THREE BLACKBIRDS PUB (Newmarket, England - Dining)
Type: Traditional pub fair, including excellent curries
The Three Blackbirds pub in Wood Ditton, the village after which the renowned conditions race staged during the Craven meeting is named, is what an English pub should be. From Newmarket, get on the A1304 and Dullingham Road before taking a left onto the Woodditton Road. When you get to the village, the pub, which dates from the late 17th century, is on the Ditton Green. It's a charming thatched, low-beamed affair with a flagstoned bar serving the all-essential real ale. Most appreciate the pub fayre and the curries always strike the right note. If you're lucky, you might even see a Devil's Dyke Morris Man while you're there. Click here to check out the positioning.
