Bar, Lounge & Terrace

Our bar, lounge and hotel terrace – the perfect place for relaxed drinks and food. A warm welcome to everyone who visits The Sweeney, whether you’re simply passing or staying at our hotel.

With floor to ceiling windows on two sides, which open up to the patio and gardens surrounding the hotel, our bar is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the views of the stunning Sweeney estate, set in the Shropshire countryside.


The Bar & Lounge

The bar and lounge at The Sweeney is the perfect place for a tipple as well as relaxed dining all year around with comfy seats, beautiful views and a friendly team to help you enjoy your time with us.

We pride ourselves on serving a menu of fresh dishes that our kitchen brigade changes regularly to make the most of the local seasonal cuisine from Shropshire, Mid Wales and the surrounding counties.

We’re also delighted to share our well stocked bar menu, including a large range of gins (more on this below!) single malts, cocktails, plus an extensive wine list with many favourites offered by the glass.

We have a number of local beers including Station Bitter from the local Stonehouse microbrewery, just two miles up the road.

In the winter our original Adams Marble fireplace is lit in the lounge, and we often find our guests enjoying a cosy afternoon tea in front of it, the best in Oswestry if we do say so ourselves.


The Terrace

In the summer we throw open our doors on to our terrace overlooking our gardens and the surrounding Shropshire views – the ultimate place to spend an evening with friends, enjoying a gin… or 3 (to say we love gin at The Sweeney is an understatement).


The Sweeney Gin Festival

The Sweeney has one of the largest gin selections in Oswestry and the surrounding area, making it a must visit place for gin lovers – not that you need an excuse to visit our bar!

Our team has truly embraced the public’s love of the spirit, bringing in a ‘Gin of the week’ (chosen by individual members of The Sweeney team), as well as launching the hugely successful Sweeney Gin Fest.

Now in its 3rd year, the gin festival celebrates all things gin over a 2-day celebration with food, entertainment and more happening on-site at The Sweeney.
