Reviewed 28 January 2014

We stayed one night and had the King John room. All the rooms seem to be at the back in a separate building.

The room was comfortable and clean and the en-suite bathroom was big enough with a bath as well as shower.

Dinner in the main pub was very good. We dined with some older relatives and they found the portions to large. I had the pork belly. Excellent. The pub's owned badged bitter was a tasty brew.

Gripes? Not much. Bulb out in one of the lights that made it a bit dim and the loo seat needed a tinker to tighten it up.......

We stayed here one night as we attended a wedding at Hengrave Hall (next village from Fordham All Saints) They were very accommodating allowing us to check in early so we could change at the inn for a 1.30pm wedding which we really appreciated! The room was average size behind the inn with a nice bathroom. It was clean and decorated in neutral colours the bed was a tad uncomfortable for me ( a bit lumpy) although my partner slept. Breakfast was pre ordered the day before so it was ready for us at the time we selected, it was very good. All in all it was a good stay at a good price with friendly and helpful staff.

We stayed at The Three Kings for 2 nights and would highly recommend it. The room was very clean and comfortable with a hotel standard bathroom. Breakfast was of high quality, cooked to order. We ate there on one of the evenings and found the food compared favourably with any resturant.
Bury St Edmunds is a short drive away with further opportunities for pubs and places to eat.

My partner and i stayed here at the weekend for one night and were very impressed. Staff were very friendly and the room was clean and spacious with everything you need for one night. I was impressed with the breakfast as i dont like greasy breakfasts and my partners full english looked very tasy and my scrambled egg on toast was lovely. Had a few drinks here and its a lovely little pub, definately would recommend and would stay here again when we come back to visit family.

My husband & I stayed for a night to attend a friends wedding in the local area. We booked based on recommendation so didn't really know what to expect but were thoroughly impressed.

The Three Kings is well located & easy to find with ample free parking which is always good!

Upon arrival we were made to feel welcome by the bar staff who organised our early access to the room, and even booked a cab on our behalf to take us to the wedding which was brilliant.

The room itself was well equipped with a TV, mini fridge, coffee/tea making facilities and a lovely powerful shower - and even a hair dryer! The bed itself was super comfy making for a good nights sleep!

Breakfast next day (you preorder and pick a time to go) was really impressive, we had an English breakfast with items picked to suit us and it was delicious (and not remotely greasy)

Overall an excellent pub/bed & breakfast with great helpful staff who made us feel very welcome.

We dined here last week and had what I would describe as perfectly nice pub grub at decent prices. Nothing blew me away but if I was in the area again and after a value for money dinner I would go here again. Very friendly Bar Staff.
