I have never needed glasses until recently and came into Gray & Bull with a prescription looking for some Moscot glasses. The assistant, Darrell was fantastic in the 3 socially distanced visits I made in-store: helping me try out a number of different frames and finding the ones which would best suit me, explaining the differences between the lenses available for them and finally picking up the finished product. I left Gray & Bull very satisfied and confident in my purchase and I am very grateful that I decided to shop locally in Nottingham. Five stars.

I must start on how WONDERFUL the staff are at Gray & Bull; one of the best experiences I have had! All personal, great consultations, relaxed yet honest atmosphere and conversations, and I also liked how there was no pushy or hard-selling (staff don't get commission, so I got the right service).

The atmosphere, including staff, was warm and comfortable, with lots of care given into my needs.
Staff have awesome taste in helping to choose the right frames and working with the staff was a breeze.
Fully recommended anyone to go here first for a fun, detailed, and honest service.

After a short visitation earlier last week, I booked an appointment for today.

Gray & Bull have a cool art-deco/turn-of-the-century exterior, and homely modern yet minimal/chic interior.
Lots of independent frames placed on white walls, giving the frames the room to be the focus.

That first consultation was a blast, with Darrell and the team all being AMAZE in helping me find the perfect set of spectacles to suit my style and features: SALT Henry in antique silver!

SALT Optics is an independent California brand, and the Henry frames are super cool: 100% titanium, including nose pads (titanium beta) and arms all the way to the temple, with the entire frame handmade in Japan.

My appointment today was a blast; rechecked my frame of choice, an excellent thorough yet relaxed eye test, and a great second (one-to-one) styling consultation, where we discussed lenses. This lens consultation was very detailed as my needs are for the absolute clearest lenses I can have. Lots of clear and concise information was given to me, and any questions I asked Amy she answered brilliantly.

For my frames and my needs, the team helped me chose the Nikon SeeCoat Bright lenses, where the coating enhances low light, improves contrast, and allows for more vivid colour (including the red spectrum of colours).

Additionally, these Nikon SeeCoat Bright lenses have, as as standard; 12 months guarantee, anti-glare, anti-reflection, UV protection, scratch resistance, anti-smudge and dust resistance. I also chose, at additional cost, for my lenses to be fully hand-made from the ground up (NOT cut down from a larger glass but made up to the size of my chosen frames), and to be the thinnest lenses available to suit the frames at 1.74.

After such a wonderful session with Gray & Bull, I fully paid for my frames and lenses.

I liked that the team would check over my spectacles when they are at the store, to ensure that they are perfect before contacting me; a lovely bit of extra care and service!

All in all, this was a considerable investment, but for the best lenses and frames to suit me, this is an investment of personal enjoyment, extreme long use, and both longevity and durability.
Gray & Bull also provide great after care services, so I have a place to go to for any issues too!

Thank you to the team at Gray & Bull for looking after me and getting my glasses sorted!

My Grandmother-In-Law was a lomg time user of Gray & Bull. I found the experience nice and relaxing and clam. Great service all round!

M. Goodwin


I chose Gray & Bull Styling Opticians as it is an independent business. First class service from first class staff. Thank you.

A. Green


I chose Gray & Bull initially because of the shop front, and then because it was recommended to me by an optician. I cannot fault the experience in any way. Friendly and superb service. And fast!

M. Walker


I am a previous satisfied customer of Gray & Bull Styling Opticians. I had placed my old glasses on the bonnet of my wife's car when cleaning it. Subsequently she drove off and the glasses were never seen again. Moral - don't clean wife's car!

Gray & Bull give very good, personal service with well trained, professional staff.

G. Riche


I chose Gray & Bull Styling Opticians because I wanted to use an independent company for a more personalised experience. They were extremely professional and tailored the experience to me as an individual. I would recommend Gray & Bull to anyone - it was nice to feel special!

M. Rai


Excellent personal service. The gent wanted to make sure I was 100% happy with my choice before going ahead. Really pleased with my new sunglasses. Thank you

D. Adams


I chose Gray & Bull at random after my previous optician retired. Since then I have always been satisfied with the service I have received. The eye tests are always very thorough.



A BIG THANK YOU to Darrell for supplying me with such extraordinary eye wear. I use the term "eye wear" on purpose. I wear glasses all the time and they have become part of the outfit I wear.

Over the past 10 years I have been to a number of opticians in Nottingham, from the large high street ones to individual opticians, but nowhere have I found such a selection of frames from outstanding designers.

The eye test was very thorough and - finally - I have got lenses I can see with.

Initially I was looking to buy one or two Cazal frames, but then I saw the Francis Klein collection and fell in love with it. I liked the frames so much that I ended up buying three Francis Klein frames plus the two Cazal frames I initially wanted.

Yes, it was not a cheap exercise, but good eye sight is so important. Quality comes at a price and usually one gets what one pays for. These frames are of such high quality that they will last for a long time.

Now I have glasses that will protect my eyes from the sun, glasses that will be ideal for driving (also night driving) and glasses that will be just fun to wear.

Darrell has been great in his styling tips and did an outstanding job in fitting the frames. I am most impressed by the service offered at Gray & Bull and I will tell friends about it. The little goodie bag with a lens cleaning cloth, lens cleanser and not to forget the delicious chocolates was just the perfect final touch.

Again, many thanks and kind regards.

M. Bernacchia


Fantastic experience - nothing too much trouble. Outstanding customer service with genuine attention to requirements and needs. Try this opticians - you know it makes sense.

P. Buxton


I have often passed the store but not been in before. My new lenses are the best lenses I have ever had (I'm a glasses wearer of over 20 years). The team are extremely friendly and helpful. I was not rushed in any way - excellent service and excellent experience unlike some other opticians. I have had very positive feedback on my new glasses.

C. McLaughlin


I have passed the shop front on many occasions and liked the presentation of the different from usual glasses. Gray & Bull have "above and beyond service" in getting the right choice of frames and matching lens shape. My experience was fantastic. All staff have been great and made me feel welcome and have also been very patient in allowing me to take time choosing a frame. The experience is not the run of the mill hurry up and go - it has been a personal service. Thanks.

C. Clark


I'm a sucker for a 1930's shopfront and the business looked quirky and interesting. I found Gray & Bull scientifically informative and the staff were very attentive. I am very pleased with my new glasses.

V. Dawson


I have been a customer of Gray & Bull since the 1970's and have never used any other opticians. The staff are pleasant and always friendly.

P. Bennett


I chose Gray & Bull because of the range of frames as well as the quality of lenses and the service from the staff. My experience was excellent compared to other opticians I have used in the past.

J. Mitchell


I came to Gray & Bull after leaving my previous optician because of various focal problems that they could not resolve. Gray & Bull were able to sort me out perfectly and also find me a new frame. I will definately be coming back and would strongly recommend them.

R. Hubbard


Superb choices of high quality luxury frames. Very friendly, professional and knowledgeable staff and great custoer service. Thank you for a great experience. 

S. Gobel


Lovely staff! Great service! Yor certainly get what you pay for. If you value your eyes, go visit the staff at Gray & Bull!

D. Kirk


I chose Gray & Bull because of the traditional shop front and the interesting display in the window. My son plays ice hockey and needed a pair of glasses that would fit under his helmet. The staff are very professional and informed. Well done.

J. Alden


Gray & Bull offer the best choice of hard to find frames and also offer the widest choice of lens options that I have ever seen. Their customer service and personal approach are second to none, and they really take the time to get to know you and your needs so that they can recommend the best products. I will never go anywhere else.



I wanted to try an independent optician rather than usual high street operators. On receiving my new glasses I could not read at all. Gray & Bull immediately fixed the problem which turned out to be the prescription that I was originally given by one of the large multiples. Brilliant service - first class. I will return - thank you.

D. Filsell


I had known then name of the practice for many years - when I needed to find an opticians - where else would I have gone? My new trendy Maui Jim sunglasses had their first outing to India, and were superb. I can't compare Gray & Bull with any other opticians as I haven't felt the need to try anywhere else. The service that I get at Gray & Bull is simply wonderful and the atmosphere is great.

M. Baker


I came to Gray and Bull as they have a better choice of shades. 10/10.

H. Jones


Very good service and great range of frames with helpful advice over choice. Having had problems with my varifocals elsewhere it was a refreshing change to be cared for and sorted at Gray and Bull.

R. Hubbard


A friend recommended Gray & Bull to me as I was going to travel all the way to London for my next Theo glasses and then discovered Gray & Bull sell them, so got a lovely new pair. It was refreshing to be able to speak to a member of the team who was familiar with the Theo range. I got the personal touch. I would strongly recommend Theo as a brand

M. Ruminski


I wanted an independent optician that provided a personal service. My parents used Gray & Bull in the past. There is no rush and time is taken with each individual to ensure they have the correct eye needs. I have tried large companies before but they are unable to get the varifocal lenses correct. The other opticians cannot provide the service that Gray & Bull can. Eyes are important - you only get one pair. Because Gray & Bull are independent, they get to know their customers. Both myself and my husband are clients, and if one of us visits, the staff always ask after the other. Brilliant service.

C. Pink


I came to Gray & Bull as I wasn't happy with the results from the previous optician that I'd used. I wanted better quality frames and more time and attention when having my eye test. Gray & Bull provided a much better service. It feels more personalised, not just getting you through as quick as possible. Gray & Bull have friendlier staff who give honest opinions when choosing glasses rather than just trying to sell the most expensive pair. I'm really happy with the service they provide.

M. Slatcher


I have been a client of Gray & Bull since 1953. My current glasses are the lightest I have ever had and are so comfortable.

J. A. Hall


I chose Gray & Bull as I wanted a personal service, which I received. I have had many positive comments about my new glasses. I found the staff very professional and friendly and have recommended Gray & Bull to family and friends.

P. Davis


I was recommended to Gray & Bull by a friend when I worked in Nottingham about 30 years ago. I have always been satisfied with the attention to detail and service provided.

A. P. Bain


I have been a Gray & Bull client from 1987 and the reason I return is the dependability of the service.

R. Page


I chose Gray & Bull as I was dissatisfied with the service from the big chains. I ended up with comfortable spectacles.

I. Campbell


I have been going to Gray & Bull since 1971. I have never wanted to change to another opticians as I have always appreciated the personal service. The staff always go the extra mile.

A. Rae


I use Gray & Bull as my opticians as I love the frames they offer. I was overjoyed to find they stocked Dita glasses as this was on my 'to have' list! I enjoyed the whole process of buying my new Dita glasses. Everyone was really helpful and wanted to ensure that I got the right pair just for me.

C. Bech


I found Gray & Bull on a comparison website and liked their great reviews. They were very thourough and professional and I would recommend . Very impressed.

J. Rennie


 I chose Gray & Bull because I wanted a unique looking frame and top market lenses. It was more personal in every way. I am really pleased with my new frames - they look amazing. 

S. Burrows-Flower


I was looking for Mykita Mylon frames and a high customer service level and attention detail. To point of collection - fantastic service level and attention to detail. I look forward to dealing with Amy and Darrell in the future.

D. Ingram

H. Brougham

J. Stuart


I have been a customer of Gray & Bull before. I chose to come back as they would let me use my own frame and the new lenses that I now have are really light and confortable. An excellent experience compared to other opticians.

M. Ward


I chose Gray & Bull because they are a very well established firm with a wide range of different kinds of spectacles. I would particularly like to thank the optom who took great pains to find me the right lenses. As a result, I can now read very small print with my new reading glasses, which I have not been able to do without a magnifying glass for many years. Gray & Bull have agreeable and well-trained staff, who are a pleasure to deal with.

Prof. B. Hamilton


Being from the states I had no idea how the purchase of glasses work in the U.K. Amy was wonderful making sure the new frames fit my face and that nothing was better than the 1st choice! I've worn glasses for over 10 years, this is my first experience with someone taking time to make sure my new frames fit my face and brought out my eyes. Amy and Darrell are AWESOME! Thank you!

J. Judd


I found Gray & Bull online. They are fantastic - gave me clear and informative information. Big Thanks!!!

P. Clark-Coates


I was recommended by D. Franks. I had a brilliant experience and I will be back next year. Darrell and Amy were both very helpful, and the optician was very good too!

R. Franks


I wasn't happy with where I used to go and I wanted nicer glasses. Gray & Bull take more time to look at my eyes rather than rushing me through.

M. Slatcher


I was recommended to Gray & Bull by my partner. I can now see with my sunglasses. Excellent experience, great customer service and fantastic product. An amazing retail experience.

R. Morris

A. Fry


I chose Gray & Bull because I was impressed by the service provided to my partner a year ago. An excellent experience from entering the shop, having the eye test and leaving with a new pair of glasses. A quantum leap from my experience with other opticians.

L. Fitch


I have been a customer of Gray & Bull for many years. They offer a very personalised service. Thanks for the help and advice - much appreciated.

A. Oram


I have been a client of Gray & Bull for many years, back in the day when Derek and David were at the helm, moving on to Sheeraz following their retirements and now most recently in February with the lovely optometrist. I chose Gray and Bull all those years ago as I wanted to go somewhere small and independent where you were seen by no more than perhaps two people instead of the sea of people in other practices. This, with the added bonus of a wide selection of unique and exclusive designer frames made it a perfect choice, and those reasons still remain the same today. The moment you walk into the shop you receive a lovely warm welcome from all members of staff and they make a real effort to converse whilst you are waiting to be seen. The optometrist put me at ease straight away with her friendly smile and during the actual test was pleasant and very professional.

Now, my style consultation with the lovely, bubbly but slightly bonkers Amy. Where do I begin?? I was advised that Amy would just “know” which frames would suit me and what I would like without any input from me and I must admit I was very determined to prove her wrong! However I was very quickly eating my words (sorry Amy!). She presented not only examples of suitable frames, but more importantly, rejected examples of those which simply weren’t me. I came away with a beautiful pair of Anne et Valentin glasses and received compliments from both members of staff and other clients waiting in store alike, so quite evidently she did just “know”!

The whole team are an absolute credit to Gray & Bull, everyone, Darrell, Carly and Amy went above and beyond to make sure that I was satisfied with my choice before leaving and the same applied when I went to collect them. I did have a small issue with my glasses which was nothing to do with Gray & Bull just the tolerance of my eye but it was rectified straight away after speaking to the Optical Assistant. Another lens ordered and the matter resolved, no questions, no problem. The fact that you are made to feel like an individual, that you are their main priority and they want you to be happy is almost certainly the reason I keep returning. Thank you.

Z. Rodgers


Gray & Bull are genuine specialists in optometry. My new glasses are very comfortable and the vision is extremely clear. The team at Gray & Bull allowed me to make a quick decision on my frames. A very enjoyable experience.

P. Wilson-Greatorex


I’ve been going to Gray & Bull for close to twenty years and have always been well looked after by the amazing staff. The current team there are the best ever and my annual eye exam today with the optometrist was excellent. She’s thorough and makes you very comfortable, explaining things clearly. A great addition to the team. The selection of frames is outstanding and while I wasn’t planning on a new purchase, I found some Theo’s I couldn’t resist.

A. Berman


Very personalised service and very helpful advice given. I found my experience to be great - quick and cheerful.

A. Dobson


I chose Gray & Bull because of the history of the shop. 1st class personal service from both the optometrist and Amy. I love my glasses.

D. Draycott


I chose Gray & Bull because of their choice of frames and styling options. A personalised, bespoke and friendly service.

N. Shillabeer


I chose Gray & Bull because my husband was very happy with the service. A very good experience. I always find the specs in the window look really funky.

J. Tamble


I had past experience with Gray & Bull when my son, who had congenital cataracts had his eyes tested and the optician recommended lens implants. Also, as the frames stocked are so individual, I brought my friend from London to choose her frames.

From the moment I walked into the shop I was given exemplary, seamless and individual service from all the staff. My style consultation, with the wonderfully patient Amy was second to none - Amy very quickly assimilated my style and personality (barmy!) and offered not only examples of suitable frames, but equally importantly, discarded examples of those which simply weren’t ‘me’ either because of fit and shape or because they were more middle of the road safe choices.

I was offered examples of what they considered suitable and they rose to the difficult challenge of fitting lenses to my final choice - Theo, Eye Witness double frames - a dispensing optician’s nightmare.

The optometrist gave me a very thorough eye test, explaining everything to me and reassuring me that my recent cataract operations have been wholly successful. Her professional and friendly personality certainly made me feel as if I was in very safe hands.

I was treated as an individual throughout the whole process and the team, with Darrell at the helm, clearly have a marvellous working relationship with each other, respecting each other’s individual roles but with the rare ability to place the customer (however, crazy they are!) at the very centre. I loved the individual attention; hearing about how the relationships with the various frame suppliers allow Gray & Bull to offer a bespoke service, rather than stocking the usual, ubiquitous high street frames.

A. Heeley


I found Gray & Bull on the High Street and the display and styles of frames caught my eye. Excellent service, easy to deal with and I have already recommended you to my friends. I like my glasses too.

I. Biddle


Best choice of frames at Gray & Bull, excellent experience and fantastic service.

J. Buttress


Gray & Bull stock top brands. Excellent experience and I will absolutely use Gray & Bull as my choice for opticians. Amy was very helpful. Thank you.

O. Piddubriwnyj


I chose Gray & Bull because of their choice of lenses. I had a very good experience and also a lovely coffee.

Y. James


As far from the sterile experience on offer from High Street opticians as can be imagined. Friendly, informative staff who offer help and advice when asked. No sense of being pushed into buying what I didn't want. I was allowed to take my time, impressed by the wide range of frames, and quality on offer. Eventually I decided on a pair I really liked. Satisfied, not only with my purchase, but also with the friendly service received, I returned a few months later to buy a second pair. Can't say fairer than that!

M. Coverson


I used Gray & Bull the last two times I bought my Moscot glasses, plus eye tests now and then. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff, with good facilities and a superb range of frames. Always made to feel looked after, even when dealing with someone as awkward as I can be! Kinda hope I lose my current pair so I can go back and get some new ones.. :) Warmly recommended!

N. Tolliday


I have been a customer of Gray & Bull for over 8 years. I love the service they give you in a calm, lovely building. They also have great staff.

Fantastic, friendly, attentive, expert service. Having had a truly horrendous experience with ***** I went to Gray & Bull (so glad I did!). The staff are warm and friendly, they listen well and gave really helpful advice if needed. The sight test felt relaxed and very thorough. I got to choose frames from a wide range with advice on hand too. Cannot recommend Gray & Bull highly enough. A really professional service with welcoming staff and top quality glasses.

Z. Johnston


I was recommended by my wife, C. Glazebrook. Very good experience.

D. Glazebrook


I chose Gray & Bull as I had an instinct that it would be a good service. It is by far the best opticians. All the advice given to me was excellent.

Friendly but professional. I felt more confident in staff and choice of frames compared to other opticians.

A much more personal service than the high street chains. Would definitely recommend!

I randomly popped in to Gray & Bull. I had noticed the shop before and like the established look. My experience was fab with great styling tips - thanks :-)

A. Harvey


I went in thinking I suited one particular shape of glasses, but with some really helpful consultation (which was also a lot of fun) I came out with a pair that I'd never have thought I'd suit. The two ladies that helped me were really knowledgeable but also knew what glasses were 'cool' and would suit me. I'd previously been in three shops in Nottingham that day and one thing I noticed immediately was the much wider variety of querkier glasses at Gray and Bull. Thanks to the whole team!

B. Dowse


I initially wanted a certain type of frames but after talking with the (very friendly and professional) staff I settled on a pair that looked much better than what I had in mind! The range of glasses is exceptional and service is top quality.

D. Adams


I was recommended by my G.P. I love the design of the frames. I also value the fact that the business has been running for 2 centuries. I feel I had a more accurate test at Gray & Bull than other opticians that I have been to and the staff there are very friendly and were able to answer my questions.

M. Calvo

I chose Gray & Bull as I have found previously that they do a better range of glasses than other stores in Nottingham. After waiting over an hour to gain someone's attention in a rival opticians my husband advised me to go to Gray & Bull. As soon as I walked into the shop Amy was amazing. She helped pick my glasses and was fantastic. I found the service from everyone at Gray & Bull fantastic. Amy was professional, friendly and very helpful and the other staff talked me through the lenses. I felt the service was tailored to me. I will never go anywhere else to get my glasses.​​​​​​​

I came into Gray & Bull for a browse and was very impressed by the stock. I have had loads of comments on the glasses I chose (my 12 year old grandson even gave me thumbs up). I found Gray & Bull more personal compared to other opticians and less pushy. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I was made to feel very comfortable.​​​​​​​

M. Taylor


I had walked past the shop and had been attracted to the frames various times. They have a huge variety of frames that you can't find on the high street. Wonderful experience. Lots of feedback from all the staff. Each made an effort to cater to what I was looking for. Thank you very much!​​​​​​​

A. Sargent


I like the style of the frames on offer. Great service.​​​​​​​

J. Bethell


I came to Gray & Bull as I was looking for sunglasses. I found the experience very good. Amy and the rest of the staff were very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.​​​​​​​

M. Rathmell


You get a personal service. They do not rush you through in about an hour (unlike some multiples). I was asked by a friend why I was still wearing my sunglasses inside - they were so comfy I forgot I had them on. I feel with Gray & Bull you are properly looked after by professionals all the way from testing to fitting. Gray & Bull only have the highest quality products.​​​​​​​

J. Manly


Thoroughly recommend Gray & Bull in Notts, superb customer service from start to finish.​​​​​​​

P. Handley

C. Ing


I have been a customer with Gray & Bull for many years. Their eye care & customer service is truly exceptional. Following some recent retinal eye surgery, the excellent teams at both Gray & Bull and John Flynn have helped me immensely. I would like to personally thank both Sheeraz & his team for all their time, help, patience and much needed expertise. All the staff are extremely caring and professional. I will definitely recommend Sheeraz and his whole team to all my friends and family, especially for anyone who has experienced any type of eye surgery. Many thanks to you & your team.

G. Flint


I like the shop front as it looks different with the stylish glasses on display and the range of glasses. I also like the personal service. It was very interesting to hear about the different manufacturers. The individual customer service was polite and friendly. I wasn't treated like "just another customer". Gray & Bull provided creative solutions to my short sightedness. I have not come across this at other opticians.​​​​​​​

T. Boddington


I chose Gray & Bull because a family member had a great previous experience. My experience was really great! Personal, informative and they matched the glasses to my face. Thank you!​​​​​​​

E. Thompson


I chose Gray & Bull because of their very fashionable and different spectacles / glasses frames on display in the window. I wore my Anne et Valentin glasses and my friend thought they had black frames at night. But in the daylight they're a wonderful green / blue (teal) colour - amazing. Choosing the glasses was a pleasure - as the girls in the shop were very helpful and truthful - Excellent!​​​​​​​

H. Morris


I wish to convey my thanks and gratitude to Gray & Bull. I chose to visit G&B for a routine eye sight test and the optician suspected I had a cataract in one eye. This was news to me. He recommended I see a specialist, which I did. The specialist confirmed Mr Patel's diagnosis and said that the cataract had probably been there for 10-20 years! I had previously had my eyes tested at the best known High Street opticians and with all of their technology, never spotted the problem. Thank you to Gray & Bull.​​​​​​​

M. Batty


I chose Gray & Bull for their range of frames. This is my first pair of glasses and I found the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks.

C. Watts


I love my new frames and also looking forward to picking up my new Anne et Valentin frames with tinted lenses. Now I just need some sunshine and a good book.​​​​​​​

A. Berman


My new reading glasses are wonderful especially as I thought I was easily getting by without them... what a difference they make!​​​​​​​

S. Turner


Another pair of superb glasses. Many thanks to Sheeraz Janjua and the professional team at Gray & Bull.​​​​​​​

K. Henley


I would like to thank you most sincerely for the help and kindness you gave to me after I made the mistake regarding the frames for my glasses. Yourself and your staff offered customer service and expertise that makes Gray and Bull easily the opticians of choice in Nottingham. Many thanks indeed.​​​​​​​

K. Henley


A friendly, traditional practice that puts customer care as their first thought, which is very refreshing. Superb range of frames and sunglasses. Sheeraz your team are a credit to you. Thank you.​​​​​​​

M. Saxton


Great service, much more personal than the bigger companies! Great test with Sheeraz, new frames delivered to my work address in the time promised. Perfect service.

N. Donald


Excellent opticians using up to date equipment and absolutely fabulous selection of frames. The service has always been top notch from this independent optician. Miles better than high street chains. I wouldn't go anywhere else.​​​​​​​

A. Berman


Traditional friendly practice offering first class quality service and products, with the best choice of frames I've seen in any opticians. Would recommend to anyone.​​​​​​​
