Our service from Jerry and Paris was amazing. It was my wife’s birthday and our first trip out with our newborn.
Jerry abs Paris were really helpful to get us settled in and the birthday sparkles was excellent.

Highly recommend this restaurant to families with children

Fantastic service, kids meal and dessert brilliant value for money and chocolate pudding was loved. The only place that I have been that actually has big pots for your tea!! Love it.
The only thing I would have changed would be the fish fingers as they didn't taste very fresh. Would highly recommend and will 100% be back

Again "Breakfast time at Bills", it was pretty much as per normal , service possibly a little slower this time than usual. However, we enjoyed it.

Thank you again,

I love Bills, but since the pandemic ended the service has deteriorated, I've been twice and both times the service was slow, the staff don't seem to be genuinely interested, you don't seem to have a dedicated waitress like you used to, which makes tipping difficult, they struggled to remember what drinks you've ordered, I don't blame the staff, I think they are quite new and inexperienced and struggling to learn the requirements, waitressing isn't as simple as people think, it's an art, the same as running a bar, it's not just pulling a pint, I've seen this across quite a lot of places that I have dined in, it seems the experienced staff have moved on and places are struggling to find experienced staff.

The food on the whole was good, i thought my steak was a tad under cooked for medium, but everything else was spot on.

I'd still go there again, in the hope that they've managed to retain staff and therefore the relevant experience would be gained and the service and welcome would be back to its best, I do believe this is a widespread issue across the entertainment sector

My son chose this place for his 21st birthday, and they did do a great job of decorating the table with what we took to them prior to the day

Still worth a visit in my opinion

The food and service was wonderful. The request for a nice table was also granted so very much happy with that.

Would recommend bills to anyone looking for great food and friendly service.

Food was ok but service was slow and felt like it was a chore. There was very little enthusiasm from the waiting team - they may have thought there was some enthusiasm but we didn’t really get that vibe from the group which is a shame as this is the first time we’ve managed to meet. We didn’t enjoy the experience from the waiting staff that we didn’t pay the discretionary tip and no tip was provided.

The food was nice but it arrived cold as did our hot drinks. The staff seemed extremely stretched it took 25 minutes for our cappuccinos to come out and 50 minutes for our food. On top of this when we tried to ask how long the drinks would be we were just told we are busy.

Food was delicious, and wine was really nice. Service was great too! Only issue was that they were sold out on a few things, which considering it was a quiet night was a bit disappointing. But overall really enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend

Booked a meal in for my birthday. When I booked, it asked if it was a celebration and to select which one so I selected Birthday. I assumed because of this, you’d get a little something for having your birthday celebration at there restaurant but it turns out they don’t do anything and it’s just a normal booking. I personally don’t see why they ask if it’s a celebration!! Staff are too serious as well.

Having reserved a table a few days in advance, we did not expect to literally be sat on reception! Worse positioning of a table ever! Everyone was brushing past us in every direction possible! We had staff stood chatting literally 5 cms from my face.... brushing past and knocking the table whilst eating. Also, a few of the staff looked like they didn't want to be and took a while to acknowledge that customers needed serving (whilst yawning) not exactly the best experience unfortunately which is a shame as it's usually brilliant.

It took 15/20 to order our food, 20 for our drinks& when to food came the drinks where finished, so wasn’t able to enjoy our hot drink with our food. Also food took over an hour to be served. I think they need more staff to deliver a better service.
