A date with Bills

Today a friend and I ventured into town in this horrible weather to seek out the much talked about Bills. Placed in the antique Wyndham Arcade on Mill Lane,  Bills is a cool hang out spot and a great place for a catch up. The menu did have variation and had some nice sounding meals. I ordered a Fish Finger Sandwich, as the menu described it “cod fish finger sandwich with tartare sauce, rocket and ketchup, on toasted white farmhouse bread, with skin on fries”.  The sandwich was lovely and the fries were very tasty,  it was a very straight forward dish and I found no problems with it. That came to the price of £8.95. A childhood meal with perhaps an adult price. My friend choose the Pan fried hake served with chunky tomato, avocado and caper salsa with a crispy spring onion and parsley potato rösti, she enjoyed her dish very much but said that the avocado made the hake a bit bland. Her dish came at the price of £11.95. We both were tempted by the desert menu which had a brilliant range of sweet and naughty dishes. I choose the ‘Upside Down’ blueberry cheese cake, this was sweet and scrummy. The blueberry Kompot was delicious and chunky which I enjoyed alot although they were a little light on the amaretti biscuit. The price of the cheese cake was £4.75. My friend choose the Eton Mess which she enjoyed and said was delicious. The drink I had, was a lovely Fentlemans Ginger Beer, which was really nice. Altogether the meal was lovely, a nice atmosphere with good music playing. Although it may not be the place for tight pocket people some of the dishes are a bit pricy. The staff were lovely and service was swift. Bills is nothing out there but has a good standard of food and I will probably make another trip soon.
