booked after reviews on TA, didn't disappoint. excellent food great surroundings in lovely town. Waitress charming if not cheeky- 3 course meal for £17.95, fab. didn't quite understand the a la carte bit on the menu as the set price seemed to include all the a la carte dishes too although some supplements were required, anyway worth a visit.

The evening didn't start very well, service was a little slow and we had to ask a couple of times for our drinks. But once the food arrived they redeemed themselves, wow, could not fault the food. I think they were short staffed that night as only saw two people running around and wait I go all the tables. So... More

We strolled into Postilion without a reservation; luckily we got a table. I am not a fan of French Cuisine so I was delighted when we had such a delicious meal! When you walk in you can catch a glimpse of the chef working - cooking up imaginitive and tempting combinations...even for a traditionalist like me.

My partner and I visited this restaurant last year and came back for our anniversary. It was a last minute booking and we had to change our reservation last minute, the staff were very accommodating and when we arrived we were shown to a lovely secluded table. The atmosphere is lovely, very soft and relaxing. The toilets are accessed via... More

On a recent holiday to the Lake District, my fiancee and I found this restaurant on tripadvisor and were intrigued. The interest paid off. Great food, awesome service. Both of us were very satisified with our meals, and wine choices. Oddly enough, we had passed by the place earlier and given it a pass as an off the beaten path... More

Had an early dinner which was a three course fixed price meal and which was considerably cheaper before 7pm. We were shown our seat by a lovely waiter who "looked after us" for the evening. It was very busy but we did not feel neglected. The food was exceptionally good. I found mine faultless. It looked good, tasted good and... More
