The King William IV is situated to the south of Braintree near the main A120. Whilst it is a fair trek from the town centre as Snarling Mallard says, it appears to be Braintree's best pub and my favourite of 10 Essex pubs tried yesterday. The interior is quite compact, with 2 small rooms. You approach the pub from the car park through the garden. I got the feeling that I was probably being discussed as I headed towards the pub, as silence descended when I walked in! This certainly occurred for subsequent customers too. Nevertheless, the landlord seemed like a nice chap and the regulars were quite friendly. The real strength is the ale & cider selection, with 4 of each available. Yesterday, they were Maldon Farmer's Cutty Sark, Mighty Oak Captain Bob, Moody Goose (the in-house brewery) Mystery Mild & Tring Brock Bitter. Ciders were Cetic Marches Lily The Pink & Nell Gwynne & Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon. I went for the Duddas Tun Pear O'Dudda which was quite sweet, but nice. Recommended.

The best ale in Braintree and probably the best pub in the town as well. (though it is a little bit of a trek out but worth it).

A great little Pub and easily the best in Braintree. first time i'd been for a year. The range of ales now numbers four including offerings from Sharps and Batemans, as well as three real ciders. Beware though as the Pub is tiny and always seems rammed which bearing in mind the quality of the grog, is not surprising

This is a great liitle pub that could not be doing more for local and passing trade. There are constantly changing choices of well kept real ales and the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. A beer festival is planned for the May bank holiday.

My brother-in-law calls the King William IV his "office". We had a 'meeting' there last week, where I was able to sample three different real ales. Thoroughly enjoyed myself in the warm, hospitable surroundings of this tiny pub. The beer was good too! The landlord and all the patrons were really friendly, and I'm already looking forward to my next visit.
