Description: Step back in time and enjoy a slice of Arrowtown’s rich heritage. 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 restaurant surrounded by beautiful gardens. Enjoy the beauty of each season at Postmasters, whether it's soaking up the sun whilst sitting out on the verandah with a refreshing drink or inside by the open fires with a homemade mulled wine in the colder months. The seasonal menu features fresh flavours, top quality local produce, and Central Otago wines which showcase the best of this famous wine-making region. Plenty of gluten-free and vegetarian options available as well as a dedicated kids’ menu.Open daily for breakfast, morning & afternoon tea, lunch and dinner.

It was a pleasant place to sit and the service was great. However, the food came in small serves. DO NOT GET THE VENISON BURGER! The burger tasted sour and had questionable toppings. The rest of my meal was delicious and this is a great restaurant for some people but not me.

Stopped by here a couple of times during our week in Arrowtown, just for morning tea and have to say the coffee and scones were just beautiful. My brother and his wife had tea and scones and they were just wrapped that they were given china cups and saucers! Great ambience and friendly staff, next time we must try a meal.

Whilst in Arrowtown we called into the Postmasters Residence for a coffee and scones. Biggest scones we have ever had with a choice of beautiful jams.

Thoroughly enjoyed it! Very friendly staff too!

Food was good but service was terrible - we waited for over an hour for food and the staff were not apologetic at all about the long wait. Each time we asked for service, we were dismissed that other tables were waiting as well or given some other excuse. Would have appreciated if they gave some indication of how long the food will take - especially when most customers are tourists with an itinerary ahead of them.
