Visited the King William for food as a party of 20 people. The food was excellent and the service friendly. A great food and drinking pub in the centre of town. Everyone in the party enjoyed their meal.

I had the best ploughman's for a long time. Really nice to be able to have it for supper not just lunchtime. Amount of cheese to bread spot on! (This rarely is the case). Nice to see other smaller meals available as well as well as their generous main meals.

Thank you for your kind review. Yes we can get a little busy, but we always let our customers know, and keep them informed. There's nothing worse than looking at every meal going out and wondering if it's yours! We like to keep the menu interesting and the Specials change weekly, so there is always something different to try. Thank... More

My sister and I stayed here last year and had an amazing weekend. Came back this year and the welcome we got from Joe as we walked through the door was warm and friendly, then Alex, who recognised us from last year came straight over and welcomed us, took our bags to our room for us and settled us in....

I am so sorry that your experience with us was not all it could have been. The pub is Grade II, and the sash windows can sometimes be noisy in a storm. We do supply window wedges in the rooms that this occurs in, and I'm very sorry that you didn't see yours. As it is a pub, there is... More

Myself and my family ate at this pub after visiting the rare breed farm. We got to the pub 15 minutes before they stopped serving food the barman was very helpful and took our orders. The food was very good and the staff were very friendly. Will definitely recommend.

I recently ate at this place for the very first time with my family and was highly impressed by the amazing standards of food, course portions, presentation and the service from our waiter. It makes such a pleasant change when you go out somewhere to eat and everyone in your party are only paying compliments about the establishment in general.... More

Thank you for your very kind review. It's great to hear that everyone in your party enjoyed their meals. We source our steaks from Luscombes the Butchers, ten metres across the road! and we do think they are wonderful. Thank you once again, and I hope that you visit again soon. More
