It seemed the joint was unpopular with the locals, a third commenting: “Overpriced and underwhelming staff. Only ever went in their once and never again. Awful place.” and a fourth: “Good riddance. Freshly cooked food was always somehow cold and the staff were a miserable bunch”.

Lots of visitors appeared to take umbrage with the cleanliness of the place, one person wrote: “Dirtiest Burger King in the country”. Some commenters were more concerned with what could fill the vacant spot now.

One person is hoping for something drastically different to open, they wrote: “We need a vegan/vegetarian restaurant. Not a coffee shop, not a charity shop. Not a vape shop. Not a betting shop. But a shop that’s useful. Let’s get a shop that serves a purpose. A little Primark would do well in Twickenham”, with another commenter sharing their desire: “How about a restaurant for vegetarians?”

Many shared the sentiment that it is time for change in Twickenham: “Good about time out with the rubbish billionaire corporation bringing in local small businesses” with another commenting: “Time to start using independent smaller businesses anyway”.

Do you live in Twickenham? What do you think they could fill the spot with?
