We booked for a surprise 50th birthday celebration for 19 guests and arrived to find that we had the whole restaurant to ourselves which was a nice touch. We were greeted by friendly staff and a roaring fire in the log burner. The bar area was lovely and cosy and the restaurant was also very quaint. The food was absolutely... More

I have stayed in Chesterfield many times recently and very sadly only discovered the Old Post last night. The woman even very kindly rang and let them know I was on my way. As a single female...

However, in the last year or so, the owners, including the Chef, have purchased another pub and de-camped to the new location. This means that The Old Post now has a new Chef,... More

Visited recently with a friend, and took advantage of their early dining offer. Every single item of food that came out of that kitchen was utterly superb. Had fillet of beef for main, and it was easily the best beef I have ever eaten. Cooked to perfection. Good wine selection reasonably priced. All rounded off with excellent service. :-) Chesterfield... More

We have been to the Old Post for Sunday lunch on three occasions over the past year & it has been excellent each time. Great service - friendly & professional staff with a good eye for detail. It is a small restaurant, but the tables were well spaced & the food has been impeccable on each occasion. The menus varied... More
