Two lovely people looked after us at our table, very attentive but not interfering. I had the fish finger sandwich which was a bit overcooked, everything else was great.

Just awful from start to finish. Was in the restaurant 2 hours and walked out having not had more than chips because my order was wrong - twice! Waitress was useless. So disappointed as regulars at Bills but we have cancelled our next trip in December and going elsewhere after the last 2 experiences here were just awful. Need to do much, much better.

Very disappointed with our experience yesterday. The service was incredibly slow and the waitress not knowledgeable. We felt that she answered no about gluten free beer rather than finding out. Our food was very slow and nothing came exactly as described on the menu, eg my fish finger sandwich came with tomato ketchup instead of tartare sauce. It took 1 hour 40 for 2 courses which is unacceptably long.

Had a lovely evening with family and friends the food was delicious and the service excellent it wasnt too busy as we arrived for 18.30 so it was quite spacious where we sat, however one of our seats backed onto the seat from another table so no distancing was there, this didnt spoil our evening though, i would recommend Bill's to all my family and friends 😊

On arrival told there was a 30 minute wait for food. Also told they had no bacon left. Ordered coffee’s and these took so long to arrive. Meal came, eggs cold, avocado not smashed but just chopped into pieces, presentation very poor. First time and last time at Bills.

Great food, very attentive staff, definitely try to book a table in advance as it was very busy in the morning, and we came back to eat before getting our train home. Lovely place, would come back, the Bill's Festive Feast Burger I had was amazing too!

The service was just shocking. Waited over an hour for our breakfast to arrive and 45 minutes for drinks after complaining. Don’t go here if you have somewhere to be afterwards or want a quick meal.

Lovely food and very attentive helpful staff. My only concern was possibly an unpopular opinion was that dogs were present at this time in the evening and there was a “ dog smell” in the area that we were dining which personally I felt was a let down.
