“Good honest food”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

As with all Wetherspoons I've visited you know what you're getting. The wife and I both had steak as we know the steaks aren't nuked. Both asked for medium-rare and they were cooked to perfection. The wife didn't like the peas much but they tasted fine to me.
6 different ales on and I have to say the Marstons Old Empire was fantastic.

“Stay Away!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Unfortunately, our visit to the Kings head was not pleasant. Surrounded by dirty tables, we were served cold food, and food that was not as described. In a chicken pasta dish, there was no chicken and the club sandwiches consisted of dry toasted bread with one piece of chicken, bacon and cheese. We have visited this restaurant before and had satisfactory meals, maybe this experience was a one off, but we shall not be back to find out.

“Staff go out of their way not to serve you.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Staff spend more time talking to each other than serving. Waited at the bar and a member of staff walked past me and out to the back of the bar. Rather than serve me another member of staff went to get them! When served they continued to talk and barely acknowledged I was there.

“Saturday Lunch”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Having gone to Monmouth to do some shopping with my wife we decided to call in to the Kings Head for a drink and a spot of lunch.The meals are basic and cheap but are enough for a light lunch and it seems to be popular with alot of people eating.This gives a nice atmosphere and the staff were very helpful and the service was quick.
