Whilst exploring this quality shop we took lunch in their coffee shop. Welsh Rarebit with bacon - ooh so delicious. Welsh tea - ooh so refreshing. The surroundings were decorated on the theme of Alice in Wonderland and included the most beautiful flower displays. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here. What a lovely way to shop.

The staff were lovely. I haven't had a appetite lately, but I thoroughly enjoyed my meal of Lasagne with salad and garlic bread. Lovely freshly prepared food.

4 of us stopped here for breakfast and the food was appalling! Granted they were busy but that isn't an excuse. Firstly 4 x breakfasts took 30 minutes to arrive and when they did everything was cold and the poached eggs resembled marbles. The waitress was evidently embarrassed as she didn't charge us for our drinks.

An excellent lunch which was promptly served. I asked for a slight adjustment to the meal and this was not a problem to them. The staff are friendly and helpful and it is always very busy.

Don't come here very often but always a treat when I do :) takes a long time to get seated but that's because there so busy and people are so picky where they sit unlike me I'm happy to sit wherever :D Emma and Chelsea are great members of staff, always polite and smiling!

Something has gone dreadfully wrong at this once great cafe and they need to sort it out quickly. My husband and I have had many coffees and sandwiches here over the years but on the last occasion the staff seemed demoralised and weary and service was hit and miss. My husband's Welsh rarebit was burnt and they forgot the bacon... More

I visited Nicholls today, 29 December 2016, as it was recommended by a good friend. Sadly my experience was not good. We waited to be seated, I was excited because I thought this meant that food would be worth the wait. We were duly seated, we expected to order straight away before having read the menu, we asked for 5... More

Only the decor is nice. Waited for ages to be served. Ordered cake and hot chocolate which took ages again to receive and it tasted so poor. The lemon cake barely tasted of lemon and left a funny after taste. Hot chocolate needed a stronger chocolate flavour. Thought we really couldn't go wrong, clotted cream is always a winner, but...

Pleasant surroundings, good service and delicious food in the heart of the bustling market town of Abergavenny. Had the topside of beef lunch and the meal was delightful with flavoursome meat and gravy. Well priced and clearly well liked as it was literally one in and one out. Definitely worth a visit!
