Dirty, expensive and horrible staff. The manager or whoever that gentleman is shows up drunk shouting at the staff and even customers. The napkins stick to the tables, and it is usually cold inside. I don't like this kind of businesses around my neighbourhood. I've been there twice and last time I swore I won't go back, it is simply lousy.

Based on Shepherdess Walk, away from the hubub of Old Street, this pub is definitely an amazing place that I will come back to time and time again. Everything about this place was great. My roast pork belly was phenomenal. My other half tried the roast chicken, which was cooked to perfection, along with the lovely crisp but fluffy roast potatoes. Service was extremely, prompt, friendly and the two guys behind the bar catering for our group left us with a smile on our faces, in fact they even left us in stitches at some points. If you're looking for a great place to chill out after a heavy night out on Saturday, then the William IV is the place to be. I've already booked my table for next Sunday!


Horrible service (the waiter actually succeeded in making us feel unwelcome at this place), which is too bad because the food was excellent.

With its Christmas Eden charm dressed in ivy, mistletoe and pinecones, this really is the perfect pub right now; with it’s real fire and spiced warm drinks… Sunday lunch is excellent. Between six of us we chose Beef, chicken and baked hake with spinach. Service is friendly and efficient. Food perfectly served. With plenty of vegetables and extra gravy. This is our first Sunday visit but our fourth meal here in 2 months. They also do a frightenly good Bloody Mary's and some hearty desserts.


Best roast chicken I have eaten for a long time in a pub went down very nicely with a delicious bottle of red and a lemon posset dessert thingy for pudding.


Fantastic Place. Went on a busy Thursday Evening with 3 friends. The wine was great, the food even better. Would defiantly recommend, not too expensive for the quality of the food. It’s a no frills pub and I imagine that it gets very busy because the food is GREAT. Well worth a visit.
