We’ve been to Bill’s in various locations before, including this one and we like the food and the atmosphere. The service today was excellent as always. The only gripe is that it seems depending on the chef they use a degree of creative licence, which is not a bad thing, except when it can spoil the dish. We ordered padrón peppers as a starter and we asked for them to have salt but not the miso sauce as we prefer our padrón peppers as the original recipe. They left the miso out as requested but instead of salt, they came with a chilli topping. For us it had no place there and as our daughter was sharing them, it made them unsuitable for her so she missed out. They were also undercooked which was a shame.
However! Our server was great and the rest of the meal was excellent, we had the original beef burger, their vegan special burger and the buttermilk chicken burger and they were all delicious. The Albariño bottle of wine was one of the best albariños we’ve had in a while too so very pleased with that.
Overall a very nice and relaxing experience!

Lovely setting and ambience. The food and service were very good. It was quiet noisy but I suppose to be expected in a busy and popular restaurant!

Went for brunch and tried the vegetarian version. Very nice. Main complaint is having to go so early now that the breakfast menu finishes at 11:30am at the weekend so will stick with Cote in future as they extended the breakfast menu availability from 1pm to 2pm instead of shortening the time to 11:30am. Feel like you’re losing customers who like a later brunch this way. Also the breakfast prices are much more reasonable at Cote. We had more or less the same at each but the bill was £10 more at Bill’s than Cote plus Cote provide jam to use up any leftover toast, which is a lovely touch.

We went to use the 2 for 1 voucher we had for January. Waitress gave us the set menu and we ordered off that unaware that the 2 for 1 voucher didnt cover for the set menu - so manager took off the set menu prices and charged us full for all (thankfully we had only starters and mains!) but still worked out £20 more than we would have spent normally.
Manager even had the cheek to add on the service charge and didnt even offer an apology, give us our drinks for free or anything.
Really poor! They work there they should before they take the order see if we have vouchers etc and make us aware of what is covered.

Could not fault the food or the service.
The tables for two were far too close to the next tables. Due to loud people and concerns of Covid we asked to move when a better less crowded table became free.
Another couple left before the even ordered as they didn’t want to be squashed into a table between two already occupied.

Had a lovely time as staff were so friendly and helpful explaining the menu etc . I was there at Christmas and had a lovely time as again staff couldn’t of been nicer and the Christmas menu was delicious. Great idea with voucher for Offer though we ended up having the set menu. Back on 3rd feb with girlfriends who were there with me at Christmas time. Hoping there will be a £2.99 cocktail on offer as really enjoyed it and great price

Sadly, our food was cold for a couple of guests.

Very unusual for Bills, service was very good, however, due to issue in kitchen poor communication two of the breakfasts were cold upon arrival.

Was just right for us, we were a large group, different dietary requirements, kids and a small dog but all were easily catered for with no fuss. Food was great as was the service, I have no issues at all, would happily return.

We thought we'd give the vegan menu a try and were pleasantly surprised at how good the vegan burger was, really tasty in our opinion, well worth a try. We had the apple crumble to finish, which was also very good.

On the last two visits we have had issues with the food. The first being my husband ordered fish pie to be served fish and chips, he was offered to get the order changed but this would have meant myself and our daughter finishing our meals while my husband watched and then us then having to watch him. Yesterday we ordered a side of stem broccoli for it to arrive halfway through our meal. We cannot fault the service but we where once again disappointed due to the food.

Bill's seem to have changed their menu and it is not for the better. Risotto was extremely dry and flavourless. It appeared to be made with ordinary rice and not risotto rice. The chicken with mushrooms was ok but dull. Tuna taco was the highlight. we won't be rushing back.

the meal was disappointing. the soup was too sweet and not hot enough and had to be re heated. The risotto was poor and rather tasteless. Just beetroot and rice not very excitting. The elderflower presse was also too sweet.
The place is lovely and I wpuld go again but disappointing meal

Not the Bills experience we had been used to. Has previously been a great place to eat but this time we were disappointed with some aspects of the food (flatbreads were plain tortilla ones and rosemary salted fries did not taste any different to normal fries). The service was ok but not particularly attentive, and the kitchen floor looked dirty when passing to the toilets (themselves not particularly clean). The staff were probably stretched in these COVID times so this should be remembered. I am sure we will return again in the future, we usually have had good experiences at Bills so hopefully this will be the case once again.

Rude waitress, didn’t even acknowledge us when she came over to ask for drinks (after us waiting 15 minutes). Food took so long to arrive we left after waiting 45 minutes after ordering, we initially asked the waitress how long the wait was for food and we were told 20 minutes. It’s clear our food hadn’t even been started. I could hear the waitress apologising to other customers for the wait, these were people who were there before is so no idea how long they had been waiting.

food was good. boxing day curry was amazing.
service was terrible. asked for minor alterations to food like no lettuce on kids burger and no coleslaw on on adult burger both came with these things. asked for chocolate and vanilla ice cream and we ended up getting the other tables ice cream order and we were left to sort it out between ourselves. won't be going back cos we always wait over 35 mins for food. not acceptable.
