user reviews of the Silk Kite, Tamworth

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A Lloyds No 1 that never fails to disappoint ! I think it can be summed up by the fact that centre stage is given to a large DJ mixing desk. Has very little commitment to real ale, with several of the 10 handpumps usually being out of use. This time there were only 2 guests available. I hadn’t intended to go in here this time, but needed to use the loo. Nonetheless, I did decide to have a drink there – but the bar staff were so dilatory that in the end I walked out !

My 1st visit to Tamworth and I sought out this pub to a) tick off another 'spoons and b) take a look at the interior as previously commented on.

A good sizes pub with a nice atmosphere when I was in, as with most 'spoons the real ale choice was good and he pint I had was excellent.

Busy pub with a lot of elderly customers having their breakfast.

One of the nicer and definetly friendlier pubs I have been in recently.

Worth a look in you're in Tamworth.

This former electricity showroom (and Chicago Rock Cafe) retains quite an impressive art deco exterior, including a distinctive clock tower. Inside, the dark decor gives the place a rather gloomy appearance as soon as you get away from the front windows. There are two banks of five handpumps, but as they are on opposite sides of the central island bar the full choice of real ales isn't immediately apparent (and this isn't helped with one being off, two 'available soon' and the Ruddles being doubled-up). However, my pint of the local Dragon Smoke Stout from Beowolf Brewery (1.90) was first class.
