“Very poor. Never again.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Had good expectations of this place, newish KFC on a busy road.....WRONG!
No one else at the drive through, car park empty.........cogs start to whirr in head and alarm bells gently ringing......
Place the order at the drive through, staff polite, asked to wait in the car park for the order to be brought over, no one else about so think hopefully it will be cooked fresh to order.
Wait about 15 mins, order is brought over and we go on our way as travelling back from a holiday in Somerset. Open bag to find almost black chicken soaked in oil and I really mean drenched and yet still dried up totally. I refused to eat it, chips tasted like they had been re fried but cannot be certain, not what we normally expect from KFC. The whole meal was disgusting and I wouldn't eat any of it for fear of being ill. Had we still been there I certainly would have taken it back.
Maybe we are lucky to have a good one near us that we use normally, also a bad one that we don't use but even they are miles about the Wincanton one!
I will never go there again, alright they might be quiet (watch out for the tumble weed blowing about in the car park!) but no excuse not to cook to order especially when we had waited that long. Kane plus point is that they gave us plenty of wipes, sauces and salt, wonder why?!

“It's a KFC! Beside the A303!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

No-one expects fine dining from KFC any more than they expect halcyon hotel experiences from Travel Lodge; located on the same massive tarmac car park along with a new 'pub' [see previous]. In return for this invasion, Wincanton got a new 'healthy life' cycle track through the local park that seems to peter out after 300 meters at KFC!! You couldn't make it up
