The Three Cranes is a beautiful Grade II listed building with classic features in the centre of the charming village of Turvey.

Nestled in the rolling countryside between Bedford, Milton Keynes and Northampton, Turvey is a beautiful, historical village on the river Ouse at the centre of a network of country paths. It has many historical stone buildings and is centred around the ancient manor, Turvey House.

We serve food freshly prepared from high quality ingredients with a focus on local sourcing. Our meat is supplied by PE Burley, the Turvey Butcher, we always provide at least three vegan options and source fresh fish on a daily basis, based on the catches of the day and use these to create daily fish specials. We are a free house and always serve a selection of real ales.
