Eating out is part of most people’s day out or holiday and a visit to Oswestry will be tasty too. One of the things visitors enjoy here is that nearly all the cafes, restaurants and pubs are privately owned and that their menus celebrate local produce.
Walking around Oswestry town, you’re never far from cafe culture with delicious home-made cakes and your favourite coffee or pot of tea. There are great restaurants and pubs too with menus packed with local produce or hop over the border for a true taste of Wales.
Go beyond Oswestry and enjoy discovering pubs and hotels tucked away in Borderland villages, there’s a delicious mix of canal and riverside pubs, country hotels and even garden centres with especially scrumptious cafes.
Oswestry and the Welsh Borders are blessed with an array of top class food and drink producers too.
Thousands come along in July to taste the finest regional produce at one of the friendliest food festivals in the country, Oswestry Food & Drink Festival -why not join them?
Ellesmere, Llangollen, Ludlow and Shrewsbury host food festivals too and each one gives just a taste of what’s on offer locally. Explore further and you will find local farm shops selling really local food and local butchers making their own sausages, or come on market day to taste pies, pasties and pastries made on the borders.
Oswestry itself is home to some cracking local brands. Try a farmhouse cheese such as the scrumptious Marches Blue, or local gourmet sausage rolls – now sitting comfortably in Harrods – and with one of our local breweries winning Champion Beer at the 2013 National SIBA Awards, your gourmet taste buds will be beautifully quenched. There’s even a local vineyard to check out too!
