These guys are super friendly, especially with kids. The only thing that let me down was "The English" breakfast, the sausages were boiled and not put under the grill after boiling to make tan the skin for texture and make them taste nicer. The breakfast comes with two slices of oval bread, three juicy vine tomatoes, two rashes of bacon,... More

We stopped in for breakfast after a friends 40th having staying in the town. The menu choice was so enticing we ending up selecting 4 breakfasts to share. All were delightful, service was excellent and the value for money was A1. Highly recommended

The Old Post Office has a warm welcoming atmosphere. The service is very good - especially in the restaurant. But the food - without a doubt - is fabulous. Although The 'OPO' is at the higher end of the price range for this area, the quality of the food, service & surroundings reflects the price.

Good food and nice atmosphere in a great setting. However the waitress wasn't very knowledgable on much and had to keep referring to other staff, this also happened with some other tables but I appreciate she may be new. Would come again my only complaint would be the spicy hummus on the child's menu. My daughter was quite distraught after... More

Ate here on a Monday lunch time. The Old Post Office has a nice relaxed atmosphere and is pleasantly decorated. My mum had the chicken burger and I had the sweet potato mash with poached eggs and bacon. Mum's burger looked good and was tasty, my dish was very good but could have been more seasoned. There was a delay... More

The service was friendly and easy going. Ordering slightly off-menu was not a problem and the my meal of roast pork belly was absolutely delicious. I particularly liked the portion size, with an emphasis on quality over quantity. The atmosphere on a Sunday night was casual and relaxed, with quite a number of families with young children around.

This restaurant is in a lovely old historic post office building as the name suggests. It has a high beamed ceiling and lovely modern seating with a few tables outside if desired. The staff are attentive, the menu has many choices of all kinds and, for those who enjoy a roast, they have a basket full of enormous Yorkshire puddings... More

We visited the Old Post Office recently on a Sunday evening as we heard it was under new management and our previous visits had been disappointing so thought we'd see if it had improved. Unfortunately, it seems to have gone further down hill :( They weren't very busy but the service we received you would have though otherwise. We ordered... More

I am sorry to hear that your experience falls short of the high expectations we are proud of. We can confirm that the allergen menu states dairy for the roast dinners only because of the Yorkshire Pudding, which our kitchen staff are aware of and could have easily excluded from your order. Following your feedback we will look at the... More
