Not very happy with the 12.5% Opt Service Charge. What does it actually mean. Is it optional, and if so, how does one remove it?

We went for a late breakfast-which was delicious. The restaurant was very full, but the staff were amazingly pleasant and unfazed. Typical Bills-we had a great time

Disappointed we weren't able to sit outside after being told earlier in the week if this would be possible with my booking. So it meant being in a louder environment.
Food took 45 minutes to arrive but appreciated the proactive response and complimentary drinks offered and the food, as ever, was great.

Although well priced and presented cocktails, the time to receive them was ludicrous (and no prior warning that they would take so long). It was approx. 20 mins from order to receive then. When we chased, the waitress did not come back and update us.

Lovely brunch at Bills - friendly, attentive staff. Stayed chatty for ages, not rushed to move on. Only issue had been with the booking - when we arrived at 10am, they had no record of our booking although I had received an email confirmation???

Lovely atmosphere with very friendly staff. The food was excellent and good value for money. Just wish they would leave the customer to decide on the extra 12% and put that cost onto the menu prices.

Food is extremely overpriced!
Service took an extremely long time and we had to cancel desert due to timings and it taking so long. Drinks took an extremely long time to come. Food way too over priced for what it is.

My little girl wanted to have breakfast at Bills, Horsham, a little mother and daughter treat. Bills did not fail on their service whatsoever. The service was very friendly and the food was amazing.
An absolutely wonderful morning treat! Thank you Bills!

We sat outside at Horsham branch but service not very attentive. I was disappointed when I asked for the bill & it was forgotten. I had to go into restaurant to ask for it again. Poor when they are charging a service charge on the bill.

Food and service was as always impeccable but the only downside was that having sat upstairs with my young son for the very first time we were quite annoyed by the men wandering around the dining area on mobile phones with no face masks on. They were unchallenged by staff which upset my autistic/ADHD son quite a bit as he wears his face mask even though it causes him upset ‘to save others’. He was quite preoccupied by the men’s disregard for the rules.

I thought during lockdown a deep clean would have taken place but it is as dirt as ever. I asked to sit inside because the floor outside was covered in cigarettes ends and just from looking. Inside we were seated next to a plant with soil spilt all over the side, the dado rail and panelling were covered in bits of food and drink splashes, the menus were dirty and I was handed 2 dirty side plates.
There were no smoothies available, my starter did not arrive as described on the menu, my husbands main course was completely forgotten and the strawberries on my pancakes looked like they’d seen better days.

We were given a free coffee and kombucha to apologise for my husband not getting any lunch but it was still £60 for a less than average lunch. The lack of cleaning is a real issue.

Me and my friend were sitting outside - our table was very unstable, so we had to utilise one of your carboard leaflets to steady it. It didn't bother us as we sorted it out, thought might just mention that maybe something can be done about unsteady tables.
Food and service was great! Would visit and have breakfast in Horsham branch again :)

Quite a slow service, although this isn’t normal.. food was good as always.. then they add an optional service charge to your bill.. but because the service was quite slow, I didn’t have time to wait longer to ask them to remove it.. they should really ask you first.

Friendly staff and atmosphere and food was served efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble. It was nice to dine out again in a relaxed atmosphere.
Just a small point you could serve 250 ml large glasses of white wine at the same price of the 175ml as some of the whites were overpriced.

Nice meal, felt a little bit too fast with service so we did ask to slow down a bit. Service charge steep £25 for a family of 5.

Busy, but not rushed. Waiting staff very pleasant, checked everything was ok from time to time, but not too often to feel invasive. It was nice to see groups eating out and enjoying themselves.

Quite a nice place to sit outside when the weather is nice. Book early for breakfast as it is not easy to just turn up and get a space at the moment.

The staff were working very hard but were clearly short staffed as service was very slow and we waited along time for our drinks and then our meal which were lukewarm when they arrived.
The restaurant was very busy and so very noisy and this wasn’t helped by the volume of the music which was too loud.

* table was booked for 1pm, table not ready, not cleaned and no kids menu was given so we had to ask once at the table
* waited a long time for drinks, we asked for a jug of water which was not possible so 4 small glasses of water with no ice, small glass for a 3 year old not ideal and no straw
* Vegan, beef & chicken burger were good, fries bit dry, kids burger very small in a big bap & BBQ sauce spicy not ideal for a 3 year old
* Prosecco were in very small glasses, expensive for £6.50
* Dessert was VERY rich, being vegan I asked for coconut ice cream but got clotted cream, asked for it to be changed & overpriced
* When booking I asked if a candle could be in the birthday girl's dessert, no reply so I assumed it was ok but when I asked to remind them the waiter didn't know anything about it & said it's not allowed due to Covid but if I had brought a candle in they would have done it for me - a real shame
