Fantastic meal before our show, I had the Bills burger cooked medium, it was delicious. My hubby had the mac an cheese which he said was very enjoyable. Down side they do not have any beer on tap. First bottle of peroni was cold. Second beer was room temperature, I guess Bills are suffering shortages too.

All ok. Nothing special. On the expensive side for microwaved food!

Late booking on a Tuesday evening. Service was good, food served timely and efficiently.

Good to see that a restaurant has the ability and correct attitude.

Restaurant was busy when we arrived, and our reserved table for 5, (upstairs) was sensibly spaced from its neighbours.

Reasonable menu choice & pleasant staff.

Nice to see the fish finger sandwich still on the menu; but we were disappointed their generous prawn cocktail starter no longer features !

Bill's is a great place to have 'brunch' with friends :)

For the second time, food arrived really quickly and couldn’t have been cooked fresh to order. Food also arrived before drinks, for the second time. Not sure we’ll be going again.

We had a delicious breakfast. We were welcomed to our table, serviced with drinks straight away whilst we chose from the menu. There were plenty of friendly staff on hand to help with our requests.

Lovely food and speedy service. Only gripe, is the waiter added an extra pound on the card machine when I paid my bill. Noticed this later.

The team are always friendly,attentive and efficient.
The food is to a high standard in flavour,mix of ingredients and presentation.
Our food arrived within minutes of ordering and we were checked on at regular intervals without being intrusive.
I love the mix of food on the menu and have tried most things so it’s hard to choose a favourite.
As a retailer I was surprised they did not try to up sell our meal with asking if we wanted starters or side dishes.
I’m sure we would have been influenced to have olives or breads and extra vegetables if they had mentioned them, so they are missing a trick there- not that we needed them, but hungry dinners can be swayed if they aren’t on a budget.
We always remove the service charge and tip directly so they get a bigger percentage of our thanks than via their wages.

Excellent food, really fresh and tasty. All staff were very attentive, although the waitress at the end was a little miffed when we pointed out she’d given us the incorrect change! But this was rectified once one of our party went up to sort it out. Would recommend and return.

Very friendly and accommodating service, mentioned that we were going to the theatre after eating at Bills, they made sure that we had time to eat whilst also not missing the start of the theatre. The food off the set menu was excellent, really tasty . We really enjoyed our whole evening which was set up perfectly by eating at Bills - thank you

The food was superb although the portions were generous. Drinks arrived promptly. We booked ahead of arriving and had the choice of several tables - we opted for downstairs, by the window.

Our server, Julia, was very attentive. Would recommend wholeheartedly.

Had booked an early table for a meal prior to going to the Everyman Theatre. We were about 15 minutes late, due to traffic issues. This was not an issue. Very pleasant and welcoming staff. Food was very good. I had a steak which was cooked perfectly (I like my steak rare). We had a person in our party with food intolerance and she was catered for very well. The only issue is the toilets are upstairs. This may be a problem for some.
The restaurant is just across the street from the theatre, so very convenient.
I would definitely recommend Bill's as part of a good evening out.

Service was very slow. Especially for drinks and order taking. Drinks sat at the bar for a while before they were brought to the table.
