    We sat upstairs for our meal only 5 ladies having a quiet meal After the meal we felt that they were rushing us out of the restaurant Added a service charge not happy about, didn’t pay it Music was increased quite loudly so we couldn’t hear the conversation with our friends Won’t be going back & recommending

    Excellent greetings and service. We sat upstairs which is lovely but it was very noisy and we struggled to hear ourselves as there were a couple of large parties dining and enjoying themselves. It didn't ruin our perfect lunch though

    We were running late for our 9pm table booking, so I did ring the number given to let them know, as instructed, but it just went to answer phone to say phones operate from 9am to 9pm. So unable to let anyone know. Thankfully it wasn’t terribly busy when we turned up 20 mins late & we were shown to our table for 10 no problem. The server was great, friendly & helpful, even tried getting us taxi’s to get us back to train station afterwards, but unfortunately unsuccessful, so had to finish off meal quickly to give us the time to walk to get on our last train home at 11pm. My meal was tasty, think most of us were happy with what we got.

    Bill's was always our go to place for breakfast but after today's visit we'll have to fund somewhere else. The waitress didn't seem too interested, the breakfast itself left a lot to be desired, on my wife's plate:- the eggs we're over cooked, the tomatoes we're cold and as for the sausage, you couldn't get a fork in it, it was so hard. On my plate:- the tomatoes we're cold the beans weren't even luke warm. There was no sugar with the hot drinks and no butter for the toast. Unfortunately Bill's in Norwich has really slipped which is sad as it was a place we enjoyed visiting.

    Had to ask for the coffee to be hot as it was luke warm- had to wave down the waitress to be served, food wasn't very warm, gluten free toast was rock hard and the sauce had gone hard on the plate so it had clearly been sitting under the lights for some time. Restaurant wasnt overly busy so not understood why we had to call the waitress to serve us. Disappointed overall.

    I’ve hadn’t been to bills for years but remembered it as a nice place. However we went to for a birthday breakfast and was really disappointed. The expensive smoothies where just poured out of bottles , so many lovely places in Norwich that make fresh smoothies straight from the fruit that are much cheaper this was highly disappointing. They also gave us loads of ice so hardly any juice. My son ordered pancakes with fruit and they had hardly any fruit more like a garnish this was so tight and very disappointing. Our muffins where ok nothing like local independent cafe near by. All tasted ship brought I don’t imagine they make the for muffins of pancakes tasted processed. And it was very expensive and the service charge doesn’t go to the staff. Really disappointing we won’t be returning.

    First impression when walking in is wow!!! The decor is wonderful, clean and greeted by friendly staff with warming smiles. Two floors for dining. Downstairs bar area is large, upstairs seating area is very large, can accommodate large groups with ease but it doesn’t feel you’re on top of the next table. Menu has wonderful yet modern take on home comfort food. Meatballs were amazing, my wife’s chicken was excellent. Very accommodating for our autistic daughter for her dietary needs. Dessert menu has a good choice. Everything was a good price, drinks menu was extensive. Very clean throughout. Staff were very good, attentive, always there to help their customers. Keep up the good work.

    It was okay. It was very very expensive for burger and chips though; portions were not very big. Paying £1.95 for cheese and another £1.95 for bacon on top of the £12 proceed is outrageous for a 2 rashers of wafer thin bacon and sprinkle of cheese. The burger buns were tough; so tough that my youngest lad couldn't even eat his, he couldn't chew through it. My burger was requested medium (as asked by the server) but it was thoroughly cooked through, and very dry. Just as dried up as my kids burgers. Why bother asking if you're just going to overcome it anyway? The fries were described as 'rosemary salted fries' but had never seen anything rosemary salted in their short, deep fried lives. The starters were tasty but again small for the price. So in all, it was below average at (best) with a high price.

    My friend and I both enjoyed our lunch at Bills in Norwich when we visited recently not so sure about the service charge being added to the bill ! That should be optional when paying the bill … we did in the end pay it but might not best time .. would like to be asked first !

    It was great overall, but the dessert I chose was disappointing; Apple pie sundae. It consisted of a tin mug with one scoop of ice cream, some biscuit crumbs, a few bits of cooked apple, a few slices of green apple and two shortbread wafers.. No cream or sauce and I wasn't impressed.

    Our experience at Bill's was wonderful. We booked our table online, without preselecting a preferred table. The hostess was warm and welcoming and showed us to a table. Being picky, I requested to sit at an unoccupied booth which hadn't been set up. The staff were extremely accommodating and made this possible. It was perfect! Our waitress was lovely- all smiles, very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Our food was delivered by another attentive waiter and the hostess wonderfully. The food was amazing! My only (teeny tiny) ism was the amount of extra virgin olive oil on the garlic flat bread- BUT, the garlic was there without being 'too much' CALAMARI WHITE- DO IT PEOPLE, THE BEST YOU'LL GET IN NORWICH!!!!!!! Eggs benedict with fries- what can I say? PERFECTION. Chef, please don't ever change that, EVER!!!!!!! Classic burger- Again, PERFECTION!! Wine... the Sauvignon Blanc was OK, but not super- it lacked a cetain signature boldness, however the Pinot Grigio delivered on crispy zesty, it was really lovely . Peach Mint Ice Tea- Always a favourite everytime! Overall, a MASSIVE thank you to ALL the staff who made my and my daughters' experience so so lovely again!!!
