Three KingsChurch End, Hanley Castle
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
An unspoilt 15th-century country pub on the village green, near the church, that's on the National Inventory of Historic Interiors. It remains a rare example of a place for conversation over a beer, which has been run by the Roberts family since 1911. There is a small snug with a large inglenook, serving hatch and settle wall. Nell's Lounge, which has another inglenook and plenty of beams, is reached through the side entrance. There's also a small side room with no bar. The three guest ales are often from local breweries and include a stout or porter. Live music Sunday evenings and regular lunchtime sing arounds on Fridays. A popular beer festival is held in November. Events to support Acorns Children's Hospice have raised many thousands of pounds. Cash only.
