EXCELLENT

Cafe cum Food Hall in this delightful town on the edge of the Cotswolds. Had a very appetising lunch from a varied and fresh menu. Attentive, friendly local staff and very good value for money.

Three of us went to Williams for an early lunch to celebrate my Grandmas birthday. The staff are very attentive and friendly and the food is just excellent. I had the Moules which came with crispy fries and it was delicious. The decor and atmosphere also make it an excellent spot for lunching.

On a visit to Nailsworth, Williams's was recommended to us by a family member and we were so pleased they did. In addition to dining, there is a great selection from the delicatessen, including quality fish and seafood. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with a couple of little ones at the table. The moules and frites I... More

This was our third visit and we were not disappointed. The food is always good. The staff is friendly and doing their job quite well. The only thing we don't like in this place: having to queue to pay. After having a lovely meal and some nice wine, it would be nice to be able to pay whilst seating. Maybe... More

We were in Nailsworth looking for morning coffee and popped into William's. Superb coffee and complimentary biscuits - homemade and delicious. Then it was to a nearby bookshop, and lo and behold, time for an early lunch. Where else to go but back to William's! We had moules frites and our son had crab croquettes. We have eaten moules frites... More

I was thrilled, but not surprised, to see this Cotswold gem featured in the Sunday Times yesterday. My daughter, who works for a major supplier to the food industry, insists on a restaurant meal (including oysters!), when she comes to visit - such is her opinion of William's. In fact she toyed with buying the business when William retired ...... More

Went here in a party of 10 on Friday evening. Very relaxed atmosphere, really varied menu (I don't like fish and this is a seafood restaurant but they had a number of different options for me). Really good wine list; from the reasonable to the very posh. I had a tartlet starter which was delicious followed by one of the... More

We had lunch with two friends from London, we've all been fans of Williams for years, but had heard he'd retired and the place is under new management. We could not have been made more welcome by Sue who helped us choose some wine and seated us at the Oyster Bar to peruse the menu. We had a fabulous lunch,... More

The fish and chips here is something special - far better than at the five star hotel where I ordered it last week! You cannot book here so first come first served but from simply cooked delicious fish dishes to luxurious lobsters and scallops all are superbly cooked and served by friendly staff.
