Great atmosphere, lovely shepherds pie, very friendly waitress and worth the money . Restaurant was fairly busy and our food came within 15 minutes. Nice evening can't complain.

Large booking of 10 guests easter Sunday. Very polite and accommodating staff despite us having our guests run an hour late. Very presentable and clean restaurant, food was amazing. Thank you.

Bill's is a lovely restaurant and the food was fantastic, but unfortunately our lunch was made very awkward by bizarrely bad treatment from our waitress. I think I annoyed her at the start by asking to switch fries for an alternative side, and from that moment on she was incredibly standoffish and made every effort to ignore our table. It... More

This is very close to the station which is great. There were 16 of us for lunch and we were accommodated well. The decor is quirky and different to a normal pub or restaurant. The food was very tasty. I recommend the halloumi for stater. Reasonably priced and worth a visit if in the area.

Apparently at bills an overpriced trendy eatery in upper street impossible. The hamburger was hard cold and the salad was inedible. A few dead leaves the bill was £12 fir the hamburger. And even though I was hungry it was inedible. I had avocado hummus as a starter. The portion was microscopic . Again over priced. I don't mind paying... More

We were taken to our table and attended to very quickly. I was asked if I wanted water and offered a choice of mineral or tap water. Mum had sea bass which... More

We were very disappointed with the quality of food, unfortunately we won't be returning. The avocado-hummus starter was completely tasteless and the pittas cold and hard. I had a fish finger sandwich which I couldn't eat and left the restaurant hungry and annoyed. It was so deeply fried that was hard to chew and couldn't tell if there was any... More

Food was delicious and well priced. Wasn't very busy so the atmosphere was relaxing and the service was good. The bee's knees cocktail is definitely worth trying! Overall lovely Sunday afternoon spent here!

Ate here many times over the years. Service is sometimes slow. Breakfast yesterday was cold, today better. The quality and service differ on each visit. Starting to loose its uniqueness - no wifi codes hanging any more. I feel this restaurant has gone from excellent to average.

My family and I came to Bill's for Mother's Day and our service was amazing. Veronica served us and she was so so helpful and really went the extra mile. Food and drinks were delicious as always. Definitely recommend.
