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.

    I had the scampi and chips which was wonderful, so much scampi, great value. My daughter has a bacon Brie and mushroom sandwich, it looked substantial and she said it was wonderful. We sat outside in the sunshine after visiting Turvey House, a perfect day.

    Good food and a good selection of drinks, very friendly service. Nice pub, good location. A pleasant evening out. I also drop by about once a month while out walking, lunches are just as good as dinner and a good selection of beers.

    Roast beef was delicious and the crème brûlée with poached rhubarb was one of the best desserts I have had! Thanks cliff and team for always making us so welcome, your staff are so kind and friendly they are a credit to you. Just simply the best village pub, it’s like coming home! Thanks Cliff and Hayley, Turvey is so lucky to have such a great pub, can’t wait to come back soon!

    When we arrived I was told that they did not have a booking. I had booked it and had received both a text message and email as proof. The sharing course was slow to arrive despite the fact there was no cooking involved. Overall the food was good and we were happy with the experience.

    Overall a very enjoyable Sunday lunch with good food and service. I bit disappointed to be sat at the bar end of the pub, with a group of drinkers watching live rugby on the TV - which wasn't the ambience I expected

    My mum uses a wheelchair so the fact helpful staff made her access very easy and with little fuss was great. The service was excellent we felt cared for and everything ordered was correct and delivered hot and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious, freshly made and definitely not microwaved to order. Our whole experience was excellent, really well done to all the staff and the chef in particular. We will definitely be back.

    A great pub in a pretty village setting. The dining areas are roomy with large comfortable tables. The food was of a very high standard and can only be attributed to the person in charge of the menu selection and the way the food is cooked and presented. Will definitely go back and highly recommend.

    Perfect setting , The Three Cranes was decorated so elegantly for Christmas . Every table was pristine and welcoming for guests . Service was brilliant , food choices suited everyone . Must say our food was delicious , piping hot . Our table ordered Hake and I had traditional Turkey , enormous portions and cooked to perfection . We didn’t have room for dessert but the offerings looked delicious as they went by us to other tables .
