We found ourselves in Wallingford on Sunday lunchtime and decided to look for a place to eat. Stumbled across the Old Post Office and were delighted by the superfood salad with chicken and the salmon and avocado salad. A side portion of sweet potato fries and a carafe of water made it pretty much a perfect refuel! We will definitely... More

Good place to meet, with nice terrace at the front, friendly staff , very good coffee, but we came to eat in the evening and the food is very disappointing, the menu is uninspiring and the food was overcooked. This has happened a few times now, so I will only go here now for coffee or a drink

We stopped here for a Sunday lunch and ended up staying all afternoon. The menu was quite standard for a pub but there were a few interesting dishes. We had the calamari and the whitebait for starters which were both delicious and generous portions. For the main I had swordfish with linguine and my partner had lamb and Greek salad... More

Much improved since the last time we were here, it was very busy, good service from attentive staff and a decent menu with a variety of choices of both fresh fish and meat.

I've been here plenty of times and each visit the food is always gorgeous. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, the quality never fails. Try the starters, calamari and the pork bites! Nice for an evening cocktail and drink too.

Ate here twice during our stay in Wallingford and found the food, service, and staff very good indeed. The kitchen is open so you can watch the meals being prepared and the whole operation is very well run. Good menu with excellent selections.

Surprised that this has received comments that it is expensive. Ok, it's not Wetherspoon prices, but it is good value for what is on offer. Well styled with separate dining and a comfortable bar area.

We had two excellent dinners here. Food is fresh and local. Risotto, pasta bolognese, and local fish with fresh vegetables were great. It's both a coffee house, bar, and restaurant with seating in the back and an open kitchen.

Good and not so good; The food is of a good quality and quantity. Prices are very reasonable. Location is right in the centre of Wallingford. Not so good; On arriving no one greets you, so we had to ask if we sat ourselves? We were told to stand by a archway and some one would seat us - it... More
