    The staff was amazing to be honest full of recommendations and checking if the food is okay and if we need extra water and drinks… but I do almost feel bad though because it was literally me and my mrs and one big group in the whole place and they was the loudest group I’ve ever heard in my life and I go clubbing haha

    Our second visit and another enjoyable time. Four ladies with of over 60 years friendship. Lively environment with plenty of customers - always a good sign! Tasty food, friendly, efficient service and very pleasant staff who did not rush us to order or leave! Would thoroughly recommend Bill's Nottingham.

    We booked our "christmas' work lunch and were booked at Bill's Saturday 27th Jan at 1pm. We had attentive service, great food and the place was packed which we loved as there was a great atmosphere. We all had excellent food and the menu choice were great. Thankyou Bill's for giving us a great experience for our much anticipated day out in town.

    Had some really lovely food at bills, however the few little problems was being seated upstairs which was dead and there was a lot more of an atmosphere downstairs! Also being charged £24 for two pint bottles of morretti but didn’t realise until halfway home and was on way to a New Year’s Eve party. Or we could of been charged for the free cocktails that was part of the set menu that was 29.95 each! Anyway don’t let this put you off as the food was amazing and really nice place :)

    Had a wonderful time visiting Bill's with my family to celebrate my graduation. Requested a ground floor table for accessibility and they accommodated this easily. The waiter was fantastic and quick to take our order, and he really couldn't have done a better job to make us feel welcome or go the extra mile, like bringing extra maple syrup for pancakes and joking with my little sister. Food came out quickly and was really great quality, especially for the price. Will happily return in the future

    Been here before and they are so accommodating. I do not like spices or pepper, so always request a plain salad (lettuce, cucumber, tomato and onion) with a piece of chicken. They always deliver to perfection so I always come away extremely happy. The atmosphere is lovely as is the decor. Definitely a place to visit when in Nottingham.

    Will eat there again. Drinks service and mixing was a little patchy. Offered Hendricks gin but then didn’t have any. Asked for slimline tonic but got regular (no big deal) next round drink had different dressing on it or no rosemary and tonic was pre poured so had no idea what it was and no choice as how much to put in at a time (again no biggey) but an irritation. As I said I would eat there again as everything else was fine.

    Got off to a rocky start as when we arrived it became clear that despite having booked the group set dining menu at £21.50 per head this was not available, as it had to be pre-ordered. I didn’t think that this had been made clear at the point of booking and was frustrating. To be fair the manager could not do anything to remedy this, but did calmly explain this despite my clear frustration. The service itself was good and the staff friendly. The food itself was nice however some of our party had a chicken burger one had a burnt bun and the other said the burger itself had a hard crunchy texture, not crispy but crunchy - neither brought this to staff’s attention however, so the restaurant didn’t have the opportunity to remedy it. I had the linguine which had a generous amount of lobster and prawns but was too creamy, not so much it spoilt the dish but it did make it overly rich. Other than that everyone else appeared to enjoy their food and had a good night. Ambiance wise the restaurant was pretty empty for a Thursday night, so there wasn’t much atmosphere, but the interior was what you would expect at Bills and the toilets clean. All in all everyone had a enjoyable evening, although not sure I would rush back given the alternatives in Nottingham.

    Unfortunately our meal wasn’t great. The servers were not at all friendly and looked annoyed. The steak did not taste fresh (like it has been frozen too long then thawed). The calamari was very oily and over fried, so taste was not good. It too a long time to get our bill and then I had to actually go up to pay it took so long. Sorry I don’t like to leave bad reviews but our visit wasn’t good :(

    The manager was unprofessional and disrespectful towards us. She kept interrupting us and urged us to move to another table as we were only a ‘’few’’. One of our colleagues joined later and they made her sit downstairs without letting us know, as we were sitting upstairs. In spite all of this, after finishing dinner, on our way out we thanked her but she responded with a pale smile and didn’t even bothered to ask about our experience or say welcome as a response. So I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who would like to enjoy a decent meal with a group of people
