William’s of nailsworth


Restaurant, fish market, deli

William’s Kitchen opened in 1975 at 3 Fountain Street, Nailsworth, selling fresh fish from a marble slab in the shop window, alongside locally caught game. The business went from strength to strength and was instrumental in putting Nailsworth on the foodie map, being nominated one of Rick Stein’s ‘Food Heroes’ and named one of Matthew Fort’s Five Favourite Places to Shop.

William retired in 2014 and local family, Ed and Helen Playne, bought the business. They have refurbished the premises and added a brand new restaurant, now doubled in size, a new cocktail bar, coffee bar, hand-crafted oak shelving and fish counter.

In the fishmongers, the slab is fully stocked from Tuesday to Saturday, selling a vast selection of British seafood from Bridlington Bay Lobster to turbot, John Dory and much more. The fishmongers are highly knowledgeable about fish and will give you any help and advice you need.

In the restaurant, the daily-changing menu offers dishes such as lobster Thermidor, freshly shucked oysters, the famous William’s Fish Soup, moules frites and whole roasted Dover role and non-fish dishes such as rib-eye Steak with Béarnaise and walnut stuffed aubergine with pomegranate. Dishes are also available for collection, subject to ordering.
