Bill’s Chichester can be found smack bang in the middle of the Butter Market (we promise we serve more than butter), in our beautiful Grade II listed building. Our walls may be old, but our menu, and ingredients, are always fresh. So, take a seat, rest your feet after a day out on the cobbles, and let Bill’s take care of you.

    Polite and friendly staff. The food was delicious. The only criticism I have is that there was no skinny milk available, a little disappointing for 11am!

    Lovely service even though we were a bit late. Great food and service. Didn’t have to explain we were going to the theatre and needed to be out promptly as it was served quickly just as we ordered by a lovely waitress and was delicious and hot too. Would go again

    Bill's, The Ivy, and Purchases are the best place to eat in Chichester. Bill's for a group or dining alone, Ivy for a change, Purchase's for a couple.

    We booked a late table for after theatre dining and although we ended up being the only people in the restaurant the staff were so accommodating and welcoming. They couldn’t do more for us. We didn’t feel rushed and the food was tasty. The decor of the restaurant is great and we’d definitely go again.

    Checked online to see if space ...there was... but as was walking to restaurant decided to not book ( we were 2 mins away). Arrived at Bill's for an ignorant man to say sorry no space. The place was virtually empty. Apparently they were expecting 80 people in shortly!! I said I had checked for space and he just said 'no sorry'. We then stood outside the restaurant and did an open table bkg at the same restaurant in a matter of seconds and went back through the door. It was totally ridiculous. James turned away about 4 families whilst we sat in a near empty restaurant.....so unimpressed with him and his attitude. Loved the rest of staff and the food. James...you are an idiot with too much so called power!!!

    Bill’s in Chichester has a very nice vibe; always quite busy. The decor is great and our service was very friendly, efficient and helpful. At the price, the food (breakfast/brunch dishes) was very affordable and tasty. I can recommend Bill’s as a well-run eatery and is especially good for groups of friends and families to meet during the day.

    We have enjoyed going to Bills for many years We enjoy the setting ambience and generally the food However, over the last few visits we have seen a deterioration in the food in particular The salad was very poor, leaves almost limp very limited in interest and quantity. The chicken was cold and indifferent. We have always enjoyed the fish pie however, it has reduced in size by about a third and it was overcooked. We have decided that this experience was so poor that we are reluctant to visit somewhere we have enjoyed in the past.

    We enjoyed the meal before a theatre visit. My burger was dry and no bacon, but was replaced and was then excellent. We liked desserts, and the wine and beer was not too expensive. Overall we are happy to recommend.

    My wife and me have visited this "Bill's " before, we were impressed with the welcome and service we received,that we have continued to use this restaurant. We can say that our experience today was as impressive as our first visit. The quality of the food and extensive menu choices is fantastic. The welcome and kindness shown us by the staff was, as always, very professional and the food was presented professionally and expedited in timely manner. The attention to detail, efficiency of service, proves that good training and good staff recruitment pays dividends. We do and will continue to select this "Bill's" restaurant as preference when in Chichester. P.S. The coffee is great too.

    Excellent evening in every way. Warm welcome, attentive service and quick delivery of delicious nosh. I had fish pie and salad, my sister had a classic burger and chips. The desserts were equally super - salted caramel ice cream and a mini pot. Very friendly but not intrusive Ukrainian waitress. Looking forward to a return visit.

    Last minute decision to go out for dinner. Very friendly welcome, lovely waitress who was chatty and friendly. Disappointed with the menu. It's been a while since we've been but the menu has gone all "messed up". Loads of food with chillis, grains, spicy and lots of names of things that are not what we used to see in 'normal' menus. Always burgers and a steak but I don't eat those. I ended up eating a side order and my partner had 2 starters. We like Bills but unless the menu changes, we won't go again.
