Poor choice of ale; Banks' Bitter (which even Tesco's cannot sell for a pound, other stores are available) Pedigree and, saving the day, Hobgoblin.
The walls are adorned with mouth-watering past pump clips. I don't think today's clips will make it up there.

this is our usual starting point on our trips to york always has a good selection of beers available, with it`s central position it`s spot on to any pub crawl starting point. could of done with some winter warmers yesterday because i think the boiler must have broke down,nice pint of snecklifter though, be back soon,cheers.

I must say the exterior of this place flatters to deceive a little, as it is charming and well-preserved, though once inside, while not all the fine old features fade away, it certainly doesn't quite have the appeal that one might guess at on the outside looking in.

The Three Tuns was a bit of a punt on a night out last Saturday when we ran out of GBG-listed boozers in the immediate vicinity. That's not to say it wouldn't be worthwhile as in York many pubs that would pass muster in less-saturated districts are kept out of the Guide due to restrictions on numbers. Beer-wise, the options were quite unimaginative, with Banks' probably being the most exciting. Saying that though it was served with a smile and found to be kept well enough. Not everywhere in York wants to be a cask ale mecca.

This place had an immediate impact on arrival; there was a sort of 1980s party vibe to it. Some sort of hen nite (sic) or something similarly tawdry was in session, but it made for a lively atmos. Music was playing and by-and-large there was a friendly feel. Unfortunately one of our number almost engaged in a tussle with one of the less-friendly locals, but mercifully this was avoided. Because of the slight tension this created we felt it prudent to move on, but in fairness to the pub this wasn't their fault.

Definitely one of York's earthier and less-pretentious pub offerings, this perhaps is a reasonable counterpoint to the rather more slick and rarefied experiences of say the Last Drop, Brigantes or Pivni.

Popped in during lunchtime for a soft drink & to get out of the cold. Traditional, long, dark, narrow building with low roof beams & bench seating all the way down one side. At the bar there was a rather dull choice of beers from Marston's, Breakspear & Banks. Glad I wasn't drinking.

Fantastic old pub with beams and low ceilings - very good pints of Banks Mild too.

Plenty of character, well worth a visit if in York.
