Fish and Chips possibly best ever. Good menu and it changes regularly. Imaginative, tasty and always high quality. Lunches good value and the sandwiches are amazing. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Went on a personal recommendation and although it was fine, I don’t think the inside delivered on expectations from the outside. The ale was excellent and the food was ok but maybe I was expecting too much.

Bishops Castle is a nice place to stay with several pubs and places to eat. I have eaten at three of the pubs, and used three of the takeaway restaurants. I would say that this is my joint favourite. It can be a little dark...More

Sorry to hear this, could you possibly let me know when it was as I cannot find anything in our bookings diary and am unsure about some of your mentioned menu choices, so wanted to check that you you have the correct Three Tuns!

Food here was really nice and good value for money too. My husband loved the beer and was dog friendly too which, to be honest, the whole village is. We shall be back again

On a camping holiday with mum husband and son. First pub we came across. Greated with a warm welcome and it had a lovely atmosphere, so we decided to eat there. Food was delicious, good choice and good selection for children. Excellent service.

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.
