The Highwayman (Oswestry)
Advantages: Food, Price
I do like to eat out! It doesn't have to be a special night out having a meal; I quite enjoy eating out as in 'popping into a cafe, for a quick bite to eat, during a bit of shopping or something like that. One of my favourite places to 'have a bite to eat' is The Highwayman!
For those of you who don't know, The Highwayman is a pub in Oswestry, Shropshire. The pub is owned by Marston's Inns and Taverns. The pub is open every day between around 12 and 10:30pm.
The pub has a very relaxed and cosy atmosphere and there are different sections where you can sit. There around four different sections in total. I really like this pub because of it's atmosphere. I love going there to meet friends for a quiet drink or a meal. It's also great for kids as it is very kid-friendly.
I think that the menu is great because there are so many options. I am a vegetarian, and on top of that I am a fussy eater, although I always find something to eat here. There are lots of different meals to suit all kinds of tastes. Every Wednesday is 'curry night' and every Sunday, they do a 'cavery'.
~* Menu Sample*~
* Fish and Chips *
* Chicken and Mushroom Pasta *
* Steaks *
* Cajun Chicken*
Some of my favourite meals here include a 'brocoli and cauliflower pastry pie', which is served with chips and peas, or sometimes if I am only after something 'small', I'll have a jacket potato with cheese. Sometimes if I don't want anything fancy, I have a chip buttie!
Children can have the usual meals like 'Chips and fish fingers', 'Burgers' and 'Pizza' or more 'fancy things like 'spaghetti bolognese', even a chicken dinner. There is even a 'make your own tortilla wraps' if they want. The kids meals are also great value for money , ranging from as little as £1.10 for a bowl of soup as a starter, to £2.99 for a main course and just £1.25 for desert!
The meals are fantastic value for money! For example, Mondays to Fridays they do a special offer where you can get one of their light bites and a desert for just £4.25, which I think is excellent value for money. The first time I tried this offer, I had imagined that the portions would be really small, but they are a decent size! I think that these are meals are especially ideal for older people, or children who don't fancy the usual kids 'chips and chicken nuggets' type meals. You can also get some of the main meals as light bites which I think is great.
The meals are always very tasty and always to a very high standard.I have had a meal there many of times over the years, and everytime they have been fantasic! You never have to wait long for your meal ; even at busy times, and it's usually quite busy. One thing that I do like is that, even if there are a lot of people there and it is busy, it's never noisy , it still has it's calm and relaxed attitude. This is place is very popular, and it is so obvious why!
I especially like their desers menu!! I always find choosing a desert difficult as there are so many delicious choices. Some of my favourites include :
~* Hot Chocolate Chip Brownie Cake (£2.95) *~
~*Apple Pie (£2.95) *~
~*Mega Chocolate Sundae (It's massive!!!) £5.25 -Great for sharing!! *~
The service here is always good ; usually young students. They are always provide a good service ; quick, polite and nothing is too much trouble, which is good. They always make you feel welcome!
I really like the Highway man, for a number of reasons! It's friendly , has a relaxed and cosy atmosphere , is cheap and just generally a great place!! What I like also, is the fact that you can 'pop in at anytime', whether it be lunchtime, after a day of shopping, or for an evening meal! It really is a perfect place!
I would definately recommend the Highway man!!
Thanks for reading!
