    Having been for breakfast on a couple of occasions previously, we were slightly disappointed with this recent visit. The food was brought well in advance of the coffees and was stone cold which suggests they had prepared dishes in advance of orders to beat the rush. Although we rarely complain, we did send it back and it was replaced with a luke warm version some minutes later; still in advance of any coffee. Wouldn't go back. A 'cold' hot breakfast is not ideal!

    We had a very good experience dining at Bill’s last night. Though the service was a bit slow, staff were always helpful. I was served with a lukewarm cup of tea but they were accommodating when I asked for a pot of hot water. The food was really good - taste, portion and presentation. Everyone on our party had nothing to complain about it. I had the sea bass curry and it was to die for 👍🏼 We have been dining at different Bill’s locations and the standard of service has been consistent. Hence we don’t hesitate coming back.

    Waitress was very abrupt and didn’t point out that the service charge of 12.5% had already been added so paid before realising Some of food was also cold so would never have paid this amount if known in advance

    Amazing food Staff were really helpful and friendly Food service was slow though but they were busy and when we said we were going to the cinema to see a film so we ended up being pushed for time. They did chase our order up with the kitchen. Did think adding at 12 1/2 % service charge was a bit much. But it wasn’t obligatory and we just gave our own tip.

    Shame they have a very limited menu on a Sunday, although the burgers were very good. They really need to bring back the Fish pie as it was their best meal by far

    Enjoyed the latest visit to Bill's the new addition to the menu of Bill's Brunch (all day breakfast) a welcome addition to the menu. Our server Jemima looked after us well which added to the experience. While the nice man that initially showed us to our table - waved a thank you and goodbye as our party was leaving, even though he was eating his own lunch. Nice friendly touch!

    The starters were delicious. I ordered lobster and seafood linguini. When the food arrived it smelled really fishy and the prawn was definitely off. My partner paid 16pounds for a very small half a chicken. They refunded my main but we still ended up paying 50 pounds. The manager apologised for my food but I didn't get the impression that they realised the seriousness of serving a customer gone off seafood. Never again

    Booked for lunch, nice atmosphere, always is, busy without being too loud. Excellent service, lovely food had the vegan dirty burger, prepare to get in a mess! But so tasty. And then the Bill's classic their mini doughnuts. Heaven!! Great service, very happy to recommend as Bill's have never let us down yet! Eaten there many many times and always fantastic.

    This was my first time having a meal in Bill's. Overall was amazing and overtook my expectation. I was impressed by the interior design and cosy vibe when I first stepped into the restaurant. The waitress treated us so kindly and patiently guided us to our table without any procrastination. The portion size of Full English Breakfast was great and tasted wonderful, also the price was reasonable. I had a firmly memorable experience in the Bill's. Thanks for all your effort.

    Bills at west quay has been a popular choice of ours. The reason for this is we have never failed to get a table, every one who works there are so friendly and with different sets of friends we visit with have all enjoyed the food.

    We felt that the menu choice was poor, predominantly burgers which we ended up having , however we did not realise that we had to pay extra for cheese and bacon. My burger ended up costing over £16 which was not worth the money. I am also not able to eat chilli so I chose the sticky duck salad which turned out to be full of chilli. It did not state this on the menu anywhere. I had to change it for soup. We would not go there again.

    Good range of standard, vegetarian and vegan breakfast options. Excellent service. Two breakfasts came too cold (avocado cooled the eggs) but immediately replaced so no issues there. Overall a very good experience and we'll be back - regularly

    I don't usually give negative feedback.... but we've been to Bill's numerous times now and always had good service, but on this occasion, were extremely disappointed. We asked for some tomato sauce and some mayo with our meals. The waiter brought the tomato sauce in a tidy dish on a tray, then we waited 10 mins for the mayo, not sure why they couldn't have been brought together. During this time, the waiter knocked the tomato sauce onto the floor which preceded to splatter all over one of our parties jackets, and some of the sauce even hit a lady on the back of the head who sat quite a way from us. There didn't seem to be any urgency that there was sauce all over the jacket or even all over the floor right by where we sat. We questioned whether they were going to at least get the sauce off the jacket so it could be worn and also clean the floor.... After a while the waiter came back and said he had spoken to his manager and offered a free drink.... It will be quote some time before we go there again.

    Came here for a date yesterday, I was seated first as I was early, my date then arrived at 2:58, table was for 3. The waiter was nice and took our orders quickly but we didn’t actually eat until 4:03 so we waited an hour for our food! It was ridiculous. The waiter didn’t even come and apologise for the delay. We had a passing Waitress come and give us our sauce which made us think the food was coming which it then didn’t. Didn’t then want to stay longer for this so asked for the bill and left. Not impressed.
