Bill's restaurant announces new site for Epsom, Surrey
All-day casual dining restaurant Bill's has announced plans to open a new site in Epsom, Surrey, as part of its wider expansion.
The 3,000 sq ft Epsom restaurant will seat 80 to 100, and is expected to open in July.
It will shortly be followed by new locations in Tunbridge Wells and Bury St Edmonds, as well as Worcester, Nottingham and Manchester. Leisure specialists Davis Coffer Lyons (DCL) are to lease the Epsom, Tunbridge Wells and Bury sites.
Originally started by a fruit and veg salesman from Lewes, Sussex, Bill's is now under the direction of former Caprice Holdings managing director Andy Bassadone, and runs to 33 sites. It is aiming to open 25 new restaurants this year.
The all-day venue serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus afternoon tea and evening drinks. Breakfast dishes include classics such as Cumberland sausage sandwich, eggs Benedict or porridge; while lunch and dinner includes dishes such as grilled halloumi, mixed mezze, fish pie, grilled chicken, burgers, macaroni cheese, fries, chocolate brownie, ice-cream and lemon meringue pie cheesecake.
The drinks menu offers a wide choice of wine, soft drinks, coffees, teas and more unusual options such as the pink lemonade and vanilla ice-cream float.
Jake Bernstone, restaurant agent at DCL said that Epsom was blossoming and seeing more growth than it had in the past.
He said: "There are many operators viewing the area with great interest when they are deciding on their expansion strategies. Bill's is an incredibly well organised operation, though I have no doubt that others will follow."
