    Pretty poor welcome on arrival. Food was below par also. Eg chicken on brunch sandwich was very overcooked and there was not much of it. Just a general lack of care in the kitchen and front of house staff forgetting what customer service is all about.

    I booked a table for 2 a week in advance. Won’t do this again as we were offered the worse tables in the restaurant. Other people just walking in were given better bigger tables and they were mostly in 2’s. I would have thought that taking the time to book would ensure a good table not those near the service areas or by the stairs. Waitress was a bit surley when we changed our table. Otherwise a good experience.

    I hate leaving bad reviews but the food was just okay. All fried eggs (multiple plates) were pretty rubbery and sausage/black puddings were overdone. Avocado and poached egg toast was very bland. Two orders out of eight came out wrong and when we mentioned this, the attitude from the server was incredibly poor. To be fair to the manager, he did reduce the bill and took feedback.

    We booked the table at Bills the evening before due to another restaurant in Nottingham only allowing us a 1.5 hour slot to eat. As this was our sons 21st Birthday celebrations we didn’t want to be constricted by time. The online booking was easy and we got confirmation straight away. We arrived at Bills the front of house staff were really welcoming and directed us to a table in a quiet area of the restaurant. We booked a high chair as we had our 18mth granddaughter with us so this area was perfect. The staff were very attentive throughout and asked if we had any allergies or dietary needs. The meals were a little pricey, however, they were all presented well on varied crockery, tasty and hot. The staff even added a candle to my sons dessert and joined in the singing of ‘Happy Birthday’ which was a nice touch. The ambiance of the restaurant was on point and the decor was vintage mixed with shabby chic. We had a lovely chandelier above our table. The only minor grumble is the small print regarding the service charge at 24%. Which you could easily miss. We would have tipped anyway, but we just went ahead with the charge. It felt really good to be out out as a family again in a relaxed, but vibrant setting. I would recommend Bills to family and friends. Thank you

    Lovely eclectic setting, lots of chandeliers and distressed wood, comfy chairs & decent gaps between tables. Staff very helpful and friendly & and definitely add to a good night out. We chose the 16.95 3 course. Soup delicious, chicken dry & chips very crispy. Steak was cooked well & pink but dudnt think £3.50 extra was warranted. Deserts lovely (donuts & salted caramel tart we were 50/50). Didn't complain as for under £20 we got what we expected an average cooked but tasty & nicely presented 3 course dish. Don't lose the staff they were lovely and made our night.

    Arrived at 5.30pm and left at 7pm for the theatre- we were only offered one drink. Food was served quickly but noone came to see if the food was OK or asked us if we would like desserts. We had finished eating by 6.20pm and would have definitely had more drinks and desserts if the staff were attentive. Plenty of staff laying empty tables but noone actually attending to the people dining it would seem. Tried to gain attention but to no avail. Would try somewhere else next time.

    Good food but shame about the 12.5% service charge automatically added to the bill and in very small print on the menu. It should be that customers choose to add tips etc at their own discretion not have to ask to have this removed. It is supposed to be based on the service recieved so by default the restaurants are pre judging their own service and assuming customer will pay as most will be too embarrassed to ask for this to be removed or reduced.

    Starter was good - sticky duck Steak was ok- chimichuri sauce so poor - like a green oil ! The red wine and Stilton sauce was as poor ( tasted like gravy) Not very imaginative sides with steak a lump of rocket Overall mediocre Poor choice on menu - there were too many burger options. I had steak as little else inspired me . Would not rush back

    Very nice place. The waiter was very attentive and polite. The food was lovely, it just worked out nicely before we went off the the Concert Hall. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the toilets were a bit dirty. It was getting late though and obviously had a busy day. Will go again
