Went here for first time. Outside looks like reasonably presented high street pub, inside though is much nicer, contemporary look with background music. Menu not large, but built around platters, snacking, burgers and specials. Drink selection good. Fiancé had a very nice Cornish Gin and I had Heineken, closely followed by Tiger on draught. Polite service from barman. We chose... More

We visited today as a table of ten, we had the most delicious roast dinner and desert! There was a lovely friendly atmosphere in the pub and light and airy decor. Excellent staff. We will definitely visit again, please open another in Plymouth so we can visit more often!

Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a lovely review. We are really pleased that you all enjoyed yourselves. I especially recall the charming little girl who entertained us with her recorder, and bigger brother who "rapped" brilliantly. It was a pleasure to serve such a lovely family, from little ones to great grandparents! Yesterday was... More

We called for a late Sunday Lunch. The roast beef was delicious and I especially enjoyed the cauliflower & broccoli cheese. The staff were also very friendly & welcoming. Will certainly visit when in Totnes again.

Delicious roast pork with all the trimmings, generous portion sizes and certainly value for money. They are very accommodating not only to us but also our dog, who is always offered a fresh bowl of water and a side dish filled with treats. Highly recommend this pub

Went on a day out to Totnes with a friend today and after looking around for somewhere to have lunch, we settled on the King William. As soon as we walked in the staff greeted us and asked whether we wanted just drinks or food. We were directed to a table and our drinks order was taken straight away and... More

Now I'm sure this place may be good based on other reviews but we had a weird experience when trying to have some food. Went in about 18.45 on Monday 29th Dec. It was not that busy, few people around the bar. We asked if they were serving food and the guy behind the bar said 'yes' take a seat... More

Have visited here a number of times both before and after refurbishment/re-opening. At a time when local pubs are closing at a rate of knots the King William is a great asset to the town.

Having just moved to Totnes, we have been discovering the different places to eat and we were very pleased with the Sunday lunch on offer here! Fantastic value for money and you get so much food; gorgeous yorkshire pudding, cauliflower cheese, crisp vegetables and tender meat.
