Gorgeous interiors, warm and friendly staff, and a wide range of top-quality food and drink make this historic pub in Kensal Green a top spot for a gathering of friends, family or colleagues. Built during the reign of William IV (dubbed the ‘Sailor King’ on account of his having served in the Navy before ascending the throne), this historic pub has been a proud resident of Harrow Road for centuries. As well as beautiful wood panelling, original fireplaces and large windows that allow light to flood into the dining room, there are also plenty of nods to William IV’s nautical past, which add a touch of playfulness to the setting.
Located a short distance from Kensal Green Underground station and Kensal Rise rail station, and close to both West London Crematorium and Kensal Green Cemetery, The William IV is ideal for anyone looking to host a function in North London. Whether it’s a wake, engagement, retirement, birthday or any other kind of event that requires a private room, The William IV has plenty to choose from.
For intimate gatherings of between 10 and 30 guests, the pub’s Nelson Room is ideal. Named after the Admiral Lord Nelson on account of his friendship with William IV, the room boasts the same wooden floors, high ceilings and comfortable seating as the main dining room, with the added benefit of access to outside space at the front of the building. For larger events of 30-100, try The Clarence Room. This room comes with its own toilet facilities and access to the garden, allowing for complete privacy for your party.
Those wanting alfresco space will be delighted to learn of Dorothy’s Gin Garden. This charming space boasts a covered area with comfy seating for up to 40 and a beautiful French oak armoire containing an array of gins from around the world. The garden holds up to 100 and can be booked for summer barbecues and outdoor private parties. Lastly, there’s the pub itself, which can be hired in its entirety for up to 300 guests. Staff are on hand to discuss food and drink requirements and are always more than happy to help, so no matter what you have in mind, they’re sure to deliver.
