“Don't eat here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

We were told that the food was good here, so, new to Oswestry, this was one of the first pubs we stopped to eat at: big mistake. After waiting 45 minutes from ordering till the food arrived (time to go shopping during the wait), we were hugely disappointed, first by the presentation of the food (eg: chile con carne is one spoon of slop served on a bed of over-cooked bright yellow rice) and secondly by the taste (chile con carne tasted like spaghetti bolognese, very little seasoning). We only finished our meals because we were starving, especially after a three-quarter of an hour wait. We certainly won't be coming back here again, which is too bad since the atmosphere is quite lovely. Toilets sticky and not smelling so fresh either. There must be better places to spend your money in Oswestry.

Called in today for a meal. There was a good selection on menu . I can recommend the pasta. My wife can recommend the prawn salad. Obviously a meeting point for the locals but still we were made very welcome. We had a very pleasant window seat and watched the world of Oswestry pass by. The local museum is also worth a visit and it too , set in the old court house, is full of old charm.
As with any old building, don't go to the Griffin expecting McDonalds. It is a quaint individual place full of books, Irish bodrhans and even a Green Man!

Stayed here for 2 nights (moved to a different place) ordered fish and chips and was served undercooked fish that was still raw, brought it to the attention of the landlady who said she would let the chef know, did not get a replacement fish or a refund so £5 for chips and peas, first room they put me in has a wasps nest outside the window so change room to one with no window, this lead to two hot and uncomfortable nights. The place overall was very dirty and unkempt. For £35 per night it was a total rip off. Please see pics to understand. Would not recommend to anyone
