Part of The Angel Hotel, an old coaching inn in the centre of town, Bill’s Guildford restaurant is very pretty. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between, this is the perfect place to take a break from shopping. The lower floor is stunning at night time, with stone floors, archways and vaulted ceilings. The restaurant also has a private dining room for up to 40 people.

Everything was great, just as it should be at Bills. However there appeared to be very little in the way of Covid security. Much less than 2m between tables, less than 1m for diners back to back. Waitress taking orders and payment at the table. Previous day went to Hall & Woodhouse in Pyford. A much more secure experience. I won’t choose Bills again until the present situation has passed.

Food and service was wonderful
Can’t believe it’s a chain seems like an independent

Bills was lovely as always, great food and friendly staff. They're following all the precautions, a separate door for entry and exit, hand sanitizer on the table.

They had no record of the Open Table booking. The food was reasonable but the hollandaise had curdled, which was disappointing.

Yummy food as always, staff were a little slow and had to ask for drinks a couple of times but apart from that it was all good!

When you're paying over £10 for a G&T, you expect it to be made with the ingredients as described on the menu. Forgetful, dreamy, clueless staff.

Out for dinner with a colleague and found Bills . The restaurant is just fantastic right from entering to the moment you leave nothing is to much trouble for the staff . The food is simply fantastic and very reasonably priced . I will definitely visit gain when down on business without a doubt

First time in Bill's after so many months and it was a real treat. People were friendly especially our waiter and the food was, as always, delicious. We'll be back very soon.

The service was very slow, we waited twenty minutes to ask if we would like a drink. There was no social distancing. Temperature was checked at the door that was it. The wait for our meal was about 35/ 40 minutes. Waited a while for the bill, wasn’t asked how our meal was. Food was nice but overall disappointing compared to previous experiences. People that came after us were waiting a similar time just to be asked for drinks etc so overall I like Bills but after this visit I wouldn’t recommend bills Guildford branch ,compared to other Bills branch’s I have visited

Good food as always. Service was slow but it was a Friday night and they were short staffed. The only disappointment was that it was a Birthday and they were forewarned. I rather hoped for a bit of fuss, maybe over dessert.

Lovely food and friendly staff. Just a little bit embarrassing having to have your temperature being taken after walking up Guildford high street as ours were too high and we were asked to wait 5 minutes to cool down! Quick service.

Lovely food and dining experience, our waiter was super lovely. Bill's have a good sense of ensuring your dining experience is still enjoyed whilst being mindful of COVID-19 procedures and protocol.

Tables and diners unfortunately not socially distanced at all. Surprising how little effort is made to be health conscious other than taking temperature at the door and some foul smelling hand sanitiser on the table.

I normally really enjoy Bill's and given the current Covid issues it was quieter than normal. I expected that it would be an easy experience but sadly not.

The food wasn't very hot, there was no butter for the toast we had to ask for it, the pancakes were quite cold and smothered in maple syrup - last time I had them it was on the side so its either down to chefs choice or its changed from about a month ago. Mum ordered a 2nd latte which was forgotten, and the staff dropped and smashed plates of food twice while we were there.

All in all not great on this visit. The waiter was pleasant though.

Service slow
Food was cold and the toast was cold and they used the crust slices from the load so the bread was tough and cold. Pancakes were cold and dry

Very good breakfast in Bills, glad we booked as it was busy when we arrived at 10am. The service was very prompt and attentive, without being rushed. Good choice of food with some interesting vegetarian options. The food came quickly and was well cooked. Recommended!!

I was pleased to find the spacing between the tables was good, which in present times is an important consideration for me. The menu was great and the food very tasty and well presented. Service was pleasant although a little slow, although not enough to spoil the experience.

The biggest downside was the state of the loos, which could do with refreshing. I would have appreciated paper towels as they are more hygienic and the taps are the twist on/twist off type.

I had my first date with someone at Bill's Guildford and, as I was first to arrive, the waiters/waitress were very attentive and let me pick where to sit as it was quite quiet on that Thursday night. I knew they were watching out for me which was really heart-warming as I felt that I was in a safe environment and that they were there for me if the date turned sour (it actually went rather well, which is good). The service was excellent and I can't praise the staff enough! Will definitely return again.
