SquareMeal Review of William IV Kensal Green

Big and jovial, The William IV brings a much-needed spark to the soulless area between Willesden Junction and Kensal Rise. It’s bright, bouncy and perfect for the young crowd who adore the retro-chic furnishings. There has been a change in the kitchen of late, and the focus is now on luxe European and Asian flavours such as seared tuna with Vietnamese salad, or chicken, foie gras and wild-mushroom terrine to start, then baked cod with chorizo, finishing with pear and cardamom cake. Well-chosen wines (from £15 Chenin Blanc to £40 Pouilly-Fuissé) provide the accompaniment. Check out the bar menu for less chi-chi burgers (beef, chicken or veggie) and charcuterie plates – a better match for the lagers and real ales. A pretty garden and four boutique bedrooms add further appeal.

I had Tapas here last Saturday with the girls and a boogie after! The food was amazing especially the chicken livers..beautifully presented and very tasty. The staff weren't too attentive(which i hate) and very friendly .

This pub has now changed hands and no longer does tapas. It's a real shame as it was the best tapas I've had in this country.
