Three Tuns Alehouse, Apple Market (Long Millgate)

Several hundred years ago this little part of town around the Catherdral was once packed with pubs such as New Tavern, Dog & Partridge, Sun Inn, White Lion and the Three Tuns Alehouse.  This large, black & white timbered alehouse was built 1772, and it is depicted here in around 1820.  A tun is an Old English term for a barrel of beer, but the name "Three Tuns" relates to the Worshipful Company of Vintners, Worshipful Company of Brewers and the City of London Guilds [1].
