After visiting Nicks 'other' restaurant at Chequerbent roundabout, which is now closed down, we'd heard this was a great place to go for special food. So we booked it for our dad's 60th birthday treat, taking the family and some friends along too (11 in total). Don't let the location or exterior put you off, it's just unassuming; once you... More

I went to Nicks (again!!) with a friend who was going for the first time. The drinks and bread came and we were left to peruse the menu. I chose the peaches with stilton and crispy (crispy on request) parma ham and my friend had the Lancashire smoked salmon, prawns, dressed leaves and Marie Rose sauce. Both were delicious with...

My wife and I had dinner with friends on a Saturday night with an 8:15 PM booking and the place was buzzing, actually a little bit noisy but only the babble of conversation from people enjoying themselves. The menu was quite extensive with "international cuisine" probably being the best descriptor. The quality of the food was outstanding, my starter being... More

This is a good place to go for dinner with the family. Although the restaurant is small, it has an extensive menu. The food is of excellent quality, and I would recommend Nick's.

Only the second time I've been here but again, great! Good wine and fantastic service. I had lobster to start, very yummy and we all dad lamb chops for main. We all ordered the lamp pink and all found (a little disappointingly) they were a tad over done, not over done just not a pink as we like. Having said... More

I have visited this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The service is great and the food is excellent always fresh and beautifully prepared. Be warned though book in advance as the restaurant is small and demand for tables high

Id not been upto Bolton for some years, but was looking forward to my dinner for most of the 300 mile drive. And Nick didnt disappoint. The specials board is a foodies delight, I struggled to actually pick something as they all looked amazing and had to choose two mains in the end as I couldnt split it - one... More
