Only downfall in experience was being told no tables for 30-45 minutes and to come back and see after that time… we left the restaurant at around 11:20, decided might be best to secure a table via the app for the time suggested but ended up booking a table for 5 minutes later at 11:30.

Service was lovely and food was delicious. Would recommend.

Service slow, so we skipped deserts.
The mustard requested for the steak never arrived, although the ketchup for the fries did.

The service was a little slow but it was very busy, I think the staff could of kept us update on our order as we had to chase it up. Also we kept having to ask for sugar there could of been a bowl full of the sachets. they seemed to be precious about it for no reason.

My husband and daughter really enjoyed their steak and eggs and buttermilk chicken burger, but unfortunately I didn’t enjoy my fish finger sandwich, the fish was over cooked and the bread was burnt! I don’t think it’s a good idea to have dry toasted bread with dry breaded fish anyway. There was hardly any tartar sauce in it to moisten it either. I did go for a dessert and it was gorgeous, the cranberry bread and butter pudding so I was thankful for that.

Great service and food but super noisy, and tables were too close together. We were seated by the bar and the disabled loo and at one point saw a bucket full of uneaten food being carried past

We had a fab time but it was amazingly so busy. But that’s to be expected. We chose Bath as it was a convenient location for us from Cheltenham and put friend from Southampton.

Wish we had asked the name of our server. Absolutely brilliant service and very friendly. They were so busy and food was a bit slower than usual she said but she kept us informed and topped us up with tea and tbh the food didn’t really take that long and when it came it was lovely. Well done Bills in Bath - we’ll be back again and again x

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.

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.
