Went with my boyfriend- at first we were not sure about the place, there was a flustered looking man darting around the place (most of the night) and his customer service wasn't great, we enquired about the brandy and he just responded by saying- I don't know what they are and didn't try to help!! However from then on the... More

From the moment you walk in, you are stunned by welcoming, attentive and efficient staff. Starters of ceviche and goat cheese were fantastic , followed by fillet steak and cod wrapped in paper recommended by the waiter,"thanks" the restaurant is small and quaint. The music also is quite good playlist! Thank you very much to all of you for unforgettable... More

We visited this great place last week. We were visiting Bowness for a few days and came across this delightful place to have dinner. The food was wonderful and very reasonably priced. We would recommend a visit.

When we arrived we were very quickly ushered to our table by what I assume was the Manager, he was putting the menus on the table before any of us had sat down. He came back a couple of minutes later to take our drinks order - we hadn't had chance to look at the wine list, when asked what... More

We visited on the 3rd of April 2015, the restaurant was fully booked - we waited a while to be served although we did turn up 10 minutes early for our table - so can be forgiven. From the moment we had our menus we were rushed through a three course meal in an hour, we ordered wine to accompany... More

Quirky little place, intimate, tiny rooms, but great food and quite good veggie choices. Really well presented and tasty, great flavours and attention to detail.

This is not a Michelin star quality restaurant. The 'foodies' who listed a review probably missed the point (and price). The quality of the food at Postilion has to be compared to other restaurants, which includes pubs, that charge similar prices. When you do that, Postilion is one of the best. Great choice and well prepared and very tasty. Service... More
