Bill's restaurant and bar is a vibrant establishment found in the centre of Colchester, Essex. Located in close proximity to the bustling high street, this quintessential British chain offers a diverse array of delectable dishes, creative cocktails, and beverages, all within a warm and inviting setting where quality time with loved ones is cherished – furry companions are more than welcome.

If you're beginning your day at Bill's, treat yourself to a beloved British classic: tea and toast. However, for those with heartier appetites, our Garden Plate awaits, a sumptuous banquet featuring two poached free-range eggs, halloumi, roasted plum tomatoes, charred red peppers, smashed avocado, hollandaise sauce, mushrooms, fried potatoes, baked beans, pea shoots, and toast. And don't overlook the delightful pancake options, featuring mouthwatering toppings like crispy bacon and luscious maple syrup.

For groups, we recommend exploring the enticing selection of small plates and shared starters. Our menu caters to every palate, offering delights such as miso padron peppers, a sticky duck salad drenched in zesty BBQ sauce with succulent watermelon, fragrant coriander, and crisp little gem lettuce wraps. You can also savour our crispy fried chicken dumplings served with spicy chutney, chimichurri roast beetroot accompanied by luscious olive oil hummus, date molasses, fresh mint, and warm flatbread, or partake in the heavenly halloumi mezze platter.

Should you prefer lighter fare, Bill's provides an array of salads and plant-based options, including a spicy and aromatic South Indian curry featuring paneer, green lentils, and baby spinach, all served alongside toasted flatbread, fragrant coconut rice, and refreshing mint yoghurt. The classic chicken Caesar salad and the hippy bowl, showcasing roasted butternut squash, green lentils, ancient grains, creamy avocado, earthy beetroot, and tender spinach, are equally delightful choices.

Be sure to conclude your dining experience with Bill's flowerpot, an enchanting creation comprising passion fruit cheesecake, a bed of chocolate soil, plump fresh strawberries, and an edible flower - it looks as good as it tastes.
