Average pub , though very noisy position on a corner of the main street. Chef does well with cheap meat quality and small menu. Can be quite a boozy place in the evenings the landlord obviously enjoys the beer! Outside looks nice, though don't be fooled! Lots of nicer places very close by.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are a town centre pub, as are most of the pubs nearby and consequently we do all suffer with some road noise. Our local butchers right across the road from us, may take some offence at your remark about cheap quality meat however, as they are rnowned in the... More

We were staying in Torquay and decided to visit Totnes for the day. On entering the King William I can truthfully say we received one of the warmist welcomes I can remember on entering a pub/hotel.All the staff were so pleasant. Being Camra members we were ready for some real ale and we were not disappointed. The beer was great,... More

After a harrowing trip to Torquay (I used to live there had not been back for 20 odd years and found it seemed to have rather a large drug problem.... hypodermic needles in the gutters-nice!)- this was a welcome place. We tried a few places on the hill, but fully booked on a bank hol, so chanced on this place.... More

I normally start by thanking people for taking the time to post a review. I struggled a little to understand this one. Taking you comments in reverse order, we don't do pizzas, mainly because everyone else does, but we do amazing Tapas amd Mezzes instead. but if you had wanted to compare maybe choose steaks next time. Ours are reputedly... More

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!

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.
