My cousin and I ate here on Saturday 25th September. We were made to feel very welcome. The choice of food was good. The portion sizes were quite large. The food was delicious, nicely presented and on hot plates. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. My only criticism is that we were seated upstairs and there was, in my... More

After seeing all of the positive reviews I expected much better experience. Went with a small group for a special birthday celebration and first of all they got our table and number of diners wrong. We waited while tables were rearranged which was not a huge problem but not a good start to the evening. The food was just ok... More

From the outside & location Nick's restaurant doesn't look like the place for fine dining, however the opposite is true. I had chicken livers for my starter which was gorgeous & my partner had scallops & was very impressed. We both had a pepper crusted fillet steak in a lovely sauce which melted in our mouths, probably the best fillet... More

Nice little place. Not posh and not tatty. Just nice . Food was nice. Is only small but quite romantic. It's hard to find as it is hidden between shops and you wouldn't expect it to be there.. Nice place overall. Would go again for the food but wouldn't prob go for any celebratory events as it very small place... More

Ate here recently on my birthday after hearing good things for many years. Very small eating area which was pefectly fine. Very dark and dingy. The service was great. The food was fairly standard and a little overpriced.

I have heard others praise this restaurant so it was about time I paid a visit. Not in a great setting. The building is a bit awkward and cramped. The food however was excellent. I had heard the portion sizes were generous. I had fillet stroganoff. It was delicious. Excellent meat and well constructed sauce. Nice atmosphere and busy. The... More

Partner suggested Nicks having heard and read excellent reports. They are all spot on, this is a small (compact and bijou) restaurant that has an unassuming exterior, and pleasant interior. It is cozy but pleasant, fortunately we had requested a corner table as some tables we would have refused. Good range of food all of excellent quality. Sole Goujons starter... More

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...
