Met up with some friends for our annual Christmas meal. Had a really lovely time in this very pleasant hotel. We all had the Christmas dinner, it was excellent. The service was also excellent but not overwhelming. Will be going back next year.

Have eaten here a few times and have always had a nice meal. The menu is good with a wide selection of food on offer. I would recommend both the salmon and the lasagna both are very nice. The hotel is very clean and seating is well laid out and comfortable. Toilets are very nice. Staff and pleasant and friendly... More

Stopped here for a couple of coffees and a cake with my four month old while the ladies did their shopping. I sat in the lounge on the right. The coffee was great and the seating comfortable and ample. The log fire was a lovely addition in a central location. Will be back for dinner. :)

On our way to Cardiff, called in for a coffee & snack, although breakfast was finished the kindly lady staff member offered us bacon sandwiches. They were lovely. The barman made great coffee, the place was warm & welcoming, ( a mini hurricane was going on outside too) Thank you Royal Oak for your hospitality, we will return.

Very much enjoyed a good coffee and very good slice of cake here. It's traditional with a modern twist. Staff are pleasant and efficient. As soon as a table is vacated it's tidied and clean. It's busy but not a crush or hassled. Would recommend if you find yourself in Welshpool.

Done a great job of refurbishing and redecorating this restaurant since our last visit. Service very good, little slow but it was very busy. Food excellent and good value. Would definitely visit again. Five of us in ages ranging from 70s to 8 and all enjoyed our meal. Beer also good which when visiting with our men is important!

The outside looked fine and the inside was better! It was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday evening, it was clean and warm. The staff were great. The menu was quite diverse and just about everything was home made and fresh cooked.If I'm in the area again I will visit.

Excellent Attended a function for around 80 people in the room at back of hotel. Food and service excellent: meals for the tables of 8 delivered almost in unison. Bathroom facilities very good. Had a very nice evening and would happily recommend it.

On a wet Monday we were searching for a decent lunch - we didn't want café food (and tripadvisor kept recommending cafes) then we spotted this pub / restaurant - looked at the menu & thought why not? What a delight! Walking in we could see a café / coffee shop to the left that looked warm & inviting and... More

Stopped here on the way through Welshpool. It's a lovely building and the bar-staff (the first women I dealt with) was very amiable. The second, young guy, I dealt with made me feel that he was too busy to be bothered with me. The cake I had was slightly stale as though it had sat out for a tad too... More
