Although this is a relatively new building, the site has boasted a pub since the 16th century. The name 'The Three Lords' comes from three Scottish noblemen (Lord Lovat, The Earl of Kilmarnock and Lord Balmerino) who all had their last nights rest, their last meal and their last drink at the original inn. The three lords had been involved in the 1745 Rebellion when Prince Charles tried to overthrow George II. For there involvement they were beheaded as traitors. In the sixties the bar staff would dress in tartan, but not today.
street level bar is a comfortable size, making for a friendly atmosphere,
there are a few seats dotted around, but this bar is intended for standing
and drinking, service is always fast and pleasant especially so, when serviced by Gayle. For
those who prefer to
lounge, there is the downstairs bar, offering an excellent venue for a
lunchtime meal. My preferred solution to lunch, is a couple
pints of cask ale accompanied by fresh handmade sandwich. The Three Lords offers
the most delightful sandwiches and although the beer is not
accredited with the cask-marque it is of sufficient quality to have you
coming back for more.
