For such a small community Nicks is a really nice restaurant. They have a broad menu and we enjoyed the food experience.

This is a very busy restaurant. I had excellent lamb chops and had a taste of the very good smoked salmon. There was a little confusion about one of the starters. My dining companions were not as enthusiatic about the food or service.
