Bill's is a British restaurant and bar chain, founded by Bill Collison in 2001 when he opened a small greengrocery in Lewes, East Sussex.

As of January 2020, there are 78 branches in the UK,[1] down from 81 in September 2018.[2] With home deliveries on the rise, Bill’s launched a takeaway and ‘click and collect’ service to expand their offering.[3]


The first restaurant was founded in Lewes, East Sussex. It began as a greengrocer's, but after a flood, a cafe was added to the shop.[4] It has been followed by an expansion of restaurants around the UK featuring locally sourced produce and menus for breakfast, lunch, dinner and teatime.[5]
