“Great atmosphere, good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We love the Three Kings. The food is good value with a menu that caters for the different tastes in our family, from traditional to standards with a twist. I do wish there was more of a range of real ales though.

“Night Out”

Having made a booking for a "mum's" birthday,nine of us descended on this very nice Pub / restaurant and had a very enjoyable meal. The food was excellent and the staff very attentive and obliging.

“Consistently good”

We are yet to have a disappointing meal. The portions are huge and the good is always excellent. It's a lovely cosy pub with a nice atmosphere.

“Varied menu - good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

For a village pub the Three Kings offers a varied menu of good quality food. I have eaten here a few times, each time a different choice each equally tasty and satisfying. The service was sunny and efficient with the meals arriving quickly and well presented.

I would highly recommend this establishment.

“Disappointing.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

We visited the Three Kings recently for a birthday celebration. It was a Saturday lunchtime and we were expecting the menu to be a little more tempting than scampi and chips, lasagne and mass produced,I won't mention the brand name, frozen fish and chips. The Cajun Chicken was actually a Mexican wrap with tomato salsa. Our table was so close to the fruit machine that at the end of the meal a customer pushed his way into our space and we felt we had no option but to leave. We were told that the evening menu offered more variety but that excuse was no consolation.
