Beautiful steak but not accommodating with changing anything. I don't like onion rings mushrooms tomatoes or black pudding, you can have a meal without them but can't have anything else in place without having to pay. It is expensive for just steak and chips so then I have to pay extra for veg... read more

A Saturday night visit didn't disappoint. The place was packed out but there was no sense of any panic. The atmosphere was chilled and relaxed. The menu and specials board give you plenty to choose from but I'm a sucker for steak and I love the concept of fetching it to the table to measure your own portion. Overall it... More

Went in a large group for a birthday meal last month. Both myself and friend who had the same seafood dish were extremely ill after eating here. Luckily the two pregnant ladies in the group did not get ill as I would have felt so awful for arranging the dinner. Won't go back in a hurry.

Having heard good things from family members we were looking forward to visiting the Old Post Office; our excitement was however short lived. We we're booked in at 5:30pm so not in the midst of the Saturday evening rush. You would expect therefore that the experience would be relaxed; far from it. The whole experience was rushed we were shown... More

Beautiful steak but not accommodating with changing anything. I don't like onion rings mushrooms tomatoes or black pudding, you can have a meal without them but can't have anything else in place without having to pay. It is expensive for just steak and chips so then I have to pay extra for veg to make the plate look full.

Came here for the first time with friends and food was amazing. We all had the steak and it was cooked to perfection, presented great and tasted amazing. Pub looks lovely too. It is on the pricier side but you are paying for better quality product. My qualm with this place - I ordered a gin and tonic and the... More
