I had a really enjoyable time at bills. The staff were very attentive and polite. The food service was externally quick and the food was just why I needed at the time. Will definitely be returning!

Friendly staff, good service and in a great location near the Roman Baths. Had the Xmas menu which is good value. All good though the Roast Turkey was a little dry due to overcooking.

Dessert- Christmas Tree disappointing as red berry cheesecake element did not contain, taste of or look like red berry. Mentioned this to waitress who said she would report to kitchen. All other food very good.

Not happy with service charge which we did elect to have taken off ! Food good, service good and good value for money, but the restaurant had a drinks delivery whilst we were there which meant the fire exit door was open on and off for a good 20 minutes. When we complained it was brushed aside. It was freezing made us feel very uncomfortable.

We had a lovely time, fantastic food. My only slight criticism was I booked the table online and when we got there the waitress said we should have let them know about bringing a pushchair. The baby wasn't eating so I couldn't see the logic of it But to be fair the service after that was 101%

Food good. Servers good. Way too busy. I was a few inches from the person on the next table. So hot we had to leave with no dessert. Not pleasant and felt like we’d been really packed in.

Our first visit here with my oldest and best friend. Loved everything nothing to not like especially when we ordered a bottle of wine and the server said is that one each, fantastic, but we stuck with one between 2 which was an amazing Malbec.

It was lovely. The food, the waiters, the surroundings. Only reason it lost stars for overall and service was that our first course took a long time to arrive, but we didn't really mind, and could see the place was very busy. But the waiter took the time to check we were ordering what we wanted and asked if we wanted side veg dishes - I was very grateful for that as sometimes mains come with veg, so I hadn't considered it, but of course the fish pie in Bill's is just that - fish pie (excellent), no veg. And the veg were beautifully cooked, and attractively presented.
We will definitely go again when I'm next in Bath, and my grandson (at Bath Uni) was really pleased and wants to go again. Thank you to everyone involved with the meal.

Open Table is an easy booking service to use. The reminder email the day before provides reassurance that the table will be ready. The staff are very pleasant and prompt and the food was tasty, well prepared and good value - just as we have come to expect in Bill's. Good job!

We all went for breakfast at Bills, service was slow and when we were finally ordering the waitress looked anywhere but at us. When the food did arrive half of it was cold from sitting around and the other half was wrong as the waitress hadn’t been listening. Happily they did remake some of it for us but really not worth the fuss when there are so many other places in Bath.

I love the fish pie but this time I had the Christmas Special Burger. All very lovely with a fabulous of bottle of wine which we shared. Disappointing that I was charged £4.50 to swap the fries for sweet potato fries. My sister said her chicken was tough and burnt so she was not impressed. I did mention this to the waitress but not much was said. The bill for the five of us came to £133.00 so not cheap. Would I eat there again, probably yes and go back to the fish pie but three out of the five of us said no, they would not go back. One for the quality of her burnt chicken dish and the other two because it was too pricey.
