Things may be a little different for a while, so please bear with us. To help create a safe environment for everyone, we’re enhancing our high standards of hygiene even further. There will also be some changes to our normal style of service ensuring everyone is safe but you can rest assured that everyone will still get a special Novelli welcome and service.

Operating times

We’ve temporarily reduced our opening hours – please see opening times.


We are serving a reduced menu for a while, which can be viewed via our website or QR Code in the restaurant or disposable menu can be given.

Clean and Safe

We’ve deep cleaned Novelli’s and increased the frequency of our cleaning routines. Every table is cleaned thoroughly at the end of every guest visit. Our serving staff are wearing additional PPE face covering to support the 1 metre service requirement.

Social Distancing

We have introduced new measures to ensure that we meet Government advice on safe distancing. We ask all our guests to be respectful of this policy when they visit us.

Restaurant Philosophy

Novelli at City Quays is a stylish Mediterranean and French influenced brasserie open all day offering lunch and afternoon tea through to dinner, a great place for after work cocktails and tapas at our bar.  Why not enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace when the sun is shining.

Bon appetite!
