We came across Bills while exploring Brighton and couldn't have been more impressed. The restaurant was very welcoming, bright and full of friendly staff. Food came out quickly and was delicious!

I can see this has changed hands and it has become a victim of its own success and being one of the two original Bill's can't be blamed for it. Standards are down service slow food only satisfactory and price over the top. What was a jewel is now paste.

What a find! Just so good to have attentive good service and wonderful food in great surroundings! Breakfast is served even at early lunch time and the servers are as happy to serve a pot of Earl Grey tea as a drink from the bar. I had the Full English Breakfast which was stylishly presented and a masterpiece. One of... More

Meeting the beloved first born for pre Christmas catch up. We arrange the date well in advance. I am promised she will book as it's likely to be busy in the week before Christmas. Oh how I laughed when I hear nothing has been booked but "lets go to Bills as it's near where I live. I am sure they... More

Dined here tonight based upon various recommendations. Great location and full on a Tuesday . Great starter and cocktails. However failed on my main. I opted for the venison and cranberry pudding, with mash. A pudding for a northerner is normally suet as steamed. This was pastry full on, but not the main problem. It was very dry and over... More

We came here on a Saturday lunch time expecting it to be queueing out the door given the reputation it has. We were pleasantly surprised to get probably one of the last tables in there. Despite being busy we were still welcomed warmly and served quickly. The menu is vast and plenty to choose from. Food was served quickly and... More

Unlike the Bill's of Lewes from ten years ago Bill's, I believe it is no longer a family run affair, is now a bit of a chain. However, it does still provide great breakfasts. We were in Brighton so we toddled in for a late Brunch on Saturday. The queue, and there's always a queue, was only two minutes and... More

Always a good service and food. Once I had to send something back but it was done smoothly and professionally. Quick service and reasonably priced. Friendly staff who are always welcoming and more than happy to help.
