The town has a wealth of character and facilities to offer. There are a range of multiple retailers in the town, to include Boots, Superdrug, W H Smith, Poundland, Prezzo, Home Bargains, Costa, Greggs, and has an extremely active business community, and many events laid on during the year to attract and support custom and tourism, much of which take place at the very popular Cae Glas Park which is situated directly opposite the subject premises.

This business is available now due to personal reasons, after 10 years trading, established by a couple who are well experienced in the catering trade previously. The business presents a superb and quite rare opportunity for another enthused operator to take up the reigns and continue this business, and no doubt expand, including it being a wonderful site for evening restaurant/bistro.
There are few competing businesses within the town offering an attractive restaurant/bistro offer, and it is generally regarded that the town catchment is crying out for more businesses of this kind. Currently, due to personal reasons now for the sale the owners have adopted the following hours – 10.00am – 15.00pm, Thursday-Sunday. Prior to this, they had also included Wednesdays, but there is no doubt that the business has potential to operate, if wanted, 7 days a week, daytime and evenings when required. Currently, the business has a large hot menu including hotpots, traditional meals, lasagne, pastas, soups, jackets, paninis, breakfast items, afternoon teas, cakes, buffets etc. Also offered are weekly Sunday lunch takeaways – which regularly cater for over 60 people. Also extremely popular are the Christmas lunch and Mother Day takeaway meals, which are fully booked from year to year. We understand the business is not licensed to sell alcohol.
The business has maintained a Number One position on Trip Adviser, since it opened we are advised, and the documented testimonies are evidence on the excellent reputation of the business.
A recent award for the business includes a Gold First Place Award, under Edible England brand, supported by Oswestry Town Council Accolade.
The business was established around 10 years ago by the current operators, and set up new at that time. The vendors carried out a number of significant improvements to the space, making it very suitable for its current use, to include appropriate air conditioning for the equipment.
