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.

The service was excellent and the wait staff were very helpful. Loved the fact the elderflower mojito was made with homemade elderflower cordial. No waiting and the coconut and tamarind curry didn’t disappoint with the garlic crispy flatbread being amazing. A great night in front of the fire!

We thought it was a wonderful venue and the staff were truly great. We felt very special the whole evening. It was a double birthday treat and both of us felt very blessed by our outing to Postmasters. The food was delicious and we would love to return one day. Thank you postmasters.

A fantastic venue for a Winters sunny day sitting on the terrace in the sun, with the opportunity to move inside to the warmth of the fireplace had we opted for the shift. Service was exceptional.

Great food value food and very welcoming staff, happy to confirm what's ok for people with food allergies which is always reassuring. A bit more bread with the breads and dips is the only thing I'd want different.

Excellent! The only thing I would change is to make the special delivery breakfast a little bit bigger in size to suit a typical Irish breakfast size! Otherwise fantastic with excellent staff! We love coming here and always recommend to our friends and customers!! Keep up the good work
