A new local restaurant at the centre of a controversy involving the future of a bowling green and club claims that its Facebook page has been hacked, after an offensive status appeared to have been posted by the page this morning.

King Khan bar & restaurant at the old King George V pub on Bristol Road, Northfield, opened just before Christmas. The opening was greeted with a mixed reception from local residents with some pleased to try it but others vowed to boycott it following a dispute between the owner and the King George V Bowling Club, which occupied the bowling green on the site.

With the owner and club unable to reach a resolution, the bowling club have now moved off site.

Many have tried the restaurant with plenty of favourable reviews on their Facebook page. However, many have also posted negative comments and a Facebook page Boycott Kings Khans Until KGV get their bowling club back appeared.

This morning a status appeared on the restaurant’s page reading: ” F*** THE LOCAL COMMUNITY, WE AT KING KHAN’S ARE HERE TO STAY!!! F*** THE BOWLS, 80 YEARS?? FREELOADING B*******!!”

A subsequent status from the page says that the account has been hacked and the page will be deleted and police will be informed.

King Khan’s has been contacted for further comment.



  1. I would love to know which member of the bowling club has the capability to hack a Facebook account! Someone is hiding a hidden talent. I reckon it’s one of the pensioners or children, they are always up to no good!

    If it’s not too much trouble can I request our technology wizard drops by KK to offer a lesson on how to use a spellchecking tool.

  2. i was only wondering about the place the other day after getting a menu through the door,went looking for reviews on line and caught up with dispute about the bowling green. cant believe it’s still rumbling on.

  3. cum on peeps why is u critising the spullin? its the content init not the the spolling that mutters.
    yes I am having a laugh.
    I hope the restaurant is a success and the bowling club can sort things out. this sort of “hacking” does no one any good.
    Northfiled needs successful business
