Loved the bar. The restaurant had a 45 minute wait and then they were out of almost everything we chose to order.

We were the 2nd table for lunch, and it still took 45 minutes for our food to arrive, god knows how long the 5 or 6 parties who came in after us waited. Food was just OK, and not as good as other Nicholsons I've been to (Manchester is FAR better). Not very good ambiance or setting upstairs, you'd do... More

I have never eaten here but have had a few Guinness and have never been disappointed. The staff are super friendly, the building is quaint and cosy with a great atmosphere. I wish there were more bars like this around

Very disappointing meal with friends. Couple of friends wanted fish - there were a few fish dishes on the menu - waitress said there was no fish available!

Wonderful atmospheric setting with period gas lighting and cosy snugs. Get there by 12 to grab one of the snugs and order your fish finger sandwiches and a pint of Guinness!

It was like stepping back into the 19th Century! Little booths in which to sit and loads of things to look at. Worth a visit

Called in with friends. Drank a couple of pints of Belfast Ale whilst chatting to two chaps who had travelled up from Dublin to celebrate a friend's birthday. Great guys in a truly unique pub. Bags of atmosphere and character. Will return.
