My title sums up my overall impression. A good varied menu, slightly expensive for what was being served. I ordered "Gammon with a hot and sour Asian slaw". Nice piece of gammon, but frankly the "slaw" was of only of garnish proportions, so best described as "minimalist". The Bruschetta was well above average. Where Bill's needs to improve is on service, we actually lost track of who was taking orders, serving us etc. as a consequence the meal arrived in a haphazard way. We would eat there again, worth another try.

We spotted this place out walking and it was busy with a lovely evening crowd. We returned for breakfast, enticed by the menu - the French Toast topped with strawberries, bananas and blueberries was amazing. Service was all round friendly. Made my day.

Liked the place well enough until the food was put on the table. I just think there's no excuse for serving a cold English breakfast, and a pretty ungenerous portion as well. Had a much better one at my cheap hotel near King's Cross.

Great atmosphere but sadly had to wait for 15 mins for a drinks order. After the meal the table was not cleared until we asked three times. The manager was apologetic and did try fix things but there was just not enough staff to service this establishment.
