Food ok but a little over priced for what it is! Has plenty of potential and could be improved on with a little bit more variation in the menu

12 of us went there for lunch. Not one word of complaint from anyone. From steak to curry, fish to omelette - really well presented and excellent value.

We go here quite a lot for lunch. The staff are very friendly and make you welcome and the food has always been good. This of course, is what I'd expect anyway from a restaurant. Nothing special about this place, but consistency is definitely worth mentioning.

As I was a regular visitor to the post office, I thought I would revisit after a long absence. Was not disappointed. Friendly staff and still food.

Excellent food and generous portions. Good clean premises and great service. Car parking is at the rear and a bit awkward to get in to but well worth the effort
