Excellent as always.

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!

Came here on Friday for my birthday. The food was gorgeous, I had scallops, beef and xmas pudding. Yum yum yum. The place is a little expensive so only really for treats, but its a lovely little place, good quality with a very friendly waitress. We would definitely come again.

I haven't been for quite a while but when visiting I found the service, staff, general atmosphere and food excellent. I grew up in this area and remember this building and the history and it brings back child hood memories

A great experience altogether, the restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere and the owners give great attention to detail, are very knowledgeable around all aspects of the food and drink they offer, including sourcing and provenance. The level of service and the quality of food served has never been other than to an excellent standard and I would be happy to... More

My husband booked for a surprise meal. It was very disappointing, the place is devoid of ambience/atmosphere. The food was ok but overpriced. It always seems empty and sad when passing

Staying overnight in Chesterfield, we weren't sure where to go for an evening meal. Our usual eatery was fully booked and we didn't fancy a Thai/Indian etc. Tripadvisor to the rescue. At 7.00 we rang The Old Post House to see if they could fit us in, without too much hope as it was Saturday night. But, if we didn't... More

First time we have since it has changed ownership. Top quality food, the venison was devine and the lamb was cooked to perfection. The service was attentive from beginning to end and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed.

It was our first visit to Chesterfield and we found ourselves in a town we did not know on a Friday evening. We searched the town centre for somewhere nice to eat but no one could help us. On returning to the car we saw the Old Post Restaurant from the car park. We walked in and luckily they had... More
