We go here as you generally know what you are getting. We have been many times over the last few years and never any problems. The menu has reduced somewhat during that time and unfortunately some of our favourites are no longer on there. There is a definite lean towards fish and seafood. The food was better when we first...

Great choice of food and smaller portions if required. Excellent value for money and right on the canal for walkers. Service is not overly friendly though.

We organised a family meal for Boxing Day, 15 of us. We pre-booked our meals in advance, which was a great idea. The food was served promptly and everyone enjoyed it, well presented and very tasty. Very nice atmosphere and from the initial enquiry through to paying the bill, could not fault the service we received. Would highly recommend -... More

I eat at the Queens Head when ever I return home to Shropshire and every time I get good quality food served by friendly staff in a warm, welcoming atmosphere!! Definitely worth a try if you are in the Oswestry area!

had a lovely meal. Very welcoming. Food was delicious I had a rump steak and was cooked perfect. My husband had the SHROPSHIRE blue chicken which was very tasty. Plenty of vegetables with a choice of either vegetables or salad, chips, jacket potato or potatoes. Even though it was very busy and the waitresses and bar staff were busy they... More

We have used the Queens for several years but have not been for quite a long time. Obviously a change of management/ owenership and we think that it now gives a 'look at the bottom line' impression. There was nothing wrong, but also nothing right. The food was OK but quickly forgotten. Not a lot in and but there was... More

Called here on the way home from a trip away. They quickly accommodated us with a table. Sunday lunch was amazing & puds just as good. Proper home cooked food. Will definately call there again.

We visit the Queens Head relatively often. It is a busy but relaxing pub and the food is always good. Sunday dinner is like a proper, good old gravy dinner (if you don't have enough gravy just ask and they will bring you more). Its good, traditional 'comfort' food - always very tasty. We also visit occasionally during the week... More

Just got home with a paella doggi bag as the portion is so huge I could only manage half of it as on a Thursday the desserts are free with a main course! Amazing!

The service is excellent and an extremely busy pub in great location near the canal so we can moor our boat. We went for a roast dinner on our anniversary and the roast itself was absolutely delicious but felt let down by the very small portion of vegetables we had to share and only two roast potatoes each. We desert... More
