Three Tuns Cornwall, over the years you could get accommodation, beer and food but it has changed hands so often since being one of Punch Taverns properties you can not be sure of either these days, currently it is open. There has been a building on this site from at least the mid 1400's we are unsure as to what capacity it was used.
The name is purported to come from that period when the vicar at that time was found with three tuns (large casks) of wine or brandy (gleaned from a French wreck or smuggled) in this building. Whether this true we shall endeavour to find out. We do have images of the Three Tuns and other parts of this area that look great on mugs.
The Three Tuns is a very different place than it was in Mr Wills day, his name is over the door in this turn of the century photograph.
You can buy these images below on a 11oz Ceramic Mug from mugglemugs.co.uk or directly from here.
