Bill's Kensington High Street, just inside the entrance to the tube, was formerly a series of small shops that we have knocked into one to create a lovely restaurant and calm oasis in the middle of this very busy shopping area. Open for breakfast, morning coffees, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, the restaurant slips seamlessly from the the daytime bustle to a quieter, more mellow atmosphere in the evening. 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.

I cannot speak highly enough of my recent experience at Bill's, Kensington HIgh Street. I arrived ten minutes early but was taken immediately to my table. The manager, Hugh, asked if it was a special occasion. On telling him that it was my birthday he immediately brought over champagne flutes and a bottle of Prosecco. From that moment until the end of the evening we had nothing but superb, friendly service and excellent food. Some of my guests did not want a dessert so were given complimentary cookies to share. The atmosphere was just right for a celebration. Thank you to all the staff who made our evening so enjoyable. We will be back!
