Called in around 7.00pm on Saturday after the rugby. Lively bar with buzzy atmosphere, good staff. Didn't have food but it smelled and looked excellent.

This was my second visit to Nobles and both times were for breakfast. I had the Nobles full breakfast, good portion size that lasted me through to dinner and was well cooked 👍🏻my aunt and cousin had the Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine. They said it was v. Good and portions were a good size. The restaurant has a bit... More

This place really is fantastic great food and drink choice and a lovely atmosphere any day of the week. My favourite being Sunday brunch and with kid's and dogs welcome there really is no reason not to check this place out.

I was in for dinner with two friends a couple of weeks ago and, even though it was just a Monday night, the menu was as wonderful as ever (note: I eat in Nobles quite a lot). In terms of food, Nobles is a step up from the usual pub grub most Leith places have on offer (and that's saying... More

The place looks lovely, service is excellent, nice beers, so it is the perfect place to chill out with friends, and get some reasonable food to go with it. The quality of the food and cooking could be better though - so we got overcooked hamburger (pity, as the taste of the meat was good!), and the batter on the... More

Our recent dinner at Nobles was as always absolutely delicious. Great ingredients, an interesting menu and brilliant service. The quality of the food is really great and not expensive either! Staff were lovely and attentive and the place is really cosy and atmospheric.

There are several good things about this pub: the beautiful room, the charming service, the generous portions, the reasonable prices, the good beers. However, perhaps I had too high expectations of the food, which overall was in fact just average. The best dish was a cullen skink, which rightly spoke more of fish than of cream and potatoes. Also good... More

Leith has an abundance of eateries. However, giving Nobles another shot, we ate lunch today. Fish and Chips - £12 Eggs Nobles - £8 My Eggs Nobles had as much taste and textures as a flat tyre. I was not given the Stornoway Black Pudding - as advertised. Maybe my face didn't fit? My poached eggs died a vinegar death..... More

We stopped by early Saturday night as we were hungry and my girlfriend said these were the best fish and chips in Edinburgh. I've heard this before about other fish n' chip shops so was a bit sceptical. The staff were really friendly and helpful and we ordered fish and chips off the menu. We were very hungry and when...
