Bill’s!

Last Friday I had a little family visit from my mum, auntie, grandma and grandad and because we are all little piggies we had the worlds biggest lunch, EVER! I’ve been to Bill’s once before this when I visited my friend in Oxford this summer but we had afternoon tea and not an actual meal. The staff were really friendly and I love how it’s decorated, really quirky and mismatched. 

To start, we all shared crispy lemon squid which had big shoes to fill after the ones I had last week at Bella Italia. i’m not kidding, there was enough food in one portion to feed four people. The rings were huge and there must have been about 10 of them! The batter was nice and crispy and the the garlic mayo dip was seriously good. The only problem I found with it was that the squid itself was quite chewy and it lacked a little bit of seasoning. I preferred the one I had last week at Bella Italia but you can’t go wrong with the price and portion sizes, they are seriously insane!

As my main dish I had a chicken and chorizo burger which came with skinny fries. This was gorgeous! The chicken was moist and very flavoursome and the chorizo was beautiful and tasty. Everything went really well together and the sweet bun made it all sweet but not too sweet. Again the portion size was absolutely massive for the price and the chip tasted more than chips, they were nicely seasoned and a little sweet which I liked.

I just had to have a dessert after the first two courses as they were both so good and I needed to see if it matched up. i had the warm chocolate brownie with milk ice cream. the texture of the brownie was very nice, soft but with a slight crunch on the outside. The flavour wasn’t really there in the brownie but the chocolate sauce had so much it was unbelievable! One drop had so much chocolate flavour. I think that the next time I go back I might try the mini doughnuts!

Starter-Pan Seared Scallops and Chorizo

Super delicious, but don’t expect anything less from this combo. The portion size was small but it was very big on flavour. It came with a creamy cauliflower puree which was really nice and the scallops were perfectly cooked. The chorizo was nice although it did just taste like crispy bacon and everything was in proportion.
9/10
Main-Seafood and Mash
I’d never come across this combination before but it was surprisingly good. The scallops were tough, which was odd as they were fine in the starter, but they still had a good flavour. The remoulade sauce was very hie and went well with everything. The mashed potato was extremely tasty, the fish was very nice and the prawns were the best thing on the plate.
8/10
Dessert-Lemon Tart
This was delicious. The custard was really creamy and had a lovely lemony flavour. It came with a biscuit base which I’d never had on this dessert before but it was really buttery and it was gorgeous. the portion size was good and it was just beautiful.
10/10

This was an extremely good overall meal and is definitely up there in terms of the best so this gets a 9/10.
