Visited in April for an anniversary. The food was excellent and the three course mid week special extremely good value for the price. The service was helpful but not overly attentive which was just right. They had a great wine selection. All in all a great experience and I would highly recommend.

My wife and I ate here with a group of friends on a Saturday evening, there were 10 of us in total so the restaurant asked for a £5 a head deposit and pre orders for starters and mains which was fair enough. The quality of the food was excellent but the quantity of vegetables on some of the main... More

I'm originally from Chesterfield, but live in Glasgow and close the Old Post for a family meal for my 50th birthday. I arranged it via various email exchanges - they couldn't have been more helpful, catering for fussy kids and fussy parents, tweaking menus to whatever we wanted. The meal on the day was excellent, as was the service. Also,... More

My son took me for a surprise meal. We went early and had the early bird menu - equivelent to the main menu but much cheaper. The food was amazing. Beautifully prepared, cooked and presented. Excellent value for money. Recommended

Visited this restaurant with friends on their,& trip advisor, recommendation. It was ok. Not great. Not awful. My starter was mediocre, my beef was overcooked ( not medium, as requested), my dessert was sent back & service felt rushed. The restaurant is cramped, the music is inappropriate ( an 80's compilation) & the service satisfactory. I won't be returning.

We've eaten here a few times now and it's always great! The place is really cosy with a few tables dotted around. We could hear the bustle of the kitchen too which was exciting! Great food and a lovely front of house team. Will be returning again during the summer!
