This is a review of The King William Pub, 19 Market Place, Glastonbury
The Pub, shown below
Is situated in Market Place, Glastonbury at the start of the Precinct, which runs from the main high street
A Punch Taverns pub, myself and my wife used it, while visiting Glastonbury, during a recent holiday stay in WestBury Sub Mendip, during the second week in January, and were looking for a place to have a cup of coffee, and to get out of the cold and wet weather, which had hit Glastonbury that day
On entering the pub, you are immediately struck by a cosy warm atmosphere and welcoming bar staff, who greeted us with a lovely smile and politely asked what we would like, we visited between 12 and around 1.30pm
The interior of the pub was very cosy as well, with a nice fire and a pool / snooker table situated just round the corner from the far end of the bar.
We had two very nice reasonably priced coffees while in there and got chatting to the bar staff, who were very helpful as we were deciding on going to see the Glastonbury Festival site, but were advised that it is around 5 miles outside of Glastonbury itself and as the weather that day was not brilliant… Wet, Windy and slightly cold, we made an executive decision not to go there.
The King William, also had a very nice and big, skittles alley at the back of the main bar, but located in a back room and was unusual because I have not seen many pubs that have one of these.
Overall our stay was very nice if a little shorter than planned, but we would certainly recommend it as a place to go if you are looking for a warm atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks
