Excellent service, food was great, had a lovely anniversary meal, would Definatley go back 🙂
We went in at 11am for brunch. The staff were a bit overwhelmed.
We were seated really quickly and our order was taken promptly but the drinks took forever to come.
My husband ordered the traditional breakfast and it wasn’t great. Half of it was cold and the eggs didn’t really resemble fried eggs…they looked like rubber. I’m surprised the plate of food was okayed to leave the kitchen. We were in a hurry though and couldn’t face waiting for more food to be cooked.
Had to ask for the bill quite a few times.
It wasn’t terrible by any means but was just pretty mediocre, which is a shame as I normally love a Bill’s brunch!
Party of 3, 10:45 table. Ordered drinks and took 30 mins to get x1 flat white, 15 mins later x2 drinks came; staff couldn’t explain so obviously forgotten about. Food was dry, black pudding was poor. Would go back but service and attentiveness needs to improve.
Sadly not a great visit this time as food temperature wasn’t great and some items over cooked, area where we were sat was dusty and after an initial great welcome, the service was intermittent and towards the end felt overlooked
Nice food and a good kids menu too. Definitely a quirky place decor-wise which was nice. Service was good and the waiters/waitresses were friendly. Desserts were a little overpriced though
Lovely food and waitress was pleasant and helpful..enjoyable experience
Wonderful food and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful
Lovely meal, friendly staff, good hygiene. Have and will eat here again.
Just the service was a bit slow - it was full & staff were worked off their feet, so could not give their usual great service
Superb meal at Bill’s. We enjoyed the Halloumi to start followed by the burger. The waiting staff were very attentive. The food was excellent and the atmosphere relaxed. If I had one complaint it would be the discretionary service charge added to the bill.
Extremely slow service, spent two hours there to have a main and a pudding, everything was slow to arrive. Food was fine but disappointed to have to spend half of our afternoon in Bills (when half of that time was spent waiting for food and drinks). Understand the challenges with covid and staffing but it wasn't busy, we were there at lunchtime (1pm) so staffing should have been sufficient. Disappointing.
We met up with friends and were outside it was the perfect place. Great food and great staff!!
Brilliant service. Very friendly and efficient staff. Great food. Very reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend
We had a really lovely breakfast experience at Bills in Durham. The staff were attentive and friendly from the off. The food was lovely and big portions too. I loved the quirky decor and the menu has lots of choice. Defo recommend Bills for breakfast!
Friendly, great food and relaxed dining. Drinks menu isn't great and on our night they had no cider. Apart from that Minor hiccup, would we go again. Damn tootting..

Our favourite place for breakfast, always delicious food and friendly staff.
Amazing food!! Lovely decor and good service. Only negative was that we were sat quite close to the bar/coffee machine so was very noisy as the barman was making drinks.
Great food, really friendly and helpful staff..thank you for a lovely time!
We usually visit bills quite frequently however our latest visit the food standards seem to have dropped, the eggs were watery and the presentation wasn’t too standard as it usually was, the service was still lovely and upon explaining our pancakes were not as they normally are the guy changed them instantly with no questions asked
Wow have only been to Bill’s in Cambridge but tried this one in Durham absolutely superb.. Soup, Chicken and Mushroom sauce excellent and very tasty. Highly recommend this restaurant. Staff very friendly and efficient.
Food ok, service very good but very welcoming to dogs
The atmosphere was nice and the staff were too. Good food and service.
Very lovely dinner at bills and really lovely staff.
Staff were excellent, food was delicious and well priced
I had never been to Bill’s before so wasn’t sure what to expect and was absolutely blown away. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The food was gorgeous, the best pancakes I’ve ever had! Definitely will come back again.
Excellent choices . Great quality ingredients.Big wine list
I have dined at Bill’s several times. It never disappoints.
Lovely Garden plate breakfast. All cooked perfectly and very tasty.
Asked for a bottle of Shiraz
Had no idea it was £35!!!! Far too expensive
Had the sirloin steak special
- terrible steak
Been to Bills lots of times but won’t be going back
I would highly recommend Bill's, the food is amazing, cannot fault anything. Service was excellent, we were never left waiting for drinks. I was surprised when the bill arrived, less than £80 and that was 2 staters, 2 mains and 2 bottles of wine. I certainly will be returning.
