Menu was varied, food pretty good but the service was very poor. Slow and difficult to get any attention. Would put me off revisiting myself or recommending particular as a service charge is included on the bill.

Food was good and tasty but nothing you wouldn’t find anywhere else. Service was quite slow even when not to busy.

Starters arrived with mains? Calamari was overcooked and tough. Tortilla's almost burnt? The waitor did not ask if everything was okay until plates cleared and did not apologise? Poor.

Although busy and rather noisy when we arrived, we were greeted at the door and taken to our table. We had a trainee waiter who was attentive and helpful, although he did ask us how we wanted our halloumi burger cooked...! We had to point out that it could just be cooked! The food was nice, although a small amount of garnish would have made the plate look more attractive. It looked rather empty with a burger and a pot of chips.

Efficient service from the start. No hanging around. The staff were very professional and polite. Our food was excellent and didn’t take long to arrive. Clean facilities. I’ve been there before and will definitely go again.

Ordered gluten free sirloin to be cooked medium. It arrived well done and tomatoes were missing. Had to ask for tomatoes which arrived half way through the meal.
No puddings available for coeliac sufferers only coconut icecream available...poor in this day and age! Wont be returning sadly as chairs were comfortable lol

Good choice of food which was tasty and well presented. Only quibble in regard to the food was the fish pie was over cooked and the dark brown crumble rather off putting. When serving some food was dropped onto my guest, but there was no apology and it was not cleared from the floor.
Good ambience

The food wasn’t bad, the waiter who took our order was lovely but when we had finished the food & didn’t want pudding we were made to feel like we needed to leave & be rushed out. This wasn’t by the same person that served us.
I understand it was Cheltenham Races & it was a very busy day, there was a long queue awaiting outside but we’d booked our table for 5pm, it clearly states there was 1 hour 30 time slot for us.

Great as always except for the optional service charge, I would have been happy to give a £10 tip, Bill's loss!! Too many restaurants impose this, I will reconsider Bill's in the future, a great shame!!

Wrong food arrived and when it did arrive correct it was poor value and didn’t taste good. No one asked if we’d like another drink ! Lighting was way to bright felt more like you were in a school canteen. Will not be rushing back.

The food and service were very good. The experience was somewhat spoiled by the 12.5% service charge, which is automatically applied. It was never pointed out that this was optional. Poor practice I think.

The quality of food on the set menu was great. I did feel that the wine was quite expensive. We had a bottle and got £10 off, however it was still an £18 bottle of wine.

We enjoyed Bill's in Cheltenham. The atmosphere was great, service prompt and friendly, yummy food and the children loved the burger special and the pink lemonade.
