The Oak Guilsfield

…is a destination restaurant and traditional British pub

You may ask yourself, “Where can I go for great food? Where can I get a traditional pub feel and avoid all those horrible chain pubs? Where can I have a great meal at reasonable price?”
Well if you live in mid Wales or anywhere around Welshpool you will find out by visiting us at The Oak! We are convenient for Shrewsbury and Oswestry too and are easy to find.

The Oak is a 17th century timber frames building standing back from the road in the charming village of Guilsfield, just 10 minutes from Welshpool. The Oak Guilsfield is so old it sports many original features and even has part of the original wattle and daub structure on view at the end of the bar. It is the quintessential British Pub serving the local community and much further afield as a destination venue. If you are looking for a restaurant in the Welshpool area, look no further!


As well as being a traditional pub we serve exceptional food with a seasonal menu that sources all its produce locally

The Oak Beer garden

The Oak Inn has a children’s play area where children can play safely. There is a large garden area and also a very attractive large patio area at the front of the pub, both with plenty of seating. Of course we also allow our well-behaved ‘four-legged friends’ outside in the garden and in the bar.

Guilsfield is a village steeped in history and nestles serenely into the mid Wales countryside and The Oak reflects this magnificently; we provides an ideal base to explore the idyllic settings and are close to several caravan parks and welcome walkers and holiday makers all year round. We even have a great takeaway menu for those who wish to retire to their camp sites in the evening.

We do hope you love the place as much as we do, and hope you will come and visit us very soon. There is ample parking, a warm welcome from the proprietors and their staff who will endeavour to cater for your every requirement.
