Love the decor in Bill’s and the ambience. Staff are always great and really helpful. Bert disappointed that the vegan chocolate tart has been changed it used to be something to look forward to but now it’s not very nice. The new vegan burger is good, asks for vegan bacon if you don’t eat meat as strangely it comes with animal meat bacon. Overall really good.

Love this restaurant. Kids portions are very generous and tasty . I love their share platter. I had fish here twice always delicious and I love the crunchy broccoli as side and it goes well with fish .
Staff is always very friendly, in good mood .
Interior looks nice very nice but the toilet needed more frequent checks .

Went for a family lunch. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Unfortunately the food pretty average, contrary to a recommendation we received. Will try the place again on a weekday.

Excellent food, beautiful interior, friendly staff.
Unfortunately they missed my lunch off the order so I had to wist whilst everyone else had theirs. It wasn't long to wait though.
None of the staff were wearing masks.

Food took a little long to arrive. Others that arrived after us, were served before us. Very attentive, polite staff. Good atmosphere as always. Used 2 for 1 vouchers but final bill seemed a little high even with these

Superb from start to finish - a warm friendly welcome and an acknowledgement of the occasion (a birthday). The staff really took the time to understand our requirements and the service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Food was excellent as were the drinks to go with it. Felt like they really cared that we had chosen their restaurant. Have already recommended them to several friends. Prices pretty good also.
Liked the fact the music was pleasant but not too loud.

food was great the only thing was there was one rude waitress. we had our starters for about 10minutes and she very loudly spoke to the chefs and said “yes theyre still eating” which was okay but then went on to shout “she still eating her tuna tacos” in a very patronising and rude tone. my girlfriend was very embarrassed and we wouldn’t stay for dessert so we went to creams instead. disappointing

Beautiful surroundings first visit as used your buy a gift card offer. Staff great atmosphere too. Lot's of food missing from menu but that cannot be helped during these difficult times. However it was all the things we chose whilst looking through your menu at home! We chose the sharing platter which i felt needed a little more as was mainly bread. The hummus was very dry and simply smeared stuck to the bottom of the plate. I felt this should be in a separate bowl? I almost called the waiter to say it was missing when we noticed it underneath the bread! I didn't order a main course so was a little disappointed with my choice. However I did love the chocolate and caramel tart which filled me up. We will be back to try breakfast/brunch which i feel may be your speciality 🙂

The food was not good at all. Very bland. I had the chicken skewers and they were dry and tasteless. My partner had the burgers which looked ok but not the best. With the prices charged i was very disappointed with the food. The services however was great.

We know Bill's and like it enormously. We like the menu, the experience and value is always good. As young 70s it's always easierwhen we are away from young families and will mention that when we book in future. We are fans and it comes with a very firm recommendation.

Bills our fav brunch - Lovely food, lovely venue, however service let down our experience:

1. Waited 20 mins once seated for waitress to come.
2. Run out of mushrooms but not told by waitress - had to ask as they were missing to be told some being purchased and cooked. They arrived at end of my meal.
3. Asked for tap water - none arrived. Asked again and brought to table no apology. Water spilt on table.
4. Waitress seemed not very interested in being there.

Great food. Service was a little slow despite the quiet service time, especially when presenting the bill. Waited for 45 minutes after plates taken away and wasn’t asked if we wanted more drinks or the bill. Asked for it from one waitress who after half an hour still hadn’t produced it and so had to ask another.
