About the Pub

Single bar on ground floor in a large room with sofas around a large fireplace with TV on the wall. Function room in cellar. Walls in the cellar room are believed to have been part of Bungay Castle. Under new management as of July 2020.

Historic Interest

Built on the site of an older building (possibly dating from 1540) that was destroyed by fire in 1688. Also listed at Market Place. Historically listed as a commercial inn & posting house. A report in the Ipswich Journal on 10 Oct 1801 states that Robert BIRLING, is leaving The KINGS HEAD, Beccles & moving to THREE TUNNS Inn, Bungay at Michaelmas. A report in the Ipswich Journal on 14 Oct 1818 states that: Tuns Inn, Bungay, Henry BLUNDERFIELD thanks (the public for support)...during his 13 years of residence, & is now retiring from business. Mr John HOLLANDALE has now taken the Concern. A report in the Ipswich Journal on 04 Jun 1836 states that: The Tuns, Bungay, for sale, in the occupation of Mr Mark MAYLAM, situate in the parish of Broome, near Wainford Mills. A report in the Ipswich Journal on 02 Nov 1845 states that: James GARWOOD has entered the Tunns Inn, Bungay'& solicits the patronage of those parties who have so long honoured MRS Buckenham, with their support; also, Charles CAPON has succeeded to the King's Head in Bungay (having moved from the Swan Inn, Loddon). In 1822, the pub was used as a prison to lock up local Luddites after they smashed up farm machinery. Some years earlier, after local lad Henry Scarl was murdered by robbers, his employer displayed his body in the pub, & charged people a penny a time to see it, in order to pay for the funeral. The pub is often claimed to be the most haunted building in Bungay, supposedly with over 20 ghosts, including a maid who was caught stealing beer & was chained to the wall until she starved to death. In 1969 the pub hired a professional exorcist, Canon Pearce Higgins, who claimed to have got rid of all the ghosts. But allegedly he failed. However nobody asked by comedian Mark Steel, who made a radio programme in Bungay in 2011, had ever seen a ghost in the Three Tuns. But as Canon Higgins was blind, neither did he.
