Booked a table of 4 at 2.30 on Sunday.
We turned up about 5 minutes early and were asked to wait outside in the cold for about 15 minutes.

Food was really nice and good service. It’s just very poor to be left waiting outside in the cold and wet when you have booked a table.

There are way too many tables and they need to make a waiting area for paying guests

Really accommodating staff as we had two small energetic children with us. Attentive service, and the place is not so large that they forget about you. Good menu, and high quality. Would recommend

What I have come to expect from Bill’s and they didn’t let us down. Great lunch with friends with tasty food and drinks. My only criticism would be the layout of this particular venue (St Martin’s Courtyard) - every available inch is taken with tables at odd angles and places. We had best table in the house (tucked away at the very back of the restaurant) but if we had been anywhere else it would have felt crowded and have been even noisier. Also the ladies toilets need better ventilation.

We felt a bit rushed at first- into deciding and ordering quickly, then food coming within minutes, as though they really did want to stick rigidly to a limited-time sitting, but then it seemed our table wouldn't be needed again after all, so everything relaxed and we stayed for about 4 hours ordering more drinks etc. That made our night. Food lovely, nice and busy, lovely attentive staff as ever.

Really enjoyed our trip to Bills. We had theatre tickets booked for half past 7 and booked a table for 6.15pm. Although we had to wait five minutes for our table, the service was absolutely fantastic and the staff were super friendly! Would definitely visit again - two very happy customers.

We booked, but had to wait 30 mins for a table to become free…. No communication, we were outside in a queue…
Once in and seated after 40 mins, and a sincere apology from the staff, we all had a delicious meal & drinks, and the service was great 😊

First visit, food was excellent, service great as very busy. The Xmas Bills cocktail was fab, we loved it My only negative would be we were a party of 5 on a table for 4 persons therefore quite tight.

I actually refused to pay for the breakfast I ordered as it was appalling.
Overcooked rock hard fried eggs, cold mushrooms, cold tomatoes awful.

I was the first customer in so it should all have been hot and fresh

2star for not accommodating pregnant lady option to swap alcoholic drink from set menu to soft drink. Very disappointing. The food was nice but was reserved seating was squashed next to another table terrible considering the times we are in.

It is difficult to get a table off the cuff from this chain and I was expecting the experience to be amazing when we finally got a table, but it was very ordinary. I loved the styling of the restaurant but the service was slow and not very attentive. I think if they sped up a bit they would get more covers and sell more drinks if they communicated more. The food was nice but nothing special. The music played very grating (reggae/scar).
