Heralded as the cherry on the cake for Horsham’s growing list of wonderful gastronomic offerings, it was confirmed on Friday (21 September) that Bill’s Café and Produce Store will open in the town by December.

It will be full steam ahead for Bill’s to refurbish the historic Horsham Town Hall in the town’s Market Square.

Bill’s has a unique offering of good quality flavoursome dishes and is already hugely successful in its birthplace of Lewes as well as Brighton, Cambridge, Exeter, Islington, Richmond, Soho, Wimbledon, Reading and Covent Garden.

Horsham, especially East Street, has become renowned in the last few years for its cafe culture and its number of diverse restaurants and coffee shops and the arrival of Bill’s will see at least another £1million of private investment made to enhance that reputation.

In this case, enlivening a historically underused building and saving the Council Tax payer from having to renovate and maintain it over the coming years.

Helena Croft, Horsham District Council’s cabinet member for communication, special projects and Horsham Town, said: “The biggest of welcomes to Bill’s. It is the very best of news that Bill’s is coming to Horsham town to provide their famously high quality products and service.

“I’m sure this new arrival will be eagerly anticipated by both local residents and visitors.”
