    We booked online and when we Arrived, we got seated pretty quickly which was good but we got seated right in the corner of the restaurant which from the beginning and going into our meal we knew it was going to be a issue as we was away from everyone else. Food and drinks arrived in a timely manner but once we finished, that was where the issues began. The table next to us got their bill and that was it, no one else (staff wise) came over to take our plates away or even ask if we wanted more drinks or even pudding. We saw a staff member talking to a table and she saw that we had finished, even made eye contact with us on a number of occasions but nothing, didn’t come over. With no exaggeration 50 minutes went past before we decide to get up and flag a member of staff down and turns out they were just chatting to another staff member without checking on us which is so so poor. The restaurant was quite at this point so we didn’t know why no one checked on us. Being put in the corner was a massive issue. When they came over, we ordered pudding and decided to pay at the same time as we didn’t want to wait more time for someone to come over checking if we had finished and give us the bill. Over all experience - poor, will not be going back in a rush what so ever !!!! Advise - GET RID OF THE CORNER TABLE !!!

    Bills food was amazing. Our waitress Becky went above and beyond for our table and nothing was too much trouble. One member of our party (of 7) did not order a starter due to not liking anything they had so Becky made something different on the menu for her instead. We were all attended to promptly, they never rushed us and was fantastic. Becky was outstanding, she really deserves the praise. We had a lovely experience and great food and atmosphere for our work xmas meal.

    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.
