The Landlords


Matt and Emma Ferguson welcome you to the Three Tuns at St Keverne.

They have extensive experience in the pub and restaurant trade, with Matt coming from the Halzephron Inn at Gunwalloe, the Nansloe Manor Hotel in Helston and the Pandora Inn at Restronguet, before most recently managing the Norway Inn at Perranarworthal. 

When not welcoming customers to the Three Tuns, Emma can be found writing the Helston Packet newspaper - something she has done for the last 14 years. 

Both Matt and Emma grew up in the area, with Emma living in the parish as a child, just a few miles down the road at Traboe, while Matt lived at nearby Gunwalloe. He is the grandson of former St Keverne mobile butcher Jimmy Wood. 

The Chefs


Executive chef Daniel Ferguson is a self-taught chef with many years' experience in commercial kitchens, including working with a Michelin trained chef.

Before taking the helm at the Three Tuns he was part of the team at the Norway Inn at Perranarworthal, he has since become executive chef over two pubs.


Daniel draws inspiration from taking classic British pub food and updating it, with an emphasis on hearty meat dishes and fresh fish specials.

Provenance plays an important role when it comes to sourcing his ingredients, which are all grown, reared and caught locally where possible. 

Head Chef is Matt Hichens who gained a lot of his experience in the well regarded Halzephron Inn and Nansloe Manor Hotel. Since then Matt has been with the company for just over a year.
