Always such a relaxed atmosphere every time I visit and staff are always so attentive and pleasant. I recommend Niche to everyone! Food, surroundings, staff and atmosphere are always 10/10
Highly recommend the Niche.Food is terrific and reasonably priced.Staff are really nice and welcoming.
Food was good whoever the sesame cauliflower was underdone. It still had the lovely flavour was just slightly raw. I know some people like it this way but on other visits it was soft and lovely. Only a slight criticism as everything else was ideal. Staff friendly as always. Thanks
Enjoyed our meal
First class service , first class food love it
First visit, heard good feedback from friend, decided to visit. Was not disappointed. Tended to as soon as we arrived, ordered food and arrived in no time, fresh hot food and was delicious . Will be back
Great service and great food ! We will be back !!!
The food is fab! Will definitely be back!
Great restaurant with fantastic staff, always a pleasure to visit. Food is excellent and the cream egg cheesecake was special.
Fantastic meal last night, can’t recommend this place enough.
Great service food was top notch
Great little restaurant, good food and friendly staff! Definitely will be back!
Had the salt and chilli burger and looked like it had just been flung on the plate, the chicken wasn’t even that warm, my boyfriend had the satay chicken burger which was basically just peanut butter smeared over the top. Obviously the chef couldn’t be bothered to do his job. Atmosphere was rubbish we were just flung in a corner out the way service was shocking looked like the red headed girl couldn’t be bothered to do her job, the other girl was fab! Value for money is terrible for being ‘the niche’ everyone raves so much about it’s honestly shocking! tiny burger on a massive plate with a large bowl of chips to make up for the portion. It’s embarrassing. Do better. Definitely won’t be back and definitely wont be spreading any good word about you anytime soon.
Great little find! Fab menu, lots of choice. Great service. Cosy surroundings. Will definitely be back.
