                Nice atmosphere / vibe to the place. Punctual and polite service from the staff. Only point that could do with improvement is service / kitchens working better together eg. Ordered appetisers and starters and was asked if we want the appetisers first which we said yes. The porter that delivered the food brought starters before appetisers ! And was slightly gruff.

                Positioned in a hideaway room, seemed to get forgotten about for a while.Also right under the speaker, which was quite loud. Another table was then set up next to us which was very close

                Decor is lovely. DJs playing at the bar end - music was loud and a little unnecessary at 8pm when most people were eating. Staff were friendly but we were kept waiting for over an hour for our table. Food was good.

                The food and service was good but the toilets were very dirty. I did let a member of staff know so they could clean it up at the time. I think they should be checked more regularly for such a lovely restaurant.

                Always a GREAT place for a pleasant meal. However, the evening felt slightly rushed with waiters hovering around the tables every 7 minutes. The ambience lacked the elegance of our last visit as Trance/Dance music being played at an establishment which should play much more relaxed Jazz like music.

                We went here for New Year’s Eve and was surprised they didn’t continue to offer the Christmas menu. Christmas menu was much better than New Year’s Eve menu. It was £80 pp and 3 course,where as the Christmas menu was £35 for 3 course! I didn’t feel the price justified the food we had. The scallops came out cold. The steak only came with mash potatoes, whereas the Christmas menu it had seasonal veg and chips! The fish was over cooked and the top of was quite hard and quite salty. It wasn’t bad but wasn’t amazing. Standard. We felt the price increased due to NYE. The dessert is always far too sweet as always! The profiteroles were rock HARD. We didn’t put a complaint in as it would just dampen mood. Not sure if we’ll go here again.

                Not at all what I expected. Having initially been seated by a staff kitchen we got moved next to a very rowdy Xmas party. Service was chaotic and slow until we ordered drinks at which point they arrived faster than we could drink them. Food was fine and our eventual waitress was lovely but just an odd experience. Large amounts of staff floating around looking disinterested, other staff members and their friends took over the bar area later (which also randomly had a dj). Was not the luxurious special occasion I had booked for but certainly memorable

                We visited Noels Bar and Restaurant for the first time on 17th December and loved our experience. The staff were lovely and very obliging, the food was excellent and the wine was good - if a bit expensive. We were not put under any pressure to hurry up - indeed our reservation was for 1.45pm yet we didn't sit down at tour table til 2.30pm as we were enjoying cocktails in the bar area. My one gripe is that I was surprised not to be served any petit fours with our post lunch tea /coffee. Indeed we had to actually pay extra for them ! That aside we had a super meal and the staff were excellent.

                We had a good experience at Noel's - Food was good. The waitress was very attentive which was appreciated as there were several large groups so it would have been easy to overlook us.

                Awful meal. The scenery is nice but when we got to the table some of the cutlery and place mats were dirty. These were dealt with quickly however. Chewing gum under the table also a bit off putting. We ordered some cocktails and they got one wrong which wasn’t really a problem. My friend had the prawn starter and they were mouldy and so they sent a new one out. Went to the toilets and the hand dryers were broken meaning people had to use paper towels to dry their hands but they clearly had not emptied the bins in a long time as there was paper towels all over the floor. One of the toilets was blocked to the top which was really disgusting. The mains came out and they again got one wrong which meant I was without food whilst my friends ate so theirs would not get cold. The food was mediocre at best, fairly tasteless and not worth the money you pay. Would not recommend.

                Service for super great, food was really tasty. It could have been a little warmer. The noise level was way too high as a party of 10 behind us was making loud noises. I don’t think the management told them off. We couldn’t even hear ourselves talking. Definitely would go there again.

                Food very good although service a little too relaxed. A big negative for us was that we paid £35.00 for a well known bottle of Prosecco that sells for £7.00 in Tesco. So therefore the value felt poor and the experience a little less special. Would definitely recommend reviewing that. Very nice decor.

                Whilst the food was good the following issues were experienced - - The potatoes and seasonal veg were missing from our main meals and we had to ask for them. This caused a delay of around 8 minutes and most of the main meals had been eaten. - The private room was opened and caused a draft to where we was sat, the temperature of the air coming from this room was extremely cold and made it uncomfortable - Our second round of drinks took 10 minutes to arrive, despite being the only people in the restaurant. One of these drinks did not arrive and we had to ask for it 5 minutes later. - It was disappointing to see that the chocolate sauce on the tiramisu pudding was set solid on the plate and was not able to be eaten unless it was scraped off the plate. This was raised but we were told thats how its always been. A lovely looking restaurant with a nice atmosphere and nice food however the service left us disappointed.

                Our table was booked for 8, however we weren’t seated until 9.20. We had to chase and keep asking. I’ve been in before when they have kicked me off the table because they wanted it back, but we had to wait ages. They gave us our 1st drinks on the house to apologise, but still thats not really acceptable to wait that long could understand if we didn’t have a booking. But we noticed people who came in after us being seated but we weren’t. However, as always food was great! And the girl that serviced us was amazing too . So thank you :)

                ****AVOID**** Booked Noels a few months ago to celebrate my nans 80th birthday. Messaged them to say please make the visit extra special. We ordered food and our mains arrived to only be disappointed that our nans lamb shank (£25) was that hard she couldn’t cut it. The waiter tried to rectify this by giving my nan a fresh meal, which she asked for steak. The agreement was for this to come our with our deserts so she wasn’t eating on her own. Whilst waiting we ordered drinks, and was giving the wrong wine - another mistake. Deserts arrived and we had finished them - but no sign of the steak!! We had now been in the restaurant for 2.5 hours and all my nan has ate was some mash potato! By this point we are now all getting upset as what was meant to have been a special night - was completely ruined. I asked to speak to the main manager - (Laila I believe was her name) for her to smirk in my face whilst I was upset trying to tell her the situation. I found this DISRESPECTFUL AND RUDE! I burst into tears as I just walked off as she had now made the situation a lot worst. We all left asap- by that point the steak arrived (too late) and we walked out. I am disgusted with the restaurant and wouldn’t advise anyone to visit!
