About The Postman's Leg

Long before we were all on the dog and bone, news only got as far as the Postman would roam. And early Glenfield was no exception – with a local Postman who truly made his mark on this route. An amputee on an account of a timber saw milling tragedy, he was the type who refused to let life’s mishaps put him on the back foot. Fashioning a footless harness for his horse he ran letters between Birkenhead and Dairyflat and not a single dog nipping at his ankle flustered him in all of 16 years. So before the last leg of your journey home take a load off and enjoy our food and drinks – what ever you choose we know you can’t put a foot wrong. Come enjoy the best address in town.

We are not ones to moan about anything as we know how hard it is working in customer service even more with food... I order a medium rare 300g steak - the steak which was cut in half was NOT 300g so that was one problem next, I order medium rare and I got well done. when I ask the lady, who served us if this was medium rare, she turned around and pretty much said I was wrong that I had said well done (Which was a lie as the 5 people just around me heard me say medium rare.) we then had someone come up to tell us that we were wrong and by then I was over it. We then have another lady come up so as you can image, I was angry. I didn’t do anything, and I am normal the one to sit there and just take what I have been given… it would have taken 5 mins for them to cook another steak in the same about of time they where telling us how wrong I was I would have got a medium rare steak.

Booked a table and arrived to be told it was a 1 1/2 hr wait for food. There were 8 seats at the table I booked for 16 The garden was sunny and the kids has a good play. We stayed for 1 drink only. You missed out on 16 covers of food +kids meals due to inability to keep the wait time down. Thoroughly disappointed. Perhaps you could prioritise orders from booked tables- other wise there is no point in booking. We should have gone elsewhere

Thanks for hosting Raukura Hockey 1st XI as a pitstop on the journey up to Whangarei. Even on a busy Father's Day, they got to have Rib buster, some wings and a few drinks before departing again. Thanks to Kirsten, Scott and Hamish and all the hardworking posties on duty

I was very disappointed with our visit today. We had come in for a lovely Father's Day lunch but we got the complete the opposite. I have 3 young children 5,3 and 1 - we had to wait almost 2 hours for lunch today. We came in at 1pm and by the time all our food arrived it was almost 3pm. I realise it was a busy day but this should have been planned for. When we finally got our food our children were starving and non of us were in the mood to eat or sit there any longer. It would have been nice to have been warned that the wait time for food would be over an hour when I booked it - this day comes every year so the staff would have known how busy it gets. I would have then booked else where.

Overall we had a great experience, food was great and it was child friendly so it kept our daughter entretenido and they enjoy playing... we had to ask them to come and eat so we could eat. All the staff were extremely friendly and provide a good service except for one person .... I asked her for another chair as it had bird poo on it she wiped some on it and gave me a wet chair she wasn’t friendly and actually ddnt want to give me another chair so I got one myself from the back of the deck... she ignored us for most of the afternoon and just wasn’t friendly at all.... but to be fair the rest of the staff was extremely friendly and took great care of us that I will come back. Maybe she just had a bad day 🤷‍♀️

The Lamb shank was not good at all and neither was the mash potato was 1 of the worst! Mash tasted bland with no butter no salt! not cooked cabbage with again no seasoning and microwaved shank dumped in packet gravy sauce! Tried to explain this to the wait staff only to be told 'other patrons love this meal' not very good to be told that what we were saying wasn't good feedback! I have been here before and it was amazing. The Ribs had no flavor and tasted like nothing with Hoisin Sauce from a jar on top of the ribs !! Did not like the food one bit!!!!!! i have been a chef for 15 years and this was bad, no seasoning and no love in the food

We have always enjoyed coming to The Postman's Leg, but I'm afraid to say the service on Sunday was dreadful. The waitress gave us the impression that she really did not want to be there and that we were a terrible inconvenience for her. Our waitress did not wear a name badge, or bother introducing herself. No menu's were brought out. Water was scarce, 1 bottle per table of 12, then we had to request more water from the bar ourselves several times. Several guests (including myself) were not offered drinks the entire time, again having to go directly to the bar. She honestly made us feel bad for bringing a large group out. Notably, the young male waiter who first greeted us when we arrived, and the bar staff, were wonderfully friendly and helpful. The food was yummy as always and the live music was great thanks.

Hi Rachel, Thank you for your feedback. Very unfortunate to hear what you have to say about the big slabs when all your guests that we hosts have provided great feedback on the food and pizza's on the day. We apologize if it did not meet your own expectations but we are glad we we're able to accommodate your last minute requests and host you and your guests. Should you change your mind about visiting us again, we would gladly like to have you back. Regards, The Postman's Leg Team.

You let us down by not looking at internet bookings made earlier in the day...when we arrived our vooking was not at the welcome desk! Noise was prohibitive to much conversation. A simple and well-known in other restaurants and pubs, the requested squash and lemonade drink was unknown to bar staff who delivered a lemonade with a slice of lemon in it! However the roast lamb special was a big meal, very tasty and quickly delivered considering the full house.
