A Warm Welcome

Situated near the historic market town of Barnard Castle, which is less than 10 minutes away by car, we are en route to Middleton-in Teesdale and of course the popular outstanding natural waterfalls High Force and Low Force. Surrounded by this stunning green dale, our restaurant and beer garden have a perfect view to be able to kick back, relax and take it all in.

The Three Tuns is often referred to in many local walking guides as an excellent starting point, but we think we make an excellent finishing point too! Walkers are welcome to park up in either of our car parking areas and return for some well earned refreshments! Our huge hello not only extends to our human guests but to our canine variety too, where all well behaved pooches on a lead are very welcome in our bar area and beer garden.

Meet the Team

Exciting range of local beers Raven Beer


Our well stocked bar has been a work in progress since we opened.

This falls under the remit of Justin who has been in the industry for more years than he cares to remember! His focus is on local real ales, supporting small independent North East brewers, many of whom he has supported for years.

We're all about setting the trend and are constantly reviewing and adapting our offering to cater for changing tastes. We have a real emphasis quality products, complimentary accompaniments and the science of glass wear. Our gin and whisky range is ever growing and we're always looking for new product ranges to keep our range fresh and current.



Our small and developing kitchen has also been work in progress.

With the addition of Simon Kenney our new Head Chef in November we have been busy working behind the scenes to prepare for the year ahead. Simon has taken the time to analyse our customers views through our feedback cards and has worked hard to take our food to the next level.

The Three Tuns has served fabulous fresh to order dishes for a number of years, a legacy which we inherited, now with Simon on board, we are focusing on developing and growing that legacy. Our focus is on supporting our local community and using as fresh and seasonal produce as we can.



We are all incredibly excited about our new Kitchen Garden!

Work is now well under way to restore our once lovingly tendered vegetable and fruit gardens, neglected in recent years. Sally our gardener is busy clearing the beds ready for planting and we'll be posting progress pictures through out the spring and summer!

This of course means that we will be able to introduce our home grown produce into our fresh and seasonal menu, Simon can't wait to get out there and pick his own fruit and vegetables!

We are a friendly bunch, so feel free to drop us a line or an email, and we will assist in any way that we can!
