The Three Tuns is home to the brewery by the same name. You enter through a courtyard/car park and up some steps into a modern part of the building which adjoins the brewery. I continued through to the front bar, which is much more traditional. I think there were other rooms which I missed. Bar staff were busy kitting out the rooms with Halloween items.

I was hoping to try the brewery's stout. But it had not been brewed for a while. 3 handpulls in the front bar had XXX, Cleric's Cure & Solstice. Their Best Bitter was also listed (but then again, so was the Stout). I was offered this instead of the stout, as the darkest beer they had. So, I assume it was being poured from a handpull in another bar.

A nice pub with plenty of character and a brewery with plenty of history. I would have preferred a dark beer or a cider to have been on though.

Got to be a must visit place for any beer lover. Brewery to the side and obvious home of their products, although curiously, most of the marketing was buy 6 pints of fosters and get one free.

Why would you do that?

Excellent food.

I've been here three times before, the first time around forty years ago and the last time over thirty years ago. I hardly recognise the place today as it's no longer a quirky old pub with a brewery attached but a major attraction for beer tourists and diners.
I went in the small front area rather than the large dining area behind. This is old and largely unspoilt with beams and a fireplace. I only noticed four beers, XXX, Rantipole, Stout and Cleric's Cure. I went for the Stout (£3.25) and Cleric's Cure both of which were good.
I have to say I preferred the Six Bells to here but it is very marginal as I preferred the Three Tuns beer. It's not as good today as I remember it from decades ago.
