    The staff was wonderful and the food was tasty. It certainly didn’t feel like a chain restaurant experience. I’ll definitely be on the look out for Bill’s restaurant on my next trip to the UK.

    A most enjoyable day out with the family and lunch at Bill's. The service was really good and the food up to their high standards catering for adults and children not to forget the dog! A very friendly welcome and attention without feeling rushed. We will certainly come again

    Very nice post theatre meal. 3 families and we’d asked for the children to be seated separately but nearby as they’re now 10 & 11. Great service and the kids loved being a bit independent. Food was great too!

    We were all very disappointed by the experience we had on our visit especially with menu food choices as they had been totally changed since our booking was made on line. No vegetables included in most choices-these were optional sides so we felt the prices had increased but the quality of the food and choices had not! The restaurant was very quiet as not many people were there at all (maybe reflecting the menu change?) Therefore there was no lovely ambience previously experienced. However the service given was good by the young lad serving us but we were a bit taken aback that 12.5% service charge was automatically added to the bill. We prefer to reward directly to the staff if they have provided good service to us. I do hope this charge is passed on to the waiting staff and not swallowed up into the company accounts. We will definitely not recommend this venue and not return in the near future unless things drastically change.

    The food has deteriorated dramatically since we last visited. The children’s chicken meal was hardly edible. Very dry and disappointing. The adult main meals were fine, but uninteresting compared to previous offerings. Everything seemed like it has been under the lights for a long time. We have been frequent visitors but will now find elsewhere to eat when visiting Bury with the children. A shame.

    The food was very good, lack of vegetables with the steaks, a handful of cress didn’t really do it. There are plenty of fresh vegetables available, would have made a good meal a perfect meal. Apart from that, everything was ok x

    Lovely food, reasonable price, good service. Shame they automatically add 12.5% to the bill as optional service charge even though only 3 of us. We nearly paid a tip on top of this as we didn’t notice. Bit sneaky.

    A frequent visitor to Bills, but was very disappointed with the change of menu. There was nothing that appealed to us, a lot of the old favourites not on menu. Will not be returning any time soon.

    The service was good unfortunately the main was a let down was my girlfriends burger was burnt which spoilt a nice meal and the price for the quality of the food seems excessive. I don’t think we will be coming back

    It took us a long time to be shown to our table and then even longer for anyone to take our drinks order. Food also took a long time to arrive and we had 3 small children so not ideal! Food was terrible and looked like it had been stuck under a hot plate for a long time!

    A really delicious lunch. The staff were brilliant. We asked for an earlier lunch than the later one we had already booked and this was no problem. I asked for a booth and they gave me a seat that was even better. Nothing was a problem. Thank you for making my mother day lunch special.

    Disappointed that the extensive general menu had been replaced by a 'Mothers Day' menu (on the Saturday prior) with limited menu choices instead. Over priced food for the quality and choice served. Request for a quiet table in the corner but was placed next to a staff order point/till which when service died down became a meeting point for staff to chat whilst trying to eat and enjoy a private conversation. Service had died down by the time we wanted dessert and staff breaks with their own food service seemed to take precedence - a shame as the staff were generally welcoming and engaged. Will probably return when menu is more extensive despite issues but will perhaps be more conscious of seating allocations and request move if not happy

    Had a very pleasant lunch. I wasn't expecting the Mother's Day menu on the Saturday and as such it was different to the normal lunch menu I'd researched prior to the visit.

    What a disappointment. We’d booked having been to the Tunbridge Wells Bills. The food was average, but my Sweet potato fries were delicious, I opted for Avocado and eggs, I’d asked to not have the Sourdough and without asking the plate came out with a pile of cherry tomatoes and a rather bitter dressing. My fellow diners had a mixed response to their food. The Sea Bass was over cooked and small, the potatoes were nice. The Vegan Dirty Burger was probably bought in rather than Chef made. The breaded chicken was OK but the fries did not come with the mains, so half the chicken was gone before they fries arrived. The coffee was delicious and the Loos were fresh and clean.

    We were seated straight away, even though we were early. Staff very attentive and courteous. Food was delicious, and a lot of it. I asked to take half of it away with me and was provided with a cardboard container and a paper bag. Was still very tasty when I ate it later.
