I have also been coming here for many years. I dropped in today to find the place almost deserted. Still no food whatsoever (that must be getting on for 6 months now) and the much maligned landlord I'm afraid still as surly as ever. And...More

I stopped here whilst out walking, as I fancied a bit of late lunch. The pub looks great from the outside, very quaint with tables out front if you want to enjoy the country views and sunshine. The bar space itself was small, populated by...More

It would be hard for anyone to cook as badly as this. How do you make prawns so greasy? Luckily we were doing a try-out to see if the pub would be suitable for bringing a large party of walkers. Guess what...... Then there is...More

I've been coming to this pub for many years but haven't been in a while. It's a proper pub and can never be described as gastro (in my view this is a plus). However, it needs to be a little more attentive to what people...More

The William IV is an beautiful 16th century country pub in the Surrey Hills conservation area. It has a flagged stone floor, inglenook fireplace with wafting woodsmoke and low oak beams. The perfect pub you sink into, where the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. The food is good, simple fayre with pork from the pub's own pigs. Most of the five real ales are from local independent brewers which are scattered around these parts
