Three Tuns, Dronfield..

Recommended Posts

The Old Sidings - the Dronfield Arms now - was my local for a few years, and was very popular. I'm not a fan of so-called real ales, so when the DA jumped on the bandwagon, I took flight.

The last time I drove past it looked most peculiar! Have they put strange strip lights in the window?! It was too early for Christmas stuff, so I'm ruling that out.

I shared your opinion of the Tuns as well - it was the same as when it was known as the Hallowes. It couldn't decide whether it was a wine bar or a proper pub!

Anyway, it's gone, and according to (fairly) reliable sources may well be turned into a semi-secure - ?! - half-way house for God-knows-what....

At best, perhaps!

It's already raised a few eyebrows, I understand.

I suppose the building would be ideal, come to think - big enough for a good few bedrooms, a large ground floor, and it's detached!

Ayeshas will probably move there....

 

 

Indeed that is what is happening. So much speculation. Ayeshas have never made a secret of their plans. Pity the tunns ex landlord/tenant owes them £28,000 though it would go a long way to doing the place up. Rent arrears.

 

I for one cannot wait to see what the lads do with it.

Well, 13 months later the answer is.... nothing.
