    Look and feel of the place fantastic. Customer service from arrival, during and end was exceptional. Food is average, and more dishes on the menu would be a plus. Drinks - very good selection but very "city prices" so expensive. Unless you just want house wine. Would recommend and would go back, but probably more for a lunch whilst shopping in the city.

    I do love the ethos and vibe of Bills. It is sadly though very chain like now. I think the food and drinks is pretty overpriced for the amount and quality. Very vinegary carrot / sweet potato purée and average tasting on the platter plate and burgers

    Very poor service, ordered drinks and meals, we waited 30 minutes no food or drinks arrived. Waitress comes over and states the kitchen had mixed up all the tickets and didn’t know who had ordered what. Tables who arrived significantly after us had meals and drinks served and we had nothing. We left, such a shame as I feel had we sat at another table with a different server our experience would have been far different.

    We've previously enjoyed eating in this Bill's. There has been a layout change and downstairs is more open. Upstairs looks similar to before with lots of tables in an open plan. Glad we'd booked as there was quite a queue on this Saturday lunchtime. Service was poor. Drinks order taken and we asked about it after a long wait. Initially told it would be coming from the bar downstairs, and a few minutes later told our drinks order had got lost! This means drinks arrived after our food. Waiting staff looked rushed off their feet and not enjoying service. Food was good. My chicken skewers were chargrilled and tasty. Overall a shame. Wouldn't now recommend this Bill's. Here's hoping it can improve again.

    I went to Bills for the first time on Friday and the food was truly delicious. I have a serve nut allergy, which normally limits where I can eat, but the staff were amazing with dealing with it and reassuring. Our table also had a fantastic waiter named James, who made the experience even better.

    Disappointed visit, sat downstairs where there seems to be an odd, off putting smell and not very clean. Covid? What Covid !! The table was sticky, the salt & pepper left on the table aren't cleaned between customers, the table next to us was given the minimum amount of wiping down between customers. All this didn't particularly help with the enjoyment of the food 🤷🏼‍♂️
