Good breakfast

When you don't feel like making the breakfast the Oswestrian is the place to go before you do the shopping. Great staff and the food is fresh. The music playing in the background was just up our street, being of a certain age! Had to drag the husband away. He said he would stay and listen and I... read more

Was drawn in by the sandwich board for the advertised roast lunch. The staff were awesome, friendly and attentive no worries with the service at all, unfortunately the food was a different story. Meat was fine, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding too but the rest ruined the good. The broccoli and cauliflower looked and tasted like a mafia hit victim.... More

If you are looking for good food in a central location I strongly suggest you try the Oswestrian in the market town of Oswestry. The atmosphere is pleasant the food is good and reasonable.

Four of us visited while on a shopping day out, two had the Roast dinners which were OK but swimming in very thin gravy, the other two lunches were Cheese and Onion pies these were served with chips that were mushy and had a strange look, they were also swimming in the same thin gravy. I must admit I would... More

We went here as we fancied a roast lunch on a Friday. You receive a warm friendly welcome and a menu that is simple and straight to the point. The food was served quickly and very tasty homecooked food. Ideal for breakfast, roast lunch or quick bite to eat.
