About William IV London

Classic pub grub dishes, such as fish and chips, steaks and burgers are the stars of the all-day menu at The William IV in Kensal Green, an establishment which also lays claim to being one of the most historic pubs in north-west London. Built during the reign of William IV – also known as the Sailor King – this spacious pub has been a proud resident of Harrow Road for over a century and displays a number of nods to its namesake, from nautical decorations to the names of the function rooms.

Located a short walk from both Kensal Green Underground and Kensal Rise Overground, The William IV is as much a destination for drinking and dining as it is a local for residents. The spacious pub and dining room boasts beautiful wood panelling, original fireplaces and large windows that allow light to flood in, making for a bright, airy space in which to enjoy filling pub food and a range of beers, wines and spirits.

The kitchen is led by Michael Mannion, an incredibly well-travelled chef who has worked everywhere from fine-dining restaurants to traditional country pubs. Mannion is passionate about using local producers and seasonal ingredients at all times and brings enthusiasm and skill to the classic British menu he’s designed. He particularly enjoys rustling up a hearty Sunday roast, which is the star of the show.

Served on a large family platter in the pub’s charming garden or by the roaring fire, it’s the perfect family meal, particularly when paired with a pint of real ale or a glass of Malbec. Expect heaving plates of roast Somerset chicken with sausage meat stuffing, roast Belted Galloway sirloin of beef, and Herdwick lamb, all served with mountains of potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire puddings. Needless to say, advance booking is recommended for Sunday lunch.
