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. 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. 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
