Wonderful food, attentive but respective service. Was apprehensive to go to such a mainstream restaurant for a queer date but had a wonderful evening with no judgement from staff. Would definitely return!

The starters were great and well sized. The mains tasted great but two were brought out incorrectly so had to be changed. The desserts (warm chocolate brownie) weren’t warm sadly.
The waitress was lovely but I just don’t think the food is worth the price unfortunately. I spent £10 on a gin & lemonade and it was served in a small half pint glass.

First, my name isn’t Mary.

The food was nice, it unfortunately didn’t settle in our stomachs though

Good over priced £13 for eggs on toast with smoked salmon too much for a chain.

Service was great, shame they don’t get the service charge, please change that. Would make them feel more valves as staff.

Great meal out at Bills. Waitress was brilliant and I asked for a recommendation between two burgers and went for the halloumi as suggested and it was fantastic. Partner said his burger was the best he’d had in a long time too! Calamari, olives and fries great too. Will be back. Perfect location for the theatre too.

Great meal I had goats cheese, beetroot risotto and it was delicious. Followed by cheesecake in a flower pot which is so lovely to eat as well as look at.
Good service to start with but it got very busy and was a bit slower so it was understandable.

We had a lovely meal here yesterday. My friends and I hadn’t managed to meet for Christmas due to having covid, so it was a delayed Christmas and birthday meal. We enjoyed the set menu and had 3 courses all of which were really tasty and such good value. I was treated to a glass of Prosecco as the birthday girl too. We all really enjoyed the evening and Evie was a great waitress too.

Amazing food, great value for money, fulfilled our seating request, able to swap items on the breakfast menu without charge. Generous portions. Waiters and waitresses were lovely apart from one which may have been new but we asked for tap water and gave us bottled, we didn't open it and asked for tap instead, she went away but never came back so had to ask another for tap and she came over instantly. Despite that still hands down the best place for breakfast in Newbury, would 100% recommend!

Great food and fabulously attentive and friendly staff. We had a breakfast, which was great. My daughter requires GF foods and the staff couldn't have ben more helpful.

One thing to watch though - there is a service charge added to your bill, labelled "optional", so if you don't want to pay it, you'll need to ask for it to be removed.

All in all though, thoroughly recommend!

The staff at Bills in Newbury were extremely helpful. We arrived an hour early but they happily sorted a table out for us and as we were a party of nine this was no mean feat

The food was good and service excellent. A good place to take a mixed age group and an excellent venue if you are attending the Pantomime in the Corn Exchange as it’s right next door
