Visited here last night after a 12 month gap in visits. We used to regularly eat at Nice but became increasingly disappointed with the quality of food so stopped going. Decided to try it again after reading encouraging recent reviews however we will not be going again soon.. My husband chose the mushrooms Alfredo for his starter which was nice.... More

We went here to try the Tastecard out, and were really impressed with the standard of cooking. We had main meals from the special board, skate and lamb, both good quality. Puddings were amazing as well, try the sticky toffee pudding, yum!! The waiter was very helpful in deciding our choice, and very attentive throughout the meal. Th only criticism... More

Really good menu choice, and one of the best steaks we've ever eaten- just beautiful. I couldn't fit a pudding in so went for the Espresso Martini 'dessert cocktails', which was amazing!! The waiter recommended the cheesecake for my partner which was huge, and delicious. Fantistic waiting on staff- very friendly and passionate about the restaurant, and quick to make... More

There are two parts to NICE in the Storey Institute. Both offer fresh food at reasonable prices. The Restaurant offers formal dining, the Bar is like a cafe. The Bar is where lots of locals meet up for a coffee, and it has lots of coffee styles to choose from. They have fresh cakes and tray bakes, plus very good... More

We came in at ten to nine (they stop service at 9) looking for a light supper. The waiter couldn't have been more helpful suggesting meal deals and ideas. We settled on a pizza and seafood platter to share between 4 people all of which was delicious and just what we wanted,.

We went on Saturday night, and wondered if we would be two of a few diners, having looked at other reviews. in fact I think we had the last table. I was glad we booked. Having said that it was not noisy at all and we could talk very easily. In many restaurants the sound bounces off the walls. Our... More

The first time we visited this bar we were very happy, it was early evening while we waited for our train home (it's close to the train station). It was very quiet and peaceful and the food was good and reasonably priced. The best thing for me was the caramel macchiato and I had two (a milky coffee with a... More

Went on a Saturday night and it was very quiet. It is a shame, as i think this place would be more atmospheric with more people in there. Not much the restaurant can do about that though! We shared some bread and olives to start, had the pork tenderloin and the duck with limoncello with a bottle of wine, and... More
