Outstanding. Top staff, quick service and amazing food. Get the steak - really good. Or the lamb. Missus reckons that's smashing.

Bad experience yesterday, for a pre-booked (and confirmed) table of 6. We are all familiar with the pub, which is normally very or exceptionally good, but something went terribly wrong yesterday. The portions were ridiculously small, and the sumptuous descriptions of the printed menu were...More

Just back from an early pint (or 2) and dinner. Excellent meal- my chef salad with goat cheese, cress, walnuts and winter squash was delicious. My husband said his chicken was perfectly prepared and all but licked his plate. Both our desserts were equally good....More

Had yet another amazing meal at the King William last night. Food is fantastic and the staff are outstanding. We don't visit as often as we would like as it takes us over an hour to drive to Bath, but it's so worth it!

When the King William restaurant in Bath was converted from the knackered pub it used to be, it became it gastronomic hotspot for Bath-ites who adore the excellent food and relaxed setting. The ground floor is a pub, with the fine dining room upstairs, all now eclectically kitted out with in shades of mauve with antiques, chandeliers and daily blackboard specials. Seasonal, free-range, organic and local sum up the provenance perfectly, for dishes like fried squid with fennel, ruby chard and green sauce and main of fantastic braised lamb for two with herb broth, mash and local greens. Superb small-producer beers and ales and a blistering wine list crown King William a top restaurant in Bath.
