This was out first visit to 'Nicks Restaurant' on Chorley Old Road and had come highly recommended by friends. The Restaurant is small and we had to be accomodated downstairs due to one of our party being disabled (no toilet downstairs for disabled people please note this)! The restaurant is not appropriate for disabled people who can not climb stairs and this should be made know on the website by the owner, as this person sat all night with a glass of water not wanting to drink too much because of obvious reason no toilet downstairs.
The Restaurant was busy and there is not enough room to move around without knocking the chair next to you or at the back of you! The starters were fine after a small hicup of getting two of them wrong and we had to wait a while until it was resolved, they did have plenty of flavour and were big portions. Main course which two of our party had was chicken kiev - again a large piece of chicken on a small bed of rice. After cutting in to the chicken it was bland/dry and lacked any season along with no garlic, this was brought to the attention of a female member of staff who took the meal away, at no time during the meal was we approached with an apology or an alternative. The service was slow and we have to say the restaurant did lack any atmosphere.
We declined on a dessert due to the experience and excessive wait. The bill was given to us with an overdue apology, we did make our views know to the staff regarding the food and this was not acknowledged in any way by the member of staff. Also short changed us when we received our change after paying the bill, a small amount. We would not recommend this esablishment or visit it again under any circumstances.
Would suggest the owner make it clear that there are no w.c. downstairs and disabled people are going to struggle as this was never made clear to us at any stage of our booking over the telephone and there is nothing on the website to state this. This was a very poor experience and as it was a birthday meal for one of our party it was appalling to say the least. Got the distinct impression it was get people in and out as quickly as possible!!!!!!
