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. Bill's Clink Street restaurant is a cosy affair, with seating inside and out. Completely refurbished, the restaurant sparkles in the evening with the light of chandeliers and candles.

As usual the food was wonderful, as we had a booking we skipped the queue that was out the door. Our go to restaurant for breakfast on a Sunday. Worth booking to avoid disappointment

We had a lovely breakfast at Bill's yesterday and it was our first visit in 4 weeks as we had been away. The staff as usual were very efficient when placing our orders and the food was extremely tasty. The bubble & squeak Rosti are a 'must have' and my husband and I have them every time now. Thanks once again

We visited Bills with our son who was turning 6. The staff sang Happy Birthday when they brought his dessert with a candle and made our visit really special. Friendly, helpful staff and excellent food. Couldn't fault it at all.
