We had a lovely experience.
Our waitress were a young irish lady from Limerick and she was very helpful and knowledgable.
The food was very good and we would definitely go back to a Bill's restaurant again.

I took my daughter to Bills for our lunch, she had never been to Bills before- and was really positive about the place, staff, menu and surroundings.
My daughter has a severe nut allergy and the staff and chefs were extremely attentive to her needs and safety.
Her plates came out served by a waiter who also served her for her dessert- each dish was individually labelled allergy. Very important to my daughter and very attentive by the chefs and staff.

Lovely food, friendly service.

Only improvement would be the coffee could have been warmer.

You know what to expect at Bills. Food is decent, prices too - there was a slight error with my order but with masks and all that understandable and didn't detract from the meal, which was our last family meal out before Lockdown2!

Food was really amazing! The bills ginger beer is incredibly “gingery” so it was a bit strong, the glasses did have a few marks on them but nothing to make a fuss about. Service was good. Price is fair. The hand sanitiser in the large dispensers smells odd and not very nice.
The banoffee donuts were absolutely incredible and I will be visiting bills again just for them.

Whilst the food and service were good I would not recommend anyone visiting who is worried about social distancing...there wasn’t any. The tables were much too close together and the staff were not monitoring customers who squeezed close by other tables.

Absolutely no Covid measures in place except masked staff and hand sanitizer. No one-way systems, tables packed closely and fully booked out, no obvious measures to keep bathrooms clean. Genuinely really unsettling in these times. Small independents doing this much better.

We went for breakfast and it was so good that we went back again the following day! Scrambled eggs were excellent and the service was some of the best we’ve ever had - the staff were all so friendly and efficient :)

Very friendly atmosphere, despite it being a huge chain you really do feel your visiting a family run restaurant. Excellent service, high standard food and a lovely atmosphere, would recommend going for dinner here if u happen to stay in bath

Excellent food as always but appears very little social distancing measures at all. Seating still very close to other tables don’t appear to have reduced the numbers at all.

No greeting for a good ten mins, then first response was to move aside as someone had a booking 5 mins before ours. Awful table position at back of restaurant. Stress of working under the Covid restrictions really affecting the staff, all niceties gone and very formal interactions. We only stayed half an hour and think that a standard 12.5% service charge was certainly not deserved. I won’t be returning until after restrictions lifted as Bills not able to balance the necessary changes and maintain customer service. Real shame

Food was brilliant. Price was very reasonable. Atmosphere was great. The service was good when we were attended too. Only downside was that we had to wait 20 mins + for our desert. Quite a long time in my opinion. Other than that a good experience!

The food was hot, tasty and first class. It and great value and the venue comfortable and welcoming.
The staff were brilliant and very child friendly. We had two junior school boys with us and they were made to feel important and welcomed customers.

One minor comment/observation. We had booked a table, arrived at the allotted time, but the (small) queue outside included booked and non-booked customers. The 'one out one in' procedure, while understandable under the current restrictions, meant that we had to wait 15 minutes outside in the rain before being show to our table 15 mins late.
Perhaps signs outside and two queues?

This doesn't take away any of the positives.

I reserved a table and didn’t have to wait.
The service was very smooth and we didn’t have to wait very long for the food to arrive. The food was delicious.
The ambience was very good.
There were rather a lot of young children but it was half term.

Lovely staff and food. Booked ahead and visited on my own. I still felt I had the same experience as other diners (something that isn’t always the case when you book to dine for one). Good Coronavirus measured in place.

Social distance did not appear to happen as every table was in use. Food was nice but very expensive for everyday dining, nothing stood out as anymore than average food.

Staff were very friendly but appeared a little disorganised and service was either too fast or a long time lapse, no staff dedicated to a table area.

Was my first visit to Bills and not sure I would return due to the cost along with service added without asking first, not a usual thing for a standard food place.

Told at the end of the meal that they have stopped accepting blue light card discount. Disappointed. Food was not great. Halloumi warm not grilled and crab cakes had shell in. Mentioned to waitress who said nothing. Usually Bills is a hot but this one was a miss
