Last weekend things started to look rather spring-like across the south east. Whilst the world and his wife flocked in to Brighton, Josh and I headed out of town in search of somewhere a little quieter (but still picturesque). We boarded our early morning train to Lewes, and wandered through the cobbled street, chattering away and admiring the views (there were a lot of hills that we walked up), before crossing the bridge and heading to the original Bill’s for breakfast. I had high hopes!
I’m not the biggest fan of the Bill’s in Brighton, the service can be sloppy, no one ever wants to take your order or money and the food is often overdone (however the Covent Garden branch gets my thumbs up for great service and food). The original brand in Lewes is spacious, packed full of family sized tables (things to consider if you’re a two-some) and does some awesome pancakes. Josh had the breakfast which was so delicious (order regret on my part) with a green juice on the side.
The staff were super friendly, but as usual there was the issue of not serving us after we’d eaten – I’ve never had a chain so reluctant to take my money like this one! However it’s definitely a branch I’d choose to go back to over my local one. Sorry Brighton…
After lunch we wandered through the village, and up some more hills, before making our way home via the towns picture perfect station – it’s just so pretty!
Keep your eyes peeled for a few more snaps from our little village escape come Wednesday – there may or may not be outfit photos…
Come to the Chichester Bill's! We are so much nicer than the Brighton one 😛

Been to Bill's at Kensington High Street, amazing!! 🙂
God I miss brunch!Here in Greece it is not as popular as in other places… Lovely photos!
I love getting away for the weekend it's nice to have a change of scenery! Lewes looks very picturesque and pretty!
I'm so glad you've noticed the wait with Bill's to! Me and my friend have visited two different chians – and both have made us wait 20 minutes – half an hour to take our money. Lovely post though Suzie, very relaxing.

Have always wanted to go to Bill's so surprised the service is so bad! Lovely photos as always x
How strange about Bills- the one in Salisbury is great for service and food, and the Reading one is good too 🙂 xx
Oh this little town is looking incredible and super lovely ! I do love Brighton, I've be 3 times and it's super nice, but I can understand that it's also good to take some fresh air somewhere different . Those pictures are really awesome !
Love from France, Victoria
Such pretty Pictures! I'm hoping to come to London in May after my uni exams so will need to check out the Bills near Covent Garden! :)xx
I've always wanted to go to Lewes, it looks beautiful! The next time i'm near Brighton/ Sussex I'll definitely have to go! x
Always such beautiful posts! I wish I lived in England…
I love a day trip to Lewes because it is such a quaint little town. Also, I agree that the waiters in Bill's never want to bring take my money.
Bills always does the bets breakfasts! It's a shame the service wasn't 100%!
Who makes your iPhone case? It's super cute!
A get-away with the right people, is the right way to start spring x.
You take beautiful photos!
With love from London,
Lovely photos. Bills is amazing, I love going for brunch.
such as shame about the one in Brighton but looks lovely 🙂 hopefully they will bring one to Leeds where I am from 🙂
Gorgeous and crisp pictures!
Absolutely stunning photos, the food looks so good (although thumbs down for not ace service). I don't think there's a Bill's too close to me, I might have to go exploring for something similar!

I live in Brighton. I prefer the Lewes Bill's over the Brighton one. Definitely more spacious.
Lovely photos, really want to visit London and Brighton!
