Local Pubs

The Three  Tuns our village pub in West Lutton is a Proper village pub with a friendly atmosphere and entertaining (if slightly eccentric locals) who don't bite now that owners Mike & Sharon have trained them up. Mike serves a good pint of Tetley's, & Three Tuns Ale along with a guest cider & guest beer from a local brewery on hand-pull while Sharon serves reasonably priced good pub grub. Thursday nights after Easter are Bike Nights when Biker's come from far & wide to meet up and show off their pride & joys. Sunday nights throughout the year is Quiz Night a boisterous affair where for £1 per person entry fee you can pit your wits against the locals. It's all good fun & there is a raffle & free supper.
