The place is very welcoming and all staff very pleasant. Plenty of space to move around and enjoy the Inns surroundings.

I would have to go back to the 1960's for service as bad as this. As I entered the pub the barman actually walked away. Finally he came back and with not a word of welcome said 'Yes what do you want' After I ordered a beer I asked for the menu. He said 'We have stopped serving. This was... More

Called very late for lunch on spec and they served us no problem. Totally dog friendly no issues at all. We only had sandwiches but can honestly say best sandwiches ever, thick fresh bread and hand carved ham to die for all. Will definitely visit again and probably try a full meal

Wonderful pub with a superb atmosphere excellent range of their own beers and a standard but wholesome menu. Do not visit Bishops Castle without making sure you have a session at the Three Tund.

Last time I was in the Three Tuns' it was 1978 and they were hanging on by the skin of their teeth as one of the last 'home brew' pubs in the country. A visit then was a pilgrimage of sorts and it was again today! Back then, if memory serves, it was a couple running the brewery and the... More

Outlet for the beers from its own brewery, they were of very satisfying standard. Interesting old pub interior.

Called in twice on a Sunday, once in the afternoon and again in the evening. Both beers I tried had a background taste which I didn't like, and there are not many beers I don't like. No food served on a Sunday evening . Lacking atmosphere for an old pub!

Cozy pub with good selection of food and great beer. I had a lamb roast. Lots and lots of lamb, very crispy roast potatoes, Yorkshire pud and a nice selection of veg. Followed by a cherry and apple crumble which was very sweet but the ice cream balanced it out. Husband had burger which he really enjoyed and looked very... More

Excellent food and great beer. Our dog was made welcome and the menu is varied. Whilst it is something of a gastro pub, it retains the feel of a friendly local. Well worth a visit

I was one of a group of 9 lads who had rented a house in the town for a week. We visited this pub/restaurant on a number of occasions and were never disappointed. Food was of a good standard and served promptly with a smile! I strongly recommend the burger. I love good quality burgers and this is up there.... More
