William IV


Ratings and reviews

Location and contact

A traditional local Gastro pub located just moments from Old Street, serving excellent real ales, draught lagers and a fine selection of wine and spirits. The pub interior reflects the elegant simplicity of the menu with it's oak flooring and stripped back styling still retaining all it's original features. Our menus change seasonally and we do a classic British roast on Sundays.

We visited this pub when they had a live band playing just before Easter. Great atmosphere, the food looked delicious and the staff are friendly and helpful. I've since heard good things about their Open Mic nights, so I'm looking forward to a return visit

Came here to watch the Ireland France match, Ireland lost... Though the pub is great, nice atmosphere, a place where you can have a chat and play boardgames. Staff are top quality and if you are looking for a local this is a good spot....More

Don't be put off by its slightly shabby look, this is a great place to have a lazy Friday lunch with mates, without spending a fortune. Great imaginative grub and a great range of beers and ciders. Very relaxed atmosphere with great friendly service. Décor...More

First, let me say that I have NEVER visited this pub - but I certainly shall be going there soon. Why? Because on Sunday, 21st December, they will be feeding Christmas Lunch to homeless and hungry people. And that deserves a five-star review if anything...More
