Decorated to look like an old-school rustic grocery shop, Bills Islington serves quality food that won’t break the bank. The mismatched furniture, hanging bunches of chillies and quaint outside eating area all adds to the charm of this restaurant. It makes you feel like you are eating at a trendy independent eatery as opposed to the monster chain it has become in the last few years.
Serving brunch until midday, you don’t have to worry about getting up super early to make it in time. The garden plate – with poached eggs, halloumi, tomatoes, avocado, potato rosti and a bunch of other vegetables – will keep you going for the rest of the day (you may even want to skip lunch after this filling treat). You can also find all the classic egg dishes alongside buttermilk pancakes with berries for those with a sweet tooth.
If you’ve spent the afternoon mooching around Islington and need a little sugary pick-me-up, the teatime menu will be sure to fill the spot. Enjoy the Bill’s cream tea with your choice of tea, or its signature hedgerow fizz. To finish off your tea, pick from the pudding menu – the hazelnut praline sphere is sure to impress anyone.
When it comes to dinner, Bill’s knows how to do comfort food. From a range of filling burgers, to traditional warm and hearty dishes such as pan-fried chicken with wild mushrooms and chicken green curry. For summer evenings, or if you’re looking for something a little lighter, the salads won’t disappoint. Opt for the glow bowl to get your dose of health food, or the sweet beetroot, lentil and blackberry salad.
Regardless of what you go for, this menu it’s bound to be tasty. For nights when you want no-fuss and filling dishes in a trendy eatery with a buzzy atmosphere, Bill’s absolutely fits the bill (pun intended).
