    We enjoyed an excellent meal at Bill's yesterday. The service was great; really knowledgeable waiter who was very helpful! We'd highly recommend!

    Lovely food, friendly staff and quick service at Bill's!

    On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly front of house, and despite arriving really early (we booked online as wasn't sure how how busy it be) we were quickly seated. The food & service was excellent as always - we have eaten at other Bills restaurants, hence we knew it would be good. I just love the fact that they ask how I'd like my burger - not all chains do that.

    Good service and a nice restaurant. Unfortunately, the food left something to be desired as it was a bit bland. I had taken the option on the three-course set menu. For balance, it's worth mentioning that I have previously dined in this restaurant and eaten from the main menu, which was delicious.

    Have eaten at Bills several times before. Good food and service!

    All good, very enjoyable meal before a theatre visit.
    Will definitely return!

    The meal was very good we had the pre theatre 12.95 meal the drinks were a little pricey and the service charged bumped the price up which is automatic added to the bill it should be advertised with the service charge added because it added 5 pounds to the bill. All in all good but don't like being mislead by playing with words. Bills in my opinion need to take the service charge off the bill and leave it to the customer to leave a tip.

    Nice meal, food was great, service excellent, only dropped a star because the tables could have been a little further apart, I felt a little cramped.

    Would definitely go back!

    Efficient service and friendly staff. Food is very good.

    An early evening pre-show meal. A free glass of prosecco by booking through godine! First time to this chain and I'm sure we'll go back. Good experience all round which met my expectations.

    Fab set meal for 12.95 a person. Lovely service. Had a nice bottle of pino to go with our meal. Paid the 2pound extra each to have the minute steak for the main. Didn't realise at the time though until later on in the evening and couldn't understand why we had been charged £53. Doesn't add up. Shame cos was a beautiful meal.

    Went for breakfast. Food was great. Maybe busy but staff wasn't really around to ask for extra drinks or the bill. Very polite when you found them though.

    Enjoyable dinner for Mothers Day at Bill's.

    Excellent staff. I was quite cold when we got there. The staff sat us down. The young lady that was serving us gave me a blanket and a hot water bottle. How kind is that. You would not get that level of service any where else.
    I love going to Bills we have had lots of happy meals and memories with friends at Bills. Excellent, brilliant, amazing service and meals!! Love bills

    A great meal ahead of a show at the concert hall. Service was friendly, attentive and timely. The food was excellent and good value for money. We will return again.

    Great service with friendly staff and really good atmosphere. We had a really nice meal with our uni son. Good choice of drinks on offer. Food was good and well presented, standard of high end bar. Would return primarily due to friendly staff and atmosphere.

    It was a good meal, great value for price & we had some lovely wine too. There was a slight mix up at the beginning where we were led to different tables, but all worked out well.


    Went for breakfast at Bill's. Food was very good.

    Went for the pre theatre menu. very good. had a great time

    Met up with some old work friends and had a great meal and service at Bill's Nottingham. No pressure for the table we talked all afternoon. Highly recommended.

    Excellent service from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Food and menu choice was amazing! Such a relaxing fantastic atmosphere at Bill's. Thankyou to all who made it a brilliant dinning experience

    Grandson loved his meal, great value. Service with a smile!

    The one of the best places in Nottingham!

    Very good food and nice atmosphere at Bill's.

    Great place, great service, very friendly staff and complimented with a fantastic choice from the menu.
    Also the drinks menu is lovely too, we had a great time there and it has a great atmosphere.
    This isn't the first time we've been to Bills and it won't be the last either!



    Had a lovely evening , the service was good did not feel rushed given plenty of time to enjoy your food. Will be returning again soon.

    Part of a chain but good atmosphere and friendly staff.

    Excellent service and food, only let down was my steak was slightly overdone.

    Excellent service and food.

    Staff were very warming and made us feel very welcome. Food was amazing. Overall a brilliant restaurant with amazing staff! Highly Recommend!

    Lovely atmosphere and great staff, was celebrating a birthday and they brought out a dessert he a candle and sang happy birthday! Great!

    Nice food and drinks with a lively atmosphere!

    Very good meal. Quick service and lovely atmosphere.

    Great decor with a relaxed ambience, the food was delicious and service was great. Friendly staff, good value for money, modern but very welcoming. Will go back for sure!

    Good helpful service. Good quality food. Shame that there's only bottled beer.

    Pre-Theatre Menu at Bill's was short but appetizing. Very pleasant waitress.

    Loved the food and the ambiance of Bill's restaurant, it was our first visit but not our last I am sure!

    Food was good at Bill's and the service was excellent.

    Excellent meal and service was brilliant, had set menu but would have normal menu next time, defo go again

    Good food in a quirky and buzzy (quite noisy) atmosphere. Staff and service was very good but object to having 10% service charge added on to my bill. Two courses for five people cost £167.00 so it's a place for a treat rather than a regular food haunt.

    Excellent food, service and atmosphere. All of the staff were brilliant all night - all I can say is that the Prosecco cocktails were small.

    Excellent food and great value for money!

    We opted for the 3-course set menu which was excellent value. The food was delicious and the staff were very helpful. I highly recommend Bill's and will go again.

    Tasty food, but they got the starters wrong & the soup was only just tepid - lovely obliging staff, great atmosphere. 10% service added to the bill automatically which I think is a bit cheeky - generally good though

    Can't fault it! Quick and friendly service backed up by good quality food and vibrant atmosphere.

    Bill's in Nottingham is a really nice venue. We were seated by the window as requested. The food was excellent, even if we almost didn't finish our desserts! Service was excellent too. Would recommend!

    Very nice food and enjoyable evening

    Great night, lovely food and friendly welcoming staff.

We say…

Formerly a bank, Bill’s Restaurant is located within a beautiful Georgian building right in the centre of Nottingham. Conveniently located on Queen Street, only a few minutes walk from both the Royal Centre and the Cornerhouse Cineworld cinema, it’s in a great location for a pre-show meal with family and friends.

Bill’s prides itself on being a place for everyone: inside, there are larger seating areas for groups and cosy booths for couples. The interior of Bill's is stylish but relaxed, with leather seating and accents of purple; there's also the option of al fresco dining in the summer months. With an array of quirky lampshades, handwritten blackboards and candles, it's a fun and pleasant setting to spend time with loved ones.

The menu offers food from breakfast through to dinner, combining traditional British dishes with exciting twists: think homely and traditional but always modern and fresh. To start, you can choose between dishes such as the crumbed halloumi sticks with lemon garlic mayo and pickled red onions and the crispy calamari with garlic and parsley, served with tartare sauce and red pepper tapenade. For mains, the slow-cooked barbecue-style pork ribs with sweet potato mash, barbecue beans and creamy coleslaw is a surefire favourite, whilst there's no shortage of vegetarian options: the roasted aubergine and chickpea dhal is always a tasty choice.

Make sure you leave room for dessert: an array of American-style desserts are served, including the popular warm mini cinnamon doughnuts and the pecan pie with malted banana ice cream. For those with children, a kid’s menu is also offered which serves smaller versions of Bill’s favourites, such as mac and cheese, alongside some added extras that kids are sure to love. Alongside your meal you can enjoy a selection of wines and traditional cocktails, plus a variety of juices and smoothies. Bill’s really does have something for everyone!

Whether you’re eating out with the whole family before a show, heading to breakfast with friends or meeting for a business lunch, Bill’s Nottingham is a great place to enjoy food and time spent together.
