Have been here a few times now, for either breakfast or dinner and since it opened the quality of the food seems to have gone down somewhat. I used to love their macaroni cheese but when I was there a month ago it was really dry. The ambiance and decor still make it a relaxing and enjoyable place to be. Hopefully the food ups it's game a bit soon!
Completely disagree with the last review. Since its opening my husband and I went a few times to Bill's and although it is nothing "special" it never disappointed. Food is always up to a good standard and it is by far the nicest place in Wimbledon (outside Wimbledon village) to meet up with friends for a quick lunch/dinner or coffee.
Gorgeous decor and super enthusiastic, friendly staff. A bit more style than substance though. Portions are adequate but verging on conservative for the price. At £3, the small dish of 6 tinned, brine-drenched olives served with a wooden chip fork were a screw-your-face-up-type regret, particularly when persuasively upsold as an appetiser and we had to wait 20 minutes for them to arrive. The fish pie that sped in 2 minutes after the olives was definitely fishy. Nice big chunks of salmon, but the sauce was watery and only served to emphasise the grainy, packet-esque cheddar mash on top. Side of broccoli was really delicious and buttery though - the sesame seeds were a tasty touch but the sliced red chilli simply lay in the bottom of the dish soaking up the butter - the flavour didn't even register. I really wanted to love this place but if you asked me if I'd go back, my reaction would be something along the lines of "meh". If you like 'cute', crouch-down-beside-you-and-call-you-mate type of service and can deal with a mediocre one-course dinner for 2 tipping the scales at £50+, then you should go. You'll like the hanging, dried chillis and it always seems to be packed - it'll be riding the wave of being a new Wimbledon destination for a little while yet.
