Service was good. Food was even better. Stopped for light meal, a drink, soup and calamari. Yum! Good menu options for meeting a friend and you want something light.

We’ve eaten in at least four “Bill’s” throughout England and have never been sorry. Food and service consistently good. We’ve even purchased their food products to bring back to the states. If you find one give it a go.

Great environment and atmosphere. Very friendly service and tasty food. The halloumi burger in a glazed bun with extra crispy bacon was an excellent choice.
