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.

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 came on... More

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

We had a group of 49 people and not one negative word speaks volumes for how pleased people were, plenty of friendly staff on duty and a range of starters and main meals were chosen and everyone was quality.

I live very close to The Old Post Office, and it didn't used to be great for food (the service was always fantastic). But over the past year they've completely turned themselves around. The food is OUTSTANDING. The steak pie is incredible. The staff are wonderful... And I've gone for lunches, tea's to a Friday night for a late night... More
