I went to the Walls in Oswestry for a meal for the first time after previously having a poor experience with friends. But, everyone deserves a second chance, but definitely not a third! I arrived at the building at 6pm expecting the place would be ready for serving food as advertised. Unfortunately I had to wait 20mins for my order to be taken despite me being the only person there. The building is also very big and should definitely have heating on even in May as it was very cold.

I then waited 20 mins for the starter to arrive which was poached egg and black pudding which was poor and very oily and tasted a little fishy.

I then had the venison for the main course but was greatly disappointed as although the venison was cooked perfectly however the sauce was overdosed in salt. I made the young waitress aware of the problem and she replaced the meal which was prepared fresh but again the sauce was very salty.

I hope they can get this sorted soon as it has so much more potential for Oswestry!

But overall disappointed!

This old school has been turned into a superb restaurant serving exceptional food with friendly and professional service. The choice of menu provides something for all tastes with a high standard. The large hall restaurant isn't cosy but this place is unique and needs to be visited for an exceptional school dinner.

We had a lovely meal here after a day walking Offa's Dyke . The atmosphere was great even down to the couple getting engaged by the chef putting her engagement ring in her dessert.
The service was good and food delicious.

Many good meals in the past but lately two particularly poor ones. Not to keen on present menu. Starters and dessert better that main. Bit dissapointing

We change our fixed price every 5/6 weeks and i'm sorry that you don't particularly like this one.
It won't be long till the next one. Standards of food production have not slipped they just don't appeal to you as much which I am sorry about.
Please don't give up on us.
Thanks,
Geoff
