Had an appointment to organise a function 16 months ago and cancelled at last minute by Geoff with no follow up from Walls. The Sweeney did exceptionally well on back of this and so did we! Went in for first time after disappointing service and have to report lovely lunch with exception of poor quality desert. Really disappointed with customer care here and not talking about the ever attentive waiting staff - they're delightful.

Stunning building with very helpful and friendly staff and a tempting early bird dining offer if you order before 6:45... or might be 7pm. A stunning converted school dating back to early Victorian era if not before. Cavernous but intimate at the same time thanks to some glorious opulent furnishings. Often have first class live music nights and is a wonderful wedding or party venue - also has a smaller room - the Cae Glas Room - for more intimate occasions. Oswestry's stunning Cae Glas park is bang opposite to give the perfect backdrop for wedding photos. Only downer here is that there is no real outside dining space, which is a shame. That said, Geoff, Rachel and the team - the food and the puddings - more than make up for it. A definite MUST GO if you're in Oswestry. We've had all our big birthdays there - the ones that end in a zero - and memorable they were.

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.
