    Like other Bill’s restaurants this is a great place for a casual lunch. We sat opposite the front door so on a cold day bit of a draft at times. But it was a nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Particularly enjoyed the Bertie smoothie.

    food average and quite expensive. too many tables crowded together to maximise profit @ customers expense and finally a service charge ( that yes is discretionary ) BUT it shouldnt be there in the first place to challenge people to have it removed. wont be returning!!!!😏

    Really enjoyed the menu, we had salad starters, chicken burgers, and the kids menu is good value! Table was near the door and this colder day in March meant it was truely drafty! Starters were meant to come with mains, which got muddled up. They were very friendly and responsive.

    Like all restaurants everything has gone up in price but not really the quality of food it was just ok but too expensive confusion when we came in I had pre booked but 3 members of staff asked me if I’d booked then the 4th time they asked I said I had already told 3 members of staff yes!

    Love the feel and decor. Background music often far to loud, a real problem as diners shout more and it becomes even noisier. Service was perfect. My starter of Holoumi was great, my main Mac and cheese was very bland and hardly any taste. My Ice cream/ sorbet excellent. Overall a good experience.

    I had sea-bass and it was very dry. My partner had steak and chips and the chips were dry. We were given desert with no spoon’s This isn’t my typical experience, and I would still go back because I love the decor and ambience.

    We took advantage of the pancake day special offer which seemed very good value. The pancakes were aesthetically pleasing but so unbelievably dry which was very disappointing. The service was very slow - friendly - but certainly not attentive, lots of waiting around. Also no beer on tap, not an issue for me but a member of our party was a little gutted! We're unlikely to return.

    The waiter accidentally broke one of the glosses on our table. To avoid him feeling embarrassed, I said that I ll use the bathroom until the broken pieces get cleared. Unfortunately upon return, I stepped on more pieces on the floor.

    I was quite shocked at how bad the food was, especially compared to times I've been previously. The pancakes were hard, and the avocado was brown and tasted a bit off. The interiors are nice as always and the service was good, but for a place which i'd always viewed as 'guaranteed good food and vibes' it let itself down.

    I haven’t been to Bill’s in a while but always remember it as a place with something for everyone so, stupidly, did not check the menu before arriving. I was really surprised that there is no vegan main - options were limited to a burger or a salad. The service was fine if a bit slow and I did feel rushed with the waiter joking about the time limit despite the relatively quiet and empty restaurant. Probably great for meat, dairy, egg eaters - especially as I notice a new (to me) breakfast and brunch option.

    Always reliable food. Our waitress was very helpful as we wanted the cocktail of the day but weren't able to have grapefruit because of medication and she arranged them without although it was a ready mix. there is no pressure to vacate the table which is nice as we could have a relaxed meal.

    Beautiful restaurant in central Putney. Very nice atmosphere. The guy in charge is great! Other staff so so. Some of the food is amazing, the risotto was a bit soggy and needed more goats cheese. Value is ok but could be improved. Will go again!!
