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. Formerly an old pub, Bill's Eastbourne restaurant is in a great location, right in the middle of the town, with seating inside and out. The mix of original features and Bill's touches give the restaurant real charm.

Evening out with friends and had a great time. Food was excellent and service was too. Nothing was too much trouble and there was a really cosy atmosphere. Loved it and would definitely go again.

First time at Bills for an evening meal. Could not be faulted. Food was well presented, very tasty and reasonably priced. Ambience was perfect. We were the last to leave, after 11pm, and weren't made to feel rushed in any way. Thank you Bills!
