It wasn’t the best evening. We are used to Bills in London which have a great vibe and the food is always delicious.
My daughters food arrived cold and then they heated it up (in microwave!) as still cold at the bottom and middle! My main was quite dry and not what we are used to at Bills. Also the hot chocolate brownie dessert also was cold. The Rose wine was not great, with only one option, you would think it would have been nice. They did deduct the kids meals, but overall very disappointing And wouldn’t go back there in a hurry!

We really enjoyed the excellent service, tasty food, and the covid safe environment at Bill's last Sunday. We had a couple of deliciouse starters - chicken bites and chicken skewers. Both were delicious. We then had the Crab Cakes for mains. Again, outstanding. The staff were polite, friendly and smiley (yes, we could see it in their eyes) from the moment we stepped through the door. Will be visiting again next time we're in Brighton.

Excellent value with 50% off menu through October...but drinks seemed a bit more expensive? Great setting as usual, and very friendly, masked waitress service. Their masks were thick ones, making it hard to hear them!

Really enjoyable meal. Excellent value for money on their special Monday to Wednesday deal. We have already recommended it to friends. The only minor quibble was about the rhubarb crumble. The topping should be more substantial and the custard, although brilliant, was a little on the meagre side.

We had the set menu, I loved the risotto and all of us enjoyed our meals. The tables were reassuringly well spaced.

4 of us came for my 4-yr old granddaughter's birthday lunch at Bill's, Brighton
Everything was excellent and she really enjoyed herself.
If I could make a suggestion - bring out the child's meal or some breadsticks or something, for a child a bit sooner.
Big hit: the Bill's Flowerpot for dessert. When I saw this on the menu, I thought great. But maybe it's too big?
No, it's child-size and perfect. The flowerpot is made of chocolate. All the other parts are delicious: passionfruit cheesecake, edible flower, strawberries, etc. Sorry I didn't order one as well for my partner and I ! Now my grandson wants to come for lunch, so he can have one...
Bill's: please don't ever take it off the menu !!! Thank you.
We know that when we book at Bill's we're never disappointed. The food is always good, and the service is always friendly.
Thank you.

Brighton’s Bills’ is by far the best. Why it top trumps the other restaurants is purely down to the service and how approachable the staff are here. Nothing is too much trouble and they’re all so kind.

When we arrived a couple of waitresses walked past us and didn’t acknowledge us or say hello even. The food was really bad especially given the price. My kids who normally eat everything barely touched their sausage and mash. My halo yum burger was beyond average.
The toilets were disgusting and so smelly. Honestly never going back!

Too many tables for social distancing. Slow service. When the food finally arrived the toast was cold and chewy and the porridge was solid and did not taste good.
Staff were very polite and friendly and explained that something had delayed the food but it was still a long wait in a busy, non covid secure area.

Great food but not great service. Would of had more drinks and food but once the mains were cleared we were just left for so long that we ended up having to put our coats on to get attention for a bill then another 10 -15 min wait to pay. So frustrating as the food we had was great.
