Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beware of the "discretionary" "optional" "service charge" in the small print that "will" (sic) be added to your bill - without asking you to exercise discretion or opt in. No suggestion this is a tip to benefit staff, that could be left directly with staff...in addition. After asking about the "charge" while placing our order we experienced so much "service" it verged on irritating.More

Had a really good lunch today at Bills Kingston. Our Server Lee did a great job - she was attentive, cheerful & polite and made our dining experience very good. The food was delicious too!!

Main chicken & fish gojons meal Off set menu was very dry. Staff replaced it, but it still wasn’t great. No balsamic vinegar or French dressing available. Staff pleasant & we weren’t rushed, but I have eaten in better Bills before.

Great dinner with friends on a Thursday evening in May. The service at this Bill’s was great and our waitress was friendly, efficient and was really welcoming. Interesting menu with a lot of options, good sized portions and food was tasty

I was convinced to eat here again by a friend after previous trip here was unimpressive. Sadly it was disappointing again, the service was underwhelming until it came to the bill and then they were speedy. The food was overpriced for what it was.

We had a really lovely meal. We both had excellent food and the staff were very friendly. Decor is gorgeous and great setting on the edge of the river. Ticked all the boxes. The coconut ice cream is gorgeous.

Lovely staff. Nice restaurant clean . Food delicious and well presented. And a discount on blue light card. Located on the riverside. The waitress forgot to put our order through but when she realised she was very apologetic. But despite this we still got our...food in a quick time so not a problem for us at allMore

Great food friendly staff, especially Shay she is the most amazing member of staff. She is a credit to the restaurant, and they would be at a loss without her.

By the river, great food and staff and dog friendly. What not to like. Shigh was an amazing waitress, friendly, accommodating and couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely return, with our little doggy too, of course.

Really disappointing. Service was slow until you asked for the bill and then it was thrust in front of you seconds later with a card payment machine at the same time so no opportunity to check it over. The food was so overpriced for what...it was, not good value. As were the drinks, nearly £4 for an apple juice in a small glass that was just regular apple juice.More

The staff in Bills are amazing. Great service and food is good. No complaints at all in relation to that but I am a dog lover and owner. Sat next to a lovely family and as dogs are allowed they had two. A puppy in...a carrier and a dog, mainly under their table. However, the dog was eating leftovers off plates on table and was under our table searching for anything dropped. I love fact dogs are accepted in most situations but this is a step too far for me.restaurant was packed and little room. I have a puppy. He’s never allowed to eat off plates in my home. Not everyone loves dogs as much as me but there is a hygiene issue and I wouldn’t want my dog to interfere with anyone’s dining experience. You can say only responsible owners but a dog is a dog and doesn’t recognise boundaries so I know, firsthand that they will behave like a dog and search for scraps.More
