A lovely evening to catch up with family. The service was good as was the food although the food could have been a bit warmer.
Another wrap with the Mojo chicken would balance the meal better as 1 wrap wasnt enough.

First Day of new menu and a quiet Tuesday evening
Chips delivered cold and returned - 2nd attempt piping hot and tasty
Parts of meal missed but provided after reminder
Table call back made prior to food arriving
Promised still water forgotten but 1 glass each provided after a reminder
Given above I object to automatic addition of Service Charge to the bill

Friendly staff at a nicely located restaurant. We requested a quiet table on a Saturday evening, a tricky ask but the staff managed it pretty well as we did get the quietest table that we could see within the venue. Nice food, good cocktails, slightly hefty bill...

As we arrived last night the service was brilliant and staff so great. However, with the full and busy restaurant they had music playing on top of that which made it near to impossible to have a conversation and hearing what the others at our table was saying.

The food overall was great, however, the kids burger was burnt and so dry she couldn't eat it.

We went to Bill’s for the first time for a late lunch. The service was amazing and the food was delicious. They cater for all dietary requirements and even asked about allergies.

Dirty plate was given to my husband for his pudding. The plate had mustard on it and thankfully we told the waitress and she sorted it straight away.

I do believe you need to clean your pot wash machine and check plates a little more often to reduce this happening for others.

We had a couple of issues with the food, but the staff resolved this within minutes offering a refund on the one meal and free drink. I was blown away with the friendliness of the staff and must say dispite the issues we had experiencing will definitely be visiting again soon this place has the customer service down to a T :)

This was a visit as we were on holiday, and thought where shall we go to eat.

Been before to this Bill's, but this time was much better. The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for us. Food was great, and came quickly and efficiently, so all good.

The only thing that is starting to annoy me, and this is not just Bill's but lots of restaurants, is to automatically add on a service charge. This shouldn't happen, and it should be down to the individual to choose to tip if we feel the service is correct. It becomes very awkward if you want to take it off, or you don't even notice it's been done.

Not a lot of choice but the food was lovely. The music was a bit weird, not to my liking! And it was very expensive… even with 20% off for blue light discount it came to £80 (with tip) for 2 adults and 2 kids!

Food was good. Service was poor. Whenever we tried to get the servers attention we were told she was busy and would be back shortly. She then stood and talked to other servers or found something else to do. We understand some restaurants are very busy and short staffed but this was as though she had to find something else to do instead. Even when we asked for the bill we were told she would be back shortly, but just came to ask what we wanted, rather than bring the bill.
Meal spoiled really - we asked that they remove the service charge and they did without question.

Unfortunately this trip to Bill’s at Gloucester Quays did not meet up to our expectations. Overcooked, cold sausages, cold toast and tepid mushrooms were not up to our previous experience of breakfast at this venue. Let’s hope it was just a one off!

Our waitress did ask if everything was ok with our food but this was after about 10 minutes when we’d almost finished eating. Perhaps we should have pointed it out earlier and maybe it could have been rectified. Shame, as we like eating at Bill’s when we are visiting the Gloucester and Cheltenham area.
