Lunch at The King William, Bath

If you've never been to The King William, you need to go now. It's a modern take on the hearty British pub, with our favourite dishes taken to a new level through beautiful presentation and an interesting combination of flavours.

We were recently kindly invited by the team at The King William to review some of their food but we had no idea just how good the food was going to be (spoiler alert: amazing).


We started with a couple of appetisers. Homemade warm sourdough bread and rolls, haggis croquettes which came with smoked beef dripping mayo and butternut and lamb croquettes.

They came with the gentleman's relish which was a really innovative and delicious sauce: bone marrow butter, shallots, confit garlic, chives, tarragon, beef fat and lemon zest juice.


We then moved onto starters. We chose the twice baked blue cheese souffle which came with harissa nuts and red onion chutney. This was literally incredible 🤩. 

We also got the skewered Argentinian red prawns which came with a red pepper sauce which was also delicious.


For our mains we ordered the pan-fried salmon which came with cauliflower, braised chicory, grapefruit beurre blanc and puffed salmon skin. This was cooked to perfection.

We also ordered the treacle beef brisket which came with dauphinoise potato and tender stem broccoli. This was also delicious. The beef was really tasty and the dauphinoise potatoes were amazingly creamy.


As sides we had buttered cavolo nero with toasted almonds, and the truffle & spinach macaroni cheese balls. By this point we had been really happy with everything that we had ordered but the macaroni balls really blew us away.


By this point we were pretty full but the desserts looked amazing and we needed to try them. We ended up going for the sticky toffee pudding which came with a beautiful toffee sauce and clotted cream icecream.

And the frozen lemon curd which came with a lemongrass sorbet (omg!!) and earl grey shortbread.



The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly with a strong local feel to it which is sometimes hard to come by in a city that seems to be increasingly dominated by chain restaurants. The wait staff were so lovely, and the food really was incredible. 

We would 100% recommend The King William for anyone who's looking for a pub with delicious food that offers something a little bit different.

If you're looking for somewhere for Valentine's Day, why not check out their special menu (here). The food looks amazing.

Thanks once again to the chefs & waiters at The King William! You were amazing 😋. We will be back soon!
