Nice venue with plenty of alternative seating locations. Varied menu, pleasant staff, good service. Personally we do not like the 12.5% service charge added automatically to the total and would prefer to tip at our discretion.

I love Bills in Chichester. The atmosphere is second to none. The food is consistently good. Particularly enjoyed my Gin-gles cocktail on Friday. The service was excellent and made a nice evening first class. Thank you. Looking forward to returning very soon. Merry Christmas 🎄

Eaten here many times but totally gone downhill. A quiet Tuesday evening with plenty of staff we were left waiting for drinks, food was cold and we had to get up to ask for our own bill as staff were chatting.

Had a shared plate which was very good and enough for lunch for two of us. Service friendly and efficient. Like the Chichester restaurant, has a good industrial feel.

Bill’s was fairly quiet when we were there (pre-theatre).
Service was excellent, food was very good.
Only very minor issue was that the espresso could have been hotter (didn’t mention at the time as we wanted to get on).
Overall I’d recommend.

My lunch was lovely and my only disappointment is the one teabag in a huge teapot of water meant the tea was very weak no matter how much I stirred it or left it to stand. Great to have a big pot of tea but wasted as so weak.

Excellent service all the staff attentive and helpful. Noise level high due to industrial decor of metal and wood looks nice but a hearing nightmare if you have a sensory disability. We sat in a more 'quiet' area but still the noise is invasive. I had the falafel salad from the limited Gluten Free menu, it needed more flavour. If you are GF you can't have anything fried on the menu so a little disappointed to not be able to choose hallumi fries, chips, or sweet potato fries. It's a lovely restaurant in a lovely location with great staff. Food average.

Compared to previous visits to Bill’s in Chichester this was something of a disappointment. The food was OK - whereas we have found it to be good in the past - and the service was rather patchy. Our server seemed keen, but appeared somewhat insincere and for some reason there was a 20 minute delay between showing us the dessert menu and coming back to see if we wished to order from it. By that time it was too late and so we didn’t have puddings, and Bills didn’t maximise their revenue from our table.

The lobster linguine was delicious as was the Picpoul de Pinet. The tables were well spaced out, the staff were helpful and attentive. I was able to get my Blue Light Card discount as an NHS nurse.

Restaurant is upstairs but has a lift if you prefer not to use the stairs.

Nice selection of tables - round, rectangle and booths.

Good choice of meals - we had main and dessert. Food was hot and tasty.

Not a huge selection of wines by the glass.

Friendly service and we were happy to pay the optional 12.5% service charge.

Toilets were clean and fresh (although we were there early evening and it was not busy)

Nice touch to have hand gel on all tables.

We three friends met for an after work catch up over dinner and were not disappointed at Bill's. We were served quickly and efficiently although were not rushed.
No complaints!

Three of us had Friday lunch at Bill’s in Chichester. We enjoyed a busy but not too noisy ambience. The service was aimed completely at ensuring we had an enjoyable wxprrience. Staff seemed gent happy in themselves and we’re therefore able to give full consideration to our needs, The timing of the food was on the whole ideal, relaxed without being too slow. However it did take nearly 25 minutes for our dessert to arrive which resulted in me having to top our car parking with a 15 minute dash- not ideal! Staff were apologetic and kept my apple crumble warm whilst I was away. Without this delay, our rating would have been 5 star. However we will be looking forward to eating at Bill’s in Chichester in the near future
