Hidden gem. Food is Michelin class. Really diverse menu to suit all tastes. Service was fantastic, very friendly and attentive staff. House wine lovely. Would definitely recommend this to all.

Visited Nosh yesterday with a friend and was not disappointed! Had a beautiful daily special with chicken and considering the price and the quality of the food, it was incredible! Followed up by a rich coffee and gorgeous sticky toffee pudding, it was a joy....And I’ll definitely be back! Service was every bit as good as the food. Top Nosh!More

I went here for breakfast only to find that you can’t swap anything in the breakfast. I don’t eat bacon and have never had any trouble swapping it for something else anywhere else. When I mentioned this to the girl serving us she responded with...“that’s just the way he has it”. I won’t be eating here again.More

Came here yesterday with my friend for lunch, and have been here numerous times and enjoyed it. This time however I felt I really had to leave a review for health and safety terms. I ordered a tikka chicken panini and my friend ordered a...wrap,these came with crisps and a side salad. I ate my panini first but my friend had started eating some of her salad. When I went to touch my salad I noticed there was a brown lump in it. I got my fork and moved it and that’s when I realised it was a clump of mud, and also there was wet mud on the salad. My friend checked hers and her lettuce leaves had mud on them, and she had eating a few of them without realising. Obviously we didn’t have to pay for this so that’s why I considered not leaving a negative review as the staff were very apologetic and dealt with the situation well. But it’s really not acceptable for food to be served with mud. I won’t be returning after this experience and if you do go double check your salad 🥗More

Hi Shannon, I have only just become aware of your dreadful experience in Nosh and want to apologise profusely to you and your friend for the obvious trauma. Can I just explain that when all our fresh salad comes in, it is first steeped and...More

2nd visit to Nosh the last visit was a positive one with lovely surrounding and back garden. The food was lovely except for slow service. Gave it a second visit this morning and expecting a faster service as we were the first ones in. Sadly...service very slow and when food arrived the order was wrong and then they said they will be back with correct order in a moment. Waited only to find out they had forgotten about rectifying their earlier mistake. I have to say lovely surroundings and lovely food and it's an awful shame prices and service is poor.More

We had a lovely lunch in Nosh over the weekend - smoked salmon and a breakfast roll followed by the Oreo cheesecake which was amazing! Everything was great and the staff were very friendly. I will definitely go back.

Hi I visited here for lunch on Thursday and was very disappointed have been here before and have found that it has lost its appeal. To be honest the quality of the food is poor cheap frozen chips the chicken had a strange texture almost...like processes . Too many waitress only one doing anything . But on saying all this it was full and very noisy. It's a pity as it had an appeal and always had something different on the menu no longer the case.More
