I visited The Williams Ale and Cider House as part of a work function so am unable to comment on the sit-down meal option available. We had reserved an area of the venue and the staff were very helpful throughout the evening, even though we...More

My first visit and I was impressed. There was a good range of beers and ciders and their service was excellent and friendly.

Staff messed up the drinks order and refused to give us the drink we ordered when we complained (despite the fact that the drink we were returning was still full). Instead of apologising, staff were very rude and told us we had to pay again...More

We were here with 4 persons for a lunch. Table should be reserved...The burgers and fisch &chips were delicious. The beer/ale tasty. IMHO one if must-see in London.

Can be a bit cramped on Thursdays/Fridays as quite narrow. Some tables but often too busy to get one. Good range of ales with some interesting flavours. Service fairly quick.

Came here on a relatively quiet Saturday lunchtime for beer and food. At least 6 beers on tap plus ciders and a perry, all well kept. Samples were offered to our guests so they could choose the best one for them. Simple food menu, pies,...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

The Williams is a lil’ East London boozer, tucked between the busy City & the artistic Spitalfields. Priding ourselves on our extensive ale & cider collection – with 14 handpumps or gravity pulled ale & cider – as well as a menu of traditional British food & a jazzy atmosphere.
