Bar and Wine List
William’s Restaurant Re-Opens with Online Bookings
The William’s restaurant is now fully open and taking bookings online. We offer lunch from Tuesday to Saturday and dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings. Please see the new procedures in place for COVID-19 here
Although bookings have moved online, you can still call or email us and we will make a reservation on your behalf. Due to the reduced number of tables in the restaurant, we have had to allocate fixed times for sittings – tables of 2 have one and three quarter hours, tables of 4 have two hours and larger tables have two and a half hours. Do please call us if you would like the table for longer and we can adjust this for you.
In July, we completely refurbished our garden space and now offer tables over three levels of hardwood decking under the shade of our famous willow tree. Please book all outside tables by calling or emailing us directly that day (or as soon as we have a reliable weather forecast!)
We look forward to welcoming you to Williams.
Lunch Tuesday to Saturday / Dinner Friday and Saturday
Please book on 01453 832240 or online. Now featuring a barista coffee machine, new cocktail bar and large outside terrace, we change our menu on a daily basis dependent on the daily catch.

Restaurant in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire
Restaurant opening hours have been extended to include both Friday and Saturday evenings, as well as lunch five days per week from Tuesday to Saturday.
The restaurant sits in pride of place in the centre of Nailsworth, framed by a famous willow tree which provides dappled shade for diners in our garden in the summer months.
What’s on offer…
Large French doors open out onto a large terrace where the dappled shade of our famous weeping willow awaits and the sound of Nailsworth’s babbling stream. Tables are strewn outside in the summer months, some perched on the bridge over the river; others on the grass in the full sun. What better way to enjoy fresh seafood ‘al fresco’ with a glass of chilled rosé?
Soft drinks include Luscombe Drinks, San Pellegrino flavours, fresh fruit juices, as well as coke, diet coke, lemonade and a large range of mixers.
Owner Ed Playne is passionate about the William’s wine list. It currently features a wealth of white wines including Picpoul, Sauvignon and a number of white Burgundies such as Puligny Montrachet, Chablis and Macon, all of which pair beautifully with shellfish. Our Provencal rosés are very popular, often enjoyed ‘al fresco’ in the summer months, as is our Grande Reserve Telmont Champagne and large choice of red wines including Rioja, Brouilly, Merlot and Nuit Saint Georges.
