Three Tuns


Picture source: Stephen Harris


The Three Tuns was situated at 185 Bow Road. This pub was present on what was then Bow High Street in 1823, at which time it was owned by the Hodgson’s Brewery of Bow.  By the late twentieth century it was a Whitbread Brewery pub, popular enough to be enlarged into the neighbouring premises in 1985, and in its latter years it affected the name Ye Olde Three Tuns.  But in 1999 it closed and was converted into residential use.
