I've driven past this pub several times over the years but never been in. It doesn't look much from the outside and is just off junction 38 of the M1. When we went inside I was really surprised to see the decor was clean, modern and fresh looking. Not what I expected! The waitress was lovely and they were happy... More

Went for Valentine's day meal with the wife. Everything was just as you would want it. Great service from helpful and friendly staff. Fantastic food quality cooked as requested. (Big Mixed Grill and Selected Sirloin Steak). Nice athmosphere in warm plesent and clean surroundings. Little more expensive than many local offerings but given the quality and experience well worth it.

Had mushrooms to start, mushrooms didn't taste cooked, burger was very greasy with a lot of fat coming out and no salad and the chips were undercooked. Disappointing as used to visit a lot but seems to lack in standards. Postman menu has gone up by £3! Not so much value for money.

We have visited the Post Office several times and always enjoyed the food. Their steaks are superb and offer very good value for money. We have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful even when the restaurant is very busy. Always advisable to book because it is popular and the relatively limited seating does not offer much scope... More

I went here on Friday 30th January for my 70th birthday with my family. The experience we had was second to none, the staff were friendly, nothing was too much trouble and my grandchildren (one is 2 years old) were especially well looked after. I am very hard to please when I order steak prefering it to be 'blue' and... More
