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. A characterful building, with low ceilings and plenty of cosy booths, Bill's Epsom restaurant slips from the bustle of daytime to the intimacy of the evening. Spread across two levels, the restaurant also has a pretty outdoor terrace.

All the staff were extremely friendly and arranged a cosy table for two as we requested. Thoughtful, attentive and food was excellent. My husband said his steak was one of the best steaks he had ever had :).

Lovely time at Bills, great service and ambience. Food was good ; starters were very good and my girlfriend liked her butter chicken burger. My fillet steak wasn't as good as I hoped it would be ; bit disappointing. But a good place, to eat and will go back
