I've never left a review for anything or anywhere before. Perhaps that says it all for a lot us, except those that complain! So here goes, compelled to have my say, against the (minority of) moaners on this site.
My family and I have visited Billy-Bob's Parlour at least a dozen times now, including birthdays or just at weekends. We have recommended it to countless friends and have even bought gift vouchers for some. Without exception everyone has loved it!
Food - the food is excellent. No cheap burgers or sausages, but quality local produce and big portion sizes. We love the variety on the menu. Relishes come as sides (and not all over the food), which suits my wife and kids. We order two portions of fries, this is enough for the four of us. Try the Brooklyn Deli Sandwich or the Pulled Pork Burger, these are my favourites. But save room for desert, these are huge. Remember, a Round the Camp Fire pancake can (and needs to) be shared! The milk-shakes are the best we've ever had. Ask for them in a take-out cup if you think you may struggle. They also now offer a kids size shake (not sure if it's listed on the menu). We've just had breakfast there for the first time this morning and again wow!
Value - We are a family of four and we spend around £40 for a drink, main and a desert (to share?) or an ice-cream or milk-shake each. This sends us home groaning over the excesses of our eating. At this price, this, in my opinion, is great value. We've paid much more than this elsewhere for cheap food.
Service - The owners and team here are very friendly and we just can't fault them. You are made to feel very welcome and the drinks and food come out quite quickly. Now, we do go late in the day mostly, as it can become extremely busy otherwise. There are only around 10 tables inside, with seating outdoors if the weather allows it. But be patient...it will be worth it. If you give the staff your mobile number on arrival they will telephone you when a table becomes available, if you decide to go off to the play barn. What is also interesting is, when you do go late (and stop even later than you should), you watch just how thoroughly the staff start to clean down the place.
Play Area - Oh how I wish this place had been around when my kids were younger. The play equipment is great. We've taken friend's children and my nephew (aged 3) and had to drag them away from the equipment. The additional play barn is also good fun for those a little older, though prepare to find straw in your car after the journey home!
Ignore those that moan. This place is very busy for a good reason! Yes, I'm sure there are occasional service slip ups, though we've yet to experience one. The staff are brilliant and the food is perfect. You will leave feeling you've just had a very good deal indeed.
Finally, to those who think they can bring their own food and drink and then use the play equipment, and then moan when told otherwise.....get real!!
Keep up the good work Billy-Bob! See you again soon.
