Everything about this place is wrong. The food was very poor, the wine was sour and the service was ad hoc. I came here before a cinema night and quite frankly I wish I had opted for my local take away.

Venue was very busy, seemed a bit much for the staff to handle as glasses of water were forgotten on numerous occasions when asked for.

Food was fair, pretty standard pub grub - overpriced for what you get. Burgers and chicken skewer starter were dry and mediocre.

We had a great time at Bill’s, for my friends birthday. However when we first payed they did over charge us for an extra bottle of wine.
They did sort this out quickly for us though, and overall we had a great time :)

The food was lovely and loads of it. The service was excellent and it wasn't that busy but we did go at 5.15 on a Tuesday evening.

Went for breakfast, plenty of choice on menu.
It was busy and one area of restaurant was very noisy and we were offered a table away from that area.
Order was taken quickly and we didn’t wait long for food to arrive.
Food was hot and tasty.

The chicken burger was very tasteless and didn’t have a lot of flavour.
The vegan wings in the starters were absolutely incredible, I wish there was more of it.

Chose the 3 stack pancakes with berries and bills garden plate. Both were very tasty, only criticism I have is that there is barely enough fruit with the pancakes. They are quite big and after eating one and a half I had no fruit left, no syrup which left the pancakes tasting quite dry. Didn’t see any staff to ask if I could get any additional fruit at this point.The bills garden plate was excellent as always.

Generally very good, although one staff member was pretty much just doing their job with no real customer care and was no time between courses, was in and out of the restaurant within the hour and this was three courses !!

I had the fish pie and was extremely disappointed, it contained minimal fish and when reported to my server they advised they would report to chef, but no attempt was made to rectify. This experience has made me reconsider my long standing patronisem of Bills and I will not be back. There was further confusion with my Blue light discount, I was asked for a code which has never been part of the Blue light process, so further training may be needed for your staff.

Choices were fairly limited but overall food was very good. Service was very good but my first choice of drink was not available. We were seated near door and every time door opened we were greeted with a cold draught. Three of us sat down to eat and every meal was enjoyed and servings were good. The welcome we received was good and overall we felt it was good value for money

My family and I regularly eat at your resturant.
We have found the last few times although good, the service is so slow and waiting long times for drinks and food even though the restaurant was quiet. Staff are friendly and obliging but slow.
That’s is the only thing I would say is an issue.
Thank you

Awful customer service - asked for a garden breakfast with some items swapped out and replaced but they charged me extra for each item added in? 9.95 on the menu but was charged approx £15?

Serloin steak was good but peppercorn sauce was a bit bland. We requested a window seat and managed to get one. Magerita cocktail was too spicy to drink, tasted of curry powder but staff gladly changed it when we pointed it out. Would definitely go again

Food was very disappointing, bland to say the least. My husbands steak was utterly raw (he likes medium rare to rare) so we had it sent back to the kitchen and instead of replacing the steak for fresh, it was re cooked it and placed it back on the plate…. Yuck

Only positive point would be the staff. They were very attentive and most helpful.

Unfortunately we won’t be returning ever as the food was of very poor quality and very over priced.
Bills is all about big bills 🤷🏻‍♀️

Can't fault the welcome, the staff, the service, the choice of food, the standard of food and the venue. The downside was a large table of adults with children who were allowed to shout and run around. This was after 7pm and a bit annoying. I don't suppose it is easy for staff to be able to sort this.
