Top tags:

There’s a special feel to Bill’s Cambridge restaurant. Tucked away on a small back street, the restaurant opens up like a Tardis once you step inside, with a bar, a library, a big open dining area and a private dining space. Newly refurbished, expect vibrant colour, cosy corners and plenty of quirk. Bill’s is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between.

    Food was great, service was slow given how many staff there were compared to customers. Toilets needed some attention, not very clean and half were out of order.

    Very good food and lovely dining experience.. service was slow and sporadic though.. waited 45 minutes for our mains and as we were informed our booking was for 2 hours only , waiting 45 minutes for our main was a bit much. But as I said, food was great.. next time will try on a weekday, not a Saturday.

    Waited almost 30 minutes for food. The restaurant was full very noisy people moving everywhere very stressful and not an enjoyable moment. You just want to eat and leave. The food was tasteless and the fresh juices not fresh. A « freshly pressed orange juice » definitely from bottle… No service in the restaurant and no wifi access (it exists but doesn’t work).

    Sadly they didn't have my meal of choice, but they handled it well. The restaurant was quite cold, even though we were not sat by the door. I understand they could have increased the ventilation for COVID reasons, which I support, but I would have brought a jumper if I'd known!

    Had a lovely meal with my family, all had something different and were very happy. I had the chicken skewers and they were very tasty but I was rathe jealous of my husband who had the fish finger sandwich which looked amazing and he said it was yummy.

    Service left a lot to be desired. Very slow to clear tables. Staff did not seem very aware of customers needs at all. I also requested a high chair when I booked online which wasn’t provided, it also wasn’t offered when I arrived with my 1 yr old. I had to ask for it when we were asked for drinks 10mins later. Was twice told the breakfast menu was the child menu before they realised it was the wrong menu. On the bright side the food was nice although our side of beans for my child’s meal was forgotten & had to be brought up separately. Overall, go somewhere else.

    We were greeted nicely and allocated to our booked table. Initially, we weren’t given all the menus and had to ask. The food was ordered and then I was told I couldn’t swap my mash for fries on the set menu, despite having done so in this restaurant many times. When I expressed my dismay, the manager intervened and I was reassured I could have what I wanted. The first two courses were excellent. It was also great, to have a proper choice of pudding for a non-chocolate lover! I really enjoyed the peach and coconut sundae. Not everyone likes chocolate. Thanks for the new choice. Then we got the bill and they’d charged full price fir the wine. We had discussed it with the waitress who ordered it for us and had been told we would get £10 off as it was over £25. The matter was put right and the bill was then correct. Thank you.

    We each ordered Bill's fish pie. Although there was ample fish in pie, the pie was quite watery, with very thin layer of potato topping. The pie was not that flavoursom. I generally judge food on the basis of whether it's better than I can do at home. It this case, i could have done better

    Great service from start to finish. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were served very efficiently and we opted for the 2 course set menu for lunch. Food was hot and really tasty - we all had the chargrilled chicken followed by the chocolate and salted caramel tart which was totally delicious. Fantastic value and we would have no hesitation in recommending to friends & family.

    Service was poor. We were given the wrong menus to start with and then the waitress made out as if it was somehow not her error. The food was not great. The sirloin steak was stringy and tough. The mushroom sauce was watery. We then had coffees at the end and these came to the table lukewarm. Not great overall.

    Our waiter, a young man from Brazil, was charming and efficient. His customer service skills are first class. Food was good. We asked for, and were given, a table in a slightly quieter part of the restaurant. Our only issue was that many of the waiting staff were either not wearing facemasks or were wearing them incorrectly. Given that they came very close to us while taking our order and serving, we felt quite uncomfortable.

    Regular diner at Bills - always impressed by friendly, efficient service, which is why I was furious to discover that the 12.5 % tip for service that is on the bill and which I always give, does not go to the staff. What on earth is it for then? I will take cash for tips in future, but this feels both greedy and under underhand on the part of the company.
