Well done Lancaster!

Went here the other day with a friend for dinner and we had a great time! Everything was great: the environment, the service (the owner is relaxed, funny and very helpful), the food (tasted great and generous portion sizes). The food came quickly and is reasonably priced. I've been a student here... read more

Visited her with my daughter and we were really impressed. The venue itself is a little unusual - maybe could do with some art work on the walls but this didn't detract from the food and service. The waiter came over immediately with the menus and left us to look. My daughter is vegetarian but there were plenty of items... More

The best burgers in town and enough Jack Daniels ribs to sink a ship! Delicious! Super friendly staff and as a coeliac, the most accommodating place I've ever eaten! Adi gave us a wonderful welcome and Nathan the chef went the extra mile talking through the menu and offering to tailor dishes to be gluten free. I can't praise these... More

If you want a restaurant or even just a cup of tea in the afternoon, NICE is the place to go. Adi, Tom, the many Steph's and Nathan make the whole package complete. Highly rated for everyone.

Had a fantastic meal here. The service was excellent- friendly and attentive, with food being served quickly. The food itself was delicious, well presented and generous portions. The room has a lovely high ceiling, so it feels spacious and it's decorated in a light, modern way with a fun twist. Definitely worth a visit if you're looking for somewhere that... More

After reading other reviews we were pleased to be seated in the restaurant and not the bar area. This was a Friday evening with most tables occupied therefore there was a comfortable atmosphere.The food-king prawns for a starter, belly pork and a pizza were all excellent. The service was great and the waiter was so pleasant he made the evening... More

Decided to go for an early evening meal, and very glad we did. The restaurant was very quiet (Wednesday tea-time), but its a nice bright place and the waitress was very polite and attentive, as was the manager. We chose the Brown Rice and Chick-pea salad, and the Belly Pork. Both were extremely good, and we were very impressed. The... More

We have used this restaurant for the past two years when we are in town and it was always excellent (though it was always too brightly lit). The waiting staff do their best but now with a combination of having to eat in a draughty bar area similar to a pub and an extremely dumbed down menu, Nice is not... More

My husband and I have dined at NICE on numerous occasions since it first opened. The food has always been good quality and nicely presented. We have always looked forward to dining there... Usually for a celebration. It was a place to 'get dressed up' for. Unfortunately on our recent visit we were surprised to discover that you can now... More
