Great spot, sit outside for an excellent breakfast from a varied menu. Between 10.30am and 1am on a Sunday be entertained by the peel of bells from the local church....what a way to start to start the day!
Service was excellent, very attentive.
Eggs Benedict were particularly good on muffins, tea pot was huge and gave a good number of cups.....this would have been a 5 rating rather than a 4 if only the double espresso was a double in size, I'd question it even being a single....I know my coffee and this was masquerading as something bigger than it was!

Had lunch at Bill's today and very good it was too! They have a very good menu which is not to large offering breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea as different option along with dinner.

As we were not too hungry we went for the home-made cod fish finger sandwich with skinny fries which was quite substantial and filling. However, my bread was slightly over toasted, but this did not distract from the quality of the sandwich.

I am very fortunate to be live a minute away from Bill's but I hope that more people discover this wonderful restaurant in the heart of Reading. I've eaten here several times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All food tastes fresh and lovely, the staff are friendly and the location is great for shopping breaks and people watching. A bonus is that Bill's offer a large vegetarian choice which my sister is very happy about. You could certainly eat cheaper in Reading but the value for money and quality of food at Bill's is worth the marginal extra cost compared to some of the large chains on the canal or in the town centre.

Discovered this place as we wandered after a long walk along the canal and then some shopping. A hot day we sat outside and enjoyed a refreshing cuppa - served in a large enamel teapot- enough for several cups each, and a scrummy cake or two. Very friendly staff, good service (it was a mid week pm but most tables outside were full),and a wonderful venue for a relaxed stop and refreshment in the midst of a bustling city.
Highly recommended.

spent the afternoon there working, just drinking a few elderflower cordials and then met with a friend for tea. the choice of food was good, service was great, attentive but not in your face. I had the chicken skewers which were very tasty and the pecan pie which was delicious, only complaint would be that a bit more ice cream would have been nice!
