I would not bother having a meal here. I found the service to be very slow and unattentive and the meal itself unpalatable.

This is a good quality venue situated in an amazing old building that was literally the old post office. It has good food, service and a lively atmosphere. Suits all ages and kids welcomed and catered for. Love the open kitchen with chefs visible.

The Old Post Office used to be my go-to place to eat in Wallingford. I have eaten here numerous times over the years, mainly for work, but for social occasions as well, and the food was always very good. However, I ate here last night and the food has seriously gone downhill. I had the whitebait to start. In the... More

I had travelled over 200 miles to spend the day with my 97 year old mother & sister & decided on the old post office as a lovely venue with relatively easy access for my mother. I have used the same venue a few times previously very successfully. My sister dropped us off & went to park the car. I... More

The Old Post Office offers quality with high end products. I had been here a few times in December. The slow cooked belly of pork was fantastic as was the beef medallions my girlfriend had when we went and the steak I had at my work Christmas function was cooked very well considering the number of people not to mention...

The OPO used to be my place of choice. I would visit at least once a week. Now I never go unless I have to. The service is awful. The food is overpriced for basic pub grub. Wine per glass is extortionate, so take a mortgage out before visiting. I hope that Oakham Inns take note and do something about... More

We were quite apprehensive about going here as the previous reviews weren't great! But we decided to give it a go as my parents had had coffee there and thought it was similar to the restaurant we were going to go to which was closed on Mondays unfortunately! Yes customer service maybe a little slower at weekends and probably very... More

This is a pub in my home town, when I first moved here it was on my list of places I had to go as the website looked so nice. It has now been relegated to the place I go if I need food, don't mind waiting a while for service and don't mind being over charged for average food!
