Bill's Hoxton, on Hoxton Square, sits among the hubbub of the area's hip eateries and bars. A lovely space any time of day, the restaurant is open for breakfast and coffee through the morning, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, and is a great place for drinks after work and light suppers. There are two floors inside, a soft seating and bar area at the front and a pretty terrace outside. Open all day, the restaurant is great for after work drinks and light suppers. The downstairs area, with space for 30 or so, can be hired for private functions. 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 Bill's 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.

I booked a table for my 21st birthday as a group of 14. We pre-ordered our food and the service was great. The waiters were friendly and couldn't do enough for us, and the food was lovely! So impressed and grateful.

The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We shared a delicious starter and had two mains - all the food was faultless and the portions were generous. Our lovely candlelit meal was finished with dessert and their new Christmas cocktail - the brandy custard cup, which I'd highly recommend because it was delicious!

I have always liked Bill's. This branch was lovely too. Good service, great food and I love the fact it's laid back and quiet enough to have a good catch up with the girls for a few hours.
