Bill's Restaurant - Bath Food Review

Bill's restaurant is known to be popular, especially for breakfasts. Every time I have tried to go, there has been a queue to get in! So I had to find out what all the hype was about. Read on for my review.



Making sure to get a table, I got to the restaurant at 8am, the start of the breakfast service. It's homely inside which is great for breakfast, the most comforting meal of the day and one that we associate the most with being comfy and at home. The rustic wooden tables and the slight dinginess is what makes it unique and feel homely. The window looks out onto the street so if you're a fan of people watching, there's a perfect spot for you.

There's a great range of breakfasts available so it was quite difficult to choose what to have. From cooked breakfasts to bircher muesli, porridge and croissants there's something for every appetite. I had heard that the pancakes at Bill's were some of the best around so that's what I ordered - Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes.


At first sight the pancakes are aesthetically pleasing and colourful, plus the size of the portion looked fantastic for someone as starving as I was. Their unique touch to pancakes is that they cook blueberries in the batter itself, as well as adding fruit on top. Banana, strawberries and blueberries are scattered on top and the pancakes are soaked in maple syrup. Result! There's nothing worse than dry pancakes.

Sweet, indulgent, fruity and filling these pancakes were delicious and I can now understand why they are so popular. They're not stacked or thick, like some pancakes, but they're thin and squidgy with the right amount of fruit. At £5.95 they're more than worth it.


Bill's also sell their own range of products, from jams to cookies and even a cookbook, so as you're sipping your soya latte (in my case), your eyes can enjoy a little feast of delights as you glance over the shelves of pretty jars and boxes.


Now I know why Bill's is so busy on weekends, I will be back and if I were you I would give it a try. But make sure to get there early to beat the queues. Trust me it'll be worth getting up early for.
