    Enjoyed our evening. Starter was good, mains not so. We both has Caesar Salad, but the chicken was rather tough and the Caesar dressing had no flavour at all. Definitely not the best we have had. The dessert was fine. Service was good, but I don't like service charges being added to the bill. My husband paid it, but I felt the percentage was too high.

    The food and service was excellent at the start but as restraunt filled up it was hard to grab attention to order puddings and further drinks so we eventually got the bill and left. I would have no hesitation calling at Bills again in the hope if Better service. The food was very good and the Restraunt is appealing

    It’s always a delight for me to have a meal at Bills. The staff are excellent, kind, helpful and efficient; the food is simply wonderful. I have had numerous meals there over the years and they are always beautifully cooked and presented, interesting and exciting + delicious. I would never hesitate to recommend Bills to anyone who loves food and eating out.

    This branch of Bills is rapidly going downhill and we won’t be going back after years of loyalty to this restaurant. Portion sizes of breakfast were minuscule. Eggs on toast were child size. Extra black pudding side was one tiny circle and a complete waste of money. Coffee way weaker than it used to be. Pancakes rock hard and inedible and clearly reheated to an inch of their life and when we complained the servers take an instant dislike to you and you get bullied out with their ignorance of you. They also need to know that the waiting staff and chefs can be heard by tables surrounding the servery. Interesting to hear that the floor manager asked if any fresh pancakes could be made now there were complaints……. say no more. Very disappointing.

    I was very please with our visit. Only thing i am disappointed with is the adding of service charge which i find unacceptable. We are getting more like usa. I do leave a tip on most occasion but up to my discretion. This practice is becoming more company in this country.

    Very disappointed that the bacon roll has been taken off the menu and the whole thing has been exchanged with a weekend brunch menu that is missing a lot of favourites. So I went to Bills for breakfast and only had a coffee as there was nothing else on the menu available prior to 11am that I liked. Is a bacon roll too much to ask for?? And when did you start letting dogs in the restaurant!?!? Not a good move.

    My family enjoy coming to Bills, if anything I would say the mains menu is a bit small, not giving that much choice, so if they run out of a meal type it gives even less of a choice. That said, the food is tasty and the staff are always friendly so I would recommend giving it a go at least.

    So much better than a year ago when we last visited Bills in Southampton and they were offering a very limited menu. The menus are now extensive, offering a variety of choice and good quality food. All the staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive , especially Grace who couldn’t be more helpful. Although we thought a glass of 175ml wine was a bit overpriced at around £8 each, we will definitely be returning again soon.

    Lovely atmosphere, indoors and outside seating. Avoid the chorizo salad special, it’s not good and the portion was very small. Service charge was automatically billed and no one asked if we wanted to take it off, although service was good. Also make sure to get UNiDAYS if your a student, it takes 20% off!
