Great atmosphere for a small restaurant. The food was excellent. I just had two starters the goats cheese bruschetta and the seafood chowder. Excellent flavour! My husband had mussels then the steak. He said it was fantastic. We didn't have a dessert and had two alcoholic drinks £57 reasonable for good quality. Will def go again. Only criticism - late... More

Always visit Nick's on special occasions and never disappointed. Food top notch. Took my mum recently (who is a good cook herself and not easily pleased) and she was so impressed she's already revisited and due to go again in February. Nick always comes out himself to chat and check everything is ok. The restaurant can get noisy and it... More

Been here several times and always rated Nicks very highly. On this Saturday night it was full to capacity much busier than on our previous visits. Food was very good as always, but being so busy it was extremely noisy and very cramped. I found it quite claustrophobic and certainly not conducive to a pleasant relaxed meal. Think the kitchen...

First time at Nick's. I must say the food was excellent. I had chicken livers to start and Liz had the chowder both was excellent. Mains roast beef and all the trimmings and duck breast with apple puree both excellent. Cream brulee excellent. We shall be going back very soon.

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
