Places to eat & drink in Oswestry.

Oswestry is a bustling market town nestling on the Welsh border with an individual character formed over centuries. Narrow passageways link streets whose names conjure up images of the past: English Walls, Welsh Walls, The Bailey and The Horsemarket. Built around the well of St Oswald, a crucified Saxon King of Northumbria, it only joined the ranks of English towns in the 16th century. While the town's thriving weekly market dates back to 1190, and a collection of over 100 colourful stalls offer everything from fresh farm produce to fashion. There are some unbeatable bargains for the discerning shopper.

Hotels and inns bear witness to the historic importance of Oswestry as a stagecoach and railway centre. The Cambrian railway has its headquarters in the town. Old Oswestry is an Iron Age fort which contains part of Offa’s Dyke. Not far away are the rambling Llanymynech Hills. Oswestry's first school, founded in 1407, is now both Tourist Information Centre and Heritage Centre holding regular exhibitions of local arts and crafts. Modern Oswestry is an important shopping and agricultural centre, with some well-known high street stores and a good selection of cafés and bars. However it still retains the intimacy of a rural town where people come to chat and shop, and where there are specialist and independent shops of all sorts.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Oswestry or surrounding areas.
