The William Wygston was the better of two Wetherspoons I visited over the weekend. It was also packed. There are plenty of tables. But I think we nabbed the last one, right at the rear. Service was quick though. Ales were Marstons Old Empire, Ringwood Forty Niner, Sharps Doom Bar, Ruddles Best, Adnams Broadside, Exmoor Gold & Grainstore Triple B. The cider was also from Grainstore - Hornet, which I'd had before but was quite pleasant. Preferred the Star & Garter up the road, as it has more character. But it's worth trying both if in Wigston.

Well I don't know about 2008 (there was a bad review from then - see below) but now this pub is really worth a visit. It's a Wetherspoon's Pub now and service is excellent, the place is clean - toilets excellent too. It's nicely set out for both drinkers and diners too and not too noisy. Quite busy at lunchtime which is always a good sign. The food is standard Wetherspoon fare but there's plenty of it and it's well presented and the staff are polite and helpful. My party of three had the salmon dish, sausages and mash and steak and Abbot pie. All good and very hot. A little tough meat in the Steak and Ale Pie but that has to be the only complaint. We got the coffee prepared just as we liked it. Ales here include Ruddles, Abbott, John Smiths, Guinness, an IPA and one or two guest beer to choose from before you have to drop to bottled ale or (heaven forbid) to lager.. There's a three hour free car park opposite too.

Me and my family visited this pub and i have to say that i find it disgusting.
The table mats were stuck to the tables and if you do decide to eat there i wouldn't look under the tables as they had nose remains,chewing gum and what looked like maggots under them.
My mother was about to look and i said i wouldn't if i were you and as we sat on a table up the top end of the pub because we had children with us i went over to the fireplace while waiting for the meal and there must of been one inch of dust where it had never been cleaned,well this year anyway.
The menus were sticky and when the meal came one item was missing and when i challenged the amateur behind the bar he just said oh i forgot to tell you we had no mushrooms left so i asked for extra toast instead and 5 minutes later i heard a loud moaning from the kitchen that they had to do more toast
would i go back no way as cleanliness should be paramount with regards to food and indeed this was not on this occation
but please visit and you'll see what i mean as i suggest they shut the place for a clean as you never know what your eating or drinking for that matter
