I was very disappointed, the steak was over cooked and food was pretty cold. I’ve had breakfast here before and it was marvellous but it really isn’t a place I would go for steak again. Not great at all. Lovely atmosphere though. Lots of options for Gluten-free.

Great food, great decor, great staff, great environment for a meal. Wondered why people kept taking photos of me from outside the restaurant until it was pointed out that a Love Island couple were sitting across from us.

Portion size of the sea bass dish on the set menu is quite small, but was a tasty dish, but cost for 2 courses was very good. Staff were excellent, very attentive to the right degree, and an overall lovely dining experience - Thank You

We had a delicious steak meal at a very reasonable price with charming and attentive service. It was our first visit but we'll be coming again! It was very busy on a sunny Sunday so important to book a table.

Very good food , nice atmosphere. Service was friendly and good except that food came very slowly, so we didnt stay for a desert, but in fairness the restaurant was full and it was a Saturday. Despite the speed, I would definitely come again

Very sad to say we had a very disappointing meal at Bill's last night, we waited an hour for our food, when it did come with no apologies, it was simple bland and tasteless. We have had good meals in the past here, such a shame they've really gone down hill, won't be returning.

Pleasant enough - food was good enough. Cocktails were average. Service a little patchy - not helped by new starter who was very nice and tried really hard but was not quite trusted by management and a manageress whose interpersonal skills could do with a brush up.
