Such a shame, we had many fantastic Sunday lunches here before the change of management. While it remains a nice pub the Sunday lunch was terrible.

Went in to roaring fire,and nicely decorated pub. Had a good meal, which was reasonably priced and the service was good. Nice wines and beers too. Just needed more people in there to generate an atmosphere.

In a matter of months a vibrant pub selling great food has been turned into a 'spot the customer' pub. The reasons are blatantly obvious...in the winter it is traditional to heat a pub, long gone are the roaring open fires. No background music. No...More

Description
Enjoy informal dining in the exquisite surroundings of our dining room thoughtfully renovated with Danish carvings from the 16th century which harks back to the stories that boats once came up the brook in front of the pub heading to Swavesey which was an inland port. The boats & tradesmen were Danish and many settled in the area. Nestled in the picturesque Cambridgeshire countryside, yet close to Cambridge, The Three Tuns provides a delightful setting for family celebrations, business lunches and much more. Traditional stone flooring in the bar area with its open fire welcomes you and leads through to a less formal area with comfortable pews and additional dining tables.
