First visit having heard good things about Nicks. seemed like some of the staff were new but apart from no drinks order being taken when we arrived the service was fine. The food was very good - excellent choices on specials board - more interesting than the menu ! Good portions - good choice of reasonably priced wines - no... More

What a shame, We were really looking forward to a great meal from a passionate chef, but it was shameful, The chips were burnt and soggy, the Dover sole burnt and the veg rock hard and the carrots mush. My wife did ask if Nick was in to-night and the waitress said he was. I couldn't believe it was the... More

Always enjoy going to Nicks. Good selection off the menu and always daily specials. Quite pricey but good quality and excellent service too. Nice cosy atmosphere, advised to book

We were also in the restaurant on the night of Friday 27th Feb, which I assume is the night that 58Juicy is referring to in her scathing review. We had a fantastic meal, as always, and the atmosphere at Nick's is always pleasant. Unfortunately a lady at a nearby table was unhappy with her meal but for some reason she... More

We've eaten there many times over the years and always enjoyed the food. We recently went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and sat upstairs, which is usually quite intimate. The starters were ok although portions small. I asked for a medium fillet but it was very well done and drier than gandy's flip flop. My husband had finished eating before... More

Comfortable surroundings in the bar area. We where shown to our table which was slightly unconventional as there was two other large groups dining. The staff where very friendly and polite. Very reasonably priced with a good selection on the menu. Portion sizes where huge and the quality of the food was excellent. The potatoes and vegetables accompanying the mains... More

We've heard good things about Nick's so tried to get in on numerous occasions, but being poor at planning, always leave it too late and could never get in. Managed to sort ourselves out and got on for a Thursday evening. We were very glad we did! Firstly, do not be put off by the location or the appearance on... More

I love Nicks, the food is always top notch. The service is very good. I really wish i could eat there every week. Nicks is a must for all your special occasions or if you want to impress the future in-laws. Remember to book early.
