Mid-Week Dinner Menu at Bill's, Bath

Bill's is one of the classic chain restaurants that you see in most British towns. Unlike others, however, it's got a really sweet interior, and a great breakfast menu. I used to go there for brunch all the time when I was in first and second year at university - their buttermilk pancakes šŸ¤©.

Last week however, we were kindly invited by the Bill's team to check out their new dinner set menu for Sunday to Thursday. It's £19.50 for three courses, so very good value. 

What we ordered
  • Crispy calamari with red chilli and lime aioli 
  • Chicken and sesame dumplings with Bill's spicy chutney 
  • Minute steak with fries and garlic butter 
  • Chicken Milanese (Thursday's special) 
  • Triple chocolate brownie 
  • Warm mini cinnamon doughnuts 
  • Merlot Santa Rita 8km Central Valley from Chile 

Our thoughts

We started with the crispy calamari and chicken and sesame dumplings. We really liked the calamari, which was not too chewy (as it can sometimes be) and was nice and crispy. The sauces were paired really well with both starters, and the chutney was not too spicy. 

As mains, we chose the minute steak with fries and garlic butter and the chicken Milanese, which was  Thursday's special. 

The chicken Milanese was advertised as coming with a watermelon, feta, cherry tomato, red onion, mint and olive salad, but the salad was actually quite small. We were a bit unsure about the tomato in the watermelon/feta mix, although this could be down to personal taste. The chicken itself was a bit disappointing as it kind of tasted like fast food. 

The steak was decent for a minute steak, and the fries were really yummy. Again, not much salad on the side, but for a set menu at under £20 for three courses, it's still good value so the lack of excessive salad is understandable. 

To finish, we ordered the brownie and the cinnamon doughnuts. 

The warm triple chocolate brownie came with a warm chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream and a chocolate flake. The brownie was good. Not mind-blowing, but it will definitely satisfy any chocolate craving.

The mini cinnamon doughnuts were the star of the show. They were warm and came with fresh strawberries and warm chocolate and salted caramel dipping sauces. These were so good. So so yummy. 

The staff were lovely and the food was served in a timely fashion. The vibes/ambiance is cute, cosy and clean. Bill's is one of our favourite chain restaurants. 

Overall, the price is £19.50 for three courses, or £16.50 for two (Sun-Thurs from 5pm), so I think that the menu offers a decent price:quality ratio. 

We would recommend Bill's for breakfast, and for anyone looking for a decently priced three-course dinner.
