About Postmasters


Enjoy a taste of Arrowtown’s rich heritage at the picturesque Postmasters.
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 café, bar and restaurant surrounded by beautiful gardens. 
Diners are warmly welcomed into the cosy interior complete with wood burning stove. Outside the verandah is a stunning spot for al fresco dining or just relaxing with a drink whilst soaking up the sun and watching the world go by! 
The seasonal menu features fresh flavours, top quality local produce, and Central Otago wines which showcase the best of this famous wine-making region. 
Dietary requirements are taken care of with a great choice of gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan options available across the menus.

Open daily from 8.30am for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between!

Great size portions and delicious taste combinations. Love coming here for breakfast. Great coffee too. Children love it too, my 7 year old claimed his pancakes were the best ever.

We’ve had dinner before at Postmasters and have really enjoyed it so we thought we’d give breakfast a go. We were not disappointed - great food and exceptionally good service!

We had a fantastic evening at Postmasters - a great meal on the verandah in the garden area looked after by attentive staff. Set outside the clatter of the usual restaurants and bars it’s atmosphere was quiet and we had a delightful “meal for two” - and it was great value for money! Thank you to the chef and staff for a wonderful evening.

Lovely place to have dinner when in Arrowtown. Superbly presented food accompanied by Central Otago wine choices. Outdoor dining recommended in the gardens on a summer’s evening!

When you know it’s going to be a busy weekend because the gibbston concert is on perhaps get more staff working. Our starters were forgotten and when the mains came out we were asked if we can have the mains first, when we declined were given a dirty look and attitude! Pretty sure the mains were then just reheated and served to us again! This place has gone downhill since the last time I came :(

Great place and nice to sit in or outdoors. Lovely staff, very attentive. Beautiful food with all our dishes full of flavour and very tender meat. We dined with a Coeliac and most of the menu was okay or could be made to suit. Very much appreciated. We ate everything!

The starters prawn with avocado, mussels in cream wine sauces are great. But the portion for main course is a little small. The service staff is great. Overall, the experience is warm and will recommend.
