Last week I was invited by the team at Bills to attend their press night and review the reopening of the restaurant and bar area. We got to experience the new menu, interior and drinks menu, and trust me it did not disappoint! The new Bills Leeds is amazing and it has definitely become a very luxurious place to have both cocktails and a meal too.
So as a bit of a backstory… Bills Leeds has been open for a long time but they closed for a while in order to relaunch their restaurant with a more upmarket ambience and new menu, which we got to try at the reopening event.
I genuinely love Bills have changed the decor. It has such a classic and elegant vibe, and would be perfect for a fancy date night or a birthday celebration. I love the dimmed lighting and general elegancy of the place, whilst still having homely decor and friendly ambience. I loved it, particularly all of the chandeliers as I am a magpie when it comes to things that shimmer and shine!
When we entered we were seated near the bar area, which I really liked. I can really imagine that as a cool date venue, because it has a very chilled vibe but equally a lot of atmosphere. We had a look at the drinks menu and got to order what took our fancy. I have really been enjoying flavoured gin at the moment so I ordered a raspberry gin, and my nan ordered a cocktail. They were both so delicious… and didn’t taste like alcohol at all, which is a dangerous combination.
After we had our drinks, one of the amazing bills waiters showed us to our main table in the restaurant, where we placed our man food order. As a side note- all of the waiters at bills were so nice and so accommodating for the whole evening, especially giving us recommendations and advice on what to order!
I cannot get over how amazing the food was, and it was genuinely one of the best meals out I have had in such a long time. I had the chicken breast, which was served with mash potato and vegetables. It was absolutely gorgeous and the portion was huge too, which was amazing. I would definitely recommend going to Bills, I would have never have thought to go their for a more ‘fancy’ meal, but it was definitely more of an upmarket place and had a really luxurious feel.
Then we were onto my favourite part of the whole evening- the desserts. Honestly, it was potentially one of the nicest desserts that I have ever had. Both me and my nan had the chocolate and hazelnut praline sphere, and it was so delightful. Would 100% recommend if you go for food at Bills soon, and I will definitely be having this again!
I genuinely loved that I got to treat my nan to a fancy meal out because of my hard work on my blog. Aged 18 and being a student, treating your family to a fancy meal is not something that is particularly economically feasible, but I love that I can give my family cool experiences like this because of the amount I have worked on my blog and business over the past 3 years, it makes me so so happy to see my hard work paying off.
Overall, my evening at the re-opening of Bills was truly amazing and we will definitely be going back in the future to try even more of the menu. I absolutely loved it, and would definitely recommend it for a fancy meal or a date night, as I think the atmosphere is perfect. Thank you so much to the team at Bills for inviting me and treating us so much, we had an amazing we will definitely be returning in the future! I am a very lucky girl.
