Proud to be a Traditional English Country Inn
The King William has been a popular retreat for over a century. Owners, Nick and Lili Skerritt, (pictured right with MP Henry Bellingham), purchased the Freehold in 2005 and have sympathetically restored and refurbished the inn over recent years, adding luxury accommodation. The Inn celebrated its 175th Anniversary in 2011 - a year filled with special charity events and culminating with a special summer party.
The King William continues to offer a traditionally warm Norfolk welcome and, together with their enthusiastic team of staff, Nick & Lili remain committed to maintain and further enhance the excellent reputation built over more than a century.
Tread in the footsteps of Admiral Nelson & Queen Boudicca.
The rich heritage of the Inn and the historic village of Sedgeford dates back many centuries.The Inn proudly bears the regal name of King William IV (3rd son of King George III) who famously abolished tax on alcohol. At the age of 13 he entered the navy and served under local Norfolk Hero, Horatio Nelson, born close by in Burnham Thorpe. The world truly is a small place.
During the Summer months the history of Norfolk's famous daughter, Boudicca, Queen of the ancient Iceni tribes, who trained her troops at Sedgeford, before leading her army against the Romans at Colchester, London and St. Albans, can be relived at the Sedgeford Historical Archeological project.
