Bury St Edmunds Three Tuns

Bury St Edmunds Three Tuns

also traded as Three Tunns Inn

closed 1903

44 Crown St

grid reference TL 855 639

The Three Tuns was forced to close in 1903 because apparently it was considered inappropriate to have a pub so close to a church!

The building was taken over by the St Mary's Church Institute until 1949 and by the 1970s it was called Landsbury House (reading rooms) and used by the Labour Party as an Office and for meetings until 1997.

(information from www.burypastandpresent.org.uk)

The building dates from the late 17th century, with 18th century alterations.

The pub is also listed variously at 35, 42 or 43 Crown Street.

It's shown on this OS town plan of 1885.
