Bill's Battersea restaurant, on Northcote Road, is a mix of salvaged pieces, cosy booths and sharing tables. In the heart of all the action, it's a great place for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between. 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.

Booked a table but the only one available was right by the door on a freezing day. We were told we would be moved when another table became available but it never happened. The food was okay but got cold immediately because the door kept opening. I think the restaurant should look at additional heating at the front of the restaurant, maybe overhead heating or underfloor. Was told on the phone we would get a free drink for wearing a Christmas jumper but that didn't happen either. Service wasn't good today. A disappointing experience and wished we had gone elsewhere, won't make the same mistake again.

So good that you can order from the brunch menu up until 5pm in the Clapham Bills restaurant. What a great idea! Pancakes all day!

I love Bills and go regularly although this is my first time to Battersea. I was very disappointed to discover that the sausages cooked in honey and mustard are no more!!! The mustard comes separately and no honey. The whole purpose of snacking on them is that they are sweet and sticky.
