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. Just across the street from Baker Street tube station, Bill's Baker Street is light and airy and has plenty of old world charm.

Thank you to all the staff for a lovely evening. It's the first time I've been to Bill's Baker Street and the first time I've had dinner at a Bill's. I'm delighted to report I enjoyed the whole experience just as much as I enjoyed the breakfast and lunches I've had (Bill's Soho). I can't wait to come to Bill's again!

You would never guess you on Baker Street once you entire Bill's. Front of house was a delight. She was lovely and made you feel at home on the onset. Our waitress was a delight and breakfast was even more of a delight. Chunky hummus in the vegetarian breakfast with poached eggs was a very interesting nice difference. Moorish and delicious! The mini doughnuts were light and delightful. Great spot. Good vibe!

Very busy Friday evening but all the staff were exceptional. They were friendly and charming and worked continuously. Being offered water for the table immediately set the tone for the evening. Food was good and menu varied and all 4 of us were happy with our choices. Noticed several people enjoying cocktails and there was a real buzz about the place. Being local I have eaten lunch here which was also good - but the atmosphere in the evening was really good.
