The food was very nice and plenty of it, but the service was very poor. We took guests and the starters came one at a time with a good five minutes between each one - it was frankly quite embarrassing. I don't think I will be bothering them again!!

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.
