Can you pay my bills? Can you pay my telephone … hold on that’s the wrong Bill’s. Back up back up! Forget Destiny’s Child, today I’m all about Bill’s restaurant and all about the food.
Pretty much every blogger and their dog has been to Bill’s except for little old me. I was due to go back in March to their Cambridge restaurant after the #Cambmeetup but was so god dam ill I sadly whimpered and travelled home to bed.
Whimpering aside, I’m glad I left it until I was fit as a flea, this time opting for the convenient location of the Peterborough branch with hubby Chris. Being the foodies we are, we booked in and happened to be the first customers of the day. Keen or what? On arrival we were greeted by lovely jolly staff who welcomed us into a warm friendly atmosphere.
Inside was surprisingly spacious with a skylight letting some much needed sun into the low lit establishment. The décor is rustic and eclectic looking with decadent chandeliers, oversized lampshades and shelves upon shelves of food (which you can buy!)
We started off with an appetizer of olives, which always go down well but these were particularly good as they were bloody huge and full of juicy rich flavour. The beers were pretty cool too, Chris opting for a Camden Pale ale at the waiter’s recommendation.
For starters I went for the grilled halloumi with quinoa and lentil sprout salad and Chris went for chorizo sausage roll in puff pastry. The sausage roll was freshly made so we were warned we may be waiting 15 minutes or so but it was well worth the wait! This take on the original sausage roll was absolutely divine, with the puff pastry being delicate and light. My salad was also lovely, with a honey dressing and a little red chilli with caper.
Onto the main and I was all over a burger! The bun beautifully soft and the burger itself being rich and delicious. Chris on the other hand went for the ribs, which I must admit looked god damn amazing! Slow cooked in bbq sauce, they were begging to be eaten and Chris thoroughly enjoyed them. By the end we were totally stuffed and seriously satisfied.
So that was my first experience of Bill’s and a very positive one too! If you’re looking for a cosy restaurant serving good food with awesome staff and a relaxed atmosphere, I’d recommend Bill’s at Peterborough.
