All cream-panelled walls & crackling fire, this regal boozer is a world away from the bawdy bars of Shoreditch. The William IV has been under new ownership since summer 2010 – a change that has brought a decidedly more gastronomic twist to the food. The menu offers nostalgic British favourites, with well-priced dishes to suit varying appetites & times of the day. The 20- & 30something punters tuck into brunches of kippers with bubble & squeak, or smoked salmon & scrambled eggs on sourdough, snacks of potted shrimp on toast, oysters & devils on horseback, & dinners of shepherdess pie followed by lemon posset with shortbread. Polite, capable staff serve pints of Black Sheep, Timothy Taylor & Greene King IPA, & the wine list features a decent selection of Old World bottles, with some original choices.
