Staff making sure everything was ok
There ambience, cleanliness and service was great but unfortunately the food was not great.
Lovely staff, very attentive. Not pushy helped with my patterner's allergies
Food a bit bland. No effort made for birthdays despite mentioning: very quiet so atmosphere not great.
we booked for 7 of us and had an absolutely lovely meal for our son's 19th birthday. food was delicious, service was really friendly and nothing was too much trouble! will definitely be back
Really friendly staff, wide ranging and quirky menu, good coffee, lots of flavour especially in the truffle fries, fish pie and salsa & avocado salad. Desserts were brilliant too!
Welcome was great. The restaurant looks very nice. The menu choice was good ,drinks especially were impressive for non alcoholic options. We ordered the fish pie the falafel salad and the steak and eggs. The fish pie was good the falafel salad was pretty poor and tasteless. The steak and eggs was particularly disappointing we have had this dish at other Bills and it had always been good but on this occasion the steak smelt and tasted liverish. They did take it off the bill but as an experience two out of the three meals were not good.
Went for breakfast nice setting and good service but breakfast bit overpriced and under delivered for me
Egg carried on cooking under the heat lamp I guess. Personally I wouldn't have had streaky bacon out of choice but overall it was fine.
Smoothies a little pricey for the size and what they were.
Pancakes delicious next time put extra syrup on plate please 😊
Served well and staff attentive. Loved the look of bills. Nice trip out for us knackered parents who managed to get rid of the kids for breakfast.
Very good. Good choices. Intolerance friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
Good service, food was of good quality. We sat by the kitchen pass it was quite loud from music in the kitchen.
Would go again but request to be seated elsewhere.
A great venue with good service. However staff did not wear face coverings which I would have preferred
Excellent as always. Bills Brunch went down very well, excellent sausages!
The front of house staff were amazing
We visited 19th July and the lady who greeted us was amazing
Thank you for making a birthday very special
Usual standard of quality food and great service. Always a great place to eat.
Staff friendly and super quick ordering.attentive and not invasive
Great service- was served by James who was very attentive and great. Thanks!
We received a warm welcome. All COVID19 precautions were taken. The drinks order was taken with the food it all arrived at the right temperature and as ordered.
The food was tasty although for the price the portions are on the small side. The staff were attentive, although not overly so. I do find the recommendation of the most expensive things on the menu a little disingenuous when there is a 12.5 % service charge.
However, all in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. I would certainly return.
Food disgusting mushy and cold. However the service was excellent couldn’t fault the waitress.
Service was impeccable - food good but bit overpriced
Lovely restaurant and food, the service is always excellent.
"Free cocktail" for the football offer excludes vegetarians, as both items that have to be ordered to qualify are meat.
The restaurant was very busy but the staff were happy, friendly and helpful. They worked very hard the whole time we were there and the service and level of cleanliness was very good.
Really nice food good social distancing eggs cooked petfectly
Staff service was good, but the pricing was a bit high in relation to the portion sizing/quality of food.
Ordered the bills brunch. Everything was nice apart from the sausages they were over cooked and tasted like mush. Also the butter for the toast always comes out hard which makes it difficult to spread
Very nice restaurant and food.staff very friendly
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Bill's. The food and staff were great. I had asked for a table by a window which they provided but it was right by the bar which was very noisy so we moved to a booth which was perfect. The waitresses were so helpful and pleasant.
Fantastic food, staff were very friendly, will definitely be back!
First visit after lockdown. Good food, but missed some old menu choices - especially in the hot drinks department. If you have a breakfast expect American style bacon (like crisps) - which isn't to my personal taste. Staff friendly and helpful, and service was good. I'd probably go back in the future, but try the lunch options.
A nice place to eat with friendly staff and good service.
I haven’t been to Bill’s before but will certainly be returning following the fantastic lunch I enjoyed on Monday.
The raw seared tuna starter was amazing with the tuna literally melting in my mouth.
This was followed by the Mojo Marinated Chicken Skewers which were absolutely gorgeous and moist.
A fantastic lunch at a great price - what more could you ask for!
Two of the meals were cold when served and had to be returned. This left the two diners waiting for their food whilst the rest of us already had ours and had to start eating to prevent our own going cold.
No checking back to see if we were OK etc.
Service was very slow, even for drinks, when the restaurant was almost empty so hardly too busy...
Huge service charge added which we had to ask to be removed since we were not prepared to pay 12.5% service after the issues we had experienced...
Had the chicken Caesar salad at £12+. Chicken hard and over cooked, very poor value for money.
Have missed getting out to our favourite breakfast place and it did not let me down. Always great food and service.
Friendly staff lovely food great atmosphere
Would definitely recommend
The food left my family ill the next day and only left a tip because we didint want to wait for the change
Bill’s rarely lets you down. The staff were helpful, the cold drinks were cold, and the fish finger sandwich was a real doozy. Nice atmosphere, too. If you’re in Braintree Village, do yourself a favour and grab a bite here. Your stomach will thank you for it later.
Friendly staff, excellent service, food always cooked to perfection. Perfect end to a good morning shopping
Food was nt as good as usual hardly any adocado on my veggi breakfast toast and the black pudding on my friend full English was so over cooked it was like a crisp very disappointing .
