With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we have been pondering the topic of love. At William’s our thoughts naturally turn to the pescatorian and, somewhat to our surprise, we came across an article about fish who mate for life. Who knew?

The lengths a Panamanian Chalk Bass go to are impressive; these stripy neon hermaphrodites will actually change gender numerous times in a day in order to please their mate. Now we wouldn’t expect any of our customers to contemplate such extreme measures, but if you want to show your other half how much you love them, what could be better than an exceptional meal from William’s?

Sadly, our restaurant cannot be open this Valentine’s Day, so instead the William’s chefs have channeled their love of fish and fine dining into a menu of chef-prepared dishes to help you celebrate with the one you love.

Rest assured, if Lockdown means you can’t be with the one you love, or if you simply haven’t found that fish in the sea yet, we’ve got you covered. You can still love yourself with a fabulous meal for one.

To request a meal, you simply have to send us an email. We do ask that you place your order for the meal, and for any particular fish you wish to buy, before lunchtime on Tuesday 9th February as this is the cut off time for our suppliers. We will obviously do our very best to fulfil any orders placed after that time, subject to availability. Valentine’s Day meals will be available for collection on Saturday 13th.

On Friday and Saturday nights, we continue to offer our very popular takeaways including GF options, so do get in touch if you would like to book a slot between 5pm and 8.15pm. The menu can be found on our website, and may vary slightly from week to week.

We wish you safe and well, and hope to see you in the shop at Williams from Thursday to Saturday. If you are shielding, don’t forget you can collect your order from our car park by prior arrangement.

* Disclaimer: No Panamanian Chalk Bass were harmed in the making of this menu.
