We're delighted to have reopened with a new restaurant and bar area following a £250,000 refurbishment, but despite the work, Kevin Charity, founder and managing director of the Coaching Inn Group, said he is keen to maintain the hotel’s historical features.

He said: “The Royal Oak has a fantastic history and we are keen to ensure that the refurbishment is done sympathetically, retaining the hotel’s charm, whilst creating a more modern, attractive environment that is appealing to today’s discerning guests.”

General Manager, Mark Chapman, also added: “We are delighted with how the hotel looks and are excited about welcoming customers old and new to the hotel.”

The hotel is Grade II listed and began its life in the 18th century, however also includes a chimney stack which features stone which came from an abbey that once stood in nearby village Pool Quay, dating back to Elizabethan times. You can read more about this on our History Tab (below).

The Royal Oak Hotel, Eatery & Coffee House has Grade II listed status as the building has a great deal of history dating back to the 18th Century. The hotel also features a chimney stack with stone that came from an abbey that once stood in Pool Quay, which dates back to Elizabethan times. The Hotel was formerly the manor house of the Earl of Powis until 1927 when it became a coaching inn.

Originally the hotel lay in the grounds of nearby Powis Castle and during its existence this beautiful Georgian building has welcomed many travellers through its doors. Whilst operating as a coaching inn on the main route to the west coast of Wales, our function suite - the Powis Suite - was used as a stables with its own Ostler. More recently in 2010 The Royal Oak Hotel has had the pleasure of welcoming one of the most prestigious guests that the world can welcome, Her Majesty the Queen, when she visited Welshpool to open its new indoor cattle market. Her Majesty stopped in to have lunch at The Royal Oak Hotel.
