Wasn’t great. Drinks didn’t arrive until after food, food was really average even ignoring the price. Service was very rushed, really keen to just get us out so they could get another cover on the table. Busy which would have meant a nice ambience but rubbish music blasting out the whole time which spoiled it. Brought us a decorated desssert plate out for our anniversary which was a nice touch, I’d just mentioned it when booking but hasn’t expected anything. However the meal had been so average we didn’t really enjoy receiving it at that stage. Cocktails were good.

Scrumptious food. Excellent selection of drinks and unbeatable service. It is so nice to be greeted by genuinely friendly management and staff. The restaurant was very comfortable and the service was faultless.

Really friendly staff, food was served hot, music was great and this place just had a really nice vibe. My husband doesn't say this very often but he said this by far was his favourite place to eat.

Booked via open table for the requested time. Upon arrival we waited a while before receiving any acknowledgement even though someone was at the entrance. We were seated at table with no cutlery and then waited a while before we were served the food menu, then we had to ask for the drinks menu again. Our orders were taken, but an item was missed. We gave it time and then not receiving details (when asking twice) requested it be taken off the bill, as the main courses had been eaten by this point. My friends main dish was tepid warm but everyone else enjoyed theirs. I have been here before and the service was much better but tonight it was very dire sad to say. Must admit the waitress that served us lastly was helpful given the circumstance and it was agreed to remove one of the main dishes off the bill. Considering this is a high end chain, I expected better and hopefully going forward they can look to improve their customer service skills, along with timing of when dishes come to the table.

Fantastic service and an amazing waitress who answered our questions well … gave fabulous recommendations and was always prompt and available for our table. This was the first time dining in and would totally recommend. Kids menu was good and good value. My boys thought the chicken nuggets were the best they had tasted.

I have always loved dining at Noel’s Bar. However yesterday was not a good experience, my Sea Bass was nothing special at all. My fiend had a penne pasta dish which was quite inedible. So very disappointed, maybe it’s post lockdown and they are not back to normal service. I shall leave it a very long time before I return to dine here again

Really enjoyed the meal, lovely staff, bit quiet but too be expected on a rainy Monday. The only thing I would say with regards to negatives is the place is quite dated and could do with modernisation, though this is a minor niggle and the experience was otherwise excellent.

Staff are all very friendly. Restaurant is in a great location and has nice decor. A little confused/concerned that not all staff members were wearing a mask? Nor did they have an exemption lanyards on. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Drinks were on the expensive side, and service was a bit hit & miss, but overall we had a lovely meal. Will probably wait to return when the pandemic has passed.
