I was recently asked if I would like to review Bills Restaurant in Farnham, as they had recently undergone a refurbishment and reopened.
We decided to incorporate our visit with C’s 16th birthday, as for the first time in 4 years she felt well enough to go out and celebrate her birthday with a meal.
On arrival our booking was confirmed and we were shown to our table, which was a lovely booth where we could sit and chat
As it was C’s birthday, and a special one as she turned 16. We sat discussing her birthday present which is a mini cruise on Queen Mary 2 to Bruges. We chose this as she will be able to rest up and have a day in Bruges.
Once we had made our choices we chatted with our drinks, I had a white wine and my husband chose a ginger beer while C chose their Oreo Milkshake
According to the milkshake expert it was amazing.
C opted for their buttermilk chicken burger with added cheese and bacon. Which is a crumbed chicken breast, creamy coleslaw , chipotle mayonnaise, beef tomato in a sesame bun and fries.
Her face when she saw it made us laugh, the burger was enormous. But freshly cooked and tasted great.
Both myself and my husband chose the eggs benedict, which is two poached free range eggs, Wiltshire ham and hollandaise served on a toasted muffin.
the only difference was I opted for sweet potato fries instead of normal fries. We are quite the experts on eggs benedict and this was one of the best I have had recently.
Time for dessert
We knew before she made her choice that C would choose the Warm Triple Chocolate Brownie. Which is served with with warm chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream & a chocolate flake.
I opted for the Lemon Merginue Pie in a glass, Which is Bill’s lemon curd cheesecake and lemon sorbet on a crushed biscuit base topped with Italian meringue
My husband opted for the chocolate and hazelnut praline sphere. Which consists of indulgent salted caramel ice cream with chocolate & hazelnut mousse, velvety chocolate sauce & golden pearls.
Our opinion on Bills
The staff were great, all very attentive to customers and keeping an eye on guests to make sure they did not have to wait ages to be served. The restaurant has a lovely friendly and relaxed atmosphere and the menu caters for everyone. One thing that impressed me the most, was on arrival to our table, our waitress asked if we had any allergies. This is something we have never been asked before, but something I feel every restaurant should ask.
While we perused the menus we were brought over a jug of water, which we did not have to ask for. The food arrived hot and freshly cooked to perfection, especially the poached eggs.
I would like to thank the staff at Bill’s Farnham, especially our waitress Iona who did a great job in looking after us.
