Working nearby we met here with friends for a well deserved break. Loads of character, nice range of beers, food and great service. Well worth a detour.

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.
