About the Pub

The Three Tuns has a special place in pub history as it is one of only four pubs in the country where brewing was taking place on-site in the 70's and continues to do so. The brewery itself is a historic tower plant which used to be in the same ownership as the pub and dates back to the 1640's. The significance of the date of establishment of both are commemorated by naming one of the beers 1642! The brewery became a separate enterprise in 2003, but still supplies all the pub's beer. There has been a process of updating the pub over the years, but it has been done sympathetically as befitting a Listed building, and it undoubtedly still has that special feel about it. There are four rooms, each serving a different purpose, and each with its own ambience. The little front bar is pretty basic in a traditional sort of way, but this doesn't seem to deter locals from gathering there. The lounge bar cum dining room, also in the front, has bay windows looking out over the brewery, thus making it a much lighter room. The Snug Bar , with its low ceiling, wood burning stove, easy chairs and a range of games , is a relaxing place to linger. And finally a more recent addition is the Conservatory Bar and Dining Room. It was one of fifteen pubs in the Branch area appearing in the first edition of the Good Beer Guide in 1974. And here's what it said! "Very highly recommended. A friendly pub. well worth a visit. A mecca for connoisseurs of real beer." So, it could well be that this comment is still true after 40 years or so!
