Service was extremely slow. Had a starter and one drink in an hour and a half. No one asked us if we needed any drinks whilst sat there with empty glasses. Had to constantly ask whoever was walking past for things to sit and wait for nothing to arrive. Someone even had their main without a drink which ruined it for them.

Our waitress was lovely, not sure what her name she was very attentive and did her best to get me an old sauce they used to serve with the salmon.

It was our 3rd anniversary and they brought us hot chocolates as it had a special meaning to us. As well a dessert that said happy anniversary!

The place it’s self is in a lovely location. However the service was absolutely appalling! I booked a table for 8 and wasn’t seated until 9pm. While we were waiting we didn’t get a drink for about 30mins. The service continued to be poor once seated at our table. This may be due to being short staffed and a full restaurant, however still not good enough. The food wasn’t even worth the wait! I had the steak which was poor quality. The toilets didn’t have hand soap or toilet roll in them apart form one cubicle. I did raise this with the front of house staff however didn’t rectify this. Based on this experience I will not return.

The staff were very welcoming. However the food was the disappointment, the options that we wanted they didn’t have. We then picked something else and a sharing dessert. But neither like the desert, in our opinion it wasn’t as good as it should of been.

Service was really slow and lack of communication between the only 2 waiters left us waiting for Parmesan and my side of broccoli so long I finished the rest of my meal before it came. The gentlemen waiter was lovely and smiley and tried to make it better but we were done by then. Food was bland. Unfortunately won’t be coming back although the setting was beautiful

My first time experience was lovely.
The food and drinks were great.
The staff could’ve been more attentive when it came to ordering food and drinks especially with it not being so busy.

I wouldn’t normally give a negative review but for the wasted money spent I just have to .
The food wasn’t great at all . We opted for the fish delux sharing platter but their menu never stated that it was a cold platter which was disappointing and slightly deceitful because we would never have picked it .
Their Greek salad was just some tomatoes, cucumber and lots of onions with feta. The only thing I enjoyed was the roasted potatoes
The spaghetti alla matriciana was nothing close to that! The food was tasteless in my opinion and as an Italian that food didn’t remind me of Italy at all and wasn’t worth the money we spent there .
I guess we just paid for the decor and the waterside location . Very disappointed!!

Our third visit to Noels and again, we really enjoyed it - super food and first rate service.

Ambience just right for a Saturday evening - bustling but not overly crowded.

Will definitely return again soon!

Was disappointed as only limited items on the Sunday menu, none of which I could eat. Waitress said they do have a different menu for the evening so will ask if they can do something else. They couldn’t, so we just had our drinks and left.

Very poor service. Asked for items that we never actually received but were still billed for at the end! Wouldn’t recommend to anyone wanting a romantic meal. Was extremely loud and our table was poor right in the middle
Of everything and by the till.
