The location of King William is great for walks on a sunny day like today. The place is a nice traditional pub and the selection on the menu also what you would expect. However, the food is expensive and not of a quality to defend it. The selection on the children's menu is good but again expensive as it was... More

It's not easy to find the King William, but it's worth persevering. The location is unbeatable. There can be no better place to end up at for a pint after a country walk. It's now under new management and the new owners could not be more friendly and attentive. The four of us had the appealing special Christmas menu, which... More

Fantastic views across the fields and tucked away in a quiet location. Great for a rambling circuit to build up an appetite and then good food and beer including real ale, Brakspears. Always busy, so wise to book ahead if you are in a group.

A lovely small pub with outstanding views of the Chilterns. Very helpful staff offering a good wine list, a small selection of real ale and a decent menu. My food (chicken and ham pie) was not special but OK, the calves liver was very popular and most were pleased with their dinner. If you order carefully you will get a... More

We've had a table for 10 booked for over a week with people travelling from a long distance to be there. At 6.15pm the night before they phone to say they can't do the table. Terrible service.

This is the second time we have visited this pub for Sunday lunch. Excellent food served in lovely surroundings, staff very friendly and the home made ice cream is to die for! Beautiful views outside. Would highly recommend.
