The Three Blackbirds
The Three Blackbirds suffered a devastating fire in 2018, we have been working tirelessly to bring this fantastic building back to life ensuring we retain its charm whilst adding a few modern twists and bursts of colour. And, we have been able to add 9 new bedrooms in The Barn – so you can stay even longer!
The result (we hope!) is, a cosy, relaxed setting to kick off your boots, wellies or otherwise - enjoying time with friends and family. We are foodies at heart – so expect to find pub classics as well as a regularly changing menu that focuses on our local access to amazing meats, award winning cheeses and the best Fenland veg.
Excellent food, enough choice and very attentive friendly staff,
Great early supper with my girlfriends.
Best burgers around.
Always love this place!
Lovely and efficient service. The food was delicious and came out within a good time. It was very dog friendly and we were happy to be able to sit in the restaurant (many ‘dog friendly’ places only let you sit in the bar). Overall, a fantastic experience and we would definitely return.
We were lucky to have a lovely weekend of sun so thought it pups be lovely to catch up with my friend outside … so we booked in last minute!!
Sat outside in the sun and had a lovely meal (main and dessert). Food was delicious as always!!
Literally the best burgers!!
Our new favourite place to go!
Would highly recommend!
Very quiet , good and wine really good though . Newly refurbished
We like the Three Blackbirds and visit regularly however lately the service has been poor. Staff are friendly and smiley but no joined up thinking about the delivery of our drinks and food. We ordered champagne as a starter drink together with a bottle of wine. Our meal arrived very quickly and well before the drinks so champagne was rushed and not enjoyed at leisure. Disappointing as every other aspect of our experience was good

Sharer roast, not worth the price, steak was chewy, no steak knives, steak knives were needed. Sides were lovely, just not enough of them,
Hi Heather, I'm really sorry to hear that the steak sharer wasn't up to our normal quality, and sorry to hear you didn't receive any steak knifes. We do hope that we will see you again. If you would like to discuss this further please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org Three blackbirds team
Lovely Sunday lunch, opted for the Venison and it didn’t disappoint! Quality over quantity! The desert was amazing too! Yeah
Thanks for your lovely review ! Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. Hope to see you again soon, Three blackbirds team
Stayed in hotel attached and went for evening meal. Pricing comparable to other fine dining in area, with small but good wine list being very well priced. Presentation of all dishes was extremely good and flavour/taste very good.
We both enjoyed all courses.
Staff were exceptional, attentive, warm and friendly, but always discreet.
Would highly recommend for both food and a few lovely quiet and comfortable nights away.
We had a nice welcome and attentive service. It would have been nice to have been offered some bread with the mackerel starter, instead of having to order the focaccia which didn't really suit the oily fish. The sea bass (a single fillet portion is fine but this one was a little small) and venison main courses were both excellent. Beers, wines and coffees also first class.
The lighting could have been turned down a little to improve the ambience but I'm being very picky now. We enjoyed it very much and will return!
We thought the Pub had been very well fitted out, with a good ambience.
However, the food was disappointing - the scotch egg was undercooked, the burger was overcooked and the cod scampi was unseasoned and rather bland.
Wonderful location. Very good food and excellent service.
Great service , lovely atmosphere and amazing food
no one at bar when we came in long wait eventually someone came out shown straight to table, then quite a wait before we gave our food order, waitress
was pleasant , starters were nice but main course not brilliant chips were hard and
and not as nice when we were there 6 weeks ago, very disappointing.

Nice lunch but was quite chilly inside with the door open and food was not quite as good as usual - but this is a lovely place that we go to quite often and will continue to do so.
Excellent village pub run by a very well respected small company chain. Well done guys.
Hi Chris, Thanks for the great feedback, Glad to hear you had a lovely experience ! Hope to see you again soon, Three Blackbirds Team

Very polite staff and very pleasant.Portion of food could be larger.
Given the price the quality of the food was very poor.
Fabulous food and dog friendly! Win win
Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit ! We do love dogs. Hope to see you again soon, Three Blackbirds Team

A great meal in a lovely setting. Would recommend to all.
Hi Tanya, Glad you had a lovely time, hope to see you again soon. Three Blackbirds Team
Very enjoyable meal and the staff were wonderful.
Always a lovely atmosphere and great location. I think the menus throughout this chain need a revamp. Tastes nice but not super yummy
Hi Mikaela, Glad you had a lovely visit. Our menu will be changing very soon, Hope to see you again soon, Three Blackbirds Team
Great food & service in pleasant location with tasteful decor and friendly staff.
Went to celebrate wedding anniversary and it was perfect.
Warm welcome from the staff, beautiful location! Food was excellent, with gluten-free diet well catered for. Would highly recommend!
We booked here for a roast dinner and had a vegetarian in our party. I called and spoke to someone at the central office who informed me there would be a vegetarian roast option, although she didn’t know what it was. She said she would add a note to the booking, so they were prepared in advance.
On arrival we were told there was no vegetarian roast dinner option, which resulted in my daughter having vegetables and potatoes for dinner. When it was bought out, the gravy was in a dish as they ‘couldn’t guarantee it doesn’t have meat in it’. I then asked for some gravy which definitely didn’t have meat in it, which was bought out a little while later.
We felt like a nuisance and that it was all a lot of hassle for them. The poor girl serving us was lovely but obviously had to keep going back to the kitchen with our questions, as the chefs did not seem to be forthcoming or helpful. We would not have gone if I had been told on calling that there was no vegetarian option.
Such a shame because the non-vegetarian food was delicious and the lady serving us was lovely.
Hi Christie, Thanks for taking the time to post your experience and I'm really sorry to hear we didn't meant your expectations while visiting us, unfortunately we currently don't have any vegetarian roasts on our menu and I'm really sorry to hear you were told otherwise, we will look into this miscommunication so this doesn't happen again, Again really sorry for any inconvenience caused. Hope we get to see you again. Three blackbirds team.
Lovely roast dinner! Friendly staff and relaxed dining experience! Will be returning soon!
Hi Annabel, Thanks for taking the time to post your lovely comments. See you soon. Three blackbirds team.
The Sunday roast is AMAZING!!!! Meat cooked to perfection!
We loved it ... just wished we'd ordered more veggies to savour the flavour
Excellent all round. A little dark upstairs in the corner making it a bit difficult to read the menu even with glasses on. Charlie our waiter was more than brilliant! Great evening.
Thanks for taking the time to post. Glad you received great serve and food ! Hope to see you again soon. Three Blackbirds team.
Very smart but relaxed gastropub. Food was good and nicely presented but not fussy. Good service. Highly recommended.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. Thanks for taking the time to post ! Three blackbirds team
An absolute gem of a pub defo recommend lovely food nice and relaxed atmosphere and best of all dog friendly
Glad you had a great time, we do love dogs here ! Hope you see you again soon, Three Blackbirds Team
Our first visit for my bestie & I - halfway for both of us to meet.
A beautiful, country pub (with rooms in a separate barn / building at the back). Off the beaten track, but easily found by the sat nav.
Very dog friendly, which we loved, but if you don’t like to eat in a restaurant with dogs, this isn’t the place for you!
Large car park. No disabled parking noted - although I may have missed this??
Had a lovely 3 course meal + coffee.
Great selection on the menu (would’ve preferred the chocolate sauce with Phils doughnuts to be hot - personal preference) and the chips were lovely! Salad fresh. Good vegetarian selection for the bestie. The atmosphere was warm and staff (Lauren H was our server) were inviting, friendly & appropriately attentive.
I didn’t realise there was upstairs seating and I have mobility issues, so will definitely put “downstairs seating only” when booking next time to be on the safe side. (Note that the request I had made with our booking this time, had been read & actioned by the team, which is great!)
The restaurant was busy, but we kept our table all evening and didn’t feel rushed in the slightest.
We usually go to the crown, Stoke by nayland, but the three blackbirds will 100% be our “go-pub” moving forward! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Hi karen, Thank you for taking the time to post ! We are happy to hear you had such a lovely experience with us. Sorry to hear you was but upstairs and will make sure you are sat downstairs next time. We do have disabled parking which is close to the barn rooms if you need to use it next time. Look forward to see you again soon, Three Blackbirds Team
Disappointed with the experience. Queries raised about items on the menu not answered satisfactorily. Food quality average for the price, triple cooked chips overdone and dry. Had to ask for side plates for bread with starters. Insufficient butter provided, had to request more, also the same with milk for coffee. Overall was not terribly impressed and would not visit again. The staff tried hard and were friendly and polite but that did not make up for the average food quality.
Hi Tom, Thank you for taking the time to post about your experience, We are really sorry to hear that your experience didn't meet our normal quality of food & service.
