Out with friends

I really enjoyed my evening out with friends. the food was OK enough but not IMO truly authentic. Portions are certainly ample and all is tasty......but is missing something; not sure what. Cuisine is American BBQ. Maybe be some interesting sides would help.

The Royal Oak is owned by the Smokehouse Grill in Oswestry and offers the same fayre but without the need to climb the stairs. The Royal Oak is also a bar serving some good cask ale. The menu offers good choice, the portions are generous and the food really good. On top of that the service is good too. We... More

This Hotel has recently been taken over by new people. It has been re-decorated and changed and is extremely pleasant to eat and drink either in the bar or the restaurant. The staff seem much happier in their new environment. Excellent would recommend.

The Royal Oak has been taken over by the Smokehouse Grill who run another successful restaurant in Oswestry. It was only the 2nd night for the new owners but everything was fine. We all enjoyed our meals and they were served in a particularly friendly manner.

We were staying in the Oswestry area and looking for somewhere to eat on a Monday night, we rang up and were told if we got there fairly soon we could eat from a limited menu, that suited us fine so we headed over. The Royal Oak is a lovely cosy proper pub, they had set up a table by... More

We booked here for a get together with friends. I reserved a table as thought the Saturday before Christmas would be busy but we're pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The first drink choice had just run out so not to worry went with second choice. We were given our table by a friendly barmaid we were told the menu was... More

The Royal Oak is the real deal - a proper pub with genuinely friendly staff & great atmosphere, serving excellent home cooked food in enormous quantities. Maureen & her team even converted me into an ale drinker for the evening such was the quality of the beer on offer! This lovely landlady did all she could and more to make... More

We visited after reading the Trip Adviser reviews & we're not disappointed. It was the delightful landlady's birthday so everyone was in a grand mood. This is a family- run pub & it shows. The service (Amy) was very good & the food was our best meal we had in our week in this part of the country. Real value... More
