    Overall, very good friendly service, the place feels very cosy and well maintained. Food waiting times were fine for a table of 8. Service charge was 12.5% which was a bit steep on a bill of over £200 so asked for this to be removed and left a tip.

    Most delicious breakfast which was amazing. Toast with hummus and avocado....tomatoes, mushrooms and 2 poached eggs....the best breakfast I've had at a restaurant. Beautiful decor and ambience. Book up. Gets busy. Catered exceptionally for diet requirements. Class 1 service.

    Very poor experience, limited menu and the minute steak was very tough. As this was part of a set menu expected to order a desert to only be told at that time what was not available. Place was very quiet and had no atmosphere. Real shame as have been to other Bill’s locations as they have always been really nice.

    Disappointing. Drinks ordered and were left sat on the bar waiting to be brought to the table - staff just stood around chatting, no urgency to serve customers. Husband had to ask a member of staff for the drinks. Food was served, staff member did. LT bring any condiments prior to the food or ask if we wanted any, he started to walk away and I had to stop him and ask him for sauces. Food was ok, nothing special, and I felt was quite overpriced for what it was. Service charge applied to bill (only 3 of us) but service was below expectation given price of food. Restaurant wasn’t particularly busy given staff were standing around talking rather than serving customers who were dining. Previous experiences have been really positive hence our return yesterday. It was my grandfathers 93rd birthday which I made reference to when booking online but no recognition of this was made during our visit. Sadly, not a place I would recommend or return to.

    Amazing pancakes again. Bills Brunch for £18 enough to be able to walk out comfortably full rather than waddle out. One of those annoying to pour "so boho" mini milk churn(please can we go back to mini jugs now?) Table service was polite friendly and efficient in delivery.

    Excellent service, primary reason for only giving a 4 was the background noise level was very high. Maybe just where we were sat. Difficult to hold a conversation with the level of noise.

    A very good meal, great service. Keep an eye on the boards out the front of the restaurant, as sometimes you can get 3 beers/house wine for free, but only if you remember the 'saying'

    Went last night food was excellent and we had the ‘good times’ deal with drinks which can’t be knocked excellent value will definitely go again . The waiter we had was lovely didn’t catch his name but the manager not so. While showing us to our seat explaining that there was a WiFi problem so no card payments could be accepted ! Quite important in this day and age as people rarely have any cash. Didn’t hear a word as facing other way whilst walking upstairs! The waiter filled us in thankfully x

    Really gone downhill. Gin menu looks great but comes with plain tonic... Not as per menu lovely gin selection and garnish but you'll be lucky to get a slice of lemon. Quality not as high. Dirty side plates, cash only, no beer on draft. Rough chavs swearing. Female staff being treated like hooters girls. Just not what it used to be.

    Considering we've been through a pandemic and are at the tail end... "We hope" all I can say is we were all very satisfied about our bills experience.. just one slight negative was we found the table a tad sticky but it didn't put us off.. I think it might've been the cleanser used.. keep it up Bill's nom nom all the way👍👍

    Table was not very clean and after watching the next table being cleaned up after the customers left, I am not surprised! I was given a dirty water glass and the drink I ordered was not available. The food was ok, the price high including service charge not good value. won't be rushing back.

    Food was not warm enough when arrived. 5 out of 6 dinners arrived with a wait fot the final dinner. When staff asked if all was ok, I mentioned the food was tepid. an offer was made to replace the garlic bread, which we declined. thisnis not the first time I have been disappointed at a Bills restaurant.
