Hurrah! We will be throwing open our doors again from 7am on Saturday, July 4th and we can’t wait to see you! It has been a long three and half months during lockdown, but we’ve been busy sprucing up the café on the inside and brightening up the outdoor area, too.
And while the numbers will be restricted for indoor eating, our large outdoor area has been transformed in time for the summer. As well as the terrace, we now have `Billy’s in the car park’, plenty of room for al fresco eating, with large oak trees to keep off the sun on those scorcher days, and some gazebos in case it rains.
We will be following the government guidelines to the letter, so please be patient with us so we can keep you and our staff safe.
Read on to find out what has changed….the one thing that hasn’t is our amazing menu. If you’ve been hankering for a Billy’s Big Breakfast, your time has come!
Billy has been in the food and wine business for 30 years. She’s cooked and grilled, roasted and baked, serving in restaurants all over the world. Her front of house experience was honed over 8 years in her London Wine Bar – ‘The Square’ in the 90’s.
She has finally called a halt and laid her sharpened Global™ knife on the A29 Stane Street, Five Oaks. “If I have learned anything in the last 30 years whether one is serving bacon butties or celeriac foam (which I’m not), it’s the following:
Welcome to my Cafe – I look forward to your visit, any time of the day.”
All day Breakfasts, the best Bacon Butties, Billy’s Burgers, Soups & Salads, Pates & Pies, Perfect Pastas, Cheesy Toasties, and Daily Specials from Stew & Dumplings to Moules Frites – if it’s in season Billy will prepare it and cook it for you.
Cakes, British Puds and Ice Cream Sundaes. We know you will find a favourite on our menu.
We are really proud of our coffee, specially roasted for Billy’s, teas, wicked hot chocolates and local beers. We have an easy wine list served by the glass and bottle to compliment your food. We run a ‘Billy’s choice’ monthly red and white chosen by Billy who loves her wine and looks forward to you enjoying her selection.
If you want to stay locally the Travelodge is located just behind the café – you could almost leap from table to bed so just the place for a snack or three course dinner and no worries about having to drive! We are open early so a perfect start to the day and we will even provide the newspapers.
If you are a local then Billy’s is the place for a breakfast, a mid morning coffee, lunch, tea and cake or early dinner with easy parking that you certainly don’t have to pay for! You may want to ‘play’ with our vintage Hornby train set or browse through our selection of books which you are welcome to borrow – an honesty box system.
As a fledgling business we are completely open to suggestions, criticisms and needs from all our customers and you are fully welcome to add your comments which we will always endeavour to address – we can’t please everyone but we will try.
Here at Billy’s we are committed to reducing single-use plastic waste from our café and to encourage our suppliers and customers to help us in this environmental endeavour.
We pride ourselves on being in the heart of beautiful Sussex countryside and just a short drive to the coast, so we want to protect these environments and the wildlife that inhabits land and sea, for future generations.
In order to do this, we commit to:
Initiatives carried out to date include:
All of the team here at Billy’s share the responsibility to reduce single-use plastics in our café and we hope our customers will embrace all initiatives introduced with that aim.
