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 from 9AM for all day breakfast and lunch, coffee and homemade cakes (closed Tuesday/Wednesday) plus Friday and Saturday nights for our exquisite Candlelight Dining experience, showcasing local produce, fabulous wine and beverages and attentive service.
Top notch breakfast, thank you.
Delicious food and great friendly service.
Great food. Love the poached eggs and crispy bacon
Gorgeous food and great service
Excellent service and food
We loved our lunch. Everything was just delightful. Staff, food, surroundings. Thanks so much.
We had an absolutely wonderful evening meal this evening! The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. My Beautiful Mumma from the UK had kindly emailed and phoned prior to our booking to pay as a surprise for us! My parents both commented on how helpful, kind and lovely the lady was whilst communicating over emails and whilst on the phone. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening guys, we can’t wait to visit you again soon! xx
Sunday brunch at Postmasters was fabulous. A warm welcome, perfectly made coffee and delicious eggs Benedict. Service was wonderful & friendly. Enjoyed a 2nd coffee, we could have sat there all day!!
Both times I have been to Postmasters I had a great experience. Staff was super nice. Food is delicious. I highly recommend.
The food was delicious, highly recommend.
Always a great place to dine
Excellent food, service and atmodphere
Was lovely service, super friendly and tentative. Food very tasty. Lovely little place.
Excellent service. Tasty food. Nice selection.
The food never fails to exceed expectations, even after several visits. We've dined elsewhere at greater expense for far lower quality. Highly recommend
Well what a gem of a place! So happy that we decided to have dinner there. Venison was great - perfectly cooked and the salmon was a delight in the plate. Such a quiet, peaceful dining experience as well. The waitress, Rebecca was amazing, adding that extra little bit of magic in a discreet kind of way. Highly recommended 😀😀😀
Our favourite Arrowtown restaurant. The bruschetta was a zingy fresh starter, followed by scrumptious mains of venison and salmon fillets, matched with the magnificent Mt Edward pinot noir. We loved seeing Rebecca again. She even remembered us from last year! Looking forward to returning again.
Best bacon & eggs I've ever had! Great place
My meal was superb! Many others also commented on how good their meals were. The staff were great - they anticipated our every need.
The food was tasty, the service impeccable. Would highly recommend it to visitors to Arrowtown.
Very nice place, lovely staff.
Really enjoyed all of our food. Miss 6 yo smashed the tacos I loved the chowder and as for the cauliflower salad we only wish it was bigger as quite a small portion if that’s your lunch. Loved everything.
We’re nice place with great atmosphere. Tasty breakfast and good smoothie.
We always return for the delicious brunch and atmosphere however this time the service was disappointing with having to wait over an hour for our meal as our order was forgotten despite the restaurant being quiet. We did receive our cup of tea for free but feel the bill could have been further reduced as this caused us to need to reschedule further events in the day.
