Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is a lovely Bills restaurant located in the middle of Nottingham. We took advantage of the children’s eat free deal during the holidays which is great value! We had a bit of trouble with our seating but this was quickly resolved with manager who...looked after us really well during a very busy period. The kids were well looked after with their food coming quickly and some crayons and paper activities. 100% recommend the BBQ Bourbon beef burger with extra bacon - absolutely delicious! Thank-you for a wonderful lunch despite us being outnumbered by 4 under 4!!!More

First opportunity to visit Bills in Nottingham, sadly not the best experience. Staff were friendly and attentive but the food was bland to awful. The venue looks great but not the best place to eat.

Went to day for brunch which we enjoyed but i do believe you should be made aware of the service charge which at£19 41p on our bill was a lot certainly should be told before hand not read it after we have paid it therefore...puts you off tipping the staff who do a great job and i do wonder if the staff dont receive any of it then why is it on thats the only issue that we hadMore

Sometimes I really don’t get Trip Advisor and how it works. How on earth can Bills be higher on the ratings than Iberico??? Pure madness! We ate at both places today and the breakfast at Bills was luke warm to say the least. Blatantly everything...is pre-cooked and kept warm. When my husband mentioned that his breakfast was barely warm, he received a very luke warm apology. I definitely don’t think it was worth the £13-£14!!!!! When we paid the bill, we were not asked about the “optional” 12% tip. I would have marked lower but the coffee was good and even though the staff not particularly sorry about the tepid food, they were friendly.More

So impressed with Bill’s Nottingham. First dinner out with our newly diagnosed 17 yr old coeliac son and was nervous about his options and range of food. On the internet it looked minimal. Couldn’t have been more wrong! The staff were clearly geared up to...helping people with allergies but in a relaxed confident way that didn’t feel like ‘an issue’. He was given a gluten free menu with plenty of options, that took away the worry of ordering something incorrect. All our plates of food were delicious, starter, main and pudding. All the staff were delightful and helpful. Could not have wished for better service. Will revisit again. Highly impressed with Bills, it means a lot to people with fiddly dietary needs, thank you for getting it just right.More

We went for breakfast before we started Christmas shopping. The portions where huge and the food was delicious. Charming place and staff were busy but friendly. Quick service and the place was busy. Would go again.

Fantastic service, came in with our 2 month baby. We were offered a few tables around the restaurant and it just made us feel really at ease. They also offered to move tables so we had plenty of room with our pram. Our stater came...out within a few minutes, really lovely and fresh calamari. Mains were only a couple of minutes and again everything tasted really fresh. All staff were really lovely and extremely considerate especially when we had a baby with us. Will definitely return next time we’re in Nottingham.More

The chipotle mayo was very good, and the food arrived very quickly. The starters were very good, particularly the labneh, chicken dumplings and calamari. Service was good, we were served by Lee, who was very attentive.
