Visited in 2012. Thought Iíd put all my reviews from that trip in but obviously I hadnít so apologies for the lateness. Didnít manage to make it here on our recent October 2014 visit but that was just through lack of time.
A street corner Victorian boozer a bit off the beaten track. Comfortable, if "no frills", and cosy with a very friendly vibe.
Has a long-established high reputation for beer. Unashamedly cask-centric. You may find bigger ranges around Nottingham but the selection here is well chosen and in excellent condition. Youíll usually find some Oakham ales here.
Well worth a visit.

Really liked this place. Low-ceilinged, dark, with rustic furniture. Around 10 handpulls featuring favourites from Oakham. I had a Whim Flower Power which was served in great condition. Clingfilm wrapped cobs available too, which is always a bonus.

A cosy, old fashioned street corner local with a good beer range.
The King William IV is a great little pub on the edge of the city centre. It has friendly service, friendly locals and an unusually good choice of interesting beers. Thereís a nice enclosed patio lit by fairy lights too. (Visited 15 July 2012).

Known locally as the King Billy, this excellent pub has established itself in a short few years as one of Nottinghamís best real ale venues. Although some pubs have a broader selection, the beers at the Billy are usually nearly all world class. In addition to their superb regulars - Oakham JHB and Bishops Farewell - they often feature beers from breweries such as Thornbridge, BrewDog, Whim, Abbeydale, and Dark Star as well as others from the Oakham portfolio. The atmosphere is casual and friendly, as youíd expect from a back-street local - and itís a bit old-fashioned in keeping with that tradition. The service is always first-rate. Although hot food is unavailable, the filled rolls ("cobs" in the vernacular) are excellent, as are the pork scratchings, if you go in for that sort of thing. Although itís slightly outside the city centre, the King Billy is a must-visit for any beer enthusiasts visiting Nottingham.
