Location and contact

A Traditional Rural Country Pub set in the heart of the tranquil Suffolk countryside just a few miles down a country lane off the A143, and only 10 minutes from Newmarket. A wealth of exposed beams inglenook fireplaces, excellent food and a warm cosy welcome, The Three Ways offers a truly traditional experience. Our food in home cooked traditional English with a a flavour of Spain running through the menu, our our chips are freshly peeled cut and fried to order no frozen here. A a real home cooked experience, Sunday Lunch claimed to be the tastiest and as good as if not better than at home.
