Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Called for breakfast with the family. Big choice variety and probably the best quality food breakfast on offer. They do lovely lunches as well. The place is spotlessly clean and the staff are very polite and friendly.

usually we have a great experience at Gillhams, but today was not that day, staff were miserable, didn't even make an attempt to smile, or a hello, the lady got a couple of menus threw them on a table and said(there), the food was ok,...my panini was burnt, coleslaw was not the best we have had here, on departing still no smile or have a good day or thank you, just cash or card, will not be returning for some time, which i feel bad about, as we have in the past recommended this place to othersMore

Lovely coffee shop with a wide range of choice. I had a turkey & cranberry wrap which was very well stuffed (the same for my husbands ham wrap). The service was great would highly recommend a visit.

Always a great experience at Gilhams, we enjoy the warm atmosphere and delicious food. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our jacket potatoes were delicious although as my cheese was melted (I had no preference between melted or Grated on this occassion) the top half of...my potato was burnt and the bottom part was then difficult to cut. Nonetheless, I ate most. The size of the salad and Coleslaw portions are generous - the price is justified when you consider the add-ons. One downside was the smell of industrial glue from outside the premises. This can't be helped by the eatery but they could have closed the door and window at least.More

The food is always lovely, always high quality ingredients. The staff are helpful & friendly. As a local to this area I'm positive this is the best breakfast anywhere in the town. Nice selection of food & deserts available on the deli counter also

Absolutely fantastic, friendly service, quality produce used to fill baps and baguette, nice brew too. Really couldn't ask for more. Although quite busy service was prompt due to plenty of people serving and all as pleasant as each other. Fabulous 👌

I went to Gillhams in Oswestry with my wife, on the recommendation of others on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the food was delicious. I had a special, a sausage panini with cheese and caramelised onions, (great...recommendation) and my wife had a simple bacon sandwich, both were excellent. The coleslaw is also to die for. We will definitely return when we are passing through Oswestry.More

If you like homemade type pies - Gillham's is the place to go - so much choice and very good quality - all nice and clean. Selections of pate and quiches - tea shop at rear or buy to go.

Gillhams delicatessen is such a lovely place to shop and eat. We thoroughly enjoyed the full English breakfasts on both days during our stay in Oswestry. Others had scrambled eggs and the most delicious smoked salmon, the sausages are amazing. Delicious cappuccino. Everything so fresh...and the staff cannot do enough for you. They are so professional and happy in their work obviously as so pleasant and smiling. The decor is lovely. Spotlessly clean throughout. What a treat to exit past the delicatessen counter, stopping for a selection of the treats on show, pies, sausage rolls, cheese selection and the cooked meats are absolutely delicious. Everything so fresh. We all left with a box of treats. Can't wait for our next trip to Oswestry, when Gillhams is top of our list.More

Stopped off here and had breakfast which was amazingly tasty. Never seen egg yolks as golden and fresh. Lovely. Nice thick freshly sliced toast as well. No expense spared on quality here. We will be back. Well Done Gillhams!
