“Fabulous Restaurant.”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Oh! I just love this place. Delicious food, lovely decor and warm, friendly, kind owners. Quite a limited menu, but you know that everything served is fresh and cooked to order. Can be quite difficult getting booked for a weekend meal, as it's so popular. Last time we visited I said that it was the best meal I'd ever had. Going again tomorrow night. Can't wait.

“Fantastic meal for six”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

I ate here with five others and we all had fantastic food. The service was excellent although there was a slight mixup with who was having veg with their steak and who ordered salad as well as the sauces. We rectified this quite easily between ourselves and didn't see it as a huge problem!

The menu at the restaurant is fairly small but has good variety. Starters were excellent; I had fried goats cheese balls in an almond crust and thoroughly enjoyed. As for mains... three of us had sirloin steak, all of which were cooked to perfection alongside epic chips and sweet potato fries. The chicken pie, seabass and crab cakes also went down well.

All the staff at the bistro were extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend visiting here if you have a chance!!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We had an excellent meal at the Old Post Office to celebrate my birthday. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked in. Richard made recommendations for food and wine to help our choices. Food was delicious and beautifully cooked and presented. Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We weren't rushed at all and were told that we had our table for the whole evening. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and one we will repeat again.

Reviewed February 9, 2014

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening at the Bistro. Service is always 5 star and the food is just divine! We couldn't fault it! The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming, you really feel relaxed and comfortable and as if you are among friends. We would highly recommend the Bistro and will most definitely be going back!

“Fabulous New Years Eve”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We booked this restaurant with 4 of our friends for New Years eve and had a fabulous night out. We were immediately welcomed in, shown to our table and felt comfortable straight away. The owner was attentive and worked very hard to make sure all his guests were looked after all evening. He was knowledgable about the food and drinks, and while it was a set menu we all enjoyed every course and all his wines. It was lovely to meet his wife and assistant chef at the end of the meal to tell them how much we had enjoyed their food. The bistro is only small but is full of charm, was lovely and cosy and also very dog friendly (there was even a dog in there enjoying his new years eve with his owners) which was lovely. We didn't stay here but would not hesitate to in future if we wanted a b&b and will definitely go for another meal next time we are in Warkworth which we love. Thank you again for a wonderful meal.
