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.

More Nouse from Samuel Smith of Tadcaster

I previously praised the "nouse" of Samuel Smith's Brewery in re-opening an historic public house in Chester. Click here to read.

I would also like to draw attention to Samuel Smith's policy of offering hotel accommodation in old charming buildings of great character. Click on this link to see examples.

The word "nouse" is difficult to translate from Yorkshire into English but, as a Lancastrian, I would suggest that "common sense and business acumen" is a close approximation to its meaning. As such, I would suggest that Samuel Smith's Brewery is displaying lots of nouse with the use of their buildings. May I suggest this approach of maintaining public houses and hotels as going concerns to the owners of The Three Cups.
