    Great service from staff, delicious food. The muffins are fluffy and the bacon is super crispy. I shall definitely be back. The only thing that is a shame that maple flavoured syrup is used instead of actual maple syrup.

    I asked for my steak to be pink but was tough and well done. Awful. This was my third choice as they had run out of 2 others. My other family had burgers. The buns were hard and overdone. The burger was supposed to be medium but was tough and overdone. Awful. The meatballs and duck salad were OK. I then had to ask for the table to be cleared. Won't be going back

    Went for some breakfast. Full English and some tea and coffee. Unfortunately , the food was not freshly cooked and it was cold. We were on a tight schedule so ate it anyway. We told the staff afterwards and they did refund our tea and coffee as a gesture of good will. Which was nice. Shame as nice place, I’m sure This was just a one off - hopefully!

    Food was excellent but service was very slow. Enjoyable overall but with children they found the wait between mains and deserts very difficult (desert was ice cream so didn’t need to wait for it to be cooked). Also I’m nitpicking but when the food came out everyone was served except one child, who understandably got upset and thought he had been forgotten, a tiny issue but one easily avoided buy serving the children at the same time/first.

    The staff are friendly and the venue is nice. We ordered tea but were served Earl Grey which we quickly sent back. We had a stack of pancakes and I think they lacked either a serving of cream or a scoop of buttermilk cream. I ran out of syrup and requested a bit more which I received. It wasn’t until the bill came that we saw we were charged an extra 40p for it which I was not made aware of. Overall a nice breakfast though.

    Lovely evening at Bill’s! Our first time visiting and hopefully not our last. We were pleasantly surprised at how efficient, timely and lovely every single staff member was. Really makes all the difference! Food came quickly and as did every round of drinks. My only complaints would be that the table was much too small as we were given multiple glasses and bottles, as well as separate sauce pots and there being hand gel, candle etc on the table. There just wasn’t enough room and it felt overly cramped trying to eat. I had to give away empties to staff whenever I could as they weren’t always picked up. Also the music was a bit too loud and felt that it didn’t really go with the theme of the restaurant. But I would wholeheartedly recommend Bill’s and thank you for a lovely meal!
