Had beer battered haddock and within 4 hours had severe sickness and diarrhoea. Unwell for 4 days and the girlfriends scampi wasn't very good either. Also her friend had the same symptoms after a meal . Won't be going again

the old post office is a great value restaurant, all food is mostly home made and tasty. The special early bird is good value although the a la carte is got more quality on it, but you get what you pay for. The price is fair and drinks are good quality too!

The food, it's presentation and size could not be faulted. The staff were friendly and reasonably attentive, the venue looked a little tired in places but generally a great meal and well worth a visit.

Visited her for Sunday lunch on 3 May. On arrival we noted how empty the place was and how many staff there were!!! However, we were greeted immediately by very polite staff and shown to our table.

Had Sunday lunch here on 3 May. Food was good but more expensive than most places - shocked to find that we had to also pay extra for a bowl of mash to go with our roast dinners (the mash was not great when it arrived - very overworked and shiny). Really mixed bag on the service front. Felt very... More
