About Postmasters


Enjoy a taste of Arrowtown’s rich heritage at the picturesque Postmasters.

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.

We dined at Postmasters this evening and everything was amazing. The atmosphere was great, nice candlelight dinner and excellent service. Great vegan options, the falafel starter was delicious and a huge portion. The soup was equally tasty, as was the huge feast of curry we had for mains. Then to top it off, warm winter crumble and chocolate tart both with ice cream! Would definitely recommend and definitely go back!

We are Queenstown locals. Coming into the restaurant it was super warm with the fire going. What we had to eat.... Carrot and ginger soup was yum. Squid cooked perfectly, blue cod exquisite. Service from both waitresses, friendly and attentive. Loved the candle light only for the dining, was really cool.

Was very disappointed that the menu on First Table was not the same as in the restaurant. Food was blah and not enough breakfast options. Waitress told me they have never had eggs benedicts, well maybe then take it out of the sample menu..

Very welcoming and friendly staff. The Hot chocolate was decadent and our food was prepared well. My favourite thing had to be the use of coconut cream and a hint of lemon in my creamy mushrooms. Also there is lots of quirky things inside to look at. Will be back.

After reading reviews I thought Postmasters would be a good choice to take my adult son out for lunch. It was a big disappointment. His Ramen was luke warm at best with a refridgerated egg still cold in middle. My seafood chowder was gluey in texture (as in flour not cooked out) with broken up seafood mix topped with 3 not so fresh mussels in the shell. I must say the staff were very friendly and welcoming though but we were there for the food . Big disappointment.

The booking On Line was easy and convenient . The staff welcomed us cheerfully on arrival and allowed us to sit outside for a drink and starters . We then moved inside as it became chilly once the sun dropped . The food choice is great so too the drinks options . The food was excellent . All up en enjoyable evening meal .

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.

This was honestly a most enjoyable dinner. Staff fantastic and meal surpassed my expectations. Highly recommend the slow cooked lamb! My husband is vegan and was accommodated without any fuss. Definitely be back!
