Nicks is a small restaurant in an unlikely location in Bolton. Looks can be deceptive! Nicks won't win any awards for decor but this is part of its charm. Grilled peaches with Stilton and Parma ham to start, duck with scallops followed by homemade black currant pie. All homemade, locally sourced produce, Nick the chef chats to guests afterwards and...

Invited for dinner by friends. Friendly staff. Good choice of menu. Very good food. Generous portions. Gluten free diet available without any problem. We were told Nick himself has to have GF food. Very good first experience. Will go again.

met with friends for a fabulous Friday night dinner. The restaurant was full. Now this place is very small so naturally they need to cram in as many people as possible. Some would say it was cozy some would say it was crowded. Tables are very close together which adds or detracts from the atmosphere depending on your point of... More

Food and service superb. Nick even made one of our friends something of the menu as a special request, despite the restaurant being full. This is a hidden gem that will become a regular haunt. Wish we'd known about it before now!!

Each time ordered off the specials board and the last time ordering Scallops with asparagus and the scotch peppered fillet for main. Absolutely amazing food and service and for such high quality food was actually very reasonably priced. Good friends good food and good... More

Not been for a while, but glad to say that both the quality and service are better than ever. We noticed there was also a Market Menu before 7pm which looked excellent value... However you cant go to Nicks and not eat off the specials board.. so we did. Okay food is not the cheapest but you don't come here... More

We ate off the market menu , which is very good value for the money. They had a separate vegetarian menu with 5 options too. The service couldn't be faulted, and the staff were very efficient despite being rushed off their feet.

This is the BEST restaurant in the Bolton area by a country mile. I am utterly perplexed whilst it is no 12 on Tripadvisor. I have just moved back to Bolton from Whitefield were the food offerings there are like Manchester United versus Accrington Stanley! Bolton's restaurant offering is poor. That is, with the exception of Nicks. My girlfriend and... More
