Built in first half of the 18th century, the earliest reference to The Three Tuns being a pub is the 1780s – due perhaps to the growing coaching trade. Located on a key route into central Romsey, the pub was famously held up in 1785 by a highwayman but subsequently, the pub had a very settled period throughout the 1800s with many of the licensees being farmers who sold milk as well as beer.
Numerous inquests were held at the Three Tuns during the 1850s & early 1900s due to the tragic deaths by accidental drowning in the nearby stream on Middlebridge Street – a problem exacerbated by the opening a boys school just a few doors away. Early photos show two small shops connected the pub, which have now become part of the pub, not forgetting the lovely original bow window that still survives today.
