orderered fish and chips, the fish was dripping oil and the batter was not at all crispy. It smelt of stale cooking oil and tasted very bitter, only had one mouthful. Give them there due I was not charged, staff are friendly, its ashamed about the food

We met friends here for lunch recently. As we were taken to our table the waitress warned us of noise from building works being done - no one had mentioned this when we booked.... It was certainly noisy. Service was alsovery slow, and the food cool and disappointing, certainly not up to the standard of the prices.

Good for a business lunch as the service was good and it's a beautiful dining room. Food was as expected and nothing more really. I had a decent burger, my colleague was a little underwhelmed by the Caesar salad. All in all no complaints and would return.

Having just moved to Wallingford we invited friends over to try the food at The Old Post Office. I reserved a table, thankfully i did as it was a busy Friday night. We all had starters (The Bruschetta was huge) and then had varying mains. The food was freshly prepared and to a decent quality. The bill was very reasonable... More

Decided to visit the OPO for Sunday Lunch and were lucky to get a table. Fantastic food and service. I had the pork belly which was really delicious and just fell apart it also came with crispy crackling. My partner had the roast beef which he really enjoyed. Generous servings and really top quality food. This is also a fantastic... More

After a shopping spell in Waitrose we decided to see if we could have lunch in the Old Post Office. This was not the first time that we'd been but the last visit was many years ago and the management has changed. The restaurant was very busy and the atmosphere was good. We chose Prawn Linguini which we use as... More

Three of us called in here for lunch on spec and were pleasantly surprised, both with the atmosphere and with the food. The building is an impressive space with both soft seating areas and dining areas. There was a good choice of lighter lunches and these were all freshly prepared and beautifully presented, not to mention tasting fantastic! Service was... More

The atmosphere of the old post office is OK, it is not hugely child friendly and the open space makes it very hard for people to hear each other. The drinks selection is good and the sharing platters would be the best bit about the food.

It was okay - very busy and the acoustic level made hearing difficult - we had to wait ages and then send food back as it as cold - Don't think we would go back as expensive for what you got

Excellent as coffee bar, pub or restaurant - one of the very few places that knows how to combine all three
