  • A Good Internet Find

    Not 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.

    There 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.

    We 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 salads

    My 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 returning

    A 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..

    A 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.

    Very 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.

    We 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.

    We 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!

    This 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.

    Booked 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.

    3 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

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 again

    The 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!

We dined with our friends and were all very satisfied with the quality of service, not only were the hosts very kind and accommodating but the whole atmosphere when you entered were warm and relaxed but with an element of home comfort. We loved it so much we can't wait to return.

    Went for Sat. night dinner. Restaurant attractively decorated with well-spaced, good-size tables .We had a warm welcome from staff. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Very varied menu with food attractively presented and full of flavour. The only negative was the level of sound. A group was present who were very loud and made conversation difficult at times. The hard-wood floor amplified this. Would definitely eat there again but at a less busy time/date. Not sure how wheel-chair users would fare - there are steps up to the entrance. Overall, all four of us had an enjoyable evening.

    Quality in terms of food and service is the key word here. Dining out a lot in the South East and London I am easy to please- as Noel Coward said I am always happy with the best! What I like is the firm impression that your meal has been cooked for YOU. The menu never disappoints. Service is always very good and I really hope Nobles can maintain the high standard.
