    Always good food but not jaw smackingly memorable. But I would return again. Service was very good. Unfortunately a VERY loud girls night was hived off to one corner but they (well actually only a couple of their party) were still deafeningly loud, laughing and shouting and distracted from our family evening. No attempt made by Bills to ask them to toned in down a touch.

    Really poorly organised. I made the booking a long time ago, I phoned to check which menus we could order from in advance, I sent a preorder over a week before the booking, I phoned to check it had been received and there were no problems. However, when we arrived, we were told there would be a significant delay as the lunch time menu (which as above I had checked we could order from) wasn’t available until later and they couldn’t start even cooking until a certain time. The food quality was also poor with 2 people having to send theirs back as the steak was cold . Some of the orders were also incorrect. It was also booked for my friends hen do and so it was a shame the experience was so terrible.

    Every month I look forward to the Farmers Market on a Sunday followed by breakfast out. Often I choose Bill's in Newbury for my breakfast treat. Last Sunday however was definitely not a treat. I ordered traditional breakfast with a side of black pudding and a glass of orange juice. I had two requests 1) No ice in the orange juice and 2) that the roasted tomato be fully cooked and soft. When the juice arrived it had ice in it, so I sent it back. When it returned it looked like somebody had just stuck their fingers in the juice and pulled the cubes out. When the breakfast arrived the tomato, far from being roasted, was raw. When I mentioned this to the server she said "sorry" and wandered off. Don't get me wrong I like raw tomato, just as part of a salad, not for breakfast. This also happened a few years ago but then the manager took my plate away and came back with cooked tomato and after that each time I came in he would mention that he would ensure the tomato was cooked. Looks like management has changed. It was not just about the tomato. The sausage seemed to have a lot of rusk in it giving it an unpleasant spongy texture. The black pudding was tasteless and the sour dough toast should have been described as slightly warmed bread as it did not look like it had ever been near a grill or toaster. It seems to me that Bill's are trying to maintain a price point at the expense of portion size and quality. Yet still add the "optional" service charge on the bill. I have been going to Bill's in Newbury since it first opened, however if this is now the standard I won't be going back.

    Some of our order was missed initially but they put that right quickly. We're offered olives and bread for the table, came back with one small plate of 6 olives dip and flatbread. Not what we were expecting for a table of 6. The food was nice. Mostly though, we were sat near the bar and every 30 seconds everyone jumped as the staff threw the glass bottles into a bottle bin. Quite disruptive and noisey. We didn't have dessert as we wanted to leave for some peace and quiet. Shame.

    Popped in for a last minute family meal and so happy we chose Bills. Sat outside while viewing menu and were taken care of with warm blankets, drinks and smiley waiter. When table ready, order taken promptly, another super cheerful staff member made us feel so welcome. Food arrived quickly and the starters were outstanding, crunchy crab cake/balls with delicious coriander sauce and indulgent dollop of lobster mayo. Son had the dumplings and declared them best ever eaten, Mains arrived again very quickly perfectly cooked generous portions. Husband adored the buttermilk chicken burger, son couldn’t get enough of the gold plated burger and we fought over the chipotle mayo. Somehow we then ordered puddings and after 2 amazing banofee splits and an innovative Elton colada were so full we could hardly move. 100% satisfaction.

Despite being a busy time the staff all seemed calm. Special mention to Jade for attentiveness and positivity. Very refreshing to see great customer service in action.

    Interesting and lively place for lunch and an enjoyable experience overall, though I felt that the large brunch was lacking. The very small portion of bacon was soggy not even slightly crisp (in the States it would go back), the sausage was pretty tasteless. The eggs were good and beans, well, were beans. The rest was OK-good. Massive amount of bread, not for me. Probably be back reasonably soon and will order something else.

    I enjoyed my food my partner did not enjoy his. Service was not the best. Our server bless him was run off his feet. He was working very hard. But unfortunately he was obviously having to deal with too many tables. Our mains and drinks were brought to us promptly but after that our service went down hill. When our mains were cleared we were not offered a desert menu we assumed he was going to pop back but didn’t. We had finished our drinks and weren’t offered another. After approx 25-30 mins we decided we wouldn’t bother having a desert and just get the Bill but we couldn’t get hold of anyone to ask for the Bill. In the end my partner went to till and asked for the Bill which in fairness was brought promptly once asked for. We just felt the poor server was overwhelmed with too many people to look after and because of this we felt forgotten and so didn’t enjoy the experience and also didn’t have another drink or dessert which we had planned to. Such a shame.

    Can't fault the food. We had the eggs bendict - so pretty on the plate & tasted lovely & the chips are nice addition - and the brunch sandwich which was a delicious combination of tastes. Lovely staff, friendly & helpful. Sat at rear window table with lovely view to courtyard garden but it was cold there, tho we did go on a freezing day. Love the decor & ambience, good soft lighting too, no horrid bright lights. Had trouble catching anyones eye for the bill which was £35 for lunch & drinks & service for 2, which is fine for such good food & overall a delicious lunch in a space thats pleasant to be in with nice staff. Would definitely recommend and will return.

    Came on a Saturday afternoon and the restaurant was packed. Service was polite but slow and we had to repeat requests multiple times. We only had one drink whilst there due to the length of time everything took to come. Food was good for 2 out of 3 of us but the chicken burger was very dry and was served on an annoyingly tiny slippery plate. Overall was nice and the menu is good but not as great as it could be with a few tweaks

    Overall a pleasant experience, although a bit draughty by the door. Service was attentive. Piped music was strange; it was like hearing someone else’s choice from outside their headphones - an irritating beat! Delighted to find an excellent New Zealand Pinot noir on the wine list.
