Three Tuns



The Three Tuns was situated on Church Bank.

From The Good Pub Guide 1983:
Food is the main draw in this well-kept and friendly country pub - a neat square cut-stone building facing the unusually broad village green. The home-made bar food includes soup (50p), filled home-baked baps and rolls (60p to 80p), cheese or pate ploughman's (1.20), cottage pie (1.50), giant sausage or beefburger with egg and chips (1.70 - the eggs they use are their own free-range ones), scampi (2.55), duck (3.25), eight-ounce sirloin steak (3.95) and puddings (85p); there is also a separate restaurant. The originally roomy open-plan beamed bar has a log fire and three old oak settles on its carpet, one with amusingly horrific gothik carving, as well as Windsor armchairs and the like. Since the last edition of the Guide a new buttery bar has been opened at the back; its big windows have a fine view, shared by the back terrace and garden. The B6282, B6278 and B6279 are all fine moorland roads.
