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!
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.
Loved it. Have eaten here before but last night was exceptional.
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 .
Many thanks to Diva, Sarah and Alex who delivered exceptional service this evening. The food was wonderful, but the hospitality was exquisite. Thank you all for a lovely evening!
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.
The wait for food seemed to be long not just for us, but the staff said thank you for being patient and sorry for the delay. We enjoyed our evening more because of the lovely friendly wait staff, you have a great team thank you for a lovely evening.
Loved our experience, both food and being able to sit outside
Fantastic wait staff
Absolutely outstanding. A+++
Great service-prompt & courteous. Food delicious - would definitely go back
Incredible food, atmosphere and fun staff!
We had a lovely breakfast and would happily come back again. Thanks
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!
Such a great time. They were so accommodating with gluten free and vegan options. The atmosphere is divine and I would absolutely go back again.
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!
Wonderful setting. Loved our breakfast here. Thank you. Food was tasty and the staff are very friendly. Great spot for breakfast.
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 :(
Thanks for a lovely night
Delicious food, relaxing atmosphere, great table location and excellent service, special thank you to Nico (and other staff on that night) for the extra thoughtful child friendly service.
Our family of four had a fantastic dinner at Postmasters. The kids and adults are well looked after and the food is fantastic. Will be back.
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!
Lovely atmosphere, tasty fresh food and attentive service.
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.
