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! Great food and good coffee, would... More

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!

My wife and I called into Nicholls for lunch today and ordered the festive dinner with all the trimmings which was delicious and very good value for money. The restaurant has had a makeover since I was last there and looks great. As usual the service was excellent.

Pleasant mid week lunch, friendly staff & fresh food. Clean environment & facilities. Plenty of choice on the menu. We just had jackets and sandwiches which were nice. Cakes looked delicious!

Mum n I come here after a day shopping in town. Lovely decor would like to do the house the same :-) the tea and cake plater is the best! It's always really busy here, so if you see a table grab it. The soup is really good too. The staff seem really friendly and helpful. Strawberry cake was a... More
