An early 18th Century listed building, formerly the coach house of the hotel next door. The Oak is one of Oswestry’s many free houses. This relaxed, unspoilt pub is situated close to the town centre opposite the parish church of St Oswald. There is a small public bar/games room at the front and behind is a much larger and comfortable lounge with two screens for sports events. Note the interesting listing of old Oswestry pubs on the wall. The lounge may be accessed via the public bar or via the passage that runs down the side of the pub. The passage also leads to the garden to the rear of the pub. Listed in CAMRA's "Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors". It was also listed in an early Good Beer Guide in 1975. Entries were very brief in those days, but here's what it said - "pleasant atmosphere". Apparently M&B Mild and Bitter were available together with "Bass/Worthington" Bitter.
