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.
Early menu at 5pm.excellent food and service.Great atmosphere with old police memorabilia on display
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 ☺️
