Bill Collison, founder of Bill's, opened the first Bill's in Lewes, East Sussex, in 2001. Built on the same site where Bill had been running a successful greengrocery for several years, Bill's Café & Produce Store, as it was then known, was an instant success. The aim was to make a place that was colourful and exuberant, with dishes that were really tasty and also made you smile, that put every day and unusual seasonal ingredients together and gave everyone lots of ideas to take home with them. The team at Bill's baked, cooked and served deliciously different food, hung skeins of raffia from the ceiling, stacked towers of produce for people to buy and hired lively, enthusiastic staff to look after their customers. They wanted Bill's to be somewhere that really celebrated food and was welcoming to everyone, a place that felt like the next best thing to home. Breakfast at Bills is a great way to start your day; from a humble bacon or sausage sandwich to a bells-and-whistles super classic great British breakfast. Weekends are a different story, time to kick back and turn breakfast into brunch, complete with newspapers, freshly squeezed orange juice and plenty of tea or coffee. Right in the centre of the city, among the hubbub of shops, cafés and restaurants on Cheap Street, Bill's in Bath is a cosy and intimate affair, packed with character. Salvaged tiles and floor boards, chandeliers, candles and mirrors, we went to town on getting the feel of this restaurant just right and it's great any time of day, whether you want to pop in for a coffee, meet up with friends for lunch or enjoy a candlelit dinner in the evening. Close to the Theatre Royal, Roman Baths, and other attractions, the restaurant is very well placed for pre-theatre dinner or as a calm oasis if you're out shopping or enjoying the city's many sights.

We are now Bill's converts and seek out a branch wherever we stay. Bill's in Bath did not disappoint with a great choice of breakfasts in a nice environment. Online booking was very straightforward.
