About
Overlooking Wallingford’s market square, the Grade II listed building in St Martin's Street that was once home to the town’s prominent post office, first re-opened its doors as an Oakman Inn in 2009. In addition to bearing the same name, The Old Post Office features many of the original elements, including the Victorian counter, and the traditional red post box situated in our front courtyard.

Food was very good and a nice selection too. Service was excellent, calm but also in control. We were offered tasters of beer before we chose.

The atmosphere and most of the food were fantastic. The halloumi chips were amazing, as was the lamb burger, eggs benedict, and most of the greek salad- more on that shortly. The pizzas had great flavour and top notch toppings, but the crust was disappointingly...More

Yes, Waitrose Car park - free after 5pm I believe (used to be 6pm). If you for lunch though, you'd be better off in the long stay down Goldsmiths Lane (turning after Waitrose if coming from traffic lights)

Possibly. It is a pub though but definitely serves tea and coffee.
