Food and drink 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.
Oswestry Town has always been known for the number of pubs, a few less now but still a great mix of traditional and right up to date, why not call in at Shrewsbury and West Shropshire CAMRA Pub of the Year? Talking award winners, you don’t want to miss our local brewery and gin distillery.
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.
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.
