I haven't been to a Bill's before and was pleased it was easy to book. The food was good and service was good. The children really enjoyed it. I would return.

Really nice meal and service as usual. Cannot recommend this establishment enough. If you can sit outside in the sun then you definitely should. Looking forward to going again.

Service was slow and inattentive. The waitresses appeared inexperienced. The proof of ID request for my 20 year old daughter from a waitress who was under 20 was bemusing and delayed our meal as my daughter went to fetch ID. Perhaps as a consequence, we were the last people in the restaurant, and when we left, there were no staff to be seen, no one to thank us or wish us goodnight. A strange experience.

Friendly attentive service from our arrival until departure. Food was served quickly and was tasty. Drinks are a little on the pricey side, so we only had 1 each. Good time was had though and we will definitely return.

overall amazing. our waiter was perfect and very helpful. especially with recommending drinks!!! Beware of service charge that doesn’t actually go to the waiter/waitress. we room ours off and have cash - much happier with this option personally! Also, specifically wrote on review that it was me never if parties birthday and a little something would have been appreciated. however even after reminding the man who welcomed us in that it was her birthday we received nothing. however this didn’t ruin any of the food and we had a lovely time!!

Friendly staff welcome you and show you to your table. The order was taken swiftly and our food arrived in very good time considering the restaurant was busy. The food and drinks were hot and a good portion size. Slightly pricey bit overall a good experience.

Booked this last minute on a Friday night. Had my elderly mother with me, so needed a bit of 'special consideration'. Bill's stepped up to the plate. well played.

The atmosphere in Bills is great, the food lets it down at night. The halloumi fries were Ok, over priced and not particularly interesting. I had a sirloin steak that I ordered medium rare. It came well down and looked like it had been reheated. They were unimpressed but cooked another which was much much nicer.

My friend ordered a salad and chips- chips were stone cold and the salad was so dry she couldn’t eat it.

They clearly wanted us to leave at the end of the evening, didn’t offer us more drinks, just the bill.

They ask what the occasion is when you book abs then completely shun it too which is odd. Waiter didn’t know what the wines were.

Overall? 5/10. Saved by the espresso martinis. Would save it for brunch dates.

Enjoyable lunchtime meal thank you. Noise level was a bit up more from usual because of an animated neighbour. A/C quite cold but not cause for complaint. Service good as usual and food tasty.

Beautiful restaurant, booked before but luckily was plenty of seats and could sit wherever we wanted so chose outside as it was beautiful weather. Service was super quick and they were more than happy to cater for me being gluten free and vegan. Food was delicious, my partner and I demolished the lot. Highly recommend here, the staff were so kind and very clean everywhere.
Had some adorable maple syrup decanters… hoping to get one of those!

Poor service - food took a long while to arrive and then we were left to it by staff. We requested an additional pot of tea which never arrived.
Food was cold and had obviously been sitting around a while before it arrived with us.
Nice setting but overall very disappointing.

Today we discovered that not all Bills are equal. We had our favourite garden plate, however this today came with watery avocado, watery eggs, watery mushrooms (added extra) and so completely soggy toast. Real shame as this is my favourite brunch plate in Bills. Maybe they need to go try Watfords to see how it's done!

Bill's used to be a firm favourite but it's changed, and not for the better. Food was very disappointing - not cooked well, even the basics eg dry burgers, uncooked chips, chewy calamari. Service was patchy, got orders wrong, not very attentive or seemingly even interested in being there. Wouldn't hurry back, there are lots of better options in Tunbridge Wells.
