Lovely homely feel and very good food.


Good honest lovely pub food! Definitely worth a trip!


Excellent meals prepared professionally with good wholesome produce. Our party of four were served promptly and efficiently. Very good value for money. We will certainly be back.


The traditional decor and homely feel coupled with excellent service and value for money means we shall be returning and recommending.


The starter of prawns was cooked to perfection. My partner who had the lamb for main said it was the best cooked lamb she had tasted for a long time. I had the homemade steak and ale pie and could not fault it.


The Three Tuns manages to offer a varied menu - including both British and Spanish dishes - without losing any of its traditional charm. Reasonably priced and focused on the community it serves, it provides a reminder of just how good an English pub can be.

Despite arriving surprisingly fast, roast dinners in pubs rarely have this much taste.

Local Secrets Review

Ordering the Sunday lunch proves fortuitous as it is the best we have had in ages: tender slices of roast beef, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, velvety smooth mashed potato, nice crunchy vegetables and cauliflower cheese.

Local Secrets Review

This pub is a traditional house, sixteenth century oak beamed bar with open fire and real ale in a tankard if this is what you like. But the real feature is the home cooking...


A lovely little pub with good hearty cooking.


A freehouse serving different ales each week yet possessing an Italian coffee machine too, the pub seems prepared for anything...

Basie and EllieWelcome to The Three Ways, a small country freehouse dating back to 1643. On venturing inside you discover a rustic charm unchanged by time, with original wooden beams and inglenook fireplaces. The main bar and restaurant project an ambience of warmth & comfort; the ideal place to enjoy a meal or drink with friends and family or to celebrate a special occasion. 

To all our customers. Firstly we would like to express our sincere gratitude to the awesome support we have had with the take-away. Since last night we have decided to stagger the orders we receive to 20 minutes apart in am attempt to only have one customer at a time in the pub. If you come to pick up and there is already someone in the pub, please keep at least 2 meters from each other. We will have the facility to take payments over the phone hopefully by Wednesday. We might consider to close all together, depending on how things develop. We are amending Sunday opening times to 5pm- 8pm, as per the other days. Thank you and stay safe.

It’s a new day and although you have to stay away, you can still have a take-away. The Three Ways is proud to announce that all our meals on our restaurant menu and our scrumptious PIZZA’s are now available for take-away. We could deliver for a small donation of £2 or you can collect. Please call us on 01440 820 355 or 074945 22944.
