We visited here on Thursday 29th Dec for my birthday meal.We were 15 min early but we're shown to our table immediately. The restaurant was full so had to wait a while for service but saying that the lovely waitress did acknowledge this ,we were given our drinks so just chatted while waiting to order.The food when it arrived was...

Visited Nicks with my partner yesterday evening after booking in last minute. On arrival we had been booked in half an hour later than what was agreed over the telephone however we were seated straight away and this wasn't a problem. The waiter seated us upstairs in the corner, it was quite difficult to get the chairs out as the... More

I visited with friends mid week just before Christmas the restaurant was really busy and we were seated upstairs. I think this was the issue. It was freezing, there was a huge draught coming through the window frame and down the wall. We had to swap seats after each course to warm up. The service lacked any finesse, glasses and... More

Went after recommendations from friends. Expected expensive nouveau cuisine but food was great and not nearly as expensive as I expected. Will definitely go again. Booking is essential and the staff were a little run of their feet. Service would have been 5* but the wait between courses was a little longer than I would have liked

The website had lead me to expect the sort of dishes where you get a stack of veg surrounded by a splash of sauce. That's not what I found. Superb food in plentiful supply with more than enough to satisfy the larger appetite. Quality and quantity was just right. This will be the local restaurant of choice going forward. We'll... More

As a family, for the past six years we've decided to take the stress out of Christmas Day preparation and eat out. This is the first time we've been to Nick's Restaurant, and booked it (well in advance) based on past reviews. It's a very unassuming place from the outside (you might actually walk past it) and the ground floor... More

Been to Nick's quite a few times in the past but this was the first time in 2 years. Menu reduced slightly and the place seemed brighter and less crammed. Very good food but quite pricey, 2 starters, 2 mains, bottle of fizz and 2 colas cost £94.00. Be back in the future when we have saved up again!

Thank Michael G
