“Great beer, great food and great atmosphere!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Great selection of beers including "Sherlock", which is the pub's own Pale Ale, and Punk Double IPA from Scotland. Good pub food. Friendly landlord. Nicely old-fashioned 1970s style decor with long tables and simple chairs. Not your pretentious 1990s+ style gastro pub. Strongly recommended.

“Excelent wednesday burger buffet!”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

This dark place located besides the Main Building of Uppsala University offers a nice, simple but tasty indian buffet for lunch, but eventually, they turn into an amazing burger buffet on wednesdays, where the meat, but specially the fries make the joy of the week for burger lovers. A plus: the price, which only gets high with the drinks, but the sole buffet is on 79 kr, a bargain for people starving. Nice personnel, great atmosphere specially for large groups, good variety of beers, and they offer also a taco buffet on thursdays, which particularly I didn't appreciate so much, but some others might find it attractive as well.

“Cheap – chirpy – cosy - great beers – great pub meals.”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

Though close to the grand old university library, to other central parts of the university and the cathedral, this true English pub is tucked away in a lane which for strangers to Uppsala can be hard to find – but it is worth the effort!

The Anglo-Saxon concept of pub & pub meal works splendidly at William’s. Their Indian buffet lunches are a treat for your palate and your wallet. A not-so-common combination in Sweden, unfortunately!

You find as great a variety of beers as of people at William’s. English spoken.

Highly recommended.

“Been an English pub since 1990”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Williams started by me and David Parry in Aug 1990 and has always to my knowledge been an English speaking pub, all our personnel even in the early days were from Uk, Ausie, Kiwi or other English speaking nations and the concept has always been to be as English as poss in a foreign country. Therefore one can not say at last an English speaking pub, it's been there for 22yrs.

“Shifting Face”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

This is a place with great food and atmosphere! Old English style, with pub food + Indian food. Great combination!

I went there with a friend and ate well, drank well and had a nice time. First it was a quiet place, but all of a sudden around 11 pm the disco ball started spinning, and the place was filled with a much younger crowd. In my head, there was mostly mossy old university people - and there were - before middle age 45 turned into middle age 19.

Though - staff, food, drinks and the interior was great!
