Firstly it's fair to say the visit was on mothering Sunday, so was expectedly busy. First issue was we were not acknowledged for 10 minutes on arrival so were left stood in the doorway (including two 80+ year olds), then sat waiting for a table for another 20 minutes, so for a 3pm meal the orders were not taken until...

This is the second family meet up we have arranged here. Great location for walking down to Rutland water and taking a boat trip in the summer. Food has a good choice for all the family from kids to grandparents to gluten free and fussy.

After a walk around Rutland Water we decided to stop here for their "Lunch for Less" offering. Good choice of items on the menu and very good value. Excellent food with some local ales and good wine list.

For a formal looking place it was lovely to settle into armchairs and have our dogs welcomed. A busy service was explained would delay our food which was fine as we had plenty of time. Food ranging from omelettes to burgers via fish and chips were well presented and tasty- a few more chips were the only comment. Staff were... More

I was looking for a restaurant where all my family could get together and celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. The Noel proved to be an excellent choice. The atmosphere was lovely, it was like having dinner at home, cooked by an excellent chef. The menu was a considered size, with a wide choice to suit the most difficult of party... More

we were looking for some where to eat and this gem came up on the sat nav. A bit early so had to wait for the kitchen to open so had a couple of cask ales to start. The menu was a bit short on choice but sounded delicious so opted for tiger prawns and chicken Caesar mains. Just mouth... More

We had a reservation for 7. When we arrived the car park was empty which was slightly worrying. Once in we were greeted by a lovely and helpful bloke. He offered us a drink or asked if we wanted to go straight to the table. We were given a complimentary pot of soup and some bread. Very nice touch! We... More

We arranged to meet friends for a lunchtime meal at the Noel in October 2016. We got there at around 12:25 and there was only one other car in the car park - which worried us slightly ! However the car belonged to our friends and we went in - ordered drinks and then others started to arrive. The drinks... More

I decided to take my 2 boys camping at Rutland but wanted to treat them to a meal out instead of cooking on site. I looked at the reviews and decided to try The Noel. I had been there before and really enjoyed it. We ordered our meal from the very friendly staff but had to wait a long time... More
