The Sunday roast pork dinner was fabulous - succulent meat, typically huge Yorkshire pud, loads of gravy, roast potatoes, stuffing and a side of veggies. Sweet Strawberries and a great espresso for dessert. Service was good - polite and always there when you needed them. One of the waitresses overheard us commenting that we'd like to plan our lunch with... More

Visited for the first time recently after hearing lots of good reviews. We went for the postmans offer £13.50 for 2 courses. I had fish cake and steak, which are £6.95 approx and £11.95 approx full price so it's quite a good saving, some of the meals were much less so not such a good saving and I can't understand... More

We visited here for my birthday, I was relatively pleased with my meal. I had a fillet steak and they bring the meet raw prior to cooking, you pick your meet and tell them how big you want the steak. I dare not ask for a decent size, it seemed like I was being greedy, I much prefer the size... More

We have never had a bad meal here at The Old Post Office and this visit was no different. As usual on a Sunday lunch time it is advisable to book in advance. Always welcomed with a smile and very efficient service. Our table wasn't quite ready so drinks were ordered and brought over quickly and then we were seated.... More

The food was beautiful with too much to eat and staff were friendly. We did feel rushed inbetween courses and at the end when we asked for ten minutes to decide whether we wanted desserts we were presented with the bill. Sort of killed the night.

I was disappointed with the fact that little has been done for disabled access to the building, The access is by steps that are very narrow and uneven and if you wanted to go to the other entrance you had to walk round a fair way. The atmosphere wasn't as friendly as expected of the local area and the food... More

I eat at the Old Post Office regularly and the food has always been excellent. A range of deliciously cooked fresh food with Also a lot of specials. I love the fat chips and there is always a variety of fish dishes. The steak they bring out and you choose how much you would like. I strongly recommend this place... More
