Good was similar to average home cooked food standard. Service included in the total which is a bit wierd as we expect to be served food in a restaurant. This trend for it being included in the bill is concerning as what incentive is there for outstanding performance in this area.

The service staff were excellent, so friendly and helpful. There was a small problem with a drink we ordered, absolutely nobody's fault and they fixed it straight away.
Our scrambled eggs were delicious but they were almost totally cold and the toast was under-toasted. I'm conscious though that it was extremely busy and I would still definitely go back. I wouldn't want to work in the service industry at this time so props to everyone working in busy public places at the moment (:

Got a table right away and didn’t wait long for waitress to take my order.

Had the smashed avocado on toast with poached eggs and a side of crispy bacon and good size portions. All very good and tasty followed by a green tea.

Staff were very friendly, place not noisy so a pleasant atmosphere to enjoy your food

Will be back next time I’m in Bath.

First time we had been to Bill’s in Bath we pre booked and were warmly welcomed and the waitress answered any questions we had about the menu our wine and water were brought to our table quickly. The food was outstanding, the only complaint which we had was that the moment we finished our first course we literally put our cutlery down our main course arrived, I did mention this to one of the team to which she said that she had noticed.
Shame as it slightly spoiled our visit. Would we visit again probably but we would order first course then when we finished that we would order main.

I would say the food is lovely but maybe not enough extras ( see later comment) . The waiting staff differed for every course. I like to have one person to have a rapport with . The Bills restaurant at Bath does look quite dirty. There are stains and splashes on the table legs and the metalwork bannisters on the stairs look like they’ve never been cleaned. Probably could do with a good clean and refresh . A few more things in the menu for example my husband and son had a burger but would have like onion rings or mushrooms added .

A really lovely place, a great feel, friendly, helpful staff. They were still full of energy and smiles even though we had seen them all on the shifts the night before, the breakfast, lunch and dinner shift before we arrived (our hotel was close so we walked past a lot)
Lovely food, served very quickly.

My main was nice but nothing special. I had Caesar salad. We all chose the flower pot for desert which was cute to look at and tasty. The maitre D found us an outside table even though she was rushed off her feet and our server was on the ball.

We order the chicken skewers which were very dry and burnt and tasteless. The accompanying grains and rice, dip and flat bread were also bland and tasteless. My husband even tried to add some flavour with ketchup to no avail. The idea is good. The experience really horrible

On arrival we had a lovely welcome from the staff. We were also given a choice of seating which was nice. There was plenty of choice on the menu and the the food was tasty. We were disappointed that we had to wait 20 mins for our dessert, it only turned up after chasing a member of staff about it. My pudding was cold!! We were also not happy that the tip was automatically added to the bill when we received it. It should be personal choice if you want to tip. Due to the wait on the pudding we decided not to. We had to ask for it to be removed from the bill which was a little uncomfortable! The option should be available on the card machine.

I love Bills Bath, I've visited many times & always received great service but was a bit disappointed this visit, the food was lovely & we also took advantage of the good times offer which was great but the girl serving us was so unfriendly & miserable looking we were almost nervous to order!
I will definitely visit again but hope to get service with a smile next time!

Lovely waitress, great atmosphere.

Really loved the pudding menu but thought that the main menu could do with a few better options.. also the cocktail menu was very limited and the cocktails were very expensive for what they were.
I loved the chicken and the nachos.
The risotto was not so great.

Enjoyed eating again at Bill's. The food is good and your staff are excellent. I would love it if the music was a little gentler but then that is my choice. My biggest gripe is that your plates are looking a bit grubby around the edges. Does you dishwasher need attention are your staff using it a waste disposal. In this day and age it's very important. Sort that and it would be five stars all round.

The only item my wife would eat was not available. She resulted in ordering a burger, but asked for it to be very well done, but when we got it it was pink in the middle.

I'm so sorry to say that this wasn't the best Bill's experience. We were a very late booking (9pm) and unfrotunately were made to feel like a bit of an inconvenience.
