“Poor”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Burger bun was stale, rest had hardly any taste. The food is cheap but would rather spend a bit more next time and enjoy a meal.

“Good Food at a Reasonable Price.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Our party visited this place during our Staffordshire stay and found it to be reasonably priced and the food was really good too. Service was a bit slow and the staff were civil without being particularly friendly.

We would definitely go back there if we visited Tamworth again.

“Don't even bother”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

I didn't realise standard Wetherspoons food could be so bad. Needing something quick and filling and although I completely understand that you get what you pay for....the cheap ready meal lasagne that was, beautifully slopped on to my plate a metre from where I was sitting, was just awful. Looked bad, tasted even worse. Plus the staff were having a very frank conversation about what customers they didn't like, inclusive of all profanities. Don't get me wrong, a Wetherpoons meal is needed every so often when choice is limited, but I will never ever return this place. Just horrible.

“Good value”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Popped into The Silk Kite for a bite and a pint before seeing Quill.The place was extremely busy but we managed to find a table.Ordered food which is very reasonably priced.Standard pub grub but it tasted very nice.Scampi and chips and for £3.99 the managers special of curry(there is a choice) and chips and nan bread.The food arrived in under 10 mins which considering how busy they were was very good.The real ale was excellent.The staff were very friendly.I would recommend The Silk Kite for good value,Friendly service and of course,the ale.Well done.
