Visited Feb 13th, 2018. Food was delicious, difficult to fault. Drinks were great too but expensive, I have seen a certain bottle of prosecco a great deal cheaper in other places in town. Staff seemed indifferent towards us. No attempt at conversation was made, the...More

I really hate to write rough reviews. Nimmo's was nothing special. The waitress was inattentive and never smiled and the food was uninspired.

My wife and I had dinner here recently. I will only say how disappointed we were, very mediocre food very obviously not an ounce of care or passion. The waitress smiled once when she handed me the card machine which asked for a gratuity. It...More
