Delicious cooking and interesting menu. Charming staff and good choice of local beers. The tahini of Lamb and apricots was excellent, well spiced with a most generous portion of lamb and apricots. Herby, nutty couscous, perfect!

After a long walk, this pub was a great relief. Lovely atmosphere, we didn't eat here but the food being served looked lovely. Good selection of drinks. Quirky loo signs! Ha ha

Had a lovely evening meal in this quaint little pub. It has a surprisingly interesting menu, and the food was absolutely delicious - I had the pork belly which was devine! The dessert menu was varied and our sticky toffee pudding a naughty but nice treat. The staff were very cheery and friendly. It was pretty empty when we were... More

Whilst we were staying in Hay we thought we would try out the Three Tuns. We called, we booked and we walked out. We waited by the bar to be welcomed, but the staff were too busy to even notice us, when a passing member of staff asked if she could help, we advised that we had booked and were... More

The Three Tuns dates back to the early 16th Century - although some records make even earlier reference to this, the oldest pub in Hay on Wye.Famous for its unique charm and character, Three Tuns became a popular haunt with local characters and well known personalities such as Jools Holland, Marianne Faithful, Neil Kinnock, Huw Edwards and some as infamous as the Great Train Robbers!Unfortunately the Three Tuns suffered a devastating fire in 2005, but a sympathetic restoration has brought life to the old building once again.Enjoy the huge inglenook fires, 16th century beams and the sympathetic new additions such as the garden room and large beer garden
