This is a really lovely place where either if you're grabbing a quick drink or entertaining guests they don't let you down - the food really is as good as the service!

We are long time fans of the King William, but our lunch yesterday was exemplary. The service was delightful. a special mention here to Alex. The Hake & Linguine was beautifully cooked, and the Chocolate Mousse with Sorbet was yummy. We will be returning soon.....

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.
