My wife and I arrived without booking for lunch. We were told that there might be a delay because the pub was quite busy but we were served with drinks very quickly and our orders were taken shortly afterwards. The food arrived surprisingly quicky. We...had main courses and desserts and were both delighted with the quality and quantity of the food. The service throughout continued to be efficient and excellent in all respects. We left the pub feeling that we had not only had a fine lunch but had participated in a particularly satisfying dining experience.More

Excellent sunday roast pork, delicious dessert with 5 star service. In the last 4 years of visiting this pub on a regular basis, this standard has never dropped.

I booked for Sunday lunch at the Three Tuns after visiting the Henry Moore Sculpture Gardens. I knew nothing of the area and feel very lucky to have found this place. The food was clearly homemade and really delicious, we had the specials of belly...pork and a seafood pie. We were served very promptly, but not so that we felt rushed. Our waitress was delightful and very attentive. A lovely traditional pub that I’d be happy to visit again.More

It seems such a long time since we were able to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and excellent food served up in this old village pub. Neil and Anita have been serving the community in more ways than one during the various lockdowns and deserve support...in difficult times for the hospitality and service industries. Neil has a masterful touch in the kitchen and produces top quality dishes served in a traditional way without any of the so called trendy gastro pub nonsense. Welcome back!More

I treated my husband to lunch here today for his birthday. It was the first time we have visited and we were impressed with the food and the service. The food (king prawns for starter and beef fillet for main) were delicious. The beef fillet...cut like butter. Service was very friendly and warm. We would love to visit again.....More

We just treated ourselves to takeaway from The Three Tuns after becoming bored of home cooking in lockdown and so glad we did! The fish & chips were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious! We’ve recently moved to the area and will definitely be back...- thank you :) I’d encourage anyone local to support this fantastic pub during these hard times - you won’t be disappointed!More

As our visit was in Tier 2, just after lockdown, the landlord and landlady were both careful to check everything was done according to the rules, both when booking and on arrival. They were kind enough to seat my elderly parents next to the log-burner...in the dining room so they kept warm. Their welcome was friendly and also informative. My only complaint is that there were no vegetarian main dishes on the normal menu or specials board. Perhaps they would have sorted something but I had the fish and chips anyway, which were excellent. They were happy to substitute mashed or new potatoes for my father's order. All the food was good. An excellent touch was to have all desserts available with a mini option, which we all found large enough after large main course portions. We would happily eat here again.More

There are many pubs in our area that offer a good service and many do however The Three Tuns is hands down the best pub in Hertfordshire!! Amazing food prepared fresh on a daily basis by Neil and Anita runs a quality Covid safe service...either inside or out. I highly recommend a visit to see Neil & Anita as you won’t be disappointed! Oh and I would definitely try Neil’s amazing burger!! See you both again soon.More

Only recently moved to the area and popped in for a bite to eat at lunch time. This was only our second visit but I must say this is a little gem, the food is outstanding and the landlady is so welcoming, always spending time...for a quick chat. Lovely garden and surroundings and on a sunny day you couldn't wish for more. We normally have the fish and chips, each time its cooked perfect. Dog friendly too, so our little sausage dog was able to come too. Will be back again and again - would give it 6 stars if I could.More
