About the Pub

With a nickname of the King Billy, this is a cosy Victorian gem nestling on the edge of town just a stones throw from the Motorpoint Arena. A family-run free house that oozes charm and character, it is a haven for real ale drinkers, with a choice of seven microbrewery ales from near and far, as well as up to five ciders. Guest beers are varied, always well kept from a very experienced cellarman. Occasional live music and televised sports feature, with sports other than football usually taking preference. Refurbishment during 2014 created an additional room, a covered outdoor smoking area, and a rooftop terrace. Awarded the National Inn Sign of 2015 by the Inn Sign Society after a refurbishment of the original, now including the pub's nickname.

Historic Interest

A fine early Victorian public house, fully licensed under Jas. Cordley in 1832 (White's Directory). It is named for the monarch on the throne at the time of the 1830 Beer House Act, which allowed anyone to buy a licence to make and sell beer for just two guineas. Born in 1765, he was king from 1830 to 1837. Known as the "Sailor King" for his service in the Royal Navy and a friend of Lord Nelson, he was husband to Queen Adelaide and uncle to Queen Victoria. The King William IV is in Nottingham City Council's Sneinton Market Conservation Area. King William IV has an entry on Nottingham Civic Society's Draft Local Heritage List (09 December 2013).
