    We love Bills but unfortunately 5 of the 6 of us had sea bass which was really over cooked and as a result, very little fish on it and it was really crispy. We didn’t send it back as we were out for a birthday and didn’t want to wait longer but did tell staff. The service was friendly and good value but the poor mains was out of character for Bills. The rest of the food was lovely and someone who had a different mains was very pleased. We will return and try a different dish!

    The waiter responded very well to my feedback that my food wasn't pleasant. As a customer, it always feels daunting to raise issues so it was really nice to be heard and for my feedback to be validated. We weren't intending on having desert but when the waiter came and told me that he / kitchen agreed the dish was under par and that it would be removed from the bill, it made me feel good about having said something and we stayed for a very nice desert that we would have had otherwise.

    We always enjoy bills. Unfortunately service wasn’t great, not very attentive after initial welcome. My food wasn’t particularly warm, but I couldn’t get the attention of any staff so I thought it best to eat before it got even less warm!

    Second time to Bill’s Norwich, and it was as good as our first. Food is really tasty and well presented, great portions. Good option for vegetarians. Decent house wine. Standout service from our waitress. We just really enjoyed it, group of 4 friends on a Saturday night.

    Really lovely place to eat in the middle of Norwich shopping area. Staff are amazing. We go fairly frequently and have never had any complaints. This visit the food was not hot, but the waitress changed it for us immediately and the manager/front of house gentleman was very apologetic. He also took the charge off the bill for the two sweets we ordered. Impressive customer service as we were not spending a fortune there. The waitress also, on hearing it was a birthday lunch, added a candle to one sweet and sang happy birthday. Well worth a visit to this restaurant.

    First time here and pleasantly surprised. Staff attentive but not overly. Manager went through the allergy contents and when not sure went to the kitchen to find out. Meals arrived quickly and all tasted lovely. Dessert Bill's Plant Pot was especially nice. Nice surprise at the end for one of us because of a birthday, thank you.

    Always love Bills and although we were running a bit late the staff were welcoming and showed us to our table. I was excited to not miss the breakfast slot as I really wanted the pancakes with fruit. Really lovely but a bit dry as not enough syrup but would of liked some fromaige frais or yoghurt maybe.

    Always enjoyed bills before but when coming recently looking around there was loads of dust of light fixtures, we were sat under the stairs which when looking up all the dust above us was kinda gross. Waitress was nice but randomly brought water to us at the end of our meal? No staff members wearing masks and the fish finger sandwich? Not good, tiny bits of cod in hard sourdough wasn’t good. Very disappointed

    Would always recommend bills however our starter of tortilla chips was a disappointment,they were stale so inedible. Server brought another portion which were also stale. Fish pie for main was lovely though and when the bill arrived after a gentle reminder the server removed the tortilla chips and we got a free cocktail as way of an apology .. we will be backed the redeemed themselves!

    The service was lovely, the food was relatively good and plated nicely. I ordered and paid for the most expensive steak on the menu and it was a really bad and cheap cut of meat full of fat and sinews and really tough.
