Light and airy during the day, Bill’s Watford restaurant is open all day and into the night, with a mix of quiet booths and sharing tables. In the evening, we turn down the lights, light the candles and let the candelabras twinkle.

    Disappointed by the menu after we haven’t been for a while. Slow service and didn’t seem in a rush to serve us. A very friendly waitress in the end and mostly yummy food. Not sure we’ll be rushing to go back.

    Unfortunately our experience was not as we would have hoped. I had visited Bills before and the service was not wonderful but we thought we’d try again. There were 8 including my 2 year old granddaughter, the service was awful, we seemed to wait ages for the main course, one meal was incorrect, they did not serve my granddaughter until we had all nearly finished and she was crying for her food. I feel a child should be served first. The manager did remove it the child’s meal from the bill, but we will be unlikely to visit again

    Service was awful Waited 30 mins for bill and had to ask 3 times for it Could of easily walked out without anyone knowing The young boy working there clearly had no clue what he was doing and was like a lost puppy The food was exceptional though and great value for money

    It was good, coffee is always cold and very milky quite a lot of chocolate is added to the coffee which makes it taste more like a mocha. Food was cold when arrived.

    Lunch was lovely the chicken skewers were tasty and mixed grain salad and tzatziki were all really nice. I had a glass of rose wine and ended the meal with a latte. I’d recommend Bills for lunch to anybody

    We asked for a Kir as a pre-dinner drink and the bar staff had no idea what it was. The prosecco we then ordered came at room temperature. Very poor.

    Birthday meal out. Lovely food and good service. Their non-alcoholic drink options are especially good. Restaurant quite noisy, so it wasn't brilliant for my slightly deaf parents. Staff all sang happy birthday to my daughter, which was very thoughtful

    First time out with friends in 18 months. As always food was outstanding. Service was good albeit a bit slow again as usual. A little gem with a few tweaks! We had the set menu, a real bargain & did not disappoint! I would highly recommend this place!

    Went for pre cinema dinner and decided to go ahead with a set menu and some wine. Restaurant wasn’t too busy and there were only 2 waitresses plus one barman. We did wait a bit to be served but it genuinely looked liked the waitresses were busy the whole time. Service was nice and food hit the spot as well. Bills is one of the restaurants I keep coming back to, nothing fancy but good quality food in reasonable price

    Friendly staff who served us straight away. The food took approximately 15 minutes to arrive and it was fabulous, very tasty. The desserts were equally as good and overall the atmosphere was relaxed with pleasing décor which added up to an enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.

    Went for breakfast as had done in the past. Chose the Traditional English breakfast but when it arrived there was no bacon so had to request this which came quickly but was just three very small slices not really proper rashers. The sausage tasted odd more like a vegetarian one, little or no flavour, same with the poached eggs, watery and little taste. Overall not impressed. Service was friendly and good so no complaints there, just the quality of the ingredients for my meal needs improving. My wife and a friend both had eggs benedict which was fine apparently.
