Visited in a group of six on a very busy Friday December evening. We were welcomed and seated by lovely staff who were helpful and friendly whilst running around a full restaurant. The food was delicious and all dishes for the table were served together. We had a really good time and will return soon.

We had a party of 17 for the Christmas do - it was really easy to organise and when we arrived the serving team were really helpful and friendly. The food was lovely as you would expect from this chain although a couple of dishes were a little cool we did not bother to send them back. Service was really... More

Had Sunday lunch at this popular eatery. It was my first visit, taken there by a friend who lives locally. Our food was served hot and there were plenty of vegetables, which are a separate order. Cheerful service. Be prepared to wait for a table at busy times, like Sunday lunch time, though there seemed to be quite a quick... More

Had dinner with my partner and little one and it was amazing! I had only been for breakfast before but the dinner was even better! Staff were friendly and attentive! Looking forward to going back soon. Deserts are a must!

I think this maybe the original Bill's restaurant and is consequently very busy. We went Sunday afternoon and had to queue for about 20 mins. It has a great atmosphere and once seated service was efficient and food served quickly. Enough choice on the menu for everyone and we all enjoyed our food although the lamb burger was slightly fatty.

Icame here today with my friend for pancakes for her birthday! I like the setting of this restaurant. It is very open planned and has a good atmosphere. The kitchen is open so you can see inside and there is a nice displace of all the things Bills sell to the left as you walk in. Our food came within... More

A warm welcome set the standard for our visit to enjoy an early dinner. There is a varied menu which will appeal to all. The waiting staff are all friendly and pleasant. The food was delightful and a good choice of wines. The desserts are tempting. The restaurant has a laid back atmosphere which makes for a good experience.

We visited last night. The service was good and the food fine. We had one issue which the staff member resolved positively. The only negative for me was how cold it was. The ceiling heaters were not up to the job.

Met my parents here for brunch. Great attentive service and nice choice of breakfast dishes. Hollandaise sauce some of the best I've eaten! Nice big teapot to share, good atmosphere and good time had by all. Everything here is made with care and attention so it never feels run of the mill.

Thank Bonnotgirl
