SUPER slow service. It took hours of waiting. The tuna on black nachos things is always quite good but otherwise, the menu's been hacked down to mediocre and unimaginative. The drinks are absurdly small whether you're ordering a cocktail or a coke. And the deserts are all oversweet or stodgy. You could ignore all this if they didn't force a 12% service charge on you.
Very good food, nice ambiance, nice staff. I don’t like that they put a 12.5% optional charge on the bill and that makes up part of the staff salary.
We were welcomed and shown to a very nice side table. Early Sunday evening dinner. Very good steak with special offer. A couple of glasses of wine. My wife enjoyed a dessert.
Anniversary meal with friends after the racing! Lovely menu choices…great internal decor and ambience. Well worth a visit for any occasion
Fantastic place to eat. Great choice of gluten free food. Staff very helpful. Lovely busy vibe but still felt looked after. Would highly recommend.
Great food service and atmosphere
Excellent service and delicious food. Our waitress Jade T was great.
I would recommend Bills to everyone.
Went in for a brunch just before lunch started. Attentive staff and all three breakfasts were brought to us on hot plates. Had coffees and desserts too. Reasonably priced and stylish decor.
We visited Bills in Newbury on 15/09 at 6:30 and were sat just inside the door. We were served by two lovely ladies, one of whom we were told was on a trial shift, and I just wanted to say what a fantastic job she (and the lady training her) did. Honestly we wouldn’t have known she was on a trial shift if the man who greeted us hadn’t explained when we were seated. Lovely ladies, I hope she’s got the job 😁
Lovely food, great service. Would definitely come back for another meal.
Very nice and cosy atmosphere,lovely food and welcoming staff.
Bills is usually a 5 star experience for Breakfast. Sadly this time it was not.
Our drinks order was wrong. We asked three time before we got ant water.
Our breakfast order was wrong, and even on second attempt was still not right but by that point we gave up and ate it. Food took a long time to come and the breakfast was not tonthe usual standard.
I don't know what happened yesterday as usually much better. Plus, the terminology waiting staff use while we'll meaning is sexist; doing, love and sweetpea should be terms used only by those who you have a close relationship with; after all my husband was referred to as sir which seems much more respectful than sweetpea....
Good greats as always! The server was extra helpful and was eager to please. A breath of fresh air in these strange and changing times.
I love this restaurant, eaten here a few times, food is always so tasty, excellent value, and good portion size. The staff are always helpful, happy and attentive. Will visit Bills again on the future and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them
Fantastic food and service, as ever. Have eaten here for many years and never been let down, just great people.
We visit Bills in Newbury every couple of months. We ate in the square outside to celebrate my husbands birthday. It was a hot day with a breeze and we had a fairly light lunch which was delicious. Great service, overall nice experience.
Tasty food and lovely chatty staff. Very polite. If you like a steak cooked right definitely go here!
Lovely cheerful service and good breakfast food choices. Allergens were easy to find and staff were happy to adapt dishes.
Lovely to sit out the front and watch the world go by
We ate in the Garden area. A warm day for once. We all had the same - chicken skewers and crumble after. Excellent value and quality.
Very friendly staff and lots of veggie/vegan friendly options.
Great service from the moment we arrived to when we left. Makes such a difference to the whole experience
Not up to it’s usual standard. Food came before the drinks, perhaps understandable for lattes which have to be made but not for orange juice and Prosecco. Food was good although pancakes were very stodgy.
Went with three work colleagues for a welcome lunch. Service was incredibly slow despite putting a note on the booking that we were in a lunch break. Food took 40 minutes to arrive despite not being that busy. Food was nice, but a little over-priced for what you actually get on your plate and portion size. We would of had a pudding if we had time. We were there 90 mins and literally had soft drinks, main and coffee.
We dined as a group of 3. Our waiter was excellent. The best I’ve had in a long time. He is a new employee and a credit to the company already. I think his name is Max.
Food was incredible, drinks were very overpriced and disappointed to see 12.5% service charge added to the bill without asking us! Our waitress Molly was brilliant, very attentive, polite, friendly and nothing was too much trouble, a real asset to Bills and deserves a bonus!
Excellent Service - we used the 'Good Times' offer which is really good. Steak was slightly tough but given what we paid etc, we weren't overly concerned.
Usually love Bills, but the waiting service hasn’t been great on our last 2 visits. Front of house are great, but the new staff just aren’t attentive enough
Food and service was amazing and loved the decor. Only comment is that it would be nice to have more beans. Thanks so much!
Delicious food but not the choice of beers. We were served by Serena who was delightful. She was very attentive, had a lovely smile and manner. We would return again as the service and food was excellent.
Food was ok nothing special , waitress was attentive and friendly lots of children screaming around us. Not very relaxing.
We have previously visited Bill’s in Brighton and in Marlow and had splendid meals from imaginative menus. This meal was OK but from a menu that was primarily of the burger-chicken-pizza variety. OK describes the place overall, though the staff were very good.
Really attentive staff! Lovely food and great that it’s dog friendly
Lovely restaurant and very welcoming and friendly staff.
Amazing staff!! Speedy food and drinks service. Delish
Booking our table meant we got a great spot in the window. All the staff were really attentive and couldn’t do enough for us. Very impressed!
Great menu for everyone and fantastic service with nice atmosphere
All staff were very attentive. Food was delicious, will definitely be paying another visit soon.
Lovely waitress, very friendly and good at her job. You can make healthy choices with their food, and then they bring you the dessert menu!! Yum. 😂
Great meal and the service was fab too. Wish I had got the name of our server so I could give the praise he deserves!
