History

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 in our restaurant at The Royal Oak Hotel.
