When I was organising our Ridgeway Walk, I used TripAdvisor to find a good restaurant near our B&B stop in Wallingford. I actually made a mistake, as I thought the reservation was earlier than it was, but they were very helpful and took us in early, despite being very busy. I was so relieved, as we had walked far enough... More

My favourite part of the refurb is the ramp at the side for wheelchairs and buggies. Makes life so much easier. Food is always good and staff are great even when we are a group with multiple buggies. Have to mention Will and Lorraine who are always so welcoming and friendly.

I used to love going to the OPO but in the last month or so it's gone a little down hill. The service is always really good so no complaint there but when I order a halloumi & Portobello mushroom burger I kind of expect to get a portobello mushroom. This used to be the case but the last 2... More

Visited the OPO last night to celebrate my wife's birthday. Absolutely superb. This restaurant is well laid out and even when busy it doesn't feel to cramped - perfect ambience. The attention from waiting staff was exceptional and the food was some of the best I have eaten. My wife had steak and she said it was cooked to perfection... More

First, the good: The food was well cooked, very tasty and different from the usual Italian fair you see in so many chains. The whole Burrata Mozarella on top of the bruschetta was unusual but deliciously creamy. The calamari starter was crisp and tender but too small for the £7 cost (4 rings - come on!). The Banoffee Sundae was... More

We have visited the Old Post Office on several occasions and the quality of the food can vary from excellent to not so good, I think it really depends on which chef is working! The ambiance of the place is lovely maintaining the old building with the modern decor. The place can get very busy at times especially on a... More

Sunday roasted were thoroughly enjoyed and our friends had pizzas which they demolished. The banoffee sundae was a cracking dessert as well. Always excited to come here for either a casual drink or a meal.

My son and husband had pizza and I had the beef fillet which was perfectly cooked, quality meat, but unfortunately there was no side (salad or potatoes)... Also the waiting stuff were distant, slow and were walking around looking busy without really doing anything...
