See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Greene King pub in a picturesque narrow street. Refitted in the popular 'ale house' style in the late 1990s. As well as the regular real ales there are two changing beers from local breweries which often include a dark beer. Local Cromwell cider is a permanent feature. Their full meal menu is served at lunchtime and in the evening pizza is available. On Sunday afternoon there are live bands when the pub is extremely popular. The pub was the 2016 Hunts CAMRA Locale Pub of the Year.

Formerly the Three Tuns, this pub name provides an unusual local reference to the maritime hero, more common around his Norfolk birthplace.
