WE DID IT!
We are really proud to have received another accolade. Being Top Rated in the LateRooms.coms Simply the Guest Awards is a fantastic recognition as it is the UK’s only hotel awards based purely on genuine guest reviews.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Following a lovely busy Christmas and New Year (with bookings already being taken for Christmas 2016), we would like to thank all our customers for their loyal support, as well as our staff for their hard work over the hectic Christmas period.
Congratulations to the ever engaging Foyster Family for snapping up the New Years Eve Champagne by winning this years’ annual picture quiz and to Mr. M. Parish for winning a free night B&B in our Grand Christmas Draw. Further prizes of a £50 restaurant voucher are won by Mr. M. Witley and a bottle of Champagne by Mrs. A. Davies.
The year ahead promises even more exciting times for the King William team, marking a fantastic 180 years of King William Hospitality with 11 years at the helm ourselves. Celebrations are on their way – watch this space. But first we kick off January with a variety of refurbishment projects for bedrooms and public bathrooms to maintain and improve our facilities.
In January we see the return of our popular reward vouchers where you will receive a £2.50 voucher for every £25 spent (to be used on your next visit within two weeks of the issue date). What better way to beat the January blues than a delicious meal in one of the four designated dining areas, whether cosying up in the bar, in front of the roaring log fire or unwinding with the family in the child-friendly gallery restaurant?
We hope to welcome you and your friends in support of the Astro Brain Tumour Fund at our Pie, Mash & Pudding Night on Wednesday 20 January. An excellent raffle will be held to raise further funds for this hard working charity. If you haven’t booked a table yet, please do so today for this very worthy cause.
As always, we look forward to welcoming you at The King William and hope you enjoy your visit.
Cheers to a Happy & Healthy 2016!
Very best wishes,
Nick & Lili
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and The King William IV in Sedgeford is celebrating in style with the restaurant’s ever-popular pre-Christmas parties. The kitchen is gearing up for a busy few weeks with a fully-booked Christmas Day lunch and delicious three-course New Year’s Eve menu with only a few tables left. Your favourites from the à la carte menu and popular Sunday roasts are still available throughout December, so why not delight in a hearty home-cooked meal to keep the cold at bay? There’s really no better time to explore the beautiful Norfolk coast, with its empty beaches, abundance of wildlife and picturesque country walks. And upon your return, head to the bar for a heart-warming glass of mulled wine!
The past year has been absolutely amazing – it has all gone rather quickly. The King William keeps growing year on year and 2016 promises to be even more exciting. We can’t wait to kick off the New Year, but first it’s time to relax and fully enjoy the festive season.

THE KING WILLIAM IV, SEDGEFORD, CELEBRATES NEW HEAD CHEF
The appointment of a new Head Chef at The King William IV Country Inn & Restaurant in Sedgeford opens another exciting chapter in its culinary agenda. Chris Marshall, 36, took on the role in early July after acting as sous-chef for three years. Building on the Inn’s excellent reputation for tasty, wholesome dishes, Chris is set to bring his innovative skills to the fore – introducing fresh flavours and quirky touches – keeping pace with all the latest food trends, hygiene and kitchen management.
Chris, who lives locally in Docking with his young family, has grown up around the kitchen and amongst a family with artistic tendencies – both his Grandmother and Father paint and he helped his Mother, in younger days, who managed the Refectory at Ely Cathedral. With an interest in cooking firmly established, Chris moved on to study catering at Cambridge Regional College. Before relocating to north-west Norfolk, Chris worked as sous-chef at Ely Golf Club followed by the position of Head Chef at the Lamb Hotel, Ely.
Owner of The King William, Nick Skerritt, is delighted to hand over the reins to Chris.
“We have established a superb reputation for our restaurant locally over the years, and I know Chris is keen to enhance this with his unique style. Our vegetable and salad dishes have never tasted better. Our customers have a great deal to look forward to.”
Chris cites his ongoing interest in photography as a key factor in his imaginative approach to food presentation.
“I have helped to create many of the Inn’s current dishes and I do have my favourites – the smoked duck entrée, lamb noisettes and raspberry bavarois dessert – but I’m also wanting to blend this with my contemporary approach to flavour and appearance, hopefully to win some awards for my cooking and The King William in the near future – that’s what drives me. We have fantastic local suppliers and seasonal delicacies here in Norfolk which makes my cooking even more enjoyable.”
With his calm nature and modest determination, King William customers are guaranteed a feast for the eyes and taste buds when sampling Chris’s creations!
