The ‘Williams’ is an inviting hostelry tucked away on a quiet street between the hustle and bustle of bishopsgate and the allure of multicultural street food and crafts of artistic Spitalfields. The origin of the name is lost in obscurity, perhaps a local dignitary, the owner, the rector of the local church, a policeman hunting down the infamous 1888 Whitechapel murders. During the late 1600’s the Williams symbolised the political and social security to which the city aspired in order to launch Britain to 18th century global mastery and make English the global ‘lingua franca’ of the world.
The Williams Ale & Cider House is continuing this long history with a celebration of our capital’s local breweries. We will specialise in microbreweries and have a constant rotation on our 14 hand pulls and 7 taps. With a bespoke British seasonal menu to compliment your beer or cider.
