After spending the morning walking down the beautiful canal towpath near Crofton Pumping Station we now need to refuel. The Three Tuns in Great Bedwyn is nearby and we steer ourselves in that direction.
There are several quality beers that I can choose from to fend off my thirst and I decide it would be impolite not to try the Three Tuns Ale. It is a good choice.
After considering what the galley has on offer, I choose the Seared Fillet of Bream berthed with Black Bean, Corn, Roasted Red Pepper & Isle of Wight Tomato Salsa, Coriander, Fried Tortillas and Guacamole. When it arrives, the dish is full of vibrant colour and it tastes even better than it looks.
Rock navigates towards the Grilled Courgette, Pea & Isle of Wight Tomato Salad, Sourdough Croutons, House Salad Cream and Feta Cheese. Again the dish is colourful, but the colours and flavours are more subtle than those of the salsa. Rock loves it.
We have no real capacity for dessert but order coffee with a deck of sweet Salami made from chocolate, biscuit, toffee, nuts etc. Good fun.
The Three Tuns is clearly a place that you can bank on for good food and drink. I wouldn’t even mind being locked in here for a while.
