Haven't been to Bills for a while. We had a pleasant meal, not perfect but nothing is!! Chicken dumplings rather bland and both fish pie and chicken good with a little addition of black pepper, just as it should be - flavour to suit individual taste.
Service was very good if a tiny bit hasty on entry. Very pleasant waiting staff who looked after us well and arrived immediately when she notice the pepper mill wasn't operating 100 percent. Good value for money, cocktail and house wine also fine and the atmosphere was good and lively without being raucous on a Saturday evening. Would recommend.
Enjoyed Bill’s on a regular basis pre Covid and this was our visit after. Pleasant enough but found it overpriced. The mark up on the wine is not acceptable. Staff were lovely but the food comes very quickly course after course so feels like ‘get them in & out’ quickly. The sirloin steak was disappointing (no seasoning) & the bearnaise sauce I ordered with it was tasteless & watery. The atmosphere was good.
Friendly staff, ok service understanding that it was a busy Saturday but shocking amount of dust in the lampshade over our dinner table!
The food was terrible we won’t be going back which is sad! Standards really have dropped
The food was amazing and our waitress was so lovely and kind! She made it really special for my birthday! It was a great meal to celebrate!
Lovely place to eat food delicious . I do however object to service charge being added to the bill, I think it should be a choice and although it is optional I feel people would feel embarrassed to ask for it to be removed.
Lovely helpful and friendly staff showing great concern about my gluten intolerance and looked after us very well. We will go again!
Meal was good value and staff were very attentive.
Staff all really good. Friendly, helpful and patient! Good tasty food.
We ate off the fixed price menu & it was all lovely & great value. Well presented & really good service - a friendly and helpful team
Lovely food, reasonably priced, and the staff are absolutely brilliant, they couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Bravo, Bills :)
Beer prices too high
Food offers great
Rebecca was superb. Beautiful smile and nothing too much trouble so 5 stars for Rebecca. 😀
Several items not available from menu. and no draft beer. Food was not great and fish pie not got in the middle.
Love the vibes , and great food, very delicious my favorite is the crumble
Had a pleasant dining experience. Staff were attentive.
We visited bills yesterday & the food we had was ok. The service wasn’t great. They’ve employed lots of young people that seemed very busy standing around chatting and we had to shout people over (once they had finished their conversation first) to get sauces for our meals before it went cold as they didn’t ask when they gave us our meals which I think is such a basic thing to ask when working on a restaurant. The waitress we had seemed like she really didn’t want to be there at all & a service charge was added on top of our meal. I disagree with adding a service charge. I know it’s optional but we felt too rude to ask to have it taken off the bill. I always leave a tip when going for a meal but if I’m honest I don’t feel like the service was good enough for one.
Staff very helpful - it was my son's birthday and they made him feel special
The food and service was amazing, and for the price, it was outstanding. We’d have paid double for what we had.
Perfect portions, amazing flavours and beautiful presentation. The servers were all polite, friendly and attentive.
The decor and atmosphere is wonderfully vibrant, but laid back. A perfect mix for when you go with friends to dine and talk.
A fine selection of food and drink without being over the top and offering too much, which sometimes can lead to option paralysis, where there’s too much to choose from. Well rounded menu with a choice for every taste and diet.
I had the beetroot and goats cheese risotto with a side of sweet potato fries, Halloumi fries for a starter and the salted caramel and chocolate tart.
Oh…my…god! The Halloumi fries were cooked to perfection, they were crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The risotto was so tender and flavoursome and the tart was such a wonderfully rich, decadent treat. 10/10
I also ordered a Hedgerow Fizz to have with my main meal. Beautiful. The right amount of flavour and fizz. Everyone in the group enjoyed every mouthful and we will be back, as well as telling everyone else we know to visit!
Keep up the great work, you have a wonderful thing going! Would recommend a million times over!
Food came out really quickly which we were surprised at because it was so busy. Lovely food and good atmosphere. Will be back again.
Meal was lovely and staff were great but was a bit surprised to find that when I asked for water I was given a bottle that later cost me nearly £4 if I had known this i wouldn’t have had it
Also the extra surcharge of nearly £5 that I didn’t realise I had paid
So £9 I didn’t really want to pay
First time visiting as a wheelchair user (on a Saturday afternoon) and although it was packed with people and there were some tight spots trying to get through to places, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The staff were fantastic & really looked after us so a big shout out to them! The food was great, the disabled toilet was nice and clean, there was plenty of space around me when I was sat at the table in my wheelchair so didn't feel cramped in & the atmosphere was great! Would definitely recommend!
Food was expensive however staff was nice. Quality of ingredients wasn’t as expected for the price. Cramped spaces. Coffee ok
Booked for a table of 7. . squeezed in at the back .. way out of it ...main room had 2 people on the massive plush sofas ....hardly a good use of space ..especially as we spent £170 .....not what I expected hence no tip
The food was amazing and wonderful service. Will definitely be eating here again.
Nice place for Brunch, we recommended to our friends
My mum said it was the best steak she’s had in a long time. I also had the steak and it was very good. All the other food we had was great. Very comfortable environment and staff were helpful, polite and courteous.
Great food, but the service needs to improve. I was part of a table of 6 for a special occasion, and we had to wait in the doorway while the table was being prepared, obstructing other customers. Then a longer than normal wait for drinks and to order food. The food arrived promptly after that, and was delicious.
After we'd finished the main course, the dessert menu was not offered for a long time, and when it finally was, nothing happened, no orders taken.
Then one of the party had to leave the table to ask for the bill, which had a service charge already added, which was optional. I opted not to pay it, as the service was not what I thought was worth paying extra for. I understand and accept that there are issues due to the current situation, and a lot of places are short staffed, but there was little to no engagement from the staff, and while I will visit Bill's again, I will be wary because of the lack of service. You can do better.
Had calamari for starter, very tasty. Fish pie for main course, also very good, nice big pieces of fish, tender prawns and tasty potatoes and sauce. Had a side of broccoli and mange-tout which was cooked well. Good prompt service.
We were seated in an alcove which suited us as we were able to chat and didn't feel we were adjacent to other diners. Service was very good, the waitress was pleasant, courteous and attended to our table without rushing.
Good choice of food & good quality
Really nice food and quick service, we would come here again
Have been there before and it was great. What I cannot understand is the 12.5% service charge that is optional (we declined the charge). If it was a tip directly for the server then no issue but apparently its not?
I thought that this situation i.e. the service charge with this organisation had been sorted but apparently not.
We tipped directly to the server for her excellent service
Will think twice re any re visits as not happy about a service charge that goes to the company and not its employees who actually do the work and create the experience.
Food was amazing, smoothies were lush. Atmosphere/decor was unique
Never been to bills in Nottingham before
Staff excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.
We booked last minute to go to Bills Nottingham which we were happy to get in. Staff were friendly. However our food turned up within 15 minutes of ordering and we still didn’t have our drinks which we ordered 2 drinks and water. They said the bar was busy which I understand but the water could of been delivered to the table at least. Then when eating the chicken kebabs they were over cooked and dry like they had been cooked and left a side and then served to us. The puddings were great and that was the best bit of the night but again the puddings arrived before we had cutlery at the table to eat it. It seemed a little disorganised, surely drinks and cultery should be at the tables before the food is served. Also when ordering drinks they had no passion fruit and most cocktails have that in so we couldn’t have cocktails.
Lovely evening, great service, spicy tortilla starter was not spicy. Everything else was good though
Lovely pre concert supper
We managed to get a quiet table around a corner so felt very covid comfortable!! Great waitress
Good food. Thankyou
A lovely restaurant, friendly staff that take food allergies very seriously. Food was delicious, great venue for a special night out. Would definitely recommend.
Thought the service was OK. Table not ready when we arrived despite booking online...the restaurant was not overly busy. Our waitress seemed disinterested and was not very attentive. Food was expensive for what we got...quality was OK but nothing special.
We had breakfast at Bills. Service was good and the food was delicious.
