Food and atmosphere fantastic. Not happy about the service charge added to the bill. Although it says optional, the waitress just put the total amount including the service charge in to the card machine.

We ordered two traditional breakfasts and pancakes for my daughter . After ordering we were told there was no pancakes left, so we ordered a burger and chips for my daughter. She said it was tasty and the chips were lovely but the burger was black and hard. We weird over an hour for the breakfasts to come, they had forgotten our order and when it finally came after my daughter had finished her food , our breakfast was cold . Our tea came just after we ordered , this also came cold and we couldn’t drink it with our breakfast . Staff members were very friendly however we asked the same member of staff in 3 occasions for sauce and she forgot .

Lovely venue, staff and atmosphere 😁did think the menu was limited…….however, our food was delicious…..my meal wasn’t quite possibly the best chicken breast burger I have had….the chicken breast was moist, succulent and so tasty….as were other members of our party’s meal…….the reason for 4 stars was the awfully steep staircase for us customers and one of the waitresses fell down a few steps and a bit of the broken plate hit one of us in the party……no damage done to waitress or friend but staircase an accident waiting to happen and needs addressing 😬

Nice spot, good range of food options, excellent service. Didn’t have the Viognier we wanted, but let’s chalk that up to Brexit.

Excellent food in a friendly restaurant. The desserts in particular are well worth trying (the carrot cake doughnuts were delicious!). There was a bit of a mix up with our mains being ready too soon so we had to skip our starters, but the waitress dealt with it very well and the service other than that was really good. Overall would recommend.

We had a lovely late lunch on Sunday 19th of September.
All staff were very attentive but a special mention to Christina. ( hope that’s her name) she was excellent and must get the credit she most definitely deserved.
Bills is always a good choice for us as you know you will get good food and service.
Thanks and see you again soo.

The food was excellent, perfectly cooked and well presented.

Our designated waiter Will was very professional, courteous and friendly.

Food was brought out with minimal waiting, especially since we were there at a busy time on a Saturday night.

Only issue was with the on-line table booking, tried to make a booking for that evening in the morning, booking service said "No tables available ".
Tried again at 5pm and got a table for 7.30, on arrival tables inside were quite busy, but plenty of room outside, suited us brilliantly as weather was good.

First time at Bill’s, not disappointed, the food was great, wife had the sea bass which was really tasty, I had the steak which was really well cooked. The service was quick and efficient without being pushy. I would definitely return and can recommend Bill’s. Thanks

Service was a bit slow considering it was very quiet but in their defence they may have just not been rushing us. We were going to have dessert but had to catch a train and in the end ran out of time to order it. Food over priced for what it is and not a huge choice on the menu.

Very nice food, good menu and reasonable value for money.
Our waitress was lovely, very pleasant, but when we asked for a jug of water on the table we were told we dont do that we top up your glasses.. except we had to keep asking.. We'd prefer a jug on the table please..

Otherwise very good, we would go back there.

We go to Bills tons, normally this one has great service but it was really poor on this occasion, it was lacking any friendliness and attention. We waited ages to order, ages to get out drinks, the sparking water was warm, I asked for some ice and said why and they didn’t give a rats bottom, the food was thrown at us and the young girl raced away before we could ask for anything. The food was ok, normal decent food but the service was terrible. Probably wouldn’t want to come back to this Bills again. The one down on the bay is must friendlier.
