    Stopped in for breakfast. Was advised a backlog in the kitchen on arrival. Drinks arrived swiftly and were lovely as always in Bills. After waiting for an hour someone told us the food was being plated. This took another 15 minutes. Food was OK. Not as good as usual. Eggs over done, sausages tasted as if they had been waiting around for a while. Tough on the outside, cold in the middle. Feel the service was lacking and the information flow regarding just how long we would be waiting wasn’t there. I’m putting this down to an off day all round.

    Always enjoyed Bill’s but had only ever gone at lunch time. A group of 4 of us booked for dinner on my recommendation. Unfortunately I don’t think my companions were that impressed! The majority of the team were friendly and very busy. An extra guest turned up for our table & the restaurant manager (I assume) was very accommodating and was friendly and attentive all night (blonde hair and smiley). However the wait for the food and drinks to be served was far longer than we expected, with one of our guests not receiving her meal until around 10mins after we’d got ours. Our food was OK but not as good as I’ve had at Bills before. The burgers were dry and solid. The lobster and seafood linguine was a red mush. However the calamari starter was perfect! All in all, I’d go back for lunch service but not dinner.

    Whilst not a 5 star restaurant, the service received from the second we walked through the door to the second we left, was outstanding,,,, I wish i could give the service an additional service, Bryony, you are a credit to your company. Menu has something for everyone and is cooked to perfection. Whilst its not a cheap night out, we all left full and very happy, thank you Bills of Leicester

    Staff were friendly enough but white wine was warm and had to ask three times for ice. Child's pasta had a strange taste and wasn't edible. The rest of the meal was ok. Bills is usually much better than this..

    The staff are absolutely incredible they really go above and beyond! I’d employ them all! We were seated straight the way and offered drinks immediately. The food came out within 15 minutes, I can only describe it as delicious, (Bill Big Breakfast) all cooked to the highest standard. Over all an excellent experience however it’s not cheap but that’s probably down to the quality of the food prepared. Definitely will be a returning customer

    My daughter & I loved the evening. She chose the seafood linguine & said it was, the best meal she'd eaten since our trip to Maderia. We went 5 years ago!! I particularly enjoyed the helpful and friendly service, very personal rather than corporate, which I like. We'll definitely go back when we're next in Leicester.

    I’ve been to Bills before for breakfast and loved it. Lunch on Mother’s Day was very average. The dessert they gave for free was terrible. Good job I didn’t have to pay for it. Free desert but then a 12% service charge… shocking. Sorry will not be returning.

    Bill's was nice, the food was good but not sure if it was worth £12 for a burger with no salad or anything just fries on the side. We waited for over an hour for mains. We got served by three different people so we never felt that personal touch. Also I would suggest they could get some high chairs with little tables attached as the ones they provide are simply chairs and babies food just drops straight on the floor.

    We have only just started using Bill’s. 1st was in Norwich used Leicester twice now, has been consistent so far. Excellent staff very attentive, & informative, which is a bonus. There is nothing worse than deciding on a dish come to take order then tell you that fish is off. None of that at Bill’s.

    Very small portion of tuna on the taco’s Pancakes weren’t served with enough fruit, we asked for cream & Nutella. We were changed for the very small portion of cream & Nutella wasn’t available. I didn’t appreciate the 12.5% service charge being added to my bill. I left a 5% cash tip.
