Description: 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.

We ate here for maybe the fifth time with visiting friends, having explained why we loved the food at our "local" more that any of the may restaurants in the centre.

Although our guests thought the starters were on the small side, everyone loved their dishes.
The plaice I had was perfectly cooked and delicious. My husband's pork with beans earthy and robust.

We chose to eat upstairs as it feels a little more special than in the pub downstairs. The evening would have been perfect if we had been offered bread, if we hadn't been left to light the candles on our table ourselves and if water had been offered rather than having to ask for it.

This little pub is located on a corner in Bath on the main road that goes in and out of the City from the east.. It looks very unassuming but offers meals that would put many fancy restaurants to shame. The fish was fresh and perfectly prepared. The homemade sorbet for dessert was also delicious. Overall, excellent value. It appeared to popular with the locals so reservations are probably necessary.

food is very interesting
the rooms upstairs are just great for an informal meal, especially with friends, or as a couple.
