I've eaten here a few times and have always found it pleasant. However we ate there recently on a Sunday and booked ahead a 30 mins ahead whilst on route. We arrived, bought a drink and my friend 'booked us in'. As time passed, we asked 2 more waiters and eventually we were seated 45 minutes passed our time. We... More

The last time I went into Wallingford post office was 15 years ago to buy stamps. On a first visit for a decade to the town we found the OPO was now a thriving restaurant with a strong Italian flavour. A great buzz in the place - a mix of business people enjoying lunch and a glass of wine and... More

We have been coming here off and on throughout the last few years and have endured all the different changes of owners and refurbishments. The food often fluctuates from nice to terrible but not knowing which it's going to be we occasionally stop in for a meal. We accidentally stumbled in on the day of their new soft opening and...

Hi glutenfree4kids Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review post-refurb. Whilst we have added a Pizza oven, serving our delicious Forno Vivo pizzas once again - the a la carte menu has changed very little so the food should be the same as it has been. Please do, in future, let us know if your food isn't... More

We dined here after hearing good things. I must confess given its name etc. From the outside I thought it was just a Wetherspoon, but how wrong was I! There is a bar area and then a dining area. We both chose the Roasts and they were lovely - I had Chicken with Lemon and Thyme and my companion had... More

As the only restaurant in Wallingford that caters to young(ish) couples, we were excited to have a baby-free date night. Cool, trendy vibe but always are out of certain foods on arrival. They'd run out of one starter and prawns so that was a shame. Ordered our meal but when mine arrived there were 3 out of 4 items missing... More

The OPO has a fantastic location but it under values it's customer. Recent visit was dire, very little service without hailing the waitress every time we wanted drinks which was embarrassing. No complaints about the actual service it was genuinely nice and friendly but she was so overwhelmed and had way too many covers to deal with. The food started... More

We thought we wpould have a coffee first before heading into lunch. Regrettably we never went further than the drink. Service was very slow and two drinks had to be sent back because they were luke warm. It didn't help that building work was taking place so the place was noisy and you were negotiating your way past ladders and... More

My wife and I were in Wallingford for the day, after having had a good look around the town went for lunch at the Old Post Office. Although the food quality was reasonable it was nothing special and for what it was I thought rather overpriced, especially the desserts at £6 upwards. The waiting staff were friendly enough, but they... More

Hi Holiday-Note Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review.
