History 

The Wynnstay Hotel started life as a well-known coaching inn serving the major routes connecting Liverpool to Cardiff and London to Holyhead. There are references to the site as far back as 1727, but the impressive facade seen today is a fine example to typical Georgian architecture. 

The name of 'Wynnstay' is believed to have derived from the coat of arms of the Ruabon-based Williams-Wynn family, who emerged as one of the wealthiest and most influential familes in Wales during the eighteen century. 

The hotel has evolved significanly over the years, having had several owners and having catered for many important dignitaries. It was the place where public assemblies were held and its list of esteemed guests includes a young Queen Victoria. 

The impressive Crown Bowling Green has been an important part of Oswestry life for nearly 200 years and is still in regular use today.
