Woodbridge Royal William

Woodbridge Royal William

also traded as King Billy, Victoria

closed 1973

4 Theatre St

grid reference TM 269 492

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Royal William's license was issued in 1843. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.

Now a private residence, the building dates from the 18th century.

It's shown on this OS town plan of 1881.
