Stumbled upon this wonderful cafe today. My Vegetarian breakfast ticked all my boxes, nosh's own rosti, mushroom, avocado, tomato, poached eggs, relish and dark sour dough. The service was very amazing. They specially made an omelette for my elderly father. They have a massive menu covering all day breakfast and full lunch menu, licensed as well. Nice to wander around... More

We are regulars because of staff and consistency of food and coffee. The garden is great and a peaceful spot on a nice day.

Five of us were met and greeted and although very busy a table was found. The menu although not vast was interesting and varied and not expensive. Our waitress from Gore was extremely helpful and friendly. Our food was served promptly and was more than adequate and delicious. I can personally recommend the ploughman's platter which would have almost fed... More

Stopped today for a cup of coffee. Took 5 minutes to order because there were two couples in front of us and then the cashier had to "do something else" before taking our order. Waited over 25 minutes for 2 Americano to be served, and that was after going back and asking how much longer. It seemed that drinks were... More

We frequently visit Nosh for the great food. Plenty of menu and cabinet options. Suitable for kids too. Indoor and outdoor dining options in a lovely setting. Extra points from me for a great supply of gluten free options.

Very good- had a savory muffin with a delicious broccoli salad and my husband had the lamb sandwich (kebab) that he really liked. Would definitely recommend it. We are outside in the gardens which were sunny and beautiful though a bit windy.
