I've eaten here many times. The food is good and reliable and the service is quick, friendly and efficient. Noise, for someone like me with hearing aids, is a challenge with all the stone flooring and lovely solid stone walls, especially at lunchtime: pensioners can be very, very, very loud.

Lovely atmosphere and friendly service but didn’t fully live up to expectations. The Brie flatbread was little more than a sandwich thin. Would have expected home made dough for the price. Otherwise ok for a Saturday evening

My husband And I had the ale pie it was over cooked ,the pastry was rock hard and the meat was very tough .
This is the third meal we have had over there with friends and we have decided never to return.
I don’t know if it has changed hands but the chef needs to get his act together.

seems to have been a complete change of bar staff since our last visit, but they are still friendly and helpful. Think it`s still the same chef since the food is of similar style and still great, so will certainly still keep coming from time to time.

Very good service although we had to wait a few minutes for our table despite having booked. Unfortunately there is no seating in the bar area.

Good choice of food and very pleased that all the main courses come in small or normal portions. Sensible prices.

Very busy. Booking is essential.

Sunday lunch with family. Good, honest roast lunches enjoyed by all. Able to talk without distraction of loud piped music or rowdy bar customers. Well situated table. Goo, prompt service. Marginally more pricey than similar venues. Well kept London Pride.

I've used this venue many times fro business lunches and it is very good with fresh food and reasonable service and good staff. The building has a lot of stone flooring, so can be a bit noisy if the coffee machine is going, which is not soo good for a deaf person wtih hearing aids like me. If you are deaf, get a seat away from the coffee machine as, like all such contraptions, it makes quite a racket when being used.

This was a family get-together that was difficult to arrange because of prior commitments, distance needing to be travelled by some people and the complete deafness of one of our group. It should have been for 8 people but 2 had to cancel at the last minute due to illness. The staff were very understanding, went out of their way to meet our needs and were pleasant and friendly when it would have been easy not to be. The food was excellent - tender lamb, tasty fresh vegetables served separately and not overcooked, a vegetarian option - at an exceptionally reasonable price. It was also possible to opt for a 'small' version, which suited the two 80 year olds in our party. They were then able to enjoy one of the tempting deserts! Pleasant ambiance if a little raucous at the bar by 2.00 pm. All of us would thoroughly recommend the King William Inn.

I would have given the pub a higher rating but we were very disappointed on Sunday. I'd booked a table for 3pm through Opentable for my birthday. On arrival we were told that the kitchen closed at 3! They said "As we were in there they would serve us" We were asked to order quickly and then 5 minutes later, even though my son hadn't arrived, we were told our food was ready and that they could keep his under the hotplate. The food was good but the experience was very rushed and uncomfortable.
I don't believe that the pub should take bookings for tables at 3pm if the kitchen closes at 3.
It wasn't the experience I'd hoped for.

As usual, another wonderful lunch. Tom and Jess both know I adore liver and bacon and had kept a portion back for me.

My husband had the chicken and thyme pate which was delicious and the cheesy chips were quickly devoured by our daughter.
