Save The Three Cups Hotel

The Three Cups Hotel

Campaigning for preservation of the hotel where J.R.R. Tolkien stayed and gained inspiration for his mythology. Jane Austen, G.K. Chesterton, Tennyson and H.W. Longfellow were also guests. The hotel featured in the film, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”. Please send articles to me, Andrew Townsend, at or add a comment. Thanks to David Moss for all his work. Comments are closed at WDDC for the plans to redevelop the site but you can still write to the papers.

Thanks for the info. According to my sources, this happened last year as well but we didn't find out who did it. Anyone reading this who can shed any light, please post a comment to enlighten us or email

As of June, Palmers Brewery said it is making good progress on the development of the Three Cups. It would be lovely to see this old structure reclaim its glory and open its door once again as a hotel.

Can't wait for The Three Cups to reopen as a hotel. I hope that they'll be able to finish the reconstruction before the year ends.
