The King William


One of Bath’s hidden gems, the King William is just fifteen minutes' walk from Bath Abbey and well worth seeking out. The pub has a reputation for serving great British food alongside a superb wine list and an ever-changing selection of real ales from small local microbreweries.

This Grade II listed Georgian corner terrace has many of it’s original features intact. The building dates back to 1827 and was made a pub to celebrate the marriage of King William to Queen Adelaide. Customers can enjoy the bustling atmosphere of the bar or go upstairs to one of the two dining rooms for a more intimate experience.

The menu is diverse with pub classics such as fish and chips and handmade burgers, as well as showcasing more technical dishes such as braised lamb shoulder and confit pork belly. The kitchen makes everything from scratch - including amazing bread - except the butter and cheese. The pub's desserts are outstanding, with favourites such as white chocolate parfait or pear tart with sweet fennel making regular appearances.

The standard of food and service has been nationally recognised in glowing reviews from Giles Coren, Mathew Fort, Mark Taylor and many others.
