user reviews of the King William IV, Fenstanton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Been to the pub a few times recently, always received a friendly welcome, food and service have been excellent and the beer good, shame none of the local Greene King pubs around here sell my favourite Abbot Ale though. Nice smart pub, unlike the two other local ones, the Crown and Pipes looks positively off putting.....

With no BITE review for over four years, I did wonder if the King William IV was still open, but I can report that it is.

It is the first pub that you pass when you drive into Fenstanton from Junction 27 of the southbound A14. When we diverted off the A14 at this exit for lunch in early July, the pub with lots of hanging baskets and half barrels filled with flowers outside, looked very attractive.

But not quite so attractive for me were the two words on the bottom of the sign GREENE KING.

Inevitably, G-K IPA and Abbott were available on draught, as was Brains Reverend James as the guest ale, but I have to say that it was well below par and I have had much better pints of it elsewhere.

Lunch was quickly served and Ive no complaints about the quality; the staff were pleasant too; but the quarry tile floor in the restaurant looked like it had been quite a while since it had last seen a mop and bucket. If that it is representative of front-of-house hygiene, I have to wonder what the behind-the-scenes hygiene standards are like.

As the first impression of the pub was very good, I do wonder if the iffy quality of the beer and the un-mopped floor were just glitches in an otherwise well run operation. So this time I will give them the benefit of the doubt and give a rating of 7/10. If we call again, (and Im sure we will), and things havent improved then I definitely wont be so charitable !!!

Excellent village pub, good food either as bar snacks or restaurant. Always at least 3 real ales including one Guest ale every month
