Probably my favourite bar in Bristol, from the ones that I tried. Small interior thatís cosy, but very welcoming. Perched at the bar while I was here and had some good beer related chats with the manager, Alex. Apparently this is now no longer owned by Arbor, but they do still stock a lot of their beers, so itís still the place to visit for them. Really big turn over of cask beers, I was told that they can frequently get rotated twice in a busy night. There were eight cask and about half were Arbor. Others from Harbour, Ramsbury, Purple Moose and the less exotic (for me) XT. Very reasonably priced food, BBQ style. They also sell some nice pre-prepared sandwiches when the kitchen isnít open. Four craft keg taps and a good number of rotating bottles. Alex told me that they were selling some Beavertowns for only £2.50! All draught beers are available in third pint measures.

Taken over by Arbor Ales in 2010 after years of alternating between being shut or a total dive, the Three Tuns has gone on to win Bristol & district CAMRA pub of the year in 2012. The selection of beers has been excellent to date, with cask ales comprising three Arbor and four guests from the likes of Dark Star, Marble, Moor, Bristol Beer Factory, Raw and Art Brew. Installed 4 keg taps in September 2012, which serve Arbor, Kernel, Moor and Harbour beers. Also sells a wide range of beers in the bottle. Beer quality has been excellent and service is efficient. With the Bag OíNails and Grain Barge nearby, this makes for an easy, high quality pub crawl.

imdownthepub  (524) Banbury, England | April 8, 2014
Proper pub just off the dockside area and away from the new developments. The beers are mostly Arbor, obviously, but guests as well in both cask & keg. There is a comfortable, if slightly cramped, pub feel to it, not much room outside by the looks. The opening hours proved difficult for us unfortunately, we had to make a bit of a special effort, but it was worth it.

Scopey  (424) Croydon, England | January 9, 2014
The Three Tuns is one of Bristolís top beer destinations. The pub itself has a traditional sort of feel, with quite a laid-back atmosphere (certainly or our visit). They offer a very nice selection of craft beer on cask & keg. Obviously Arbor dominates, but there was also BBF, Alechemy and Blackjack on our visit. Stronger beers are offered in thirds if you wish - perfect for the power-rater! They have small, but interesting bottle selection and we opted for some Wiper & True. We could have easily spent a lot more time here. A great place all-round.

Good selection of cask and craft keg beers all in tip top condition, staff know their stuff and are very helpful. Lots of Arbor beers as youíd expect plus guests from Kernel and Dark Star during my visit.

Excellent sorta kinda brewery tap for one of the big four of Bristol and surrounds new breed of progressive brewer. A comprehensive range of Arbor and guests on draught served by friendly and knowledgeable bar staff. Plenty of good bottled beers available as well. Capping it off is a carry out deal available at time of writing that is exceptionally good value. Worth a visit. RERATE: Been in a few times since, and the staff have been pretty consistently offish and unenthusiastic, the carry out deal is soured by having no new stock, and there was a long period of re-branding that resulted in fewer new beers, less variety, and a lot of over-carbing. Still doing good work, but somehow losing the vibe.

where was this place when i lived in Brizzle?! well, obviously it was in the same place (though it wasnít in Gloucestershite then and it isnít in Gloucestershite now!), but really wasnít worth visiting. now though, itís a top notch place... well laid out, good atmosphere, and of course you canít go wrong with Arbor beers. not sure how to rate value, about par for the area, but chingy when youíre visiting from the Peopleís Republic of South Yorkshire! Iím possibly being mean on selection, the best Iíve seen in Brizzle but Iím judging by PRSY standards... needs a cat to complete the scene
