.couple2001Dined on 8/3/2014Booked this restaurant as it's near to where we live and because it was a special occasion. I was aware that the venue was on the expensive side however was surprised at how expensive compared to other fine dining establishments. Good food but for what we got I felt a little ripped off. Won't be attending again as believe that their are better restaurants which are just as good and half the price.Special Features:
- Birthday LunchCornwallTravellerDined on 4/3/2014My husband booked a table for lunch to celebrate my birthday. The food was amazing, just right amount for lunchtime and not overpriced. Service was good, would definitely recommend it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Ruined our night outChewbaccaDined on 1/3/20143 chewy sirloin steaks. Water marks on the steak knives. Had to ask for the table to be wiped clean two times. Bread crumbs in the bottom of the not too cold jug full of tap water. They thought they were doing us a favour by not charging us for the 3 chewy steaks. We was told chef agreed & they were extremely chewy. I then ordered a fillet steak & my dining companions had to wait for me. The fillet steak was how ever divine. My point is bad customer relations, we didn't order desserts......that should of been your cue to come over & offer desserts on the house. We'll stick to our usual haunt....the wild mushroom
- Enjoyable First VisitSparkleDined on 1/3/2014I shall definitely return to this pleasant local restaurant. The food was delicious, with interesting menu choices and all round good service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- warm friendly restaurantkevski100Dined on 15/2/2014A restaurant where we were very well looked after. Food was spot on. The only gripe i had was that there werent quite enough vegetables compared to the amount of meat i got. I was left with quite a bit of meat at the end and would of liked a bit more veg but apart from that everything was superb. Would dine here againSpecial Features:
- romantic mealOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 15/2/2014we enjoy our evening very relaxed, lovely staff, and good food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fabulous!DoodleDined on 8/2/2014We come to eat at Nobles every couple months, as a treat, and because we know we are guaranteed a perfect evening, with no surprises. As ever we had a fantastic meal, with excellent, friendly service, great wine and a lovely atmosphere. Thank you Nobles! :)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Value for money?twfolkDined on 7/2/2014The starters were excellent, two of the party had the parfait and I had a warm salad of black pudding & chorizo. My wife chose the vegetarian ash coated cheese for her main which was well presented and tasty; our friend had the fillet steak (£6.50 supp) which was cooked as ordered and I chose the sirloin steak from the fixed price menu, a poor choice as it was a minute steak about 80-90 grams only served with 1/2 dozen home made chips and a pepper sauce no other garnish. Overall a tasty meal but my main was pointless and should be removed from the menu or be correctly described. I would visit again but will be wary of my choice. Oh excellent value wines as well!I would recommend this to a friend.
