A very enjoyable evening spent meeting up with friends. The restaurant was very busy….always a good sign!! Lovely ambience…a lovely buzz! Our server was very attentive but not obtrusive. The food was of a good quality. Will go back!

Lovely restaurant and the waitress went above and beyond running around the restaurant to find pen and paper for my kids to do drawings while waiting for our food which was pointless as my food arrived within 10mins of me ordering it which is a plus. Defo would recommend bills to any friends and family 5stars.

Excellent central location by the Abbey. Good food, for a reasonable price. We started with breakfast, and went back later for dinner also. Had a lovely time.

Toilet set up was a little weird, with ladies and gents toilet cubicles in one room. Washing hands in a shared area was awkward, for both sexes!!??

Good was excellent I would have enjoyed the fish pie more if it had scallops rather than prawns but was truly exceptional I loved it
My wife is vegan and felt that the menu choice was rather restricted to what choice she had 👍👍👍👍👍

What a lovely place. Had a birthday voucher from my daughter, which turned out to be an inspired gift. Everything positive about this place. The customer service was great and all the staff were happy, friendly,cheerful and well trained. Will certainly visit again and will let my friends know where they can dine with confidence.

Tried to book a table of 16 online. Couldn’t. Got told to call, so did and the best they could do was another date. I said that i couldn’t do that as it was our wedding and i suggested other times or even breaking the table into 2. I never got an email back so i booked 2 tables of 8. When i got there, your hostess took an age to seat us and then complained that we should’ve booked a table of 16, which is exactly what i wanted to do.

Food was average.

Really disappointing, food pretty expensive for such a small portion, we had chicken skewers with wild rice & that was literally all you got, you have to pay extra for fries!
They added a £5 surcharge to the bill which we felt wasn’t deserved so didn’t pay it as the service was nothing special at all and neither was the food, very disappointing

Such an amazing dinner out with a friend. My 6 month old had to come along with us as well. The staff were really accommodating and welcoming with giving her cuddles and even cutting up small bits of strawberry for her. He good and drinks were amazing. We were tempted to go back the next day for lunch!

I usually love Bill’s but it was so busy and the kitchen clearly couldn’t manage. Breakfast took a long time to arrive and when it did, value was poor. No butter with toast (which then took 20mins to arrive after asking, cold food and generally small/poor quality.

Food was ok, music was loud, included service charge without asking, tables felt a bit close together - felt like we were dining with other groups even though we were on our own.

I can’t fault the service, food and atmosphere at Bill’s! The menu is so varied, with lots of different options that will suit many appetites. All of the waiting staff were friendly and attentive (In particular Charlie!). We highly recommend the fish pie/ minute steak, and the carrot cake doughnuts/ flower pot cheesecake , which were delicious. 10/10 we’ll definitely visit again! Thank you for a lovely evening.

Arrived early for booking but helpfully seated in excellent alcove where we could talk to our friends we had not seen for two years . Friendly efficient well paced service throughout, given time to look at menu needed as busy catching up! Food excellent served in sensible amounts. Wine very good with good choices. Great ambiance and setting for what turned out something of a special occasion.

I would best describe Bills as tired, the menu needs to be refreshed, the staff need motivation. It was poor value for money and including a 12.5% service charge was liberty considering the level of the service provided.

They left 2 items off of his breakfast, 1 item off of my breakfast and no jam with the toast! Pretty ropey service although they did try to sort it out. Also my soon walked past the kitchen to use the toilet and heard obscene bad language from the staff as the door was held open. Usually impressed with Bills but not on this occasion

Food and staff were great but the music was a little loud which resulted in communicating an incorrect order. Easily remedied by staff. Also the lights are a little dim which made it quite hard to read the menu! Otherwise had a fabulous time and would definitely visit again!

A pleasant place to have breakfast (which is located right in the city centre). On a 2 day visit to Bath we initially booked in for our first morning to try it and ended up returning the following morning!

It was just ok, not value for money and one member of staff clearly didn’t want to be there!
