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.

Lovely pub although stone floor makes it a bit noisy. The service is friendly and attentive and food is served without too long a wait. They are very good with my son who has learning disabilities. The menu has a good range supplemented by specials and vegetables are always good. One thing that is very welcome is that they offer smaller portions of main courses which is great for those with smaller appetites. The cheesecake was delicious. The crumble is served in silly shallow dishes with a jug of custard so it is impossible to pour on the custard. My son finds this particularly difficult but they were happy to bring his in a proper pudding dish. One thing that was particularly thoughtful was that they rang in advance to say that there was a problem with Visa payments so that we were forewarned. Lovely evening and we will be back again.

We had a very pleasant meal at the King William, although my husband was hoping to have one of your lush pies (I had told him about them from a previous visit of mine, but the very nice young lady waiting on tables said if we ring ahead next time that you could certainly do a pie, so we will be back.

Lovely birthday lunch on Sunday for my mother's 85th. Service was friendly and helpful. Good choice of food and especially welcomed the generous selection of vegetables. The cauliflower cheese was especially good. Only criticism is that because of the stone floor etc it is rather noisy making conversation difficult.

The King William just gets better and better. The food is beautifully cooked and presented without ever straying into pretentious "gastro-pub" territory. The simple and tasteful ambiance is perfect and the service is friendly and prompt. By keeping the menu short but doing everything well, the Chef strikes exactly the right note. The only problem is that it is now so popular you really do have to book ahead most nights of the week. We love it.

We always get a good meal at the King William and have no hesitation in booking. One of the things that I always comment on is the fact that even if there are 12 of us in the party they never cease to bring all our food out together. Nobody is kept waiting. Very, very good service given by friendly staff and the food is always first class.

We have been to the King William on many occasions and have never had a bad experience. The food, service and ambience are consistently good. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anybody. One of the main reasons we like it is because most items on the menu can be ordered in 2 sizes so that if you don’t have a huge appetite the smaller version is more than adequate.
