Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Managed to get a table on a Saturday night and we were not disappointed. High quality food, great service and a great atmosphere. We wanted a special night and we certainly got it at the postilion.

“Could do better”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

My wife and I pre-booked into Postilion last week,choosing it because it helpfully listed its menu on its website.With a great location,this place will never be short of custom,and there is much to admire,not least the skill of the cooking.Unfortunately,and maybe it was what I chose,I will not be returning.Black pudding and cheese to start was bland to be polite. Lamb,flavoured with cumin and served with apricot,likewise.Blackcurrant sorbet to finish,was a triumph.
The presentation of each dish,was among the best I've seen.The price was bordering on cheap,and the service was attentive but friendly.

“5*”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Luckily, we managed to secure a table without a reservation on a Sunday evening. We were seated immediately, food was excellent and beautifully presented with just the right amount of time between courses. Service was very professional, and the servers were attentive without being intrusive and the prices were very reasonable. We would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

“Special”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is a slightly quirky restaurant with excellent food and service. We managed to get the last table at short notice and opted for the 3 course set menu. Every dish brought to our table was well presented and very enjoyable, with the steaks being particularly good.

Bowness was buzzing on this Saturday night, even though it was freezing cold. Highly recommended!
