If efficiency was all, then this place wins hands down, service is swift as a seagull on discarded fries. Thing is it's not! There is a canteen feel and many items seem pre-cooked especially for breakfast. The lunch menu is on A3 card and as such is unchanging and monotonous. All said though it's efficient and the food never bad

Have ate in Noble cafe alot of times and although the food is really good they always say the same thing at pay station, (sorry our card machine is down at the minute, there's a cash machine just opposite) just don't understand how it can be down all the time???

The food is tasty, the portions are fine. Staff very quick and the food made in a couple of min. Clean as well. For penne pasta with a steak which was absolutely delicious and gammon with pineapple in maple syrup with egg and chips plus vanilla shake and ice coffee we paid £22.50 so a bit pricy for a cafe...

I joined a queue that had 5 other tables to be seated ahead of me but despite this inside 3 mins of joining it my order had been taken and 4 mins later I was seated! I've eaten here many times before but not when it's been so busy and can only say the staff were brilliant!
