Salop Street, BISHOP'S CASTLE, SY9 5BW
The memorable time-warp town of Bishop's Castle tumbles down steep hills at the fringe of Shropshire's Clun Forest. A sheep market centre for centuries; traders from the time of King Charles I onwards have enjoyed the hospitality of The Three Tuns, where England's oldest brewery, licensed in 1642, continues to produce beers in its eye-catching tower brewery; Rantipole and Cleric's Cure just two of a suite of accomplished offerings. The engaging warren of rooms is generally music and games machine free, although regular live jazz, rock, classical music and morris dancing events prove very popular. The pub hosts a beer festival as part of the town's renowned summer festival each July. Timber frames, beams and redoubtable fireplaces add tremendous character, whilst a glass-sided dining room overlooks the sun trap, flower-bedecked brewery yard. Menus are as diverse as the beers; witness roast loin of hake with saffron and shellfish bisque; or slow-cooked 'three pork and bean' casserole; with banana parfait and peanut brittle to finish.
