Had a great time at Bill's in Newbury. The staff were friendly and helpful and the burgers were fabulous!
Lovely friendly staff who all seemed very happy in their work. Very quick service and lovely tasty food.
The lady who served us was quite abrupt.
My food was warm but on other evenings I’ve been there there’s been a wait for food and there wasn’t.
We did tip our Waitrose, we cancelled the service charge as it doesn’t go directly to the actual people on the floor doing the physical had work being a waitress or waitor.
Restaurant was very busy with initial service a little slow, however once orders taken everything was as we would expect of Bill’s.
My daughter and her friend 9yrs and 8yrs old sat at their own table for breakfast and were treated like queens !! Staff so lovely!! Thank you so much Bills !
Excellent service & food. Made us feel really welcome for my wife's birthday celebration
Easy to pre book a table. No waiting around on arrival. Good service by pleasant staff
I was handed a plate that was extremely hot and burned my hands. The waitress didn’t acknowledge this and only did a later member of staff apologise slightly when my friend complained. Shocking and painful.
Excellent service and very charming staff made it a very special occasion
Service and food was outstanding. Very attentive.
Wonderful evening and great service by the waitress in our area
We had a lovely meal for my daughters birthday, fabulous service and really nice meal, even a happy birthday song and free dessert.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and would love to come back.
First time visit, staff polite and friendly. Service very good, food amazing great ambience. Defo revisiting.
Great place to eat lovely staff and nice ambiance and the food very good.
Excellent service and food, exactly what we wanted and not disappointed
It’s a lovely atmosphere with really friendly staff and delicious food. Good location. Would highly recommend it.
Used to be regular prior to the pandemic, now first time back and all was very good.
Interestingly the greater spacing between the tables required of the pandemic has made the eating environment much, much more enjoyable and private.
When Bill's first opened in Newbury there were good spaces between the tables, but then there was a refit and it became a 'cram them in' type of environment, at which point I reduced the number of times I went there, it was also way too noisy.
Now with the enforced distancing it's a much nicer experience all round.
Very pleasant decor, warm and friendly, staff very friendly and welcoming, food served with care, freshly prepared and good value, Bills beer delicious 🤤
New staff. Very lovely and helpful. Management team still the same so smooth sailing, effortless.
Lovely food as usual.
Food was excellent as always. Their take on chicken Cesar Salad is so good, I could eat it all the time.
Service is excellent and they can’t do enough to make your visit great.
Espresso Martinis are very very good.
See you again
Hopeless - but rescued by offer of a free meal. We booked in at 19:30. We got our starters 50 minutes later. The kitchen were clearly unable to cope but there seemed to be a breakdown of comms between them and the floor staff.
Waiters / Managers were oblivious to what was going on in front of their eyes.
What rescued the evening was a Manager who offered no excuse for the poor situtaion and allowed us to leave without paying.
Great atmosphere, beautiful decor, amazing food and lovely staff. Perfect!
We’ve been going to Bills for lunch for since it opened about four yrs ago excluding lockdowns. The staff are really friendly, the menu is fantastic as one of us needs different and alternative food ,eg vegan, and vegetarian. Bills offers a wide range on their mini. All delicious. I can highly recommend it.
Pleasant always difficult to eat out for mead I’m vegan. A few more choices would be good!
Great service last night, so friendly. We all enjoyed our food, such a great menu to choose from.
Party of 5 and only I found fault with my food but did not complain as it was a celebration lunch. We all ordered from the set menu and it was my minute steak which was tough. All the others enjoyed their two courses. The Calamari was superb as always.
The free single desert with a birthday candle was very much appreciated and our waitress was at all times attentive and efficient. We have been to Bills many times before and will certainly come again.
Service was chaotic. Seemed to be so many staff working but no organisation. Waited 25 for drinks to be served 40 minutes for our breakfasts to arrive which were nice but cold. Then waited a further 10 minutes to pay. Unfortunately this is not the first time this has happened at a Bill's Restaurant.
Exceptional staff, friendly and attentive. Service very good and lovely atmosphere
Always great service very friendly staff and lovely food
Staff was very friendly and inviting and food is good value for money.
Great service and as usual the food was top notch. Looking forward to eating there again.
Great place to have breakfast… and first class service
The food and vibes in here are always on point. Our server was very accommodating: she got permission for us to have mimosas for breakfast even though they don't usually allow alcohol before a certain time in the AM. Everything was fab!
The meal was very good. Good service and very nice staff . Would definitely book a table there again.
SUPER slow service. It took hours of waiting. The tuna on black nachos things is always quite good but otherwise, the menu's been hacked down to mediocre and unimaginative. The drinks are absurdly small whether you're ordering a cocktail or a coke. And the deserts are all oversweet or stodgy. You could ignore all this if they didn't force a 12% service charge on you.
Very good food, nice ambiance, nice staff. I don’t like that they put a 12.5% optional charge on the bill and that makes up part of the staff salary.
We were welcomed and shown to a very nice side table. Early Sunday evening dinner. Very good steak with special offer. A couple of glasses of wine. My wife enjoyed a dessert.
Anniversary meal with friends after the racing! Lovely menu choices…great internal decor and ambience. Well worth a visit for any occasion
Fantastic place to eat. Great choice of gluten free food. Staff very helpful. Lovely busy vibe but still felt looked after. Would highly recommend.
