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.

    Quite pricey but everything is worth it. Without this resturant I feel like my trip to cambridge would have been quite underwhelming, I would even consider just coming here for the restaurant. Incredible vibes, friendly staff, lovely decorations and just an overall amazing place to have dinner. Would recommend for any occasion, would come all the time if we lived here! A huge well done to the staff on Saturday for providing us with such an outstanding experience. Thank you for having us

    A lovely evening at Bill's in Cambridge; food was delicious and the service was second to none. A lovely evening thank you. Only downside: you've done away with the original little donuts dessert!

    Great venue. Really nice staff…. Unfortunately all our food was cold, and both burgers were ‘chewy’. It wasn’t hugely busy, so not sure that could be used as an excuse. Shame as the atmosphere is great, as is the decor. Would recommend, and assume it was an off day.

    A cheery welcome and good food for our family group of 4 yesterday. Restaurant was very busy at lunchtime - felt a bit crowded but luckily there was an empty area at the back we were able to move to. Our food was good - generous portions and interesting flavours. Would definitely go again - next time I'd aim for 2pm rather than 1.30 lunch to avoid peak time.

    Despite one of our party of 4 arriving about 15 mins late the staff were very patient. We ordered our food and wine and when our 4th guest arrived she was dealt with efficiently so that we ate together. We all chose the 2-course menu, which was delicious and excellent value, followed by 4 different coffees. We also chose an excellent bottle of South African Sav B which 3 of us enjoyed! Ambience perfect. Only complaint because it was such a cold day we were rather cold. Other than that thoroughly enjoyable.

    Cambridge branch: 17:30 Sat 15.1.22 to 19:45. Arrived 10 mins early for a 17:30 booking for 4. Table not ready, we were early, restaurant very busy but no place to wait inside. Banished for, we were told, 10 mins. Returned 15 mins later but had to wait for table to be cleared a nd sanitised. Asking for tap water for the table resulted in Bill’s normal small glass part filled, ku removed; Not the best, Waited 20 mins for waiter to take order for drinks and, by that time, our decisions on food. Starters took another 20 mins to arrive. After starters were cleared we then waited around 30 mins before, the waiter having finally noticed, we were told “your food is coming now” and, around 10 mins later, it did. One side dish orders, haloumi sliced and grilled, did not arrive until queried. We were offered a round of free drinks, which we declined. By this time we had been sat for nearly two hours and only finished our started and main course. In order to catch the last available free bus we now asked for the bill, forgoing dessert and coffee. The bill arrived including a 12.5% voluntary service charge. Needless to say this was declined. We paid and left. 1) it was very busy, but service was appallingly slapdash. 2) I can only surmise that our mains were not called or the check was lost. 3) The Halloumi side ( at £3:50) was just two slices and barely warm, when it arrived. 4) The automatic service charge. Really? And maybe you should have an option to reduce as well as add. All in all not a satisfactory experience for us or our guests.

    A really Quirky cool place to eat. All the starters were lovely but the mains were a let down. The chicken skewers were over cooked and chewy and smaller than the starters, the sea bass was soggy and the food service was very slow. 2 people had finished their mains before the rest of our group of 8 had eaten. It was cold inside, our children put their coats on. The staff however were very lovely and helpful and the place is fantastic inside.

    We received a gift card as a Christmas present and this was our first visit to Bills in Cambridge. Impressed with the ambience and staff were friendly but otherwise what a shambles! They had been let down by suppliers apparently and the menu availability was decimated. Basics such as their stone baked bread not available, no burgers at all, numerous drinks unavailable. The list of unavailable items seemed endless. The food we had was nice but overall our evening was very disappointing after all the good reports we’d had.

    We didn’t stay long enough to review good because the covid safety measures seemed inadequate. The front of house person was not wearing a mask (although I appreciate some people are exempt it seems strange in that role) and our waiter had a mask under his nose. It was busy and not that well ventilated so didn’t seem worth the risk.

    The fact that the bill can only be split up to 4 ways when paying by card (new rule apparently) is ridiculous and really poor customer service. Apart from that it was great.
