Reviews of Nobles

Some reviews from press & online publications

“…glazed beef short rib, roasted sweet potato and pickled red cabbage, £16, was a seriously stunning plateful with melt-in-the-mouth meat, which would have satisfied even without the rich accompaniments. My fillet of hake, rumbledethumps, mussels, crispy kale, and dill cream, £16, was a more delicate affair – simple, tasty, understated and thankfully leaving me room for dessert: a delicious trio of house-made ice creams, £5. By the time I’d polished off the last mouthful, the bar was bustling so rather than head home, we joined the throng for a few drinks. That’s one thing that hasn’t changed about Nobles: once you’re there, it’s hard to leave.”
Ion Magazine

“…this pork belly with sesame glaze is declared to have just the right mix of crispness melting into softness and the fresh squid is cooked to perfection. A gingery apple slaw completes the happy picture and a proclamation is made: “It’s good. Very good.”

The Scotsman

“Leith is fast becoming my favourite place in the capital to eat and drink. Nobles is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy some quality food and drink, the staff were friendly and couldn’t do more to help. I would be over the moon if this was my local…”
The Herald

“This beautifully re-vamped Victorian bar is easily one of the best Leith has to offer, with a good selection of beers, which the lovely staff will often encourage you to sample, and the food a step up from your usual pub grub…”

The Skinny

“…the elegant evening mains menu, which features the likes of roast pheasant, Scottish crab claw and squash jalousie. The starters too are a cut above your average bite, with miso-glazed aubergine and confit rainbow trout taking centre stage…”

The List

“The berries were large and plump and juicy and soft with a slight tartness. The compote soaked into the thick slices of egg dipped brioche bread and the cream was light yet it brought the whole dish together. A thoroughly delicious lip smackingly good brunch!”
