Good everyday food at reasonable prices. Service was good
Really lovely food but what really stood out was the service. Really friendly and efficient staff took really good care of us.
Fish finger sandwich was overfried, crab cakes were bland, grilled tomatoes were not even grilled. Food was barely edible but definitely not enjoyable. Will not go back.
The waiter got our starter mixed up. Fish pie was average and the side vegetables were shrivelled and chewy due to being placed on a mini hot plate! £70 odd later! Too expensive for what it was. Won’t be choosing Bills again. Waste of money
First visit to this branch. Food was great. Better than I remembered in other Bill’s. Staff were friendly & efficient. Will come back x
Food was nice, staff were lovely. Great place sitting outside for lunch.
The service was below average, multiple members of staff standing around taking to each other while we waited for plates to be cleared, orders to be taken.
Thank you Amy for the awesome service, Bill's never fails to please.....Thank you Bills
As I don’t drink the beer or wine offer did not apply (I did say I would take the beer home for hubby but was told this was not allowed) I was told I could have a soft drink and wanted lemonade and was told there would be a charge for this,I said what is in the soft drinks package COKE or DIET COKE.I said I don’t drink coke they said we can’t do it.Manager came over to say he would do it this once as he could not put it through tills.Thrn I went to toilet and scalded my hand as hot water was coming out like steam(if that had been a child 😫)steak was more fat than meat,the only good thing was the company that I bought to restaurant.And no I will not be going back
Really yummy food and amazing service! Thank you!
Very nice and very obliging staff
Ate from set menu . Delicious steak and fries . risotto was very tasty but poached egg a little overdone and solid making dish just a little dry
Salted caramel tart with ice cream was divine . One of us didn’t eat coconut so that ice cream was willingly replaced with vanilla
The food was amazing the staff were very friendly and always made use feel welcome.
Food was not like I have read overpriced steaks weren't cooked to what we ask and was like something from lidl or aldi all fairness wouldn't go back
All our breakfasts were cold. All our eggs were hard. Most of us didn’t get butter. Mushrooms and tomatoes were tasteless.
I wouldn’t go back for breakfast and probably wouldn’t bother with any other meal given the quality of food.
Great service. Went for a meal with my fiancé for our anniversary. Food was amazing
Foods always lovely and the staff are always really nice at this branch.
Very baby friendly!
A great place for brunch, staff friendly and welcoming. good variety of food
It has been a while since we had a breakfast at Bill's.....it was worth the wait
I live Bills. Somethings are over priced but overall really good. Staff were so lovely even though my child made quite a mess. They have a great outside area on the river so we will definitely go there again
Love Bill's, really good selection and it is reasonably priced. Between ordering and getting the food was a little slow.
Great food and service! Would definitely recommend!
Wonderful experience at Bill’s! I went out with my 2 little girls and the food was great, service was really quick and staff were lovely and very helpful! Would definitely go back and recommend to anyone!
Great spot for a delicious breakfast! Thanks for having us!
Me and my partner had a great time at Bills in kingston, the service was great, we had the bills burger it was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious.
I always have a great time at Bills.
The staff were friendly and attentive. Amy, our waitress was a lovely girl. Food tasty, drinks good ( Brass monkey cocktail could have done with more alcohol)
I've eaten at Bill's for many years, but since lockdown, sadly it's changed for the worse. The menu is much more limited than before, they used to have much more variety. The quality of the food and drinks wasn't great yesterday. Our cocktails tasted watery, I was given a dish containing dairy (despite alerting them to my allergy), which was only picked up on because I double checked with the waiter. I then had to wait for my dish to be recooked, by which time my partner had almost finished his meal. They seemed quite short staffed, and overall we left with no intention of returning there unfortunately.
Felt like eating at a school canteen, we had the 3 course meal and the starters were ok although Iceland makes the same sort of food, I had the sea bass for main which was horribly dry and served with the tiniest portion of dry mash potato. I had to eat it all with mayo not to choke on each piece. The dessert was nice though, just scoops of ice creams so can't really get it wrong. The waitress was nice but didn't have a clue and was very shy and quiet so with the noise around we couldn't hear anything she was saying. I usually like Bill's food, but this time was a real let down...
Great service, nice decor…albeit a little dark. Good value with special deals eg sirloin steak after 6pm. The majority of the food are of good portion sizes and tasty, but I was disappointed with the steak. It was cooked perfectly but it had hardly any flavour and that was with the addition of garlic butter. Everything else was good.
Great, filling food, and great service. Thank you for Ann easy working lunch.
Wait staff were amazing but food was terrible! My risotto was absolutely nothing like it and more like rice with a can of mushroom soup. Very disappointing
Had a lovely meal with great service and ambiance. Definitely going to visit again.
Bill's has a lovely riverside setting so it's great for alfresco dining. Varied menu and during the week there is an additional set-menu which is good value. They cater well for vegans and vegetarians, lovely healthy options and also burgers etc.
Disappointed! Attention from staff was poor- whilst being served hot drinks, our boiling hot pot of tea was dropped by the waitress . Waitress cleared it up, but no one came to see if we were ok. My Mum had been splashed up her legs! Food wasn’t particularly hot and we weren’t offered any condiments. Whilst trying to pay the bill, I was left waiting for some time. Think having more waiting staff is a much needed necessity. Won’t be in a rush to go back.
Food was good
Service was excellent very polite & professional.
The servers were very friendly and welcoming, however the food was sub standard to say the least and the price was outrageous given the quality.
Having lived away from the UK for three years we were looking forward to returning to Billls which used to be good food at a fair price. What we got was terrible food and overpriced. £1.30 for kids portion of peas that was the same size as the free mayonaise is disgusting. Not to mention the stale burger bun, the burnt burger and another £1.30 to add one strip of burnt streaky bacon.
The Adult 'bills burger' is the biggest rip off, it is just a tasteless overcooked burger in a stale bun, then extra for bacon, cheese, avo making the cost near on 20 pounds, for a signature dish that should be all in for 14. No to mention the 20mm tick solid slice of red onion and some of the bits missing completely.
The servers acknowledged it and changed it out and gave a discount but really sub standard and not what at all the old experience was like. Or like that of other Bills we have been to in the past. Really disappointing.
Good service, relaxed atmosphere - not rushed. Excellent food!
Very helpful staff managed to move us from a big table to seating outside and allowed us to rearrange tables to fit in a push chair. Food was great aswell:)
Lovely place and excellent service from friendly staff. Sorry but food did not hit the mark, we had sea bass topped with cold avocado, lots of it! As a dish it did not work warm fish with chilled avocado not really a great mix. We would return but would try something simpler next time like a burger.
Do not like criticising the hospitality sector at the moment it has been a difficult time but you did ask for a review and just trying to be honest.
