We were here with 4 persons for a lunch. Table should be reserved...The burgers and fisch &chips were delicious. The beer/ale tasty. IMHO one if must-see in London.

Can be a bit cramped on Thursdays/Fridays as quite narrow. Some tables but often too busy to get one. Good range of ales with some interesting flavours. Service fairly quick.

I co-hosted an event at The Williams recently and Jade and her team did a superb job; hugely friendly, great service, excellent food and, all round, they made for a hugely enjoyable event

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

The Williams is a lil’ East London boozer, tucked between the busy City & the artistic Spitalfields. Priding ourselves on our extensive ale & cider collection – with 14 handpumps or gravity pulled ale & cider – as well as a menu of traditional British food & a jazzy atmosphere.
