Went for a birthday lunch. Service good throughout. We had vegetarian burgers. Halloumi cheese set on crushed avocado in a brioche bun accompanied by chips. We both found it all delicious. The atmosphere was buzzy without being overly noisy.
We will definitely go again.

Nice night out with the hubby, the restaurant had a good buzz. Service was a little slow to start but food and drinks came promptly after we finally ordered. Well priced, good portion sizes and pretty tasty. Felt like a night out rather than just a meal.

We had a lovely brunch. The waiter was specially accommodating to our baby. He did little touches such as making sure he served the food to our baby first, giving extra napkins. Had an understanding of young children and also showed an interest in our baby. I can’t remember his name but I remember him mentioning he has a baby himself! Thank you for being so kind and caring

I like Bill's in general as its a no fuss dinning experience. Although the staff were great, the service was extremely slow, my daughters burger arrived undercooked, ordered two glasses of white wine which we just under room temperature, drinks order mixed up and took for ever to sort - received my first glass of wine just as I finished my main! Manager discounted drinks and daughters food off the bill without needing to ask. Just a shame service and quality of food lead to us having a poor experience.

I booked the table on the Thursday before for Sunday breakfast. On arrival the table wasn't ready which they tried to resolve by putting two round tables together which meant our part was then split. I asked to be moved only to told they had overbooked the restaurant and that was only table in front of the open main door - but they could close the door...!!!. We left the restaurant - very disappointed as have been using Bills for quite some time.

The service was prompt, the restaurant was quite busy serving breakfast. Unfortunately the door was left open and there was a cold draft in the restaurant. The front door should have a porch to stop the draughts. Otherwise food great, good portions sizes but quite expensive. I would recommend a visiting.

Food was delivered quickly but cold as were the pots of tea we had. We did complain and waiter said he’d tell his manager but nothing more was said. Very disappointing

The service was not good at all from the waitress serving us. We had to keep asking for everything and they slow to actually ask us for our main course / pudding / clearing plates / bill. The food was great though!

Lovely atmosphere and service was great. Restaurant felt clean. Food on the whole was ok. The starters - calamari and the chicken dumpling were delicious. Sadly the minute steak was utterly tasteless. We specifically asked for plain fries (I hate the rosemary scattered over and the over salting too) but sadly fries arrived with rosemary and salt. Not worth complaining but disappointing, we did mention to the waiter who brought out our plates but he just said sorry and walked away.
I like Bills and have been to many. I will go back but won’t have the minute steak.

So glad I chose Bill’s for private business meeting. Excellent service apart from apparent surprise about request for cup of hot water (after I’d had 2 coffees) with my food, instead of cold

Went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. It was very busy and quite loud. Unfortunately my mother—in-law is quite hard of hearing and found it difficult to join in conversation despite the fact she was sat in the middle of us all. Food and service were great though and would definitely recommend Bills

The menu seems confused and all the dishes we could see (and experience) were very average except the deserts which are lovely. The service is friendly and nice but you are short staffed (understandable at the moment) which means the staff are much less attentive.
Its a shame because Farnham Bills was one of the best but they are now just another of the places where you go for the company and something to eat rather than the food being the main reason to go.
