One of London's oldest gay pubs, the King William IV in Hampstead has been a gay hangout since the 1930s. There's a good mixture of clientele, many of whom pop in for a few drinks after a walk on nearby Hampstead Heath. You'll often find a long queue outside for the adjacent crepe stall (also highly recommended!).

KWIV was one of the first pubs I visited in London - it was one of the earlier stops on my fresher's pub crawl with my hall and its weekly pub quizzes hosted by a drag queen and Thursday £3 cocktails quickly...more
A solid 4 star local gay bar that doesn't have any kind of sceney hangups, the King William is a beacon of rainbows and mulled wine halfway to the top of that glute-burning Hampstead hill.
I love a gay bar with a sense of normality, perfect for after work drinks or
meeting up with friends in the North...
They have what I would consider to be one of the best mulled wines I've had over the...more
Terrible pub, run down, unfriendly, beer garden is a dump, food is over priced and awful. Beer and wine selection is poor. There are many better pubs in Hampstead. Avoid!!more
Had a nice little lunch here with my London friends. Tapas menu and a side of fries really hit the spot after an overnight from Miami. We had small plates of Beef, Chicken and Shrimp. All were very well seasoned and tasty. Beef was especially nice. The bar keep was especially friendly and attentive. Certainly would dine here again.more
