Had a delicious breakfast/brunch here today. Staff are enthusiastic, intelligent and friendly - and the Bill's breakfast was delicious. However, the black pudding (extra cost of £1.50) was an extortionate 'extra'. Two thin slices.....wow, what a mark up! Absolutely not worth it. Toilets also need a re-furb or thorough clean. Nearly got stuck in one when the door jammed!

Although staff are friendly and service is good, the food leaves this restaurant falling short. They need to up their game as there is plenty of competition in the immediate locality!

I have visited Bill's in Welwyn Garden City many times and have never been disappointed. The staff are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The menu is modern and the food is always fresh and well cooked. Super addition to the area.

We came for a meal at this restaurant based on a good experience at their Cardiff restaurant. We are from Cornwall, lost in a big city but had a meal here as we have ate at the Welsh restaurant before. Food and service was lovely. The only thing that spoilt it was the proximity of the smoking area. X

Absolutely great lunch option! Booked ahead, quick service and tasty food. I had the Bill Burger with everything on it - so good!! I'd go back and would recommend sitting outside - was close to the coffee machine inside and bloody loud!! Good value all round!!
