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.

This was a family get together and your kids area certainly works well so kids can run off some energy before dinner. Your menu caters for all ages and generous in size. Surprised when paying the bills for 16 as was good valve. Will certainly return but not with all 16 again.

It was mothers day so it was hectic and the weather was average so it added to the chaos inside. The team did well to hold it together.

I was very pleased that the chef was able to swap the chips for the seasonal veges, & also cook them in olive oil & not butter I was disappointed though that my 2nd piece of fish was he size of a fish nugget . I had the chocolate mousse cake it was devine beyond yum.. Though & this isn't a criticism but there could have been something else to cut through the sweet like a berry couli.

Hi What Lovely Staff You Have, we waited almost two hours for our meals and was sad to see that people who ordered after us had ate their meals, got up and left. before we even started it wasn't a good experience in that sense. the fact it was a public holiday is no excuse Management should be prepared for a higher level of persons wanting to eat there and we had booked not just wondered in. I'm Sorry but bad Management and it left us not even wanting to eat the meals once they arrived, bought a lot of it home.Yeah not good, but again Lovely Staff if it wasn't for their interaction we would have got up and left.

Tough to comment on an Easter Sunday, it was pretty empty. Staff were courteous and friendly, food was good, so was the beer and wine. We (6A 3K) had a good evening out.

Hi Charles, Yes is quite tough on days like Good Friday and Easter Sunday especially with the law around the sale and supply of alcohol. But we thank you for your understanding and glad you had a great time while visiting us. We hope to see you again soon.

We had great food, but was let down with he service. It took almost 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive. Food was great, with exception to the garlic bread side order for the chicken Schnitzel which was inedible. We also ordered a Postmans platter, which lacked the Jalapeño poppers and instead was substituted for prawn sticks. We were not told why until we eventually found someone who advised that they had runout of the poppers ! If you had told me before hand I would not have ordered them. No body came round to ask if the door was OK or to see if we needed additional drinks.

Our family has been in several times to your restaurant, last night was not as good as usual but we like it because it is spacious and classy, with casual and sporty right next door if someone wants to watch the Warriors beat anyone in League. We will be back in May with a booking of 15-20.

Great time and looking forward to coming in again soon. The service was a bit slow and unfortunately we were sat in place where smoke from your neighbours was coming through. As I have a young family (as this was declared when I booked) this was not ideal.

Had an enjoyable evening, food was nice but found it a little expensive for what it was. Great playground for kids. Can I suggest that you bring out kids meals before adults. Bit mean to make hungry kids wait while the adults have their dinner or dessert. Plus it took three hours for dinner and dessert and wait to be served in between, which was a long time when you have young kids. Thankfully they were entertained by the playground.

Most of the food was great but the mashed potato served with the pot pie was terrible. Service was a bit slow but very friendly and helpful staff.
