Sutton Coldfield

A bit of history

Although no longer a rest stop for weary travellers, The Three Tuns was the oldest hostelry in Sutton Coldfield, then known as THE THREE TUNS HOTEL.

Our earliest noted visitor recorded is the Earl of Richmond (later King Henry VII), who lodged here on his way to Bosworth. The hotel also sheltered Priestley, the Unitarian minister and discoverer of oxygen gas, after his house was attacked during the Birmingham riots of 1791. Some events of interest associated with the hotel are the meeting of Cromwell with his officers after the Battle of Worcester, on 3rd September 1651 and the birth of notable painter and sculptor William F. Woodington. The Civil War is also rooted in the history of our pub, with arguably Sutton's most famous apparition, the ghost of a young Cavalier drummer boy, who supposedly has haunted the cellar of The Three Tuns since he was murdered in the stocks and dumped here by Roundhead troops. 

Fast forward to the 20th century, the Hotel became The Three Tuns pub, and ever since we have been known as one of the best traditional pubs in the Birmingham area, with great ales on draft, a delicious home cooked menu, wonderful live bands and the best atmosphere in Sutton Coldfield. 

Real Ale for Real People

Here at The Three Tuns, we pride ourselves on providing a diverse selection of drinks, from the well-known to the up and coming new tastes that are fresh on the scene. We have our 4 cask ales with a regularly changing new guest ale, 6 keg lagers on draft, as well as a fridge brimming with a fine selection ranging from American, Belgian and Indian lagers to Timmerman’s Fruit beer.
