Excellent in every way apart from the roast potatoes

My daughter and I had lunch here today. We had the pork roast which was absolutely delicious. Everything perfect - service, pork belly and the veggies were beuatifully cooked - apart from the roast potatoes. They were not crispy or browned but were tasty.

Oh, Woowoo77! We're so sorry about your roasties weren't up to scratch. If we had known at the time we would have been really happy to cook you some more - perfectly golden, perfectly crispy, perfectly roastie. Perhaps we can tempt you back this weekend? More

This pub/restaurant is in a really lovely building in the centre of Wallingford - great for drinks (be that morning coffee or pre-dinner cocktails) and then great food. I was truly tempted by the pork belly and chicken scratching nibbles... but instead went for the more substantial bruschetta, while my partner went for the very acceptable smoked salmon. On another... More

A couple of errors on the ordering which were sorted efficiently. Food was good and service friendly. Lots of room in a comfortable atmosphere.

Apologies for those early errors, Steve. But we're pleased to hear that we corrected them quickly and to your satisfaction. Love to hear that you enjoyed spending time in our restaurant. When we first bought the site we worked really hard to open up this old posting house to become a modern, airy restaurant. That was back in 2009 and... More

Popped in on the off chance on Easter Sunday, my wife and myself were visiting the area and called into the OPO for a nice relaxing, value for money meal. Afraid to say that the waitress staff must have been employed for being introvert and miserable... we got the occasional grunt when we ordered, nobody came to see if all... More

We've been to the O.P.O. many times, and have consistently found the service to be top notch, with food to match. It's a lovely environment to be in for cosy dinner-for-two's, as well as being really family friendly when we take the kids.

This is exactly what we had in mind when we first opened, and to hear we have met this goal is praise indeed. We look forward to seeing... More

My mum and I went to the Old Post Office for lunch - we had a mix of starters rather than ordering from the "mains" menu, but this didn't seem to be a problem... .we both had sweet potato fries and calamari/dip. They were absolutely delicious, well presented and tasty. I have now converted my mum to sweet potato fries... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us, Maddy. Going 'tapas-style' from the starters is a great idea. Brilliant when you don't want to commit to just one dish and try lots of yummy things in one go. If this is your style, you might want to move on to the sharing platters next. We're launching our new menu... More

The Old Post office is a nicely set up place with an comfortable yet upmarket feel about the place. I cannot fault the service or the décor. The food however, whilst obviously aiming high, fell a bit short of the mark. Flashy garnish streaks of sauces don't add much when your piece of chicken is dry.

We absolutely LOVE this review, PatricksMum - thank you!
