Nicholls Abergavenny: Butterflied Chicken Breast, Stilton Sauce and Seasonal Vegetables.

This is not the type of food that I will normally ‘review’ on this blog.  However, if I feel as though something I eat is worth the mention I will definitely tell you about it.  What might surprise you is the fact Nicholls, Abergavenny is actually a shop selling good quality jewellery, clothing and homeware.  The website describes the space at the back serving food as a ‘Coffee Shop’.  It is not open evenings but with a decent sized menu serving very good quality food it is not like any other Coffee Shop I have visited.

This is the Butterflied Chicken Breast in Stilton Sauce and Seasonal vegetables I ate at Nicholls.

Everything seems fresh.  The chicken is well seasoned and cooked so that it is browned but not tough.   The vegetables are cooked perfectly, still have a little bite, not mush.  The fried potatoes are crispy on the outside and fluffy inside.  The  pickled red cabbage was nice, adding a slight acidity to balance everything a little.  The Stilton sauce was definitely the best part.  It was creamy, cheesy and just the right amount of tangy to make the meal great.

I would also like to mention that the staff are incredibly friendly.  They were very good with my daughter, even providing a takeaway style cup with lid and straw for her juice, which she loved.  She had a platter with bread, ham, salad, fruit, cheese and crisps which I think all small children enjoy.

If you are ever shopping in Abergavenny and wanting a nice breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea I would definitely recommend trying Nicholls.  The menu online seems to be out of date so have a look when you get there and check the specials too.

If you do go, let me know what you think 🙂
