Founded by Chef Stephen Andrews, Fish & Forest is an incredible York restaurant dedicated to exceptional seafood and game meat, with a focus on sustainability and locally foraged produce. In 2023 it was recognised in the Michelin Guide for its Commitment to Sustainable Gastronomy; being recently listed on Harden’s; as well as receiving an AA Rosette.
In 2024 it prepares to move to a bigger venue in York city centre.
“My first thought when I found NIMA was that they seemed to really champion independent businesses. I set up the meeting to discuss what I need to move to a bigger premises, and what I got out of the meeting was so much more. It was a fresh new look at what the potential of my brand can be.”

After reviewing the existing Fish & Forest offer and reviewing their future plans, we put a plan together towards how the brand could make an even bigger impact in the city.
We offered creative direction around a series of photoshoots and a brand new website, before launching a strong nationwide PR campaign that could reintroduce Chef Stephen and the Fish & Forest brand. And then, promote the upcoming launch of their venue and brand new wine bar.

"It was as if Nicky had worked with me for years and as if she already knew the brand for years. It’s incredibly comforting knowing someone is genuine in their approach and genuine in their enthusiasm for what you are trying to achieve.
Since the first meeting Nicky has made sure I stayed on track with the plan we set out. Made sure I was active in implementing some of the changes and very productive in what she has been working towards for Fish&Forest.
We have had an amazing photoshoot and my website has been taken to another level.
I’m very lucky to have been taken on by NIMA and I am grateful for all they have done so far. I continue to look forward to working with them now and in the future.”
