Having visited the 'OPO' for lunches and coffees on previous occasions, I was happy to propose it as s venue for a special treat for dinner for extended family on a Sunday evening. The service was slow and indifferent, taking half an hour for drinks to be served, and a similar amount of time for bread. The food, when it... More

It was a Sunday evening so the place wasn't busy and I was seated quickly. As soon as I sat down I asked for a sparkling water and glass of wine. Both came reasonably quickly but there was no glass for the water. The waitress said she would get it but then seemed to forget so I had to ask... More

Old exterior with an Americanized interior - you don't go there for the atmosphere unless you want modern, you go for the food.

The Old Post Office is a little jewel. Very lively and the staff are very polite and friendly. Great cocktails and ales. Food and severe was impeccable and very good value for money. If we ever find ourselves in this part of the world again we will definitely pay it a visit again!!!

Went to the Old Post Office with my partner for some breakfast. It was lovely. However it has a very strange atmosphere. It's far too noisy and the staff have a habit of shouting at each other when asking for things.

A lovely building in the centre of Wallingford that has been nicely restored with a nice open plan kitchen showing off the shiny Josper grill. We started off with olives, champagne and a weiss beer. I had to ask for a different glass for the beer as it was disgusting. Greasy and covered in smears. The replacement glass wasn't much... More

Dear Bernikp102, There's a great deal of information in your review here and, while I do not agree with all of it, it is obvious that we let ourselves down in some key areas and that you left the restaurant very unhappy. I whole-heartedly apologise for this and can only assure you that his sort of break down is rare... More

Always enjoyed The Old Post Office and whereas in the past it's been a bit hit or miss, they seem to have turned a corner as the service is much better now. Comfortable big softy arm chairs inside, cosy corners for private chats with pals, good coffee and try the hot chocolate, it's a must.

Dear peejay2013, This really made our day, thank you most kindly. We are human beings and don't always get it right, but it's fantastic to see that the hard work the Team has put in has yielded such tangible results. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

The Old Post Office is a staple of ours (living in the town). They refresh their food & wine menu once or twice a year, and there is always plenty to choose from. The food is well presented and portioned, and the service is always good. Worth booking if you're going on a weekend - its not always necessary but... More
