Casual
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.

Came here on Christmas Eve and the service was excellent. Staff were excellent and always deserve recognition for working over the holiday period as I imagine it can be tough, especially how this year has gone. Nevertheless very helpful and very efficient,food of course being wonderful. A memorable experience just before this year ends in tiers.

My boys love Bill’s and they do good food. The service is good, the ambience is good and you are never let down. I do however think it is overpriced and the staff don’t get to keep all their tips if you pay by card.
We go for social birthday occasions and for general eating out avoid here as I’m not a huge fan of chain restaurants. Nothing to fault just not for me.

Lovely place for breakfast. We used to go here regularly. But £60 for 2 adults & 2 kids meals is ridiculous. I only had porridge !

Terrible food . Not the normal Bills standard. Sweet potatoes were stale. Been there a few times and food always disappointing.

Lovely food and ambience. Great value festive menu. One waitress was a little dismissive and didn't make eye contact...which is hard when wearing a mask!!!... but everybody else was superb.

Excellent seasonal menu at reduced prices. Very generous portion of crumble, beautifully resented and served with vanilla custard and ice cream. Great end to a nice meal

It was nice, I usually take my children here the first day of the Xmas holidays for brunch as a Xmas treat. Our food was cold but I didn't want to complain with people around and spoiling it for my children. Not really how it should be done but for the sake of a nice time with them that is what I did.
Stone cold poached eggs and hollandaise sauce is not a pleasant meal...
Staff were lovely though and very polite, I always love coming to Bills. This time it wasn't quite up there though.

Service was extremely slow considering the place was so, so quiet. I do not like the service charge that they add to your bill either, that should be optional - after all, we definitely don't think a tip of that kind was warranted.
Food was good and staff were friendly.

Absolutely wonderful, met my daughter and her boyfriend to celebrate her birthday. Food was amazing and I could have eaten the chicken dumplings 🥟 all day! Service was excellent and our server was very friendly and helpful. My daughter even had a complimentary ‘birthday’ dessert - thank you for a great experience 🙂

Portion size has reduced in recent months, and local establishments offer as good, if not better value now.

Lovely place, warm greeting and professional service. Just think I picked a duff dish, chicken skewers were very dry and almost tasteless. Everything else from three courses was great

Took forever for our order to be taken. Drinks came second after starter. Restaurant rammed full and staff stomped around the place brushing passed us and hitting our elbows. Food came out stone cold. We complained and 2nd time it came it was hot but 0 flavour .. so bland. Couldn’t wait to get out of there. No compensation or offer of a free drink or anything for bringing out cold food. Wont be going back.

Food was great, although our order was taken twice as the first one was forgotten, was there over anhour before anything arrived. Drinks took a long time to arrive too. When ordered an alcoholic drink... it was completely watered down and had no taste
