Reading some comments on here makes me wonder how hard some people ate to please. We had scallops and the Yorkshire puds to start, the pork and the beef as mains. The scallops on black pudding with bacon were unreal and although my better half raved about how great the 24 day aged beef fillet was, I had the worlds... More

I have been eating at The Old Post for a few years now and have always found the good, service and atmosphere beyond excellent. I recently went with friends and was a little dissappointed with a few things, especially as it was the first visit for my friends and I had been telling them how wonderful it was! Firstly I... More

The food was average quality and certainly not worth the price. The cooking smells from the kitchen were overwhelming. There are now many pubs in and around Chesterfield that are producing better quality food in a much nicer environment.

We came one Saturday evening, staff very friendly, however when we sat at our tables, there was a haze of cooking smoke in the restaurant, we really wanted a window open for some ventilation, but due to the old building non of the windows would open, it did clear after about 30mins. The main course (beef) was beautiful, really tender,... More

We ate here back in March 2014 and had what can only be described as one of the best meals I have had in years. The food was superb, faultless in fact, the service was excellent, attentive but not overpowering and the general ambiance was relaxed and friendly. However we returned on the 7th June for my mum's birthday and... More

A small place,just 8 tables,very comfortable atmosphere. The food was some of the best I have eaten anywhere in the world. The staff were perfect.sit as close to the kitchen as possible if you like good music. Well worth finding this place out.

We hadn't booked, but chanced our arm and were pleasantly surprised to find there had been a couple of cancellations. Really well looked after. Menu just right - too many dishes is normally a good sign that a restaurant hasn't quite perfected anything, but there was still a good choice of dishes. Both the lamb and the beef fillet were...

I was looking for a fine dining restaurant for our wedding anniversary and was recommended this by several people I know. We were not disappointed! The standard of food and service is excellent. My wife had the scallops and I the Chicken Liver Parfait, both delicious. My wife is one of those who always tends to get the fatty piece... More
