Excellent choice

Unsure as to which restaurant to visit we did a process of elimination by 'window shopping' the restaurants in the area. Chose Postilion for its choice of menu and 2 or 3 course offers, couldn't have been more pleased with reception, décor and most importantly the food. Presentation, quality and... read more

During my recent visit was shocked to see this quality restaurant has ceased trading. A sad loss and no further information posted on what is now an empty premises.

I booked this restaurant for my partners birthday a month in advance due to good reviews. I have email confirmation of my booking and on attendance the restaurant was closed. There was no note on the door and no answer to any of the contact numbers to offer an explanation for this. I think its very poor service that they... More

Dropped by without booking , they managed to squeeze us in , food good but a bit pricey . If in Bowness again , would I go back ? Probably not but that's nothing against the restaurant , just like to try a different place as never been to Bowness before

went here for the first time last Saturday 11 July, booked in advance and our table was ready at 8pm. It is a bit of a tight squeeze round the tables as it's quite a small restaurant. For starters, I had the Greek parcels which were v nice and the Mrs had sea bass which she loved. For mains I... More

We wanted to have one last meal at this restaurant as we have enjoyed several really high quality evenings here before and didn't want it to close without us experiencing it one last time. I have no idea what the reviewers who have added negative comments about the Postilion where expecting or are used to but our experiences have always... More

This restaurant had a hidden kind of class. The food was exemplified by the quality of service. The choice and range of wine was second to non. It was hard to believe that such a small establishment could produce such wonders. As a table of 4 we tried to sample as much as we could. Starters of salt beef, Greek... More

Took advantage of the 3-course menu offered before 7pm, which in itself was good value, but felt that there were not enough staff which resulted in less than satisfactory service, and the maître d' never once made 'eye contact' with us. We also felt that the tables were somewhat too close together and we were cosier with our neighbours than... More

We were celebrating my birthday and couldn't have asked for a better venue. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was excellent both in quality and portion size. Cooked exceptionally well.
