The Famous Three Kings Review

The Famous Three Kings is featured in these Guides:

Now the Famous Three Kings is definitely one for all you avid sports fans. What more could you possibly want than a huge, friendly pub serving cracking food and stacks of beer whilst showing every sports event you could imagine. Rich, the larger than life landlord and part time comic commentator, prides himself on the friendly atmosphere and just ask him for any televised sporting event and he'll whack it on one of the multitude of screens that flicker away with sporting drama.

On my visit we managed to grab a booth, complete with its own TV screen as a plucky welsh rugby team scared the life out of england in the World Cup. The atmosphere was absolutely tremendous with a huge crowd proving this place really pulls in the punters, whoever they support. We ate a mammoth portion of a fry up and drank lashings of Guinness, now the only way to watch any match in my eyes. Plus being right next to the tube, it's particularly conducive to an all-dayer.

All the draught beers are available in jugs at £11.80 and the food is a reasonable price for its size. Pints are around £2.20 each. Rich's staff are all very attentive and do their best to add to the atmosphere.

Rich has obviously thought of everything sports fans want at their pub, even the age old problem of needing the loo in the middle of the game is sorted with commentary booming out in all the toilets so you don't miss a thing.

The pub offers an impressive and possibly umatchable 40,000 channels! So if its the latest ice hockey game from the US in Czech you're after the Famous Three Kings is undoubtedly the place for you. This is one of the best places in London to watch any sporting event, and gets a big thumbs up from me! more

“Nice enough place on the inside and so easy to get to be right next door to the tube station - more of a Bar then a pub. However be very careful about ordering a soft drink there - they totally fill up the entire glass to the very top with ice first and then pour in the soft drink - by far the most watery cola I've had in London in years and quite expensive. So using the words "No Ice" before every order is very important here. Also their overhead signs says there are two for one deals available everyday and when we went there at 6pm on a Saturday - there was a single sheet of A4 paper just printed off with a very short list of food available saying sports day menu. The pub is known for showing sports all day, everyday so this could be a permanent menu for all we know. The burger and chips tasted good and was served in quite a nice space saving plate. However the quickly done up menu didn't explain it contains bacon, etc in it either which Jewish or Muslim customers especially might appreciate to know in advance before placing their orders.. Also the wait to be served is very long. When we went there it wasn't all that busy - just 6pm on a Saturday with no major games happening but the staff that were there took forever to serve you and when they did you had to repeat your order several times as they were not native speakers of English, so you struggled a bit to get your order in.”

“camne to three kings last night afetr reading the review from fluid and must say both the place and the review is spot on. with tv's everywhere showinmg all the european games plus the cricket, the problem was not knowing which to watch and where to stand. a roar from 1 side told us that newcastle had just scored and sighs of disbelieve from another end of the bar that marseilles had knocked one in against liverpool. an awesome atmosphere improved more by Rich (?) adding his bit on the mc. you can even request a particular game to be showed on the individual small screens. i've been converted and from now on the famous three kings will be the only place to watch any sport for me”

“My old local. Great for any sport. Numerous screens showing differing events. Quick service from the 2 large bars and the food is of average pub standard (not bad for the boys, but you wouldn't take a first date there!) All in all great for a sunday watching English, Italian and Spanish football oh and that game with a peanut as well!!!”
