The Old Post Office
Reviewed by Lucy Hawkins
The Old Post Office pub restaurant in Wallingford is from the outside what looks like a converted Post Office (surprisingly) with plenty of seating outside for the summer months and an attractive front. Inside its very stylish with wooden ceiling beams and an open kitchen at the far end. The bar on the left is complemented by comfy sofas and a fireplace to relax by. We were greeted by the pleasant waiting staff and after having a quick drink at the bar, we went to our table.
We were attended to well and promptly and our food was mainly very nice. It arrived quickly and piping hot. I ordered Stuffed Mushrooms for my starter and Chicken Cacciatore for my main. Simon had the Gamberoni (King Prawns) and Beef Medallions stuffed with Blue Cheese and Parma Ham. Our meal portions were very generous and to be honest we couldn’t finish our main meals. Simon’s beef was well cooked but was way too salty with all the Blue Cheese and Parma Ham.
It was clearly a busy service on Friday afternoon, the staff were all coping well but whilst the service we received was faultless, we were aware of at least 3 diners around us who had issues. For example a main meal arrived at the same time as the starter. A table of 4 had to flag down a waitress for their starter of salad bread and olives. And one couple ordered drinks but they were wrong twice.
