Shown as a pub on OS maps at least as late as 1967. By the 1978 sheet it's no longer there so probably closed some time between those dates. The nearby station closed in March 1967; this probably led to the demise of the pub.

The existing building must date from some time after 1896:

Haverhill Echo[1], August 1st 1896

On Wednesday morning last week the Three Turns Inn at Glemsford was burnt to the ground, also a fibre shed adjoining the property. The property belonged to Mrs Smith, a widow, she is also the landlady of the house. It stands at the junction of three roads hence its name, close to the railway station. It has recently been re-roofed completely with slates. The cause is undiscovered.
