On the last evening of my holiday we had supper at the Three Tuns Inn. The food was fantastic. I had the burger followed by sticky toffee pudding for dessert. I would highly recommend eating here while staying in Bishop's Castle.

Staying over on a Saturday night, we walked up to the top of the village and intended to work our way down through each of the pubs. This was our first stop. Made up of four rooms, the first two and small, dark with roaring...More

The beers brewed onsite are excellent. The menu selection was very good and service was terrific. The main bar was the better place to eat. The room out the back lacked atmosphere

The famous and historic Three Tuns Inn, (known locally as 'The Tuns') set at the top of Bishops Castle has been open since 1642! A deceptively large interior offers lounge, conservatory, snug, front bar and function room. Standing on the site of the oldest licensed brewery in the U.K, The Tuns offers modern eclectic cuisine using simple locally sourced ingredients in a happy, friendly, bustling environment and of course serves a wonderful array of real ales from the on site brewery. Pub and brewery are now separate businesses, but work very closely together to help create a truly worthwhile and memorable visit to this hidden gem of a market town, hidden away in the Shropshire hills, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty.
