Bill's Westfield is in a fantastic location, sitting just inside the main entrance to the shopping centre. We set out to create a calm oasis for everyone, somewhere for shoppers to come and put their feet up - maybe for a nice breakfast and an oversized pot of tea before they start their shopping, a break at lunchtime, or to flop down into a comfy chair at the end of the day, for dinner and a glass of wine. Plenty of leather club chairs and chandeliers, the restaurant, which has a lovely conservatory running along the front, feels both urban and cosy at the same time. 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.

Coffee could have been a bit hotter & an extra teabag in the teapot too! But food was great.

Been to Bill's a few times now and the food and service is always great, so decided to celebrate my partner's birthday with a nice meal - Bill's was the only way to go 😊

The food here is delicious, especially their breakfast/brunch it is my favourite spot! The service was a little slow as it was a busy mothers day and it was quite cramped as it was clear they were trying to squeeze in as many people as possible.
