We decided to try this restaurant after it was highly recommened. We liked the look of the place, nice atmosphere and our waitresses were very nice. Our starters were delicious so we were looking forward to our mains. Hubby ordered Tornados Rossini and I had fillet stroganof, now these were very disappointing. My stroganof was probably one of the worst... More

I attended Nick's with friends for a birthday celebration and it was well worth a visit. We went early as we wanted to take advantage of their Market menu offer and even though it was an offer menu we were impressed. There was a choice of 5 different starters, mains and desserts. This doesn't sound many but we struggled to... More

Been several times, both with my husband and with friends. Great food and excellent service. Prefer the cosy atmosphere of the Chorley Old Road restaurant when going with my husband but like the Chequerbent restaurant when going with friends. In my opinion this is the best restaurant in Bolton.

I ordered steak which wasnt cooked how I ask for. the steak was on its own on a plate so we waited 5-10 minutes for the accompanied side food. Waitress plonked a dish of veg... More

We went on Valentines night and again I was not disappointed. The staff as ever were friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble at this restaurant. For those who like their sauce on the side, you only have to ask. The starters all sounded delicious and making a choice was hard but we managed it. My king prawns were... More
