AJ outside the Three Tuns, December 2001

There are 2 pubs that really stand above the others in Alcester; the Three Tuns and the Holly Bush situated a couple of hundred yards down the road on the main High Street. Having visited the Holly Bush earlier in the evening it's only a short stroll down and across the High Street to this fine establishment. This place clearly appeals to the discerning drinker and a quick sample of Goff's Jouster (abv4%) will reveal why. This fine beer satisfies even before it touches your lips with its wonderful hoppy aroma. Go there and try it. You'll also find a good selection of other local brews and some from further afield.

We found the pub very cosy, particularly on a cold winter's night. The pub's squeezed into a lovely old beamed building. Inside the flagstone floors and there are signs of its original construction with a glass frame revealing wattle and daub underneath. We chatted with allsorts of people and glanced at some of the pictures on the walls of old Alcester. This pub in my mind is a truly traditional pub. One look at the barman carefully drying a glass, topping up your pint without you having to prompt him. It's a place to drink beer and people like it. There's no food here so you don't what I call the 'nine-thirty' brigade here - the once a month trip to the pub for a lasagne, scampi for table 157 served in an incredible 8 minutes washed down with 2 diet cola-type drinks. There's also no music or machines yet the pub was still crammed to the brim with folk chatting and enjoying the fine dominantly locally made top quality real ales. Certainly a pub to cherish and one that in my mind is deservedly doing very well at the time of my review, and hopefully will continue to do long into the future…
