Formerly a bank, this Georgian building is a beauty. With high ceilings and a striking mezzanine, Bill’s Nottingham restaurant is a mix of larger seating areas and cosy booths, with further seating outside for sunny days. Convenient for both the Theatre Royal Concert Hall and the Nottingham Playhouse, Bill’s Nottingham restaurant serves great food all day and into the night.

Food was bland and they made a mistake on our sharing platter. Even though they made a mistake they corrected it by taking the correct platter off the bill

Our time at bills was brilliant. I really really enjoyed it. Our sever was absolutely attentive, kind and made us laugh. Our chicken was a tiny bit dry. At the end of our bill, he took off all of our desserts as a sorry. We thought this was incredibly kind and thoughtful. I would definitely visit again. Brownie was amazing 😍

I have been to Bill’s several times but on this occasion the service was poor considering the 12.5 per cent service charge I paid. Seated and then sat fifteen minutes to order a drink. Service was poor given the restaurant was extremely quiet

The service was prompt efficient and friendly, it was early morning so not too busy , the all day brunch and poached eggs on toast with bacon were very good and the coffee hot and a lovey roast

Waited 45 minutes for a drink. Ordered starters and mains all bought to table together. Mains returned to kitchen. No cutlery, plates or serviettes given to eat a sharing plater.
2 other tables walked out with disgust whilst we were there. Shall not be returning.

This was the last night of our honeymoon. After being let down last minute we booked Bills and were very impressed. Lovely surroundings and very polite and organised staff. Aperol Spritzers were fabulous as well as the food. Will definitely return.

Ambience lacking but I suspect that is more to do with the fact that Nottingham was less busy than pre pandemic. Staff very good as usual and real attention paid to allergy which is much appreciated.

Always been a fan of Bill’s but not on this occasion. Macaroni Cheese which was tasteless, salad bowl dish, with two poached eggs, one non-alcoholic beer and one Diet Coke, a few pence short of £40.00. Not good vale and definitely overpriced.

Not offered daily special menu, waitress wasn’t aware and had to ask manager.

No Pinot wine, advised but offered no list, had to fetch wine list, had house wine but charged for Pinot on bill.

Didn’t pay service charge added on as service was poor. Feel untrained staff are trying their best. Bill’s needs to do better.

I wasn’t expecting to have to write anything. I’ve been back twice recently because it’s quite nice. Any issues are covid related so it’s no one’s fault really.

The staff were friendly and polite.

The food was slightly on the cool side.

The restaurant smelt like tuna as soon as you walk in.

The juices were nice
