Impeccable service from the moment we walked in the door. Nice relaxed and totally safe atmosphere. The food was sumptuous and the drinks were delightful.
It is difficult to find a fault with Noel's

The tables were not as spaced as I would expect for COVID-19 rules. None of the staff were wearing masks which made it very difficult to politely and safely interact when they Showed us to our table, took o order, delivered our meals or took the bill. The food was delicious as always but I was quite uncomfortable the whole time so wont be back until lockdown has eased.

£65 for two bowls of pasta, one cocktail and one tonic water. Beautiful restaurant but service was slow (although friendly). Both main meals were appetising. I don’t think we will bother returning in the future.

Food and first drinks were absolutely amazing but we ordered drinks after our starters which didn't arrive at all and we were left with our plates for a long time after we had finished. A MoS sincerely apologised and took our drinks off the recipt!

Very nice first time experience at this lovely Restuarant. I have nothing bad to say about it as I was impressed from start to finish. The service from our lovely waitress Imogen was honestly perfect!!! Couldn’t believe she was only working a few days into her job!!! Imogen was honestly a little dime!!!!

Understaffed for the amount of tables (maybe getting used to the government's eat out to help out scheme) but very attentive service. Food was amazing.

One of the worst experience I have had as a diner at a restaurant, the of the people at our table ordered full grilled lobster which it stated on the menu it was made with cherry tomato, white wine garlic and chilli. It came out with no lobster meat No tomato no garlic no chilli but a lobster shell smothered in cheese! The only bit of meat in the tail was like rubber. One of us that ordered the lobster was lactose intolerant so was unable to even try the meal. The restaurant then replaces his lobster with a steak which was covered in uncooked fat and look what can only be described as a price of dog meat!! I will definitely never be returning to noels again not only did we leave there early it ruined my whole birthday experience

Our 1st time here lovely place relaxing food lovely(apart from steak which was undercooked but changed it and recooked to my liking wife’s monkfish overcooked but replaced with no bother and free drinks!).
It was our anniversary so made special they brought out a lovely dessert with happy anniversary on. Our waiter Marco was brilliant nothing to much out the way for him !only problem was a speaker above our head asked to turn it down which they did but it gradually got turned up again ! Apart from that a great night and will be returning!

Food, staff and venue was fantastic! I would definitely recommend Noels Bar for food, drinks, cocktail in a spot right next to the canal, away from the noise. 5 stars!

We originally booked for the Afternoon Tea but got there to find there was no Afternoon Tea available so we had no choice but to opt for the set lunch menu which was good value for money but none of the desserts tickled out fancy. The non alcoholic mocktails were really pleasant. The vegetarian options were very unique, I really enjoyed the Aubergine Parmeigano but the halal options was a bit boring (chicken breast coated which came with chips, no sauce or veg so very dry). Personally I wouldn’t return for the lunch menu due to little halal options but I will have to revisit when the afternoon tea is being served again. The staff were lovely, restaurant was very clean and the ambience was spot on. They were having work done in the toilets when we visited so there was no water / flush but they told us it would be sorted in 10 minutes.

We ordered food and from each course there was items not available. Our steaks were not cooked to how we requested. No apologies and this is why I will not attend again

Overall enjoyable, however to advertise three lamb cutlets as a rack of lamb along with the price to match was a tad on the steep side.
