What a lovely Restaurant in a pretty little town, upon walking in we straight away felt the warmth of the fireplace and were received with a smile from our waiter. Our meals were delicious and our desserts even better, we chose the chocolate brownie and the winter fruit crumble and both were amazing. We left feeling very content and would recommend anyone visiting Arrowtown to stop in for a meal and make sure you try a dessert.

Had the post master's package with avocado - extremely delicious and everything was cooked to perfection. My friend had the pancakes with ice cream and she loved it. Overall great breakfast at a cute little town out of Queenstown

Our group of four were celebrating a special family anniversary, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Postmaster's Residence.

The restaurant environment itself is special, located in a lovely old house. There is seating available both inside and outside. We sat outside at a lovely table on the front verandah.

The staff were very attentive and friendly, and helped to make our dining experience as amazing as the food that was presented to us. My husband said that the ribeye steak meal was the best that he had ever had!

We would definitely highly recommend this restaurant to others, and can't wait to go back again.

Fantastic meal out in Arrowtown with my wife.
The Postmasters residence is in a stunning building very typical of Arrowtown.
Really well kept making it feel like a very special setting for a nice meal out.
The food was great and high quality involved within each course.
But the most memorable thing from our evening was the fantastic service and how welcome each member of staff made us feel.

Highly recommend as we had a fantastic evening out follow by a lovely walk around Arrowtown to finish our night.
