    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.

    Service from arrival and greeting, to exit was excellent. Very professional and friendly staff. All the staff knew their roles and worked seamlessly together. 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.

    Second time at Bills for brunch and had traditional breakfast. While the serving of the two breakfasts ordered where slightly out of sync, the food was very tasty and also hot. Sourdough toast was great.

    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.

    From the moment we arrived to our final goodbyes, we were met with enthusiasm and positivity from the hosts as well as attentive and friendly staff throughout our meal! Seating was perfect, allergies were catered for in a very individual way, the food was simply superb! Tables were cleared in a timely fashion but not so fast that you thought you were being rushed and we were checked on throughout our stay. Our table was tucked away as requested, the music suited the environment and you could hear and feel a happy vibe throughout the restaurant, Bill’s has remained my favourite place to eat and this visit didn’t do anything to dampen my mutual enthusiasm to visit again and again - HIGHLY recommended :)

    Yet another successful visit to Bill’s. Food delicious and I like the new changes in menu. Unfortunately we two were placed alongside a table with many people so the noise level was too high. Service friendly and efficient although rather slow. Otherwise excellent.

    Food was very nice if a little pricey. Service was good & staff were very polite. Only downside for us is that we were sat next to a table which was extremely loud. We could hardly hear each other at the table due to the volume. Think the wine was flowing! It was a relief when they got their food!

    Normally Cote Brasserie is the choice for Mother’s Day Brekki but I have seen many good reviews on Bill’s so thought we’d give it a go. What a lovely place, ambience and amazing food and my 8 year old loved his breakfast. Great value, very welcoming and we will definitely come back 🥂
