Lovely venue and staff were pleasant enough. However, in my view the food was average, expensive and portion size was small. Deserts are ridiculously over-priced at around £6 for a small serving. Drinks are also costly, so I won't be rushing back!

First the positives - I love the look and feel of the restaurant. The front of house lady was pleasant. However, no matter how much I want to like the restaurant, it offers poor service and poor quality of food.

The waiter service is unfriendly and disinterested - our waiters looked miserable or put food down without saying anything or even looking at you. No matter how much I tried to engage, they didn’t seem to want to crack a smile!

The food (we had 2 steak and chips and 1 veggie mezze) was tasteless, slightly ‘off’ tasting or burnt - my falafel resembled lumps of charcoal!

The final insult - they automatically add service charge to your bill (not just large groups - we were a table of 3!). This is supposed to be optional (according to the bill) - so Bill’s, please ask the customer if they want to add it on, don’t just tap it into your card machine without a word!! Needless to say I asked for it to be removed!

We booked Brunch for 12 people but Bills had lost the booking. They found us a table after a few minutes wait. The food and the staff were pleasant but very disorganised.

Decided to book and enjoy a cracking breakfast, seated straight away, enjoyed speedy service delivering breakfast baps with good coffee to measure, all very reasonably priced in a comfortable setting full of families, students & folks about to hit the shops. Cumberland Sausage & egg, perfect set up before hostile shopping.

We went as a group of nine for a family birthday celebration. I like the atmosphere at bills and they have a good selection of simple yet delicious food. The cocktails are great too. It seems very popular at the moment though, and might be a little noisy for some - it was full of young uns. Perhaps it is the place to be seen.
