“Our Favourite Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Again we have visited Nicks at Chequerbent for my Husbands Birthday 19th September, it was superb as always. I can not understand what people find to complain about. We have been to the Chorley Road one for years, the Chequerbent is nearer to us and nice to be open lunch time and at £12.95 for two courses (well cooked, beautifully served,) it is worth every penny.
If you have a problem ask for and tell the manager if she can she will put it right do not say everything is okay then moan later. We have had no problems in all the years we have gone there and yes it can be hot but you can not please everyone some people complain is cold what can a place do. You will always have someone compaining.
Most of the reviews are good go by that I assure you , you will not be disappointed. A pub meal it is not a restaurant it certainly is the best in Bolton.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I have been to Nick's a few times over the years and you have to book in advance to get a table. Went with a party of 4 recently and all were all impressed.The standard of food has been consistently excellent. I particularly enjoyed the mixed fish grill, each potion cooked to perfection.The wine selection was good and some reasonably priced wines of good quality. The service is friendly and professional. All in all an enjoyable evening.

“Fantastic as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Ive been over 10 times over the last year

Ive always has a great meal, the only small negaitve is the crammed downstairs dining room at the bolton venue

Other than that this place is a GEM, and worth the extra spend considering the local ingredients and quality of food

“Superb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Me & my husband have been to this restaurant ( Chequerbent ) a couple of times & found it very satisfying, The menu is quite extensive & specials are definatley worth a try!
The staff are very pleasant & attentive making it a good all round dining experience.
Book early to get in & its a good idea to get a taxi as parking spaces are limited.

“Nice Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Visited the restaurant last Friday evening with some friends for a meal to celebrate my birthday. Even though this is a very small restaurant which was quite full, the food and service were excellent as was the atmosphere. Would return/recommend.
