Crumbed chicken breast, creamy coleslaw, chipotle mayonnaise, tomato, sesame bun & rosemary salted fries

Loved our burgers. Staff shortage at first but waiter was so accommodating and helpful- made us feel very special.
Will be back!
Really nice brunch for not a whole lot of money. Would go again!
All was good but our waitress looked like she didn’t want to be there. No smiles or chatter. Told us we couldn’t order breakfast but it wasn’t yet 11.30am.
Has a lovely evening, only downsides
Broccoli was cold
Music too loud and lightening to low
Like to see what I’m eating 😂 we didn’t complain about broccoli as our guess were 30 mins late and you guys didn’t rush us ! Age range from 50 till 11 yrs old
Food was fantastic, I’m particular the gluten free menu. I mentioned I was coeliac and there was no fuss, no “oh I’ll have to get the manager” which is great because there’s nothing worse than holding up everyone else’s order. Everyone was super friendly and polite, and there was a really great atmosphere.
I’ve marked it down on sound level slightly because we went in at 6:30 to avoid evening drinks but found ourselves lip reading each other but that’s not a big deal.
The only “downside” was the toilets really as they smelt quite bad and were lacking in toilet roll. However, that’s a small price to pay for the fab food and service. I’ll definitely be visiting again!
Staff was very friendly and great environment. However service was very slow especially when it gets busy.
Great decor as ever.. fab Good Times offer.. free beers (3) and wine(2) tasty fish pie .innovative dessert.. chocolate flowerpot cheesecake with chocolate soil and edible flowers.. lovely waiter .... Nice music played by dj... fab evening....
The food was cold, and a bug was in the salad. We informed the manager who then took the cost of my meal and a Diet Coke off of the bill.
Considering such a serious issue, I wouldn’t go back.
I would have expected no bill at all and free desserts for such things!
It’s really put me off :-/
The food, staff and atmosphere could not be faulted. However I was quite shocked by the condition of the ladies toilet. You cannot force customers to flush the loos and keep the cubicles tidy. The staff need to keep an eye on them.
Lovely place, Love the food, Good Service Highly Recommend
I visited with my husband and took our two dogs. It’s great to have somewhere to take dogs. We both had pancakes which were a really good portion size.
Had breakfast at Bill's in St Albans for the second time and am happy to say it was as good as first. Good, friendly service and well cooked food in a good location.
Place was nice but service was slow. Had to wait at least 10mins to be seated and had to search around for a service person each time we needed something, including requesting for the bill.
Bills has nice food but I was disappointed as the cauli butternut squash dish whilst very nice had very little cauli in it. The red wine was nice and the staff were lovely. Some dishes looked a little sparse for example the chicken skewers meal looked as if it need something else in the plate. The child's macaroni cheese was very basic. I would go again as it was a really nice place to meet friends with some lovely healthy menu choices
Very nice breakfast , friendly staff taking order and serving food all good .
great all-round - food was lovely - need to do deserano tho!
Was meeting a friend hadn’t seen for very long time so we were busy chatting and super slow to look at menu order etc - the staff were so lovely patient and did not rush us at all ! Made for a lovely catch up thank you
Our 'second return' after lockdowns and it definitely didn't disappoint.
Great place to visit, menu is good and reasonable for a lot of things. Decor is fab!!
The food was fantastic and the team were great - really pleasantly surprised how good it was and will be back! That would make a good line in a film!!!
Great service and the food was very nice. Enjoyable evening.
The staff was very attentive, helped us sit in a quiet spot, provided my son with colouring sheets and took our collosal spillage in their stride, moving us to another booth and getting us new drinks.
The food was good and just as we ordered.
Anywhere that does gluten free burgers and let’s you take the dog in the garden gets my vote
It’s always a lovely experience starting my day with Bill’s fluffy pancakes for breakfast. Always delicious, with bacon, fruit and maple syrup.
We had a delightfully tasty dinner served by very attentive staff. The Carrot Cake Doughnuts were a great recommendation from the waiter. They will be eaten again.
It was late when we visited during the week. The staff were sparse even though they weren’t busy. The disabled toilet wasn’t kept clean.
Outside they had an offer which was visible as you entered saying if you mentioned quoted a saying you could have free drinks but there wasn’t a sign inside for everyone to see, so drinks were expensive.
I had booked it as a special celebration but there was no fuss or ‘special service’ so it was disappointing.
Great team and lovely food.
Good menu, great food, great service. Highly recommend.
Very consistent. Good food at a reasonable price served by friendly professional staff.
We had a lovely meal here on my son's graduation day.
Service was quick and good and the food delicious.
Food was absolutely beautiful, well presented and tasted great. The service was outstanding and I would definitely come again.
- only criticism being the print is a little small on the menus so bring your glasses!
The quality of the food is excellent with the added bonus of arriving piping hot. The overriding aspect of Bill's though is the excellent service received by the staff, who are extremely professional and friendly.
Had a really enjoyable evening with a fantastic server who was incredibly attentive considering how busy it was
I have been to Bill’s many times and it never disappoints, brought our dog along which is great as not many restaurants are dog friendly, food was excellent as always.
Lovely staff and super accommodating for our group x
Food ok, had to ask three times for a glass of water and an order came without fries, but our waitress was delightful just rushed I suspect short of staff like everywhere at the moment.
Took our grandchildren service was slow they brought children’s meals long before ours which was not good for keeping them occupied whilst we ate. Bill was overcharged until I queried. Food good
Nice food and good serivice
First time at this restaurant. Went on Sunday early evening. Food was nice. Only issue was there was 5 of us and only 4 meals were brought up so my daughter was left without hers whilst we started eating. She said as a result her fries were less hot, which if you like extremely hot food is a small issue.
Drinks like all restaurants are very overpriced. Desserts slightly overpriced. Flower pot dessert was tasty and different in presentation. This needs addressing. As a result you only order one.
Struggle with bills as the standard drops restaurant to restaurant. The food was ok but everything was pretty slow.
