We spotted Bill's upon our early morning arrival and thought it looked inviting. My wife had the vegetarian breakfast and I had the pancakes. The ladies who greeted and served us were extremely polite and friendly, and could not have been more helpful. The food came quickly and was absolutely delicious. My wife's, in particular, was amazing. Throughout, the service by the ladies was so friendly, we felt like old friends of them all within minutes. In fact we enjoyed the meal so much we decided we would return for our dinner later.
And so we did, and got a seat quickly and easily, despite it being busy. We were recognised from our morning visit, despite it being almost 10 hours earlier. And despite not being our server, the young lady came and chatted to us briefly, asking us how our day had been. Frankly we were blown away by this friendly, personal service that is so rare these days. Again the food was superb, and quickly delivered. I had chicken from the grill, and my wife had sea-bream on tagliatelle. Both had a subtle mix of flavours, none of which were over-powering, but neither were in danger of being bland. Moreover, my wife decided to buy some of their products and we were surpised to be offered to have it gift wrapped. This was at 8.30pm on a busy bank holiday evening! My wife, who is very particular, was blown away by the quality of the dramatic wrapping. Yet again we were so impressed by our experience we decided we would visit again the next day.
Visit again we did, twice more in fact! Making four visits in only two days. We had delicious scones with clotted cream for a later morning snack, and had a mix of starters for a late lunch/early dinner. Each time we bought a few more of their products for gifts, and got them perfectly giftwrapped.
Overall the food was consistently delicious, but what pushed this to a five star rating was the friendly, efficient, utterly exemplary service. In this day in age, it was a rare treat, and what was drew us back time and again. If I hadn't been a member of Tripadvisor already, I would have joined simply to write this review!
