We were visiting Bolton and someone recommended trying Nick's. What a result. A lovely small restaurant with tables shoehorned in. Great atmosphere and wonderful steak.

We dined here last night on recommendation from colleagues . Having previously heard mixed views we decided to give Nicks a try. My initial impression of the restaurant was really good , a small place but the ambience and bistro atmosphere was really warm and busy, a good sign in any eatery . Our table wasn't ready so we were... More

Very good food and brilliant atmosphere. Very very pricey but worth every mouthful. Steak is delightful and staff are quite friendly. The stairs are quite hard after a few drinks but there nothing you can do about that ha!

Due to various family travel arrangements, we decided to book Nick's for our Christmas Day meal. This is not something we would normally do and did have some reservations. We certainly need not have worried. Every single course was amazing, generous portions, all cooked to perfection, with even the very youngest members of our family enjoying without complaint!! Staff were... More

I used to love this place but the food has declined on past visits. Lacks flavour and service is okay not great. I'm not saying it's a bad place to visit it's not. The place used to be amazing now it's just good

This is by far the best food in Bolton and surrounding area, the staff are very friendly and efficient, the menu is varied with a wide selection of specials but the really special element of Nicks is the food, it is simply marvellous. Locally sourced fresh ingredients cooked to perfection and served to look as appetising as they taste. Do... More
