The first time I visited a Bill’s restaurant, it was love at first sight. Well, first bite – of a mini donut. Those fluffs of doughy cinnamon-y goodness were exceptional, and quite telling of an establishment that looked and felt as warm a countryside kitchen. Alas, that was nearly four years ago during a summer in Cambridge, and since then, Bill’s hasn’t exactly been on the top of my hit list – simply because I’m on a bit of a health streak and have taken my eating out down a notch. But judging by a new and improved menu, Bill’s has cottoned on to the healthy restaurants trend, and nailed it.
I was recently invited to try out the new weekend brunch menu, which now includes healthy sharing plates and green smoothies – just the sort of place you’d want to swing by after a workout. Personal highlights included a moreish beetroot and goats cheese aranchini, and an extremely tasty panfried chicken with truffle and mushroom, with a side of seasonal veg. But there’s still loads of gorgeous, well-prepared menu item for anyone having a cheat day (like the incredible – and ginormous – Bill’s fish finger and prawn sandwich ). A special shoutout also goes to the melting banoffee sundae, which is as heavenly as it sounds.
Have you been to Bill’s recently? What’s your verdict? Let me know in the comments!
