Trading Style –  Destination community food house.   

Grade II listed in 1962, the King William IV dates back to the 1600s, making it one of the oldest buildings in Kempston and something of a local institution, attracting a loyal local crowd from Kempston as well as regular visitors from nearby Bedford and Milton Keynes. With a reputation built upon wholesome, traceable and sustainable quality pub food, the King William is renowned for its warm welcome and enticing environment, not to mention its versatility. Flagstone floors and a feature fireplace give it all the charm you’d expect of a delightful country pub, yet its space-efficient interior layout makes it a preferred venue for everything from coffee mornings to business meetings, and not forgetting its legendary Sunday night quiz. Meanwhile the spacious rear garden, accommodating a dozen wooden benches, is the perfect spot to enjoy a drink in the summer months.
