Description: 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.

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 fires and that old medieval feel to them. Then it opens up into a huge modern area which is beautiful with great wooden floor, tables and huge windows overlooking the brewery at the back. The last room has the main bar with a lovely seating area, mostly of which was reserved. We managed to sit in a lovely window seat next to the fire.
Nice range of cask ales on, fiancé managed to find one he liked after chatting to a couple of locals and trying some.
Not much change form a tenner for two drinks though, ouch!
Over the weekend, we actually visited here on 3 occasions as it was so nice. We played board games too as there are loads of them dotted about in the small rooms.
Apparently, they book up well in advance for food, so if you want to eat it may be worth booking before you go.
Lovely bar and definitely worth a visit.

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

Ate hear while staying at the Castle Hotel up the road. The Three Tuns has an incredible atmosphere and is probably the best pub in the village... a good mix of locals and visitors, an extensive and reasonably priced menu, and a fantastic selection of ales from the "the UK's oldest licensed brewery". I would particularly recommend the fish and chips and the Cleric's Cure IPA. Both fantastic.

Booked a table for 8 people on Wednesday night, service was lovely, very pleasant lady, food was very good, everything that came out was very tasty and to add to the pleasant atmosphere it was also nice having the log fire on.

Superb meal, excellent quality food and very reasonably priced. Good to see a list on their menu of local food suppliers.
Ordered a chicken and bacon club sandwich. Cheese and marmalade chutney sandwich. Sticky toffee pudding, fruit crumble. Beer was excellent from Three Tuns Brewery. Staff were chatty, pleasant. Great pub atmosphere too. Highly recommended.
