    Food was great and the atmosphere was great. Service was a bit slow but we were not in a hurry to go anywhere. I would go there again.

    We went to Bill's for a special occasion and very much enjoyed ourselves. The food options are more interesting than the same standard options at similar chain restaurants. The ambiance and decor were just right. I very much enjoyed my Chilli and Honey Chicken burger special. And my wife really enjoyed her half-chicken. Even the side salad was that little bit different to what you might expect at a similar restaurant. We have been to Bill's quite a few times now and have found the ambiance, food, price and staff consistently hit the spot each time. I would highly recommend for dinner with friends and family.

    3adults and 3 hungry children. Who would any normal person prioritize. Waiters brought adult starters and decided to bring the kids food 20 minutes later with adult mains. Kids were literally hotting their heads on the table, one of them fell asleep… Inexcusable. Not to mention they completely forgot one of the mains as by that time this was the least of our problems. Still charged it though. Will never go there again

    Really disappointed with our lunch today. Good was really late and cold and wrong when it arrived. No plates for starters. Very poor attention to detail and service and very expensive for what it was.

    Our second visit here for breakfast in two weeks - a bit quieter than Mothers Day but still most tables taken so glad we booked - met at front door by Teresa who remembered us from the previous week (she must see hundreds of people so very impressed !) and was very friendly giving us a table with extra room as I had a cast on my leg - and came back a few times to check everything was good. Served by Hannah and Daniel who again were very friendly and professional - the coffees were excellent and large and much better value than in various shops in St Albans ! Breakfast food was also as last week plentiful and tasty - and good value Not rushed to finish and stayed for nearly 2 hours Would I come here again ? Yes definitely

    We had eaten at Bills a number of years ago and it wasn’t great. I don’t know if they have new Managment but we had a really good lunch. The service was great, the food was well cooked and presented and the atmosphere was lively but not noisy. Would recommend and we will return

    I ordered the Mother’s Day prawn and crab linguine. It was stated to be in a “creamy tomato and chilli sauce”. I couldn’t taste even a hint of chilli, and when I told the waiter, he said that it wasn’t meant to be hot. Chill it doesn’t need to set your mouth on fire, but there definitely was none in this dish. I was brought chopped red chilli to put into the dish which then took it to the next level! I’m assuming this is what it should have tasted like if it was made as it should have been. Both my children ordered burgers. We changed the order for my son to an adult burger. We were then bought a child burger and an adult burger, with the child burger being given to my nearly 12 year old daughter? No offer of correction was made for this mistake which was not ours.

    Food was cold and tasteless Buttermilk chicken burger was cold, dry and lacking in any sauce. Really disappointing Kids ‘mash’ was awful - clearly made from powder. Disgusting. Only thing that stopped us from complaining was that we were on a tight turnaround for a train. Utterly disappointed

    Nice food and good service. Menu has become a little limited (choice of 3 different types of chicken, in the main course) and pricy. The acoustics are awful - the place is quite loud.

    Love the decor, a great mix of luxury and rustic. We were able to choose where we sat which was lovely as there are a few clever different seating options. Friendly informative staff. The food was amazing, so many different twists on unusual combinations, it was great. The strawberry flower pot dessert is a must.
