Lovely bar and restaurant. Efficient friendly staff with an excellent selection of ales. Décor good and the restaurant is family friendly. In the evening the bar becomes busy and has a good atmosphere.

Every experience I've had of eating here, which has been at least 6-7 times has been a train smash. I ate here for a friends 40th tonight... Long story short my food did not arrive in a reasonable time period (25 minutes after all our orders were delivered). Then, some dude brought me 4 ravioli and then six more about... More

Had another very pleasant stay at The Old Post Office in one of the en suite rooms set in the garden of the house. Seemed a bit odd at first sight but very comfy. Great breakfast and very attentive staff. Don't know what else they do. Looking forward to my visit next year already.

Modern conversion of a former Post Office. Tables are nice and spaced apart and you can hear yourself think but it's a bit like eating in a school canteen as the space is quite large. Menu was varied and not fussy so definitely something for everyone. Burgers were great as were the Pork Bite nibbles and pasta dishes. Tip: the... More

We took our guest to the OPO on New Year's Day. We were shown to our table and then after a ten minute wait we had to signal the manager to take our order for a drink. He took our food order at the same time, which we were relieved about as we had already sussed that they were way... More

Popped in for drinks a couple of times over the weekend. Good choice of drinks (discovered rhubarb gin) and different seating areas. Menu looked nice but a little pricey.

We stopped here for a light lunch whilst driving home from visiting family for Christmas day. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and attentive. The food was delicious, we had the sourdough bread and oil, olives and a pasta dish to share, and a portion of chips. We thoroughly enjoyed all of it. The place is big and airy... More

I live nearby and have visited the OPO many times over the past years. My experiences there have all varied in quality, and my opinion changes quite frequently. But I have learnt one thing - the OPO is alright as long as it is not busy. The most recent time I went was early December 2016, and it was a... More

Thank you for your comments; we do try to make sure that service standards are linear despite the footfall on any given day; sometimes this can be affected by staff absences, but really shouldn't affect our guests. Please do let us know in future when we are getting things wrong as we can only make them better through our guests'... More

We're often in the area and hadn't been to OPO for a while so dropped by on a Saturday late afternoon, around 5.30pm. The restaurant was 80% empty however we were refused a table as they were fully booked. The online booking tool however would still let you happily book a table online for whatever time that evening (that would... More

Had the scotch eggs, which were divine and the cottage pie, which was exceptional - want to go again very soon and repeat exactly the same meal!! Staff were attentive and efficient. A little noisy inside, but the food made up for that! Highly recommend.
