Service slow, had to go looking for someone to take drinks order.
Waitress over familiar and unprofessional, constantly calling us “darling”. I guess some people might like that but none of our group did. Food average.
The food was good. We had the garden plate breakfast. However the service was poor. It took a long time for some one to take an order after being seated. We ordered two cappuccinos and two glasses of water at the same time as ordering breakfast. The breakfasts arrived about 15-20 minutes after being ordered. But the cappuchinos arrived after we has half eaten the breakfast. And despite asking 3 times for the water, in the end we gave up as these never arrived. Wouldn't return again.
Very quick service with extremely friendly and helpful employees
Our server was lovely but, unfortunately, this is where the good experience ended. The service of the food itself was very slow, the food was underwhelming and expensive for what it was. My wife's meal was completely forgotten and then, due to this, she was left with having to quickly eat it as we had booked a trip out and had to leave. We gave ourselves 1 hour 30 minutes to complete our meal and then 15 minutes to get to our trip location (5 minutes away). Not enough here unfortunately.
Really disappointing experience overall.
Lovely food. Very good service from Hannah B.
Staff very friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. Cater for gluten and lactose intolerance with no fuss, thank you. Food tasty and good portion size.
It’s was cold in restaurant, food ok , would have been better if warmer .
Booked ahead, lots of people were turned away on the day. Took an hour before breakfast arrived, very busy, staff running around, finished food just in time for the 90 minute slot (during school half-term holiday). Venue was very nice, all very clean, food was just the right quantity and tasted good, nice to be offered water as well. Staff very good, especially Jessica. There is a service charge of 12.5%. In all it was excellent, just the waiting time...
This would have been quite a nice dinner but we had to wait over an hour for our food to arrive.
When it did arrive it was very nice and well prepared.
The waiter apologised for the delay and took some items off the bill for us to compensate so at least they showed willing.
Service very slow
Not enough waiters
Food poor, served almost cold
Terrible atmosphere as everyone complaining about service
Where we sat was freezing cold
Not good value for such poor food
Great food, but service lets it down. Enjoyed by kids and grown ups.
Excellent service and delicious food. We even got dessert free ad it was a birthday. Fantastic!
Although the food was very nice the balance is a bit of regarding price to portion size…i had a Bills brunch breakfast which was lovely….but very small for the price (£12.50)…one sausage..a spoon of beans..2 thin bacon which equated to a mouthful, small portion of mushrooms, a small black pudding and 2 small eggs…oh and one medium potato diced and fried…very tasty but it has to balance with price…and the coffee was lovely just very small amount for £2.50..wife had 3 pancakes and a pot of tea…..altogether £28 is a bit steep.
It was good for a Saturday, staff is really friendly, food was ok
Fast service polite staff, service charge was abit high overall good meal out
Service and food was very good. We was not rushed out of the restaurant. Would recommended Bill's for food and drink.
Reserved a table at Bills via OpenTable which was easy to use and glad we did as it was packed! Despite being very busy our table was ready on time and our waiter was very good and attentive. We ordered two starters, the calamari and chicken skewers which were really good and tasty. We then had chicken main and vegetarian choice which again were really good and tasty. After a trip to a different chain of restaurant/bars the previous evening which was awful we were a bit dubious of going to a chain restaurant again but have to say the food, staff and atmosphere were really good and I would recommend Bills.
Lovely staff, food great, service great. Only downside was loud music
Food was tasty , chicken burgers & bacon burger and one child’s burger, be aware service charge added to the bill !!!
Love this restaurant, food excellent and service very good. Highly recommend as a great place to try!
The food overall was quite nice, however the food went extremely cold - within about 5 minutes of receiving it which ruined the brunch on the whole. The plates were cold and our table location had a cold draft which made the food almost stone cold before we’d even eaten half of it
A really good experience: the food was excellent, the staff friendly and efficient, great ambience.
Great service, good food!
Lovely setting, extensive breakfast menu and tasty food. Very hard-working, pleasant staff do their best to service all customers but you need to be patient as it's very popular.
Firstly, I am biased, I am a big Bill's fan. I booked on line and asked for a table on it's own, maybe a booth - we were given a booth.
The food was excellent as always and the service was really good.
We will be back.
Good teacher of meaty, veggie and vegan food though a little expensive. Nice decor and friendly service.
Food was good & well priced but service was slow on the day. We had to chase to order and then again to find out when our Mains were coming.
Food was very nice, particularly impressed with the chicken dumplings for starter. Choice of drink selection was good, large wine list and choice for nondrinkers is good. Would recommend but book in advance
Excellent all round
Expected a lot more for a £10 cocktail. Mainly a chopped up strawberry with mainly tonic water and a bit of alcohol. No umbrella, no frills, would have been overpriced at £6. Starter was decent to be fair and mains would have been quite nice if there was a bit more sauce and the chicken hadn't been so overcooked. The chicken was the main issue, it was just dry and didn't fall apart at all. Quite disappointed in the whole.
Booked online but couldn't enter as was told over an hour late due to system not registering online bookings correctly, poor unfortunately as Bill's has previously been very good.
Brilliant for brunch with friends and family - highly recommend.
Barely warm food, very average, cold coffee , would not revisit
Totally disappointed with our visit to Bills. We love going to Bills for breakfast but this time our experience was terrible.
We waited for almost an hour for our food to be told the order hadn’t gone through. So we waited a further 20 mins for the food to come but when it arrived it was served cold! Whilst we were waiting for the food we ordered drinks which took far to long to arrive. One round of drinks were knocked off the bill but I feel all the drinks and 10% should have been taken off to compensate for the terrible service and cold food.
The restaurant is located in the middle of the town. Beautiful place. We had the set menu steak and chips , chocolate pudding and buy one get one free cocktail. The steak was delicious and the pudding was the best chocolate pudding I've ever had !!! Cocktails were great too.
Best meal I've had for a long time. Definitely recommend
Staff were great. Quick service. Loved it!!!
This was the first time we have been to this restaurant. Booked a meal for 8pm on a Saturday evening. Seated and ordered starters at 8:20. Starters were brought to our table at 9;45. Not the best first impression!
Very busy but all good
The meal was lovely as usual, but having arrived within the allotted time we had to queue to enter and were then told we’d lost our table as it just outside the allotted time. She was very assertive and not helpful. A manager help out and gave us our table, so saved our special evening. We’re we’re 16 mins after time booked so no way should the table have been given away
Food was superb and the service was brilliant, even though it was an extremely busy Saturday evening, the staff were very attentive. Great atmosphere and wasn't so loud that you couldn't have a great conversation. Overall had a really great meal and would definitely recommend Bills as a great place for a meal/drinks.
Good food but slow service. Was not worth paying £8 service charge - therefore I asked for this to be removed. Wouldn’t rush back.
