Diner Reviews
  • "This is the 4th time I've been to Nobles and the food has never disappointed. The ambience was not good as there were only 4 people in the restaurant including us. The service was very good. I definitely recommend this restaurant and would go again."

  • "Great meal for two at the end of a week long holiday in Sussex. The mains were particularly yummy with gorgeous flavours and fresh tender meats! And a good selection of wines to go with! My boyfriend particularly enjoyed trying a red dessert wine with his chocolate pud! A great British restaurant!"
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "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!"

  • "the best eating place in battle well worth visting again."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 12/03/2014
  • "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."

  • "My husband booked a table for lunch to celebrate my birthday. The food was amazing, just right amount for lunchtime and not overpriced. Service was good, would definitely recommend it."
    dined on 04/03/2014
  • "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 shall definitely return to this pleasant local restaurant. The food was delicious, with interesting menu choices and all round good service."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "A restaurant where we were very well looked after. Food was spot on. The only gripe i had was that there werent quite enough vegetables compared to the amount of meat i got. 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"

  • "we enjoy our evening very relaxed, lovely staff, and good food."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "We come to eat at Nobles every couple months, as a treat, and because we know we are guaranteed a perfect evening, with no surprises. As ever we had a fantastic meal, with excellent, friendly service, great wine and a lovely atmosphere. Thank you Nobles! :)"
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "All I can say is what an amazing experience. Plenty of choice, fresh and well presented without the overpricing. 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."
    dined on 18/01/2014
  • "I don't like to be critical, but if I'm honest, the food was good but not outstanding, and I thought it was expensive for what was served, don't get me wrong, it was ok, and the service was great, its a nice place, but I booked it as there was a 'big sell' on the food / chef etc on the website, and it fell a bit short of my expectations, sorry to say this, I don't like being negative, but the website emailed me asking for a review, and so here it is!"
    dined on 04/01/2014
  • "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."

  • "This was our fifth visit to Nobles and we have never been disappointed. Beautifully cooked and presented food, with efficient and friendly service."

  • "Proved the perfect place for a special family birthday celebration"
    dined on 12/12/2013
  • "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."
    dined on 07/12/2013
  • "Our 3 course meal was very good. Smoked mackerel + chicken curry + sticky toffee / syllabub. Perhaps the curry was the most impressive element - not at all your typical curry. Bread and butter provided first of all - à la française."
    dined on 03/12/2013
  • "Lovely bright interior and wife sat next to radiator on a cold November Saturday. Food was good, service very good and reasonable value. If you want a good meal in Battle you will do an awful lot worse"
    dined on 23/11/2013
  • "Good food and wonderful, friendly and warm service. Had a feeling that nothing was too much trouble and we could just take our time."
    dined on 09/11/2013
  • "We ate at 7.30 but there were only two other people in the restaurant which made it lacking in atmosphere a little. The service was really good, friendly and helpful. Meal overall was expensive for what it was which was good but not outstanding. Would still try it again if in the area though."
    dined on 30/10/2013
  • "The menu was varied and interesting, particularly for fish lovers. Each course was beautifully presented with good attention to colour, texture and flavour. The only downside to me was the length of time it takes to be served each course. While I appreciate that the food is freshly prepared for each diner, I do think that 1hr 45 mins for two courses is excessive. My daughter and husband would agree with me here, we were all so hungry by the time our starter appeared that unfortunately we could not appreciate the dishes served and then there was the long wait for main courses which, again, rather spoiled our appreciation. The dining room had four tables in use, I hate to think what the waiting time is when they are busy! Great food, but.."
    dined on 25/10/2013
  • "Excellent restaurant - great surprise as the only person who actually lives in Battle had only heard bad reports about it. She will now certainly recommend it to other local people"
    dined on 16/10/2013
  • "Great evening, the best steak I've had in a long time and the vegetarian choice for my other half was spot on. Will be back."
    dined on 02/10/2013
  • "excellent food. catered very well for dietary requirements. everyone in our party said it was the best meal they had eaten in ages. we loved it. friendly helpful staff and beautiful food"
    dined on 21/09/2013
  • "We came to Nobles Restaurant for our wedding anniversary. The food was like nothing we had ever tasted before, it was so exquisite we never wanted the meal to end. The staff were extremly friendly and the ambience of the place was wonderful. Cannot rate this high enough and look forward to going back again!"
    dined on 03/08/2013
  • "Pure food with a twist. A place where we felt very welcome. It's great to be able to book via internet from abroad."
    dined on 02/08/2013
  • "We took friends for Friday Dinner and it was a very enjoyable meal with excellent service. They had never been to Nobles and found it very much to their taste."
    dined on 05/07/2013
  • "The meal was okay. I ordered the steak but it wasn't very good. The desserts were very nice, especially the cheesecake. I would go back purely for the desserts."
    dined on 21/06/2013
  • "We'd not been to Nobles for a while and if this had been our first experience it would have been our last! Whilst the food was nice it took 2 hours for our mains to arrive, and it was not a busy Saturday evening with only a few tables in - all of which experienced the same timings. An hour in our starters arrived along with the comment that they were a chef down, on a Saturday night. So, not the usual Nobles experience but we'll wait a while before going back."
    dined on 15/06/2013
  • "Had a very good meal at Nobles on Friday night with some friends. Food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Wine list good as well."
    dined on 07/06/2013
  • "We had a lovely meal well balanced , beautiful Lamb. We received very attentive service. If I have one slight criticism the decor was minimalist and lacked personality somewhat , but we would return."
    dined on 31/05/2013
  • "Relaxed atmosphere and good food made fun evening with our friends"
    dined on 25/05/2013
  • "The food was very good but at some £55 per couple for a light lunch, it was simply too expensive, which perhaps explains the lack of diners. We only saw 2 other people while we were eating, on a busy Saturday in Battle. I commented to the waitress that to serve a small risotto starter without even a bread roll was strange - 2 slices of bread + butter was charged at a further £2. Just back from France, where to serve a meal without bread would be tantamount to sacrilege. Finally, 10% was added automatically to the bill."
    dined on 18/05/2013
  • "I booked a table through the website, easy to navigate and a reply within an hour with confirmation. Table booked for lunch, menu is fantastic, wine selection very good, and the presentation excellent. We were made to feel very welcome no hint of a rush, yet were attentive when needed, the food was lovely. We have been before, and will certainly be returning."
    dined on 30/04/2013
  • "A good addition to battle I think where there are limited choices to eat ! It's a shame its so empty ! The restaurant deserves to be supported by the locals !"
    dined on 19/04/2013
  • "We were a group of 4 including 1 veggie. The starters were all delicious - souffle, duck salad (a bit small) and chicken liver parfait. The steaks were excellent and the veggie tart was too. It's great to have more than one vegetarian option to choose from. Deserts -OK. I would definitely go again, probably not on a Saturday as there is a fixed price menu other days which would keep the cost down. We spent around £40 per person but only 2 out of 4 were drinking so would have been more if we'd had wine. Menu seems to change regularly to make use of local/seasonal produce - another plus in my opinion."
    dined on 06/04/2013
  • "Nobles is always excellent with great fresh food and lovely service....the catering service is also excellent....I can highly recommend their canapes in particular!"
