Noble, Holywood, Co Down

Our Casual Dining award aims to highlight the quality of (mainly) smaller establishments - ambitious restaurants with an informal style, and especially those serving outstanding daytime food.

A genuinely warm welcome, terrific seasonal cooking and superb service are the reasons for the success of this quietly stylish first floor restaurant in the heart of Holywood.

Space is at a premium in the L-shaped room but, once tucked comfortably in at your table, everything feels just right - and, from a corner window, you might even glimpse ships heading up the lough to dock in Belfast.

The first solo venture for business partners Pearson Morris (Chef, formerly of Eipic at Deanes) and Saul McConnell (Manager, formerly of Deanes) there's an air of quiet customer-focused confidence to every aspect of Noble and it's no wonder that it has become one of the hottest meal tickets in Northern Ireland.

Well worth a detour.
