Meanwhile, 10-year-old Sonny opted for a more colourful ensemble as he turned out in a red and black bomber jacket, a dark t-shirt, blue denim jeans and two-tone trainers.
As he left the Duke of York, Noel stopped by a number of his fans to sign autographs on a selection of albums and books.
Noel and his son’s outing comes after the musician compared his fans going ‘apes**t’ for his Oasis tracks to a ‘drop-off’ response with his new songs as he made a comeback to music last month.
The musician, who led the iconic group from 1991 until 2009, admitted he believes the difference in reaction between his classic hits and more recent material is ‘character-building’ as he discussed his career in this week’s GQ HYPE.

Rock star Noel unveiled a new single called We’re On Our Way Now with his band High Flying Bird and is set to release his greatest hits album Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021) on June 11 – in celebration of their 10-year anniversary.
On spending the last decade maintaining his career after his bitter split from Oasis, Noel – who is estranged from his brother and founder Liam – said: ‘It’s really character building when you play a song from Oasis, which everyone knows and the place goes f****ng apes**t.
‘And then you play your new stuff and there’s clearly a f**king drop-off in people digging it.
‘And in between those songs, people are constantly shouting out for stuff that you wrote 20 years ago. But you either sink or swim and you have to actually look these people in the eye and say, ”F**k them”.
‘When you’re writing for a band that’s become a brand and a huge f****ng business – and this is only with hindsight, as I didn’t realise this at the time – you’re kind of writing with the weight of the brand hanging over you.
‘The songs have to sound a certain way to sell 70 million records and you’re not going to just throw it all up in the air on a whim.
‘A lot of the early High Flying Birds songs were actually written for Oasis, but as I’m not a brand, and as High Flying Birds is not a brand, I could do whatever I wanted.’
Fans: Noel took the time as he left the theatre at the weekend to stop for a group of fans and sign autographs for them
