Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Postmasters is our favorite restaurant in Arrowtown. It's definitely the nicest restaurant on Buckingham Street with great atmosphere, food and service. It certainly has the best seats in town on the front porch, a great place to relax with amazing food and wine while watching...the world go by. The team will go the extra mile to make you feel welcome. A special thanks to Devyani and Katrina, you have been awesome! Definitely recommend the slow cooked lamb, Vietnamese chicken salad from the mains and the pan fried chorizo and garlic prawns from the entrees, but everything else on the menu is also yummy and worth considering.More

The server was pleasant but a bit slow to respond. We had Asian salad with chicken & noodles- way too many noodles. The lamb was enjoyed but a bit tough. I ordered the falafel but it was way too spicy for me. I was a...bit put off by the paper napkins and bad service.More

An average cute restaurant in Arrowtown. We had a Vietnamese salad and a Falafel salad. Falafels were a bit too soggy. The Vietnamese salad was nice but lacked the Vietnamese flavors. Service was very good and fast.

Disappointing - 1 dish (fish and chips,) simple and 0k. Other dish (fish of the day) truly dire. Service was friendly but food preparation seems to be variable. Not likely to return.

We were booked for 7.30 and told that was the only time they had - also to be advised that the kitchen was closing at 8pm. We left the restaurant at 8.40. We were a party of four and my hubby and myself ordered Roast...Lamb only to be served up two slices of lamb which had obviously been sitting heating - roast lamb that was pressed as in round ?!?!!? $45 per plate with not much else on it. Never again especially after I witnessed a waitress drop a fork and the pick it up and wipe it with a napkin. Overpriced and awful unfortunatelyMore

No customer service here , weren’t allowed in at 10.55am, 5 minutes before it’s 11am opening we ask to sit inside as it was snowing/freezing outside. We were told NO as other people would want to 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️. The correct customer service would’ve been of course...come in out of the cold!!!! Why would it matter if other people came in, isn’t that what hospitality is all about, looking after people.More

Very comfortable setting with indoors or outdoor dining options. We sat outside and the weather was perfect, as was the food, service and the overall experience. We enjoyed the Venison Ragu & the Wild Mushroom Risotto served by Michelle Weeks

Roberto was outstanding. Pleasant polite and attentive. The service was delivered with a smile and happy banter appropriate for the timing. Food was excellent and surpasses our recent experiences at Eichardts and Milbrooke Clubhouse. Our Cauliflour bites were exquisite and chips were perfectly prepared. The...Risotto was al dente and earthy flavoured as one would expect from wild mushrooms. We’ ll be back for more.More

I had the carrot soup with cumin and the fried cauliflower with a dipping sauce. My wife had fish n' chips with pickled vegetables. We shared the Apple Tart. All the food was very good. Devyani was a friendly, upbeat, attentive and helpful server.
