If you search for a nice pub night, you're surely want to try the William's. The ambient is super cozy and warm. You can choose between fine draft beers and a lot of very good bottled ones. The food is excellent and they do not spare you on the portions, there is also the quiz game every Tuesday in this... More

We stopped in on a Thursday night hoping for a quick bite to eat. Upon entering you are smacked in the face with a stench of stale beer, onions and body odor. They only had items such as french fries and onion rings available that night. And a very sad rendition of what was suppose to be a taco buffet.... More

I write good, because it used to be better and offer more variety. The decoration, however, is a poor imitation of what a pub should look like. They could have done better...

Great selection of beers including "Sherlock", which is the pub's own Pale Ale, and Punk Double IPA from Scotland. Good pub food. Friendly landlord. Nicely old-fashioned 1970s style decor with long tables and simple chairs. Not your pretentious 1990s+ style gastro pub. Strongly recommended.

This dark place located besides the Main Building of Uppsala University offers a nice, simple but tasty indian buffet for lunch, but eventually, they turn into an amazing burger buffet on wednesdays, where the meat, but specially the fries make the joy of the week for burger lovers. A plus: the price, which only gets high with the drinks, but... More

Though close to the grand old university library, to other central parts of the university and the cathedral, this true English pub is tucked away in a lane which for strangers to Uppsala can be hard to find – but it is worth the effort! The Anglo-Saxon concept of pub & pub meal works splendidly at William’s. Their Indian buffet... More

Williams started by me and David Parry in Aug 1990 and has always to my knowledge been an English speaking pub, all our personnel even in the early days were from Uk, Ausie, Kiwi or other English speaking nations and the concept has always been to be as English as poss in a foreign country. Therefore one can not say... More

This is a place with great food and atmosphere! Old English style, with pub food + Indian food. Great combination! I went there with a friend and ate well, drank well and had a nice time. First it was a quiet place, but all of a sudden around 11 pm the disco ball started spinning, and the place was filled... More

This pub serves a buffé regularly and we had the Friday lunch deal which was the best value for money in whole of Sweden. The food was great and the price was all in (food, one drink (beer/soft drink) and water/tea/coffee). Staff was friendly, toilets were clean. Remember this is a pub that serves food, so don't expect a top... More
