I had the chicken skewers as a main meal that said it came with grilled flatbread, but came with a plain cold wrap !! I did mention to the waitress who told chef but the reply was it’s the same thing ?? I don’t think so. So was not happy.

Very good food, service was smooth and friendly despite being quite busy. On a warm evening eat outside if you can, people watch and relaxing with great food and drink.

Excellent allergy friendly service - I was asked unprompted if anyone on the table had an allergy, that was noted on our order and my food arrived with a little wooden pick in it saying allergies which made me feel reassured that the kitchen were aware and it was safe for me to enjoy!

Went for breakfast with 2 friends . I am not a choosy person when it comes to food and live trying new things. One of my friends is s vegetarian and was very disappointed in the choice of breakfast s. As she does,nt like a lot of plant based food her choice was limited. No vegetarian sausages etc.. She was disappointed I,m sorry to say. As I love breakfast at bills. Maybe they should upgrade the menus for different dietary requirements.

A convenient place to eat at West Quay, staffing levels are good considering the pandemic climate. Food hot and tasty, especially the doughnuts!

Service was far too slow, although staff were friendly. Music was far too loud and table was next to a member of staff cleaning cutlery and throwing it in the tray!

This was our second time at Bill's and we found the experience every bit as good as the first time. The food is well prepared and served quickly. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is just right for a romantic meal or a family get together. Prices are reasonable too and there is a good selection of food available. Thoroughly recommend!

First visit since lockdown and was disappointed with the food compared to the price. £30 for 2 people for a breakfast and coffee each is a lot. Tried to use NHS discounted but was refused, coffee not particularly warm, won’t be going again soon.

Amazing service, very accommodating as they allowed us to stay until closing despite being busy. Staff very polite and did not have to wait long to be served or for the food or drinks.

We mostly enjoyed the food although my partner had what was supposed to be a sharing plate, for his main course. It was listed as a sharing platter under main courses. It wasn't very good value at all and if two people had shared this they would still be hungry afterwards.

Staff were very attentive and helpful and the service good.

We were very disappointed to find that quite a large service charge had been added to our bill at the end of the meal. We prefer to pay for good service if we get it, not to be forced into being forced to pay the service charge.

Visited early 17:30 nice table in quiet area enjoyed starters then a group of 12 females arrived and it was like sitting in a zoo. Pity 'cos there was plenty of tables for 2 in less populated areas. Pity as the food was great and we didn't want to make a fuss to be moved. Have visited before lockdown when the place was packed and we have a nice table where the overall noise was acceptable.

My wife's food was OK but mine was overcooked and not very warm.

Although the restaurant was largely empty when we arrived we were seated right outside the toilets at the back.

The atmosphere was OK until a large party arrived and became rather noisy.

Absolutely the best meal we’ve ever had on a night out. Absolutely every bite was full of flavour! The veg was cooked to perfection and the steak was exactly as ordered. It was tender and succulent, full to the max with flavour and not a single scrap was left. We would absolutely recommend Bills and wouldn’t hesitate to book again for any occasion in the future. Our server Emma was attentive, without being over baring although it was busy. Orders arrived in good time and drinks were quick to come when order. Excellent service. Excellent food and excellent evening. Thank you Bills.
