You’ll feel instantly at home as you walk in here - and the food, drink and village setting will draw you back time and again

Drive through woodland from Marlborough to arrive at a pretty village and this late 18th-century pub in the capable hands of a happy team. James has gained experience in London, Seattle and Italy and places a homemade emphasis on his modern and classic pub dishes. Begin with a salad of beetroot, blood orange, hazelnut and goats cheese, before herb roast guinea fowl with leeks, smoked bacon and parmesan mash. The cheeses are local, so too the mushrooms, truffles and meat. The bar has a well-loved traditional feel with a glorious big brick fireplace, panelling, beams and rustic signage. A lovely place to raise a pint of Butcombe or Otter, while little ones explore the basket of toys and games. On Sundays, grab a Bloody Mary and await a tremendous roast. All this and a small garden with boules pitch. Savernake Forest is nearby.

  • The Three Tuns won Sawday's Authentic Pub Award 2018 and sits on the edge of the stunning ancient woodlands of the Savernake Forest - excellent for walks, bike rides and shooting.
  • We are a 10 minute drive or bus ride from the busy market town of Marlborough with its famously wide High Street, shops and eponymous school. The antique stores of Hungerford are also a short drive or train ride away.
  • Come for the crop circles, Crofton Beam Engines, Wilton Windmill, the Merchant's House Museum, the Rabley Drawing Centre. And furtherafield, Stonehenge
  • The Kennet & Avon Canal runs through the village and is a defining part of life in Bedwyn. It is a beautiful part of village life throughout the seasons and always makes for a fun stroll. Enquire at the bar for print ups of local walks.
  • The existing pub was originally three buildings, at the heart of which still exists the old village bakery bread oven! Our neighbours include many small, independent artisan businesses and collectives
  • Tom Parker Bowles gave us a glowing review as one of the best pubs he ate at all year! Wiltshire Life Magazine recommend us as one of the best roasts in the county. Why not come and try one for yourself?
