We went for a pre-theatre meal at Bill’s in the centre of Sheffield. It’s a chain restaurant and bar with a good gluten free offer of European style food. The interior of the restaurant has a slightly industrial look and feel with exposed pipes and cable trays, mixed with fancy chandelier light fittings – very trendy. We found the staff to be really attentive and it was a nice experience overall.
Bill’s has what they call an “avoiding gluten” menu that has plenty of choice from burgers through main courses like fish pie and risotto, and a couple of interesting salads. The menu and website do unfortunately contain the usual disclaimer about allergens being present in the kitchen. But the staff seem fairly switched on about allergens, and I’ve been happy to eat here.
I opted for a spiced cauliflower and butternut squash falafel bowl, which came with pickled red onions (a favourite of late) and a turmeric and mint soy yoghurt as a dressing. I often like to try a vegan dish, especially when it’s packed full of flavour like this.
The restaurant is open from 8am (9am on Sundays), so it’s a good spot for breakfast or brunch as well. The gluten avoiding breakfast menu includes a variety of cooked breakfasts, egg-based options and even a stack of pancakes. Worth a try!
