“Sharp practice”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Visite the above establishment recently and just had coffees. Paid the bill on leaving without much notice and a little way down the street realised that I had been charged a 10% service charge which was "Opt" (Optional?) without any mention of it. Besides this the coffee was rather ordinary and inflated in price from similar establishments in the locality.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Having walked past this a few times (it's quite hidden), we visited last week and really enjoyed the food. The Halloumi burger and macaroni cheese were very nicely cooked and presented - nothing fancy but just good food. However the Summer Pudding dessert was fantastic, and partnered with the fizzy dessert wine it was a wonderful end to the meal! Nice staff, good seatign so not too crowded in, pleasant ambience. Definitely revisit.

“left feeling hungry”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Bill's is fairly new to Chichester and it was recommended to us by someone who had used their Guildford restaurant.
Pleasant staff and surroundings, the food was okay but nothing special for the price. All the servings provided were very small and left me feeling hungry.

“Relaxing family meal”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Nana's chosen spot for her 85th birthday, loved the quirky relaxing atmosphere if in a group ask for a booth they are perfect.

Chilli crab/prawn fish cakes were light & packed with flavour, a little disappointed with the ribs just didn't excite me at all. The girls said the chicken & chorizo burger was amazing.

The staff were very helpful nan wanted pancakes from their breakfast menu & the chef did them especially for her which I thought was a nice touch.

Overall a relaxing & chilled out evening which we all enjoyed!

“Fanbloomintastic”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We went for a big family meal, the eldest was 83 and youngest 2. Every single person loved it, the food was amazing, and the service was second to none. Despite the fact we were there a little later than the children normally eat (I get worried about kids in restaurants past 8pm) they were treated with so much affection. Margot our waitress (sorry if the spelling is wrong) was so so lovely. She had so much time for us all, even chatting with the kids and taking home a mountain of drawings done for her by them. I can't recommend enough it was wonderful. Yummy food, happy staff, lovely atmosphere. Thank you xxx
