We met friends in there who are regulars, and we had a table of seven, including three children. The children all picked their favourite starters, which was a good sign that the meal was going to be of good quality. For a relatively quiet Saturday night the service was a little slow but the food was of good quality. We... More

Visited here on 5/2/17 for my great auntys 80th birthday. Had the 3 course deal as to which were all lovely. Pate for starters, roast dinner (Yorkshire puddings were delicious) and hot chocolate fudge cake to finish. It was very busy and heard one of the girls say you always need to book a table otherwise there's a bit of... More

Life threatening wings are spot on, deserts are to die for, staff are very good indeed, visit once a week if we can.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and chose from the sandwich menu. The rump steak and onion ciabatta was amazing. A lovely pub with friendly staff, a great menu and brilliant views.

We visited here for a meal on Christmas Eve, we had booked, & were shown to a nice quiet table in the corner, it was lunchtime & the place was busy, but the staff were very friendly & attentive. The food was wonderful, all 4 of us had something different & it was all cooked to perfection, (hence the four... More

A shame we was rushed through each course but need like chewing gum in my enchiladas and the only thing that kept my Mrs chicken moist was the pesto and cheese. Great disappointment. Never seen such you poor service and dreadful food before. A waste of a great establishment.

Been to this pub on a number of occasions. Staff are friendly and food is generally wholesome and mostly good value. However, the menu has not changed at all over a number of years, even the specials are rarely different. I know you shouldn't fix what isn't broken but I do think it is time for a refreshed menu. We... More

Living nearby I eat in the King William regularly and I think I’ve taken the good food and service for granted. Darren and Tracy run a tight ship and it pays off. Tracy handles front of house and Darren is often the chef and he cooks a great steak. So why review now? Last night I chose both mains and... More

First visit to this pub/restaurant and would recommend it to anybody. Excellent food, plenty to choose from and friendly staff. I would definitely recommend the mushrooms for a starter! They are so good! Will be going here again soon.
