Description: Step back in time and enjoy a slice of Arrowtown’s rich heritage. The carefully preserved historic cottage, once home to the town’s postmasters, has been a main street feature since the 1860s and is now a popular restaurant surrounded by beautiful gardens. Enjoy the beauty of each season at Postmasters, whether it's soaking up the sun whilst sitting out on the verandah with a refreshing drink or inside by the open fires with a homemade mulled wine in the colder months. The seasonal menu features fresh flavours, top quality local produce, and Central Otago wines which showcase the best of this famous wine-making region. Plenty of gluten-free and vegetarian options available as well as a dedicated kids’ menu.Open daily for breakfast, morning & afternoon tea, lunch and dinner.

Arrowtown is an old small town. The Post Office becomes a restaurant called Postmaster's. The ambient is cozy, old style, the food is nice. Especially the Green Lipped Mussels. Best I ever eat mussels.

Totally enjoyed sitting on the front porch with the snow around us eating fresh scones and drinking beautiful hot lemon, honey & ginger drink.

We ate here for lunch. We ate mushroom pasta, chicken hotpot and salmon on salad. The winter fruit crumble was to die for! We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and service was fabulous. My first ever review I felt compelled to write! Bravo

It was a terrible wet day when we popped in here for breakfast. The fire was roaring hot, very pleasant. Friendly, knowledgable service -very tasty breakfast menu featuring some delicious local ingredients. Awesome value, highly recommended.
