Along with a scrumptious summer menu, the chain has launched Summer of Music: a series of outdoor gigs coming to Bill’s eateries across the country. Dine out in Manchester on Thursday to hear from Lucy Mayhew and Ollie Lloyd.
The music moves to Cardiff and Liverpool, finishing in Lewes on August 24. There are no tickets or waiting lists, just book a table and try out new salads, sweets and cocktails. Visit bills-website.co.uk.
