“Wonderful lunch, shame they aren't open for dinner more evenings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

We will be back to The Nose! This was a lovely stop for lunch. My husband had the pie of the day, it was tasty and full of subtle flavour. I had the steak sandwich. The steak was perfect! Amazingly tender and completed well by the brie and caramelised onions. The kids also enjoyed their pizzas, the homemade crust was a big bonus on a kids menu. Great service and a comprehensive wine list made for a great experience.

“Fabulous meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

We had lunch here after go-karting and it was absolutely beautiful! A really nice menu to choose from and none of the meals disappointed - tasty!! Desserts were a little less overwhelming but for the price they charged for them you really couldn't be too disappointed

“Shame about the long wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

The food was lovely and definitely child friendly. However having to wait almost 2 hours for our meals wasn't good enough. Fortunately the children were served earlier, but then had finished their meals before the adults had even arrived and were getting somewhat impatient. The waiting staff were great, particularly the Irishman, whose name I've infortunately forgotten.

“Beautiful surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

Upon stopping here for a late lunch we were impressed with the large grassy outdoor area. The Nose is a lovely, new cafe with a simple yet tasty menu. Kid friendly with high chair and changing facilities. Grape vines full of grapes a nice view and then a short walk to see Highland Park. Large fires both indoors and out add to the atmosphere.
