    Was surprised by the 12.5% service charge that was automatically added to the bill for our party. Guess I must have missed it in the very tiny small print when booking.

    My lobster and seafood pasta was very watery and did not have much seafood in it. Both of my friends ordered steak which were dry and the food arrived almost cold. Was overall disappointed with the food since it has been good when I've been there before.

    Went back for the Cinnamon doughnuts & coffee. Nice to hang out & watch the night draw in on a Sunday. Again, clearing up service was a little too quick but they didn't seem to mind us hanging out there which was good. There was a lull before evening dining.

    Back for brunch with a friend. Tried something different but wasn't too great. However, enjoyed the cinnamon doughnut & coffee treat...yum. downside, clearing up service was a little too fast, we had barely finished eating.

    Really enjoy the hearty breakfast but a bit disappointed with my Bloody Mary's. order on this visit. Firstly, it didn't quite represent the offer but more so, they didn't have the basic ingredient which they failed to tell me (the celery in the drink) until I chased them. I would have preferred that they were upfront about it. Don't forget, customers can be understanding.

    They have updated the menu since our last visit and there seems to be a lot more healthy food? The idea of a mini dessert is a triumph! More restaurants should do this.

    Overall happy. We've been a few times and this visit was average. Dirty glass and fork, but quickly rectified. Service was a little too quick, felt rushed, we were in and out in an hour with two courses. Lovely food and polite friendly staff.

    Lovely food but music far too loud and not easy listening. Also, I’ve always been able to book a preferred table when I visit with friends but was told today that they don’t reserve tables. That’s new, or maybe the previous Manager was more accommodating.

    Had a great meal here, very good service and good food. The music was a bit loud/ hectic at one pint but seemed to calm down a bit after the first pint of peroni 😀. This place is a safe bet and usually always gets it right when I’ve been here. I will be back soon !

    We often assemble here for family gatherings. On this occasion our grandson was taken ill and caused a mess. The staff were outstanding they shown concern, compassion and understanding and nothing was too much trouble, we are very grateful for the values and behaviour displayed and plan to return when our grandson is well again.

    The food and facilities were good. I have no major issues. The service was ok but could have been better. Food was obviously waiting a while to be brought out. We both ordered burgers and they took about 25 min to come out. Chips were barely warm and burger the same. Had to try and get the attention of servers a few times. They were friendly and food tasted good. Was it worth the price? No. Burger was so big we had to just use cutlery to eat it, what's the point? Would I go back? Maybe but not a special trip.

    I love Bill’s and go regularly. The food was amazing as usual but the service was very slow and the restaurant wasn’t even that busy so was a shame. But I will still come back I just expected the high service they usually provide.

    Having been for breakfast on a couple of occasions previously, we were slightly disappointed with this recent visit. The food was brought well in advance of the coffees and was stone cold which suggests they had prepared dishes in advance of orders to beat the rush. Although we rarely complain, we did send it back and it was replaced with a luke warm version some minutes later; still in advance of any coffee. Wouldn't go back. A 'cold' hot breakfast is not ideal!

    We had a very good experience dining at Bill’s last night. Though the service was a bit slow, staff were always helpful. I was served with a lukewarm cup of tea but they were accommodating when I asked for a pot of hot water. The food was really good - taste, portion and presentation. Everyone on our party had nothing to complain about it. I had the sea bass curry and it was to die for 👍🏼 We have been dining at different Bill’s locations and the standard of service has been consistent. Hence we don’t hesitate coming back.

    Waitress was very abrupt and didn’t point out that the service charge of 12.5% had already been added so paid before realising Some of food was also cold so would never have paid this amount if known in advance

    Amazing food Staff were really helpful and friendly Food service was slow though but they were busy and when we said we were going to the cinema to see a film so we ended up being pushed for time. They did chase our order up with the kitchen. Did think adding at 12 1/2 % service charge was a bit much. But it wasn’t obligatory and we just gave our own tip.

    Shame they have a very limited menu on a Sunday, although the burgers were very good. They really need to bring back the Fish pie as it was their best meal by far
