The Three Tuns Inn
This famous historic pub and brewery in Shropshire has been the ‘beating heart’ of Bishop’s Castle since 1642. The Three Tuns Inn is bustling and lively with an atmosphere created by the many charismatic locals who regard ‘The Tuns’ as their home-from-home; it serves a wondrous array of real ales from the adjoining brewery (XXX, 1642, Clerics Cure, Stout, Solstice, plus seasonal offerings). It is unique in these days of super cooled lagers that 70% of all beer sales are real ales.
Food is a serious part of the business but in relaxed surroundings with a modern eclectic menu using locally sourced, fresh ingredients from many award winning suppliers. Our lunch and evening menus are available daily with children also welcome.
The Three Tuns Inn has been refurbished and enlarged, but still maintains the spirit of the original pub retaining a public bar, snug bar, lounge bar, along with the addition of a classy oak-framed glass-sided dining room. A restored and characterful function room sees everything from live music (jazz to rock to classical) to line dancing, Morris dancing, film club and even zumba classes!
In warmer weather, you might catch Morris dancing, live jazz or even a brass band playing in the courtyard. Alternatively, you can just chill out and relax, reading the papers provided or play any number of pub games – all helped by the absence of piped music and fruit machines, but watch out for any of the many festival weekends held in Bishops Castle, which bring in visitors from far and wide.
