    Fantastic Saturday morning breakfast. My last review of Bills RL requested a more efficient service to make sure food was hot when served - this time round plates and food were scorching hot. Made sure a difference. Well done Bills for this improvement. Food was delicious and well presented with just the right level of service. Thank you.

    Busy, but we were seated quite quickly, we weren’t rushed by the server, food and drinks arrived in timely fashion. Menu was a little smaller than before, however food was tasty and reasonably priced.

    Booked my sons 30th birthday at Bills Rushden Lakes on 3rd June. Was concerned the whole party would go smoothly as email communication hadn’t been great. I needn’t have worried! The staff were brilliant, good pre food orders service, no half chickens which 3 people had ordered, but there were plenty other meals to choose. They looked after birthday cake and presented it to Sam all the staff singing! Thank you so much xxx

    This particular Bill's has gone downhill from once being very good. The service and food is now well below what it used to be.

    Unfortunately this was a completely different experience to the last time I ate here for a family member’s birthday meal. Our food took over 40 minutes to arrive, they brought the 2 adult meals out but not the child’s meal out, and that came out 15 minutes later. We couldn’t eat straight away because the table had not been set, so we had to wait a further 5 minutes waiting for someone to bring us cutlery and napkins. The fries came out cold, we asked for fresh hot ones, and only got one pot to share between the both of us. My friend’s glass was dirty and then 3 times a waiter came up to us with food and drinks meant for another table. Very disappointing experience.

    There menu has changed and there's a lot less choice than before. Usually they also offer a specials lunch menu, but not today. My husband ordered steak and eggs and the eggs were overcooked and the steak like leather. Had we not been with friends, it would of been sent back. Not many things on their menu that I'd like now, so probably won't return and have always been a regular visitor.

    Awful. It was my birthday meal and there was no dome which I had booked. Our food didn't arrive as they were busy serving a larger table before use so we got up and left. Will not go there again

    It was very busy, as it was easter saturday. We had booked were seated quickly and told there would be a wait for the food. We had a starter and main but were unable to have dessert as our 5 hours parking was comong to an end.

    Pancakes were stodgy and hard and virtually inedible. Manager told me they realised this was an issue as they had changed to gluten free flour a month ago and it wasn’t working as well as self raising. I could see lots of plates with pancakes uneaten. If you know this is an issue you should be addressing it. However Manager deducted meal from total bill so was dealt with satisfactorily.

    We had been there an hour and our food had not arrived. Other diners who came in before us were already eating. Even when food arrived after we chased it was cold and had to be sent back. All in all very poor.

    Quite a disappointing experience on the whole! We ate at Bills Rushden Lakes last month and although we had to wait on that occasion for nearly 40mins at the bar for a table to become free (despite having pre-booked) the staff were great, food was good and we all left feeling satisfied with our evening. However, we ate there again last night for our son’s birthday meal and the menu had changed since our last visit, offering less variety and the quality of the dishes felt poor by comparison. One of our party asked for 2 items to be omitted from her dish but only one was, so she couldn’t eat the dish and we were still charged in full for it. For afters we had the iced tiramisu, banana split, and apple pie sundae and with the exception of the apple pie Sundae they tasted basic and unimaginative. Hopefully they realise the error of their ways and go back to the old menu!

    The service was very poor: we were waiting for a long time before someone even asked for our drinks. Then had to wait even longer before someone came to take our food order. I would understand if the restaurant was really busy but it wasn't. When our food finally arrived my friend's food wasn't even hot. I was quite disappointed as this was supposed to be my birthday dinner with my friends.

    We chose Bill’s to celebrate our wedding anniversary based on our last experience, which was wonderful….quite different on this occasion….food was average, the waitress waiting on table completed her shift (unannounced ) leaving us to find someone to serve our table & the corker was the bill….definitely not value for money, I’ve had better meals for less elsewhere. Not how I imagined spending my wedding anniversary - very disappointed
