The Three Kings was my favourite pub in Worcestershire over the weekend. Yes, it has a dirty and worn feel to it and there is an strong smell of damp. But, it also feels very lived in and is as traditional a country pub as you will find anywhere. We entered through the left-hand entrance as you approach the pub. The small room was empty, with no sign of any life. We wandered through what felt like a store cupboard and eventually found the main room where we found the owner and a few other customers. Handpulls dispensing the ales and Old Rosie cider are hidden away amongst the clutter. But, ales are listed on a small blackboard. On our visit, they were Butcombe Original, Hobson's Twisted Spire, Church End Silver Jubilee, Parkway Session IPA & Bullen Tawny. I sampled the latter, which was certainly to my taste. A number of jars of pickled items were on sale near the doorway. A fabulous pub where conversation reigns. Just my sort of pub and a decent 9/10 from me. I'd love to have this as my local.

I staying in the nearby Gilberts End Farm B& and was told about the Three Kings, I checked it out on BITE and was intrigued by the comments. Agreed this is probably one of the dirtiest pubs you will ever find, BUT WHAT A GEM. YOU MUST MUST MUST VISIT. You will be charmed, you are not, then you have no beer in your vein, no soul, no heart.

Speaking as a ‘Real Ale Romantic’ I would suggest the gentleman below heads to one of the many thousands of pubs around the country which have been steam cleaned and smartened by their brewery and pub-co masters, or indeed one of the many thousands of giant multi-national owned coffee houses, if he objects to the standard offered by the Three Kings. Thus the modern man need never suffer the terrible burden of entering a pub which maybe a bit rough and ready around the edges, which may have a bit of grime about the place, where local people may speak to you unprovoked and where there is no formal complaints procedure directed to a head office.
There are plenty of them, sir, you need never again darken the door of this amazing old place, which indeed has a very great deal of ‘character’.

It is a dirty pub and could do with a complete clean out. There is flaking paint, plaster falling off, cobwebs and real dirt. Real ale romantics will see it all as "character".
The land lady is very eccentric to the point of arrogance. R. A. R's will see her as a "character".
I had a bacon butty and wanted a coffee afterwards. The butty was fine but I am still waiting for the coffee. Said landlady stumped off muttering curses at the very thought.
It is an experience that will divide opinion completely.

Came here on a ale drinkers minibus outing on diamond jubilee weekend, apart from the weather we werent dissappointed. The ales were good and there was a nice friendly atmosphere even though we weren't "yokels", lovely little treasure of a place, 8/10
