Real Ale Ray left this review about The King Street Tavern

A stunning looking pub with a fine example of Victorian exterior tiling on par with the nearby Eldon. This Wadworth house had eight handpumps with a choice of seven ales. Four from Wadworth and three guest, their guest beers were Upham Tipster, Sharps Coaster and Westgate Atlantic Hop. We went for the Upham Tipster and the Westgate Atlantic Hop, both of which were quite worthy of a refill. The two young bar staff were friendly and welcoming and had good knowledge of good traditional pubs in the local area.

Moby below, may have to wait a while to try again

"TAVERN NOTICE
Dear customers & friends, after nearly nine memorable, sometimes challenging years it is with a heavy heart that I tell you all that my time as landlord of the Tavern must come to an end.
For the last few years it has been increasing difficult to continue to provide the level of customer care & service that I always aimed for. With this last year becoming the most challenging of all of them for various reasons.
I wish to thank you all for your support over the years & hope to come back (on the other side) of the bar soon!
So as from end of Friday night the fourth of March the Tavern will be temporarily be closed.
New Tenants are currently being considered & the Tavern will re-open after essential repairs & a general
re-decoration of the premises has taken place".
