The Bailey Head


Multi award-winning pub,  The Bailey Head, is situated on Bailey Head (market square) in Oswestry specialising in great real ales and craft beers from microbreweries. They don’t sell any mainstream draught beers.

With an extensive Gin Menu and a growing range of malt whiskies, there’s something to match your tastes.

The Bailey Head makes simple platters of Shropshire and Welsh Cheeses and Antipasti, locally made pork pies and scotch eggs and Ploughman’s Lunches, sourcing as many ingredients locally as possible.

It is a friendly pub, working with the local community and community groups.

Whether it is a “stitch and bitch” group, or a local club or society, many enjoy The Bailey Head as a meeting venue. So, just ask for and area to be reserved.

Dogs are very welcome, just ask for a water bowl. And there’s always doggy snacks available.

In addition, there are live music nights, concentrating on roots, blues and the more esoteric.
