About Public House by Nico
Located on Great Western Road, Public House by Nico boasts a menu of small plates inspired by your favourite pub classics.
From rare breed steaks, market fresh fish and chips and juicy burgers smothered in Scottish cheese, to their deep-filled pies and slap-up roasts, it's all about the comfort food at this West End spot. The interiors too offer a take on the classic pub aesthetic with exposed wooden beams, open fireplaces and cosy leather furniture perfect for snuggling up with a real ale from the bar, a glass of fruity wine or a tumbler of single malt scotch for an evening. Or if you're more of a morning person, weekends at Public House are ready to treat early risers to some hearty brunch dishes and great coffee.
Food was absolutely gorgeous and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Had a fantastic afternoon here luckily getting to try and enjoy most of the dishes on the menu!
Only slight let down was the cauliflower cheese - very small portion for 2 people, didn't seem to have been baked/grilled to get that nice cheesy crust on top. Cauliflower itself could have been cooked slightly longer, my boyfriend says this was the only thing we had that I could make better.
Food was great, ham starter was amazing and best sticky toffee pudding I’ve ever had!!!!! Service was great, server was so nice and accommodating, will be back and recommend 100%
3 out of 4 of our main meals were OK - roast beef (although some advice may have been offered on just how rare it would be - raw). However my husbands choice of the salt baked? celariac was very disappointing. We actually thought the kitchen had forgotten to put the celariac on until he spotted 2 small wedges (smaller than the roast potatoes) on his plate. After complaining, a further 2 small pieces were brought, along with a pile of veg - not required but evidently to make up for the laughable portion, which was supposed to be the main component of the meal. This is just the sort of thing that gets vegitarian food a bad name - just a plate of veg. He isn't even vegetarian, just that the meal sounded so appealing. Also, not even a hint of the truffle oil that was supposed to be there. The waiting staff were good however and the situation handled well by the manager who took the meal off the bill. It was disappointing though and probably not worth a return visit.
Another great dining experience from Nico. The food and drink was perfect, and beautiful decor. The staff were friendly and extremely attentive - but almost too much so - I think this was because there wasn't just one member of staff allocated to our table, so it felt like everyone was asking us the same questions all the time ! That certainly wouldn't deter me coming back for more.
From start to finish, a real treat of a Sunday lunch, friendly staff, quick service and above all, amazing flavours from top quality ingredients.
Pleased with the quality of the food and wine, plus service is good. I think this model works best for a couple or group who are willing to share plates as food choices come out over multiple points during a meal
Never disappointed with food or service .
Fabulous. Dal. We particularly enjoyed the sea bass and the ham Hugh sandwich. Absolutely loved the rhubarb shortbread. Inspired 😋
Great food and lovely attentive staff!
Absolutely fantastic!! Staff were lovely and extremely knowledgeable of everything on the menu. The food was delicious. A definite 10/10. Can’t wait to go back!
The menu was limited Food a tad stodgy.. pork crackling too tough Ricotta cheese starter good but with basically 2 large prawn crackers! Sour dough bread starter not fresh and a bit hard Sea bass too salty Six by Nico way better food wise. Ambience good at this place though
Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed
Birthday celebration, not disappointed
Thank you for such a lovely meal, great environment and fab staff team who topped off a lovely relaxing afternoon. We'll be back Anne
I had booked a table for two for lunch and when we arrived we were shown to a table towards the back of the restaurant, next to the kitchen despite there being vacant tables in the much brighter main area. However, after asking to be seated in the brighter main area we were quickly relocated. The food was outstanding, really delicious. We’ll definitely be back!
Lovely food and great atmosphere
We are big fans of Public House by Nico and we have visited many times since it opened. We went for Sunday lunch yesterday and it was absolutely amazing. Beautifully presented and SO DELICIOUS....the white chocolate arrancini that came with the rice pudding was a thing of beauty! The front of house staff were amazing. I would highly recommend anyone to visit!
Lovely place tasty food would return
Fantastic food & lovely chilled atmosphere. I’ve been to Six by Nico and 111 by Nico and Public House was equally as good! We’ll definitely be booking again - keen to try the brunch and Sunday lunch!
Seriously lacking in atmosphere, food ok but not on a par with other nico venues , service not great
Brilliant food and service.
Good food and great service.
