The Three Sisters

A lively central bar with a large outdoor courtyard with a 200" TV screen, perfect for watching your favourite sports. The venue also has 21 screens indoors and three separate Sky packages, so we can cater to your needs if you want to watch another game – just enquire and we will be happy to help.

Our menu is good pub food with burgers, pizzas, pastas and salads, as well as a breakfast pizza. But best of all, we have a Man v Food Plank Challenge – dare you ask what this involves?

We also have a hotel in the venue called Stay Central, with a trendy dorm with a games table. Perfect for large groups or stag/hen parties.

The Three Sisters also features a main bar, an outdoor courtyard, a private back room available to hire for private functions, and a whole upstairs area which gets used as the Student Union through term-time.
