Restaurant in Covent Garden
Bill’s is a well-known restaurant chain with a number of branches across London. We visited the restaurant in Covent Garden branch to try out their new menu! Unlike most of the chain restaurants in London, Bill’s has personality with great food and service!
Tucked away in St Martin’s Courtyard on the edge of Covent Garden, Bill’s is close enough to the hustle and bustle but hidden away enough for a quiet (and delicious) bite to eat. The restaurant has recently been revamped and it is absolutely gorgeous. Oozing with style and decadence, there is a lot of seating across the two floors and a large outdoor area which twinkles in fairy lights.
The atmosphere is chilled and there was a lovely relaxing ambiance whilst we were there. The staff are so helpful and fun and we enjoyed our experience even more because of the staff.
The food is so good! We started with a sharing platter called Health which had smashed avocado, hummus, ancient grain with smoked tomatoes and olives and kale crackers. This was like a sharing platter sent from vegan heaven. The avocado smash was perfect with tasty spinach in it, the grain was full of flavour and we loved the smoked tomatoes. The hummus was smooth and delicious and the kale crackers were so tasty.
For our mains we had the Carrot, mushroom and cashew nut Wellington with artichoke mash and vegan gravy. We also had the 10oz dry aged rib-eye steak with smoked tomato béarnaise, rosemary salted chips and roasted tomatoes. I will start with the wellington – wow! It was beautifully presented, full of flavour and the pastry was crispy and melt in the mouth. I had not experienced artichoke mash before but it was really tasty with perfect seasoning. The steak was a big old slab of good quality meat, cooked just right and the béarnaise sauce was the perfect accompaniment.
We tried the Hedgerow Fizz which was prosecco poured over a frozen blackberry with elderflower cordial. It was very tasty and didn’t long and was an absolute bargain at only £5.95!
I cannot say I have visited many chain restaurants in London and come away thinking that place was great but Bill’s really was! The service was fantastic and the food was really top notch. I would recommend visiting Bill’s restaurant in Covent Garden branch as it is just so pretty.
