What's on at the William IV?

Welcome to the William IV Pub

The William IV Truro is a lively pub situated on Kenwyn St in the heart of the city, serving fantastic food all year round using fresh local produce. The décor is a comfortable blend of old and new, creating an atmosphere which is relaxed, informal and individual. Relax in front of the real wood burner on comfy sofas and enjoy the atmosphere of our lounge bar with a well chosen pint of St Austell Breweries Finest Ale or a glass of wine from the wine list featuring classics as well as less known producers.

Alternatively you can relax over a long leisurely lunch in our beautiful conservatory with views over the patio and garden area. Forget the hustle and bustle of the city going about its business just outside the door, just chill out for a while and enjoy our hospitality. Shopping is hard work so after chasing the bargains and delights that Truro has to offer. Why not join us for Lunch or Dinner and rest those weary legs.

Our aim is to provide the best quality food and drink with the best customer service in a relaxed comfortable and safe environment, where nothing is too much trouble from our sociable and enthusiastic team of staff. Everybody is assured a warm welcome from an excellent team of staff who are always on hand to help in any way they can.
