TEN Thomas Steers Way may be an address you are unfamiliar with in Liverpool.

Tucked away from the shopping corridors of Liverpool One and underneath the main strip of eateries, it's a site that in the past may have been overlooked.

Step forward Bill's restaurant as the latest chain joining the varied list already inhabiting the shopping mecca.

And on first inspection, Bill's menu does seem to provide something a bit different.

With a mix of English and American influences, the menu is filled with grown-up homely dishes as well as fun options including a cod fish finger sandwich.

I opted for the slow braised duck leg pie with rich gravy, pearl barley and topped with a buttery mash and smoked Dorset cheddar.

At £11.95, it was a delicious dish which just needed a little bit more duck to satisfy a hungry carnivore's appetite.

My sister went for the much meatier chicken and chorizo burger (£9.95) topped with tomato, lettuce and avocado alongside a generous portion of skinny fries.

Staff were helpful and attentive throughout the meal and even thoughtfully brought an extra spoon so we could both dig in to each others desserts which included a warm chocolate brownie (£5.95) with milk ice cream and warm cinnamon doughnuts (£5.50).

Overall Bill's has all the ingredients to be a success and based on the number of tables filled while we were there on a Sunday evening; word is clearly already spreading fast.
