William IV Foleshill Rd William IV (1765 - 1837) was the third son of George III. He joined the navy as a midshipman in 1779 and was soon a captain. He frequently disobeyed the orders of his superiors and violated the rules of discipline so he was never allowed to command a ship. Instead, in 1801 he was promoted to the rank of Admiral of the Fleet. This pub is first mentioned in a sale document of 1837, when the licensee was John Bacon. Interestingly, one address for the pub is 'Bacon's Yard'. In 1982 it was 'a popular local with mock half-timbered appearance'. In 1986 it was taken over by Pele (real name, Bains) who provided Indian cuisine and in 2010 it was the J. K. English Indian restaurant. The building still stands.
