Bills is a bit of local institution , the first ever Bills was born on this site and it continues to be overseen by Bill Himself . Good for breakfast or lunch as its very busy and friendly, they also do evening meals but we haven't done dinner at Bills so cant really comment. So if a good fishfinger sandwich or a Bills Burger sounds appealing then this may hit the spot .
