Food and drink
Everything is fresh and delicious but breakfast (served till noon) is outstanding - the choices include bubble and squeak with ham, eggs and hollandaise, or grilled vine tomatoes with pesto and rocket on toast. Lunch and dinner dishes include salads, risottos and grills; juices, smoothies and indulgent, flower-topped puddings are a speciality.
Bill’s is large enough to feel airy even though the tables are crammed together. It attracts groups of mates enjoying a leisurely brunch, girlfriends meeting for coffee and families tucking into lunch. There’s nearly always a few babies in tow.
It's informal and friendly - but sometimes it’s just so busy, you have to wait.
In the lively, bohemian [node:173586] district, it's an easy walk from the station.
Breakfast costs £4-£8; most main courses are excellent value at under £10. The puddings (£5-£6) may seem slightly pricey in comparison, but are totally worth it.
The Bill’s success story began in Lewes; a third Bill’s has now opened in Covent Garden, London.
