Party Earth Famous Three Kings Review

The Scene

Famous Three Kings in London’s West Kensington is a big sports bar with tons of TVs tuned to every game imaginable. Catch the action in London with Party Earth.

Located just steps from the West Kensington Station, Famous Three Kings consistently wins Best Sports Pub polls in London, perhaps because this cavernous shrine to sports has enough TVs to satisfy almost anyone’s game-viewing aspirations.

Thirteen plasmas and three big screens, to be exact, all tuned to different football, soccer, ice hockey, baseball, and probably poker matches. Hell, they probably have lawn bowling on the tube in here somewhere, hidden among vintage photos of West London from the 1960s and 70s that dot the otherwise bare white and brick walls.

The predominantly male guests usually start at the long bar up front, grabbing one of the budget-friendly beers on tap before searching the four rooms for whichever screen is tuned to their favorite event.

A small nook across from the bar has leather chairs and a discontinued fireplace that emits some old-timey charm, although that typically disappears behind the standing-room-only crowd of rowdy punters as they hoot and holler at the latest penalty call.

If just watching isn’t enough, groups of happy expats can take to the pool tables up and downstairs, or check out the live music every other Friday – if the sporting schedule allows it.

All-day breakfast and traditional pub grub get quickly taken down after a few rounds, leaving bros of all ages plenty of time to watch the EPL, UEFA, NBA, NFL, PGA, MLB, WWE, UFC…or whatever else they are looking for at F3K.

Tip from Lucas:

F3K posts what’s on each of their TVs, so check their blog, Facebook page, or the sheet of paper tacked up front and head to where it directs you. And if you don’t see what you’re looking for, feel free to ask. With over 71,000 channels available, if they aren’t currently showing something you’re dying to see, they will probably cater to any requests.

  • Crowd

    Rowdy Englishmen, devoted Italian footballers, Aussie and Kiwi rugby fans, NFL fanatics, soccer junkies, a few begrudging girlfriends, and a few awesome ones who can tick off stats with the best of ‘em, early 20s to 40s+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Live rock band every other Friday from 8 or 9pm, but even when the band is playing, the music doesn’t interfere with catching a game in another room.

    Thirteen flat-screens and three large projection screens, all tuned to different sports, most with satellite access to more than 71,000 different channels.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    All day breakfast includes black pudding and sausage. Menu of standard sports bar fare including burgers, steaks, wraps, sandwiches, and 2-for-1 desserts.

    Mezzanine rooms available for hire and table service.

  • Prices

    Breakfast £8.50, grub £5.50–£15.50, 2-for-1 desserts £4–£5. Beer £3–£4.50, wine £3–£5/glass or £11–£17+/bottle, spirits £3–£4.

    Pool £1.50/game plus a £5 deposit.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: sports jerseys, jeans, shorts, flip-flops, track suits, sweatpants, a few blazers on the after-work crowd, relaxed dresses, fitted sweaters, more jerseys.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any big game day for the rowdiest scene, especially for a Chelsea-Fulham soccer match, though any major game day promises a packed pub.

  • Close By

    The Goose (248 North End Road) is a smaller and grungier sports bar with less choice in channels and only one room, but with much cheaper drinks and food.

Sporting Heaven
Jamie C. Mar 14, 2013
If sport is your religion, Famous Three Kings is your church. Located just a stone’s throw away from West Kensington Station, a seemingly unlimited amount of plasma televisions dominate the establishment, matching all the needs of the eclectic mix of Brits, Aussies, Americans and Italians who gather here. Guests can check the FTK’s weekly schedule, which is posted via an internet blog and are recommended to arrive early as seats and tables are snapped up fast. Whilst mostly fixated to the live action, guests quickly consume the reasonably priced pub food, which is often on offer during the sporting action. A selection of lagers can accompany this, with Carlsberg, Stella Artois and Fosters dominating the local’s orders. Saturday is the FTK’s showpiece day, with up to 8 or 9 Premier League games transmitting at once, providing a surreal atmosphere of cheers and groans, as the contrasting success of Man Utd and Wigan Athletic becomes apparent.
decent sports pub
Sam R. Dec 10, 2012
My work mates pointed out this pub to me coz it won a pub award last year or something. It’s a good pub. Lots of sport shown, though they didn’t play the MotoGP when I made a special request, which was annoying. Staff could be friendlier. Also prefer sitting down and having a table during matches, which can be hard to come by here.
good sports bar
Alessia F. Dec 7, 2012
This pub is in my neighborhood and is nice as far as pubs go. There are screens playing all different sport and apparently you can request events at the bar (though they wouldn’t play a motorcycle race when my boyfriend asked for it) and the place is packed on days Chelsea has a match. The prices aren’t terrible for Kensington and people are always really friendly. The only problem is that on match days it’s impossible to find a seat so I’ve had to stand for the whole two hours.
