The plate was piled high with well-cooked (not over-cooked) vegetables, four slices of roast beef, crunchy roast potatoes and a beautiful Yorkshire pudding. All topped off with very tasty gravy. Excellent value at just under £14! Well worth a return visit!

Situated in a leafy Surrey village, The King William IV offers a quality gastro pub experience in a relaxed and homely atmosphere. We have tried to combine contemporary details and a modern quality offer, without losing any of the traditional character of this beautiful historic building. During the colder months you can gather round a roaring log fire and in the Summer, dine alfresco in the beer garden or have a glass of chilled wine on the patio terrace. The King William offers a wide selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, with a fantastic wine list – we have over 11 wines by the glass - and there is always a local Surrey produced Real Ale on tap. The Pub is very popular with Walkers and Ramblers as it is so close to many local places of interest - Royal Horticultural Society's Wisley Gardens is minutes away and the National Trust has Hatchlands Park, Clandon Park and Polesden Lacey all near by. Then 10 minutes away is Painshill Park, one of the finest 18th century landscape parks
