The Old Bill is unbeatable if you’re looking for an intimate dinner venue in Oldham’s town centre – it oozes old-world charm, and it has a cluster of very well-stocked wine racks with a vintage to suit any occasion. What really makes this a sure-fire venue, though, is its quality Italian cuisine, which ers on the side of classical with fantastic results. You know that everything you get dished up here on Greaves Street is done in the proper style (how nonna would’ve done it, just a bit fancier), from juicy melon and prawns to half a leg of lamb in mint and redcurrant demi-glace sauce, port wine and blue-cheese based filletini di manzo fillet steak to The Old Bill’s famous torta fritta garlic bread – a 60-year-old recipe served with Papa’s special tomato ragu: light, and irresistible. The Old Bill does a great early-bird and pre-theatre menu, too, or you can line up a meal along with one of their great events like live jazz.
Steak night Thursday offer is a brilliant deal and great value for money. Welcoming and lovely service as always and being able to order extras such as a starter was a good option. Will definitely be going again for this ☺️
Really love this place , been going for years , lovely atmosphere and family run with good food and atmosphere , never dissapoints and worth the travel
Very pleasant, would return. Food good .staff couldn't do enough for you. My friend who accompanied me is taking her family in April for her birthday celebration.
Really nice staff and the food is excellent and to me good value for money as well. Felt very relaxed and there is no pressure on you to order or once you have finished your meal there not in a rush to get you out of the door
Fantastic place with lovely, attentive staff and such delicious food! I cannot fault anything at all about this place. The lovely music and ambience, made for a beautiful birthday meal. Been many a time and have never been disappointed.
Can't ask for better food or service, this place is a gem, had a fantastic afternoon here for my birthday and we were looked after by excellent staff and the food was even better.
Absolutely fabulous night out for my son's 23rd birthday. We we're made to feel like part of the family. Would recommend the place definately. A night to remember and will definately be repeating it.
Went as a party of four all ordered different meals and all superb. All of the staff were excellent and great customer service provided. Highly recommend will certainly be going again.
Very disappointed as we booked a reservation through Quandoo then had a call from the Old Bill on the afternoon we were going that day to say it was overbooked could not accommodate us.
My favourite place in Oldham. Amazing food, lovely atmosphere and the best staff. Would recommend this place to anyone! Families, couples, groups of friends, you won't be disappointed
