Right in the middle of the town, Bill's St Albans has a real Bill's vibe. Previously a bar, we completely refurbished the building, exposing brickwork and other long lost features along the way, to create a warm and characterful restaurant. Open all day, for breakfast, morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, it's a great oasis, whether you need somewhere to catch up on some work, meet up with friends and family or hold a birthday celebration. With plenty of booths and nooks and crannies, you'll always find a space to make your own. 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.

We decided to try a meal at Bill's with a wine offer. My husband had the burger with cheeses and bacon shich he said was excellent and I enjoyed a Thai curry. For dessert I had the delicious warm doughnuts and hubby had the rhubarb crumble which we both enjoyed. We look forward to returning again soon.
