Had an amazing time at Billsons. The purple slipper cocktail is amazing. The team are super friendly and helpful, chatting to Flic on our way out was such a nice personal touch.

Lovely place to eat and socialize with family. We ate downstairs in the barrel room and it was a great area for us as we had 2 young children with us. Lots of interesting areas to inspect (viewing platform and carriage museum). All staff were very helpful and friendly. We will certainly return!

Had a very warm welcome at the door, with a history of Bilson's and what they have achieved over the last couple of years. The food is mainly burgers and the koftas are amazing. COVID-19 measures ensure a quiet atmosphere and it was nice to see procedures in place.

We are so grateful to have found this place. It is all I could hope and dream for. Cordial, gin and jazz. The staff were the stand out. So friendly especially to my five year old and the building, the drinks and the atmosphere were fantastic.

Fantastic place to visit, your staff are a credit to you.. so helpful ,friendly and nothing is to much trouble. A special shout of to our waitress Ross I wish every restaurant I went to had a lovely lady like that serving, so Thankyou Ross. My only complaint was there is not enough to choose from on the menu, so probably wouldn’t be back for the food but definitely for everything else,

The table/ bench and seats downstairs needs reviewing they are too high and feel slightly dangerous.
Not suitable for family with children.
Food and service was great.

The hostess was very accomodating to our late arrival (we called to let them know). The meal and the beers were lovely. The beef burger with bacon is honestly the best burger I've had in ages. We'll definitely be back :)

Impeccable service despite COVID seating restrictions and the previous sitting running slightly over their time. Burgers were delicious. They have limited ales on tap, but their cocktail menu is to die for. Drop by the shop to pick up your favourite cordials and spirits. Highly recommend the coffee liqueur! Enjoy.

This is a spacious venue on 2 levels catering for sit down dining or relaxed bar lounge atmosphere. Service is good and drinks well priced. The venue has a limited range of food, focussed on snack foods in the main. Worth a visit

Thus was our first visit to Billsons and it won't be our last. The atmosphere is superb.
The renovations are very well done.
At the moment there is a limited menu due to the current circumstances. The burgers are all tempting and tge Lamb Koftas are excellent.
