“friendly staff, poor food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

I normally visit Wetherspoons in several towns and it is normally good value for money.
However, my last visit to The King Tun, was rather disappointing.
i ordered a chicken burger and it was tasteless. the bread was too soft and a bit "damp" and the chicken a bit rubbery... it tasted and looked like it was heated on a microwave and then added with tomato and salad. It was just as bad as the Microwave Rustlers burgers you buy in petrol stations. My girlfriend ordered the Chicken wrap, and it tasted better because it was deep fried in batter and looked fresh, apart from the wrap which was soft in the middle, but crusty and cold on the edges.
won't be ordering the chicken burger again!

I've been to Kings Tun several times for dinner, drinks or a large group meet up. They have great drink and food options and the service has always been good.

“Weatherspoons to the Rescue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Weatherspoons may be a chain, but it's quite delicious....I love their weekly specials and the upstairs has a different vibe for when you just want to tuck away with some mates into a corner with a few pints.
