Had great customer service, but was disappointed that we didn’t get offered a complimentary drink or something for my daughter’s 17th birthday. Also I would have expected the smoothies to be garnished with a piece of fruit as they didn’t look anything special.

I’m not tempted to come again, but the staff were extremely efficient and pleasant which is why I gave a good score .

We used to love coming to bills however our most recent visit was not as good as usual. While the waitress was lovely, the food was over cooked and tasted different to what we remembered. The waitress noticed that we didn’t touch a single burnt sweet potato fry but didn’t ask a single question.

Having been to Bill’s in peterborough and having had such a good experience I am really disappointed with the service. I had booked a table for 11am for brunch. It was busy so understandably we had to wait before we got seated. The staff were literally running around like headless chickens, no actual person on the door just people walking past saying they’d be with us shortly. Finally sat down and was asked if we would like some water to which we replied yes. No water. Took a further 20 minutes for water to turn up. Friends got their coffee I waited again only to be told there was no coconut milk for my latte. Then my friend couldn’t have the juice she wanted because they’d run out. Ironic seeing as a waiter walked through the restaurant carrying 4 cartons of orange juice. Food came out on time but you expect a level of service and it just wasn’t there. Let me be clear, our waitress was lovely and very apologetic. When we aired out issues she arranged for the drinks to be taken off our bill but I wouldn’t return and wouldn’t recommend especially at brunch.

I would describe the experience as ok, I was over charged for food and in addition to this they added on a service charge of almost £8 for 1 adult & 2 kids which I think is over the top. I wouldn’t rush back.

Food wasn’t as tasty as we were expecting. Mac and cheese very bland and way too much dressing on the salad.

After visiting Bills a few weeks ago for breakfast, we were really disappointed as the food was cold and not what we would normally expect from Bills, however I went back yesterday for lunch and it was lovely food, service, everything just what I would have expected as always.

Decent food for family lunch especially with fussy kids. Just watch out for 12.5% service charge on the bill. Not overly impressed with service as could have asked us how our meal was or if we wanted more drinks.

We have been to Bill a few time before we have never had an issue. Normally everything has been perfect.

However on this occasion our drinks were bought to us and order food order was forgotten about. My husband had to get up and go to the bar area to make them aware we had been waiting 40 mins.

She assured us it is now on its way.
10 mins after when it finally did reach out table the plate was rushed toast was burnt.
Not their normal standard.

We saw tables around us were getting their orders quiet promptly having ordered after us


Very disappointing visit.

Service was really slow and food was expensive, although we appreciated the cheap drinks selection which was a pleasant surprise. Service was slow due to understaffing issues. Ambience was alright although nothing special.

Expect a friendly welcome at Bill's, all the staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The food is very good and well presented, especially Bill's flowerpot dessert, it's a work of art. My friend and I had a wonderful lunch and would recommend giving Bill's a try.
