About this Pub
This pub opened on: 05 Dec 2008
Type: J D Wetherspoon

Situated in the southeast corner of Market Place, this imposing grade II listed building dates mainly from the 18th century. It is thought to have been built for the Bell family, in 1698, and adapted for use as a coaching inn around 1740. At that time, it was Thirsk's only coaching inn. The London, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Leeds and Darlington coaches all stopped at The Three Tuns. The original mangers, stalls and hay lofts for the horses are still in the yard behind the main building. In 1802, the poet William Wordsworth and his sister, Dorothy, stayed overnight at The Three Tuns. They were on a long walk across the Yorkshire moors to meet William's fiancée, Mary Hutchinson, whose family lived near Scarborough.

Pub History

Weekly markets are held on a Monday and Saturday on Market Square, in front of The Three Tuns – traders begin setting up their stalls very early in the morning. Please also note that, on a Friday and Saturday night, the bar is open until 1am; so, if you feel that your sleep may be disrupted, we recommend requesting a room at the back of the hotel.

The Three Tuns is a grade II listed building – owing to the preservation of internal features, we have a lift to the first floor only. Room 7 is fully accessible by this lift and includes a wet room shower. All other rooms may be accessed only by navigating multiple staircases.
