About The Three Tuns

Nestled in the picturesque countryside, close to the RSPB nature reserve which offers free parking, and at the same time handy for the city of Cambridge, The Three Tuns has much to offer. It provides a delightful setting for family celebrations, business lunches and much more.


On entering the building you are greeted with an open fire in winter, and the traditional stone flooring in the bar area leads through to both the dining room and to the more informal area with comfortable pews and dining tables.

Over the years a lot has been written about the history of The Three Tuns; the following excerpt came from an ex-Cambridge Professor who specialised in local history.

"The tie beams in what had been the jettied wing (its lower part now encased in brick) display superb 15th century moulding of great quality; the decoration on the central boss suggests a corn connection.

The rest of the building was modernised in the late 16th, early 17th century when the fireplace and chimney were installed, at the same time, an upper storey was added. The present bar is situated outside the original building.

Many people ask if the pub is haunted, whilst we've not experienced anything untoward, locals talk of the old lady who lives in the ladies toilet who has been known to prod unsuspecting hand-washers in the back! The middle bar floor has been blamed for many a fallen glass or was it a mischievous local upset at his seat being taken…..

We at the Three Tuns work hard to ensure that our pub offers something for everyone. The Three Tuns specialises in traditional home cooked fare offering reasonably priced dishes; through a varied menu with daily specials.


Week day lunchtime diners can “maximise” their lunch hour by phoning ahead. Just one phone-call can mean that your food is freshly prepared for your arrival time allowing you to make the most of your break.
