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. Food selection is reasonable, décor is nice and service is best in class. Not sure who the landlord/landlady is but the whole team really do... More

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. I have to admit that from the outside, I was a bit dubious thinking... More

A group of us had a Christmas meal here. Staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. Made us feel so welcome. The food was served in a very timely manner. No long waits for any course. It was well presented and tasy. Lovely veg, and we could have had more if we needed it. The only minor downside... More

Popped into Totnes for some shopping and had lunch at the King William. Neither I nor my friends had eaten there before and were treated like seasoned regulars. The food was great. Good value and really tasty. The service on the other hand, especially by the waitress was excellent, making us feel welcome and adding to the overall customer experience.... More

I'm not sure if Stevie Wonder was commissioned to manage the interior re-design of the bar, or whether the owner had just received a job lot of Laura Ashley wallpaper. Anyway, the colours just don't work. Yes, it may be cleaner and more upmarket than before the refurb was carried out, but the previous interior had a certain charm that... More

On a day trip to Totnes, called in for the Sunday carvery which was excellent, what stuck us particularly was the outstanding friendly and efficient service. The decor is nice and everything is spotlessly clean, this place deserves to do well and we will definetly visit again soon.
