The food here is to die for. Absolutely amazing chef who produces the most tender of meats. Although the menu is slightly pricey it's great to have somewhere quaint like this is Bolton where there aren't too many other diners, the staff are interested in your custom and the owner obviously takes pride in the service his team provide.. as...

I visited Nicks with my parents to celebrate my birthday and Father's Day! It had been recommended by friends so I thought I'd give it a try. The service was excellent and the food was amazing! We had a fish and shell fish platter and it was so tasty and fresh. There was an extensive specials board and the house... More

All had different dishes all of very good standard - little pricey but well cooked and presented. staff friendly, will definitely return. We have tried both the chorally old rd and the larger one both lovely but Chorley Old rd preferred. Excellent steaks at both!

As two members of our family have the same birthday, we decided to celebrate by going somewhere special - and Nicks is very special. We went for the early dining menu and even though it was early evening, the place was full and buzzing. The staff were very pleasant and attentive even though they were kept busy. The food was...

Recently visited for my husbands birthday . Staff were really attentive, friendly and were seen to be continually working throughout the evening. The food for my husband and friends was excellent however I have to say that as a vegetarian ( I eat fish) the food and presentation for me at Nicks is always "just ok".

Nicks never fails to impress! Cosy, sophisticated and unpretentious. Good food, fantastic service. Not one wrong word about it.
