Only reservation was the draught by the front window, there being a gap between the window and wall. Else, very pleasant with varied menu.

Good service, everyone was friendly and always nice to get some interaction with the waiting team. The festive burgers were great, took the medium cooked option and it was spot on.

I really enjoyed it. I visited here last week with a few friends and I didn’t really enjoy the meal as i was full. So I treated my mother to a late lunch and it was brilliant. Definitely will be coming back. Only issue that we had was my mums fries were cold but she really enjoyed the eggs benedict. Cheers.

food was shocking had the curry and was just not nice, very sneaky with the service charge you’d get more tips if you didn’t put it on the bill and should make people more aware that it’s on there, lady was quite snarky and rude about me not paying it they need to sort themselves out.

Been here before and enjoyed the relaxed but busy atmosphere. All good for our brunch. Very busy and bustling but OK and food generally good. They forgot the beans with two of the orders and turned up 5 mins late with two sauce boats of lukewarm warm beans. Could have complained but had finished the main dish anyway. Staff excellent and manager who greeted us was polite and very focussed!!

We were particularly impressed with our waitress Jade. We had two small children with us and she went out of her way to make sure they were happy and catered for. Her manner with them was so sweet..it was a real highlight of the lunch!
The food was also delicious

A quick early evening meal on a Wednesday night after cinema - quick service for the 2 course set menu option which suited us perfectly. Very good food and service for the price plus and our waitress was very friendly and engaging. **It was a quiet evening so service was understandably quicker. A great option when in Newbury.

Very pleased to back at Bill's again. Staff were generally pretty friendly and our server was great.
Ambience was good and the booth we sat in was comfortable and private feeling which was nice.
Starters were excellent - a mix platter to share along with large cocktail sausages - all very nice.
I had a very nice fish pie for my mains the others had chicken burgers and a steak, all of whish went down very well.
All orders were taken in a timely fashion and I wasn't aware of waiting too long for the food to arrive.
Not cheap but not horribly expensive either.
A good meal out and will definitely visit again soon.

We love Bill's! The staff are always welcoming and friendly, the food is delicious (and hot - that's very important) and the atmosphere is warm. We'll certainly be going back before long.
Just one point - and I have made this on the previous three visits - GET MORE WATER JUGS! It is absurd for a busy restaurant to have only three water jugs, obliging the staff to keep refilling instead of just leaving dehydrated customers with their own supply. For heaven's sake! It's an inexpensive but important improvement!
