Good food but not really good value

I've been to the Old Post Office three times, and although I've enjoyed the food, I think it is overpriced. Today I ordered the beef burger with cheese as an extra. The cheese had disappeared. When I commented on it - was told that they do it to melt it. OK - but please leave some evidence. It... read more

I realise it's a grill restaurant however vegetarians do eat out with meat eaters too!!! Perhaps the post office needs to remember this!!!

5 of us here for the first time on recommendation from friends. Strange service, staff numerous and instead of having one or two servers for each table by the end of the night we had been served by everyone. To say there were a lot of staff It was difficult to get attention when ready to order and pay. Meals... More

Was taken here for a special treat by family. The meals are really nice but expect to pay quite an higher than normal price. Not a great deal of room and you are advised to book. Ideal if you like steaks you get to chose the size you want and it gets cut in front of you.

Where do I start, my partner was brought a piece of Rib Eye Steak to the table so he could select the size he wanted, he did this and asked for it medium rare. On arrival the steak was raw in the middle and accompanied by lumps of grissle and fat (yes I now rib eye is like this) but... More

Both had steak and mushroom pie with handcut chips, it was DELICIOUS, I only had one chip as the pie was filling and admittedly we did have starters! The portions are big, next time we will share as its a shame to waste good food. Staff attentive. Will be back.

We arrived as a party of 4 without a reservation on a Tuesday evening. We were quickly given a table and advised if we order in the next 5 minutes we could have the special 2 course offer. The restaurant was very busy and the staff were very attentive. The food was fabulous and plentiful. Highly recommended we will visit... More
