Very nice Sunday lunch. Big portions of quality food, reasonably priced. The gravy was exceptional! You get a big jug of it and nobody saw me drinking out of it! It was too nice to leave. Friendly staff.

Popped in for an afternoon drink and enquired about places to eat. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, giving us lots of helpful information about the town as we did not know the area.

Visited Oswestry for a day out and feeling peckish went to the Red Lion for lunch. Small plate meal was absolutely delicious and the home made chips were to good I asked if I could buy an extra bowl of chips when I'd finished the meal!! Service and food really good. Will certainly visit again next time were in Oswestry.

Called in here by chance. Bar staff was extremely polite and helpful. I had chicken and smoked ham pie with homemade chips and mushy peas, it was delicious and piping hot. My husband had an old favourite scampi and chips it too was served piping hot and very tasty. We will definitely return.

The garden is exceptionally beautiful with hanging baskets and tubs that are magnificent. Clearly someone is a very hard-working and knowledgable gardener. The same can be said of the food. Exceptional both in taste, quality and quantity. The 4 of us all ate vegetarian options but each one different. We are not vegetarians but the choices were very attractive and... More

Popped in here today for the first time for some lunch with my wife. Walked past it on many occasions. I had the Burger with chips and peas and my wife had soup and we were both more than happy with the portion size, price and service so much so we have recommended it to friends. We will be returning.

We went out on Saturday evening to try out Frank's new evening menu. We both had a starter and chose a steak to follow. Bernie had a rib eye and I had a sirloin. Both cooked as we wanted. They were both accompanied with fresh vegetables, salad and hand cut chips. We chose a pepper sauce but there were others... More

Angela and Frank have accommodated a group of us on the busiest day of the year before Christmas for food and allowed us to have our quiz on two occasions. They have allowed us to take over one corner of their establishment and fed all of us with a three course meal which has always been hot, tasty and very... More
