We've eaten there many times over the years and always enjoyed the food. We recently went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and sat upstairs, which is usually quite intimate. The starters were ok although portions small. I asked for a medium fillet but it was very well done and drier than gandy's flip flop. My husband had finished eating before... More

Comfortable surroundings in the bar area. We where shown to our table which was slightly unconventional as there was two other large groups dining. The staff where very friendly and polite. Very reasonably priced with a good selection on the menu. Portion sizes where huge and the quality of the food was excellent. The potatoes and vegetables accompanying the mains... More

We've heard good things about Nick's so tried to get in on numerous occasions, but being poor at planning, always leave it too late and could never get in. Managed to sort ourselves out and got on for a Thursday evening. We were very glad we did! Firstly, do not be put off by the location or the appearance on... More

I love Nicks, the food is always top notch. The service is very good. I really wish i could eat there every week. Nicks is a must for all your special occasions or if you want to impress the future in-laws. Remember to book early.

Having read the mostly positive reviews on here, I decided to book this restaurant for some work colleagues and we were certainly not disappointed. From the great banter with the staff, to the delicious food, we had a very enjoyable night. The menu is extensive and the presentation told us that the chef certainly takes pride in his craft. I...

I visited the restaurant last Sunday evening with my wife and whilst the food was fine, unfortunately if you were not on first name terms with the service staff(one exception) you suffer.

My wife and I visit Nick's restaurant on Chorley Old Rd several times a year and each visit always a treat. The cooking is of a high standard and always beautifully presented. On occasion we have gone to other restaurants in the Bolton area that have been recommended by friends and we judge them against Nick's which, bar none, they... More
