Review on King William

Once a street-corner boozer, the King William has been miraculously transformed in true gastro pub style by Charlie and Amanda Digney. Inside, it's a funky cosmopolitan mish-mash of village hall tables and chairs, 'de rigueur' bare floorboards and gold flock velvet curtains; soul music and reggae plays in the background and a trendy crowd congregates.

Free-range, organic and locally reared meat is one of the mainstays of the menu, along with fish from Cornwall and vegetables courtesy of Bath's market gardens. Lunchtime offerings can be as simple as salt beef sandwiches or pork chop with apples and pears, but things move up a notch in the evening.

For openers, you might choose between terrine of pigeon and rabbit or beetroot and goats' cheese salad, while mains could run to rack of lamb with turnips, parsnips and basil oil, whole wild sea bass with roast fennel and hollandaise (for two to share) or butternut squash risotto. Round it all off with chocolate cake or fig and almond tart with plum ice cream. Unusual draught beers from independent breweries are alternatives to the creditable selection of wines.
