William IV Restaurant Review

: This converted 1930s pub in trendy Kensal Rise has a bar, a garden for outdoor dining and a candlelit dining room, all decorated with old Chesterfield sofas and wooden tables and chairs. The food is good, honest, British style with starters such as soup of the day or whitebait with tartar sauce; mains of rib-eye steak, sausage and mash or pan-fried salmon; and traditional desserts from sticky toffee pudding to crumbles, all well priced. It’s very popular with the young crowd.
