A decent looking pub situated on one of the main streets through Truro.
Once inside the bar faces in a fairly large square shaped room,it is part carpeted and bare barded,there is a raised are on the left side,there is bench seating,normal tables and chairs and some tall tables and chairs.
The pub is a St Austell tied house,we had a drink of St Austell Tribute,which was a decent drink,the other real ales were HSD and Harvest Moon.
Food was being served and background music was playing.
A decent and comfortable pub to have a drink in.

Disappointed with this St Austell pub today as the HSD was quite sour and had to be returned. I was told it was a new barrel, but they did change it for a Tribute. Enjoyed sitting out in the garden here but the beer quality was not all that good.

I guess with a name like the William IV the place dates to the 1830s and it has the Georgian sash window look, as well as two front facing gables, one projecting giving a slight L-shape to the frontage. The pub is a St Austell pub and in white render, with black paintwork and beamed gables. There is a patio and conservatory dining area to the side.

The interior is an open-plan room in a U-shape around the serving bar, with the conservatory area. The decor is green and coffee walls, with some patterned wallpaper, mainly stone flag floor (though some carpet) and a white ceiling. There are a few fireplaces and it is set out mainly for dining with neat tables and chairs, with some high stools and some sofas - a little too foody for me personally, but i have experenced far worse! There was no TV that i saw, or background music at my visit. I didn't eat here either, but i kind of wish i had. There were some old photos on the walls and the place clearly has live music on every so often. The service was good, despite being busy, i was acknowledged and that is all it takes - a good mixed clientele were present, generally eating.

Beer; usual tap stuff with a couple of ciders, along with St Austell's Tribute, Proper Job and a decent Trelawny on handpull.

It has a light and airy feel despite being a foody place and the service and beer were spot on - i would return, especially if eating with Mrs Soup and the soupettes
