Have always found the Red Post a nice place to stop on frequent trips between Nelson an Christchurch via the Lewis Pass. Nice atmosphere and good service.

I regularly frequent this charming old house; went in a couple of days ago and felt like a pot of earl grey tea, strong.
Got a flowery concoction that I was told
Is "French Earl Grey".I didn't like it and
Instead ordered a coffee.When i suggested to the two guys at the counter that they should let customers know that this Earl Grey was different the only reaction was blank indifference;no "sorry sir i'll
make a pot of english breakfast".Nothing
This is a very successful busy cafe but I feel differently about the place now.They just don't seem to give a toss for the customer.All would have been forgiven for some teaspoons of tea and some hotwater!!!

The food is OK but the decor and surroundings really need improving. It's not changed since were there more than a year ago with very old worn out carpet and chairs upholstered in fabric that either needs replacing or really good cleaning at the least. It used to be a favourite place of our and the garden was always lovely to sit in but this too has gone downhill and needs TLC. The loose leaf tea was very nice though, much better than a mere teabag being tossed into a pot as some cafes do.

A traffic diversion around SH1 landed us in Culverden. Our bad luck to arrive at the same time as a bus group of elderly but the staff remained friendly and helpful throughout. Good selection of cabinet food (plus a cooked menu), although I wondered that a tiny florentine was $4 and a large afghan or belgium biscuit $4.70. The small bite sweets should have been much cheaper? Another reviewer mentioned the cute sayings on the beams - good fun, but a complete lack of apostrophes. If only I was taller!

Although we pass through Culverden a few times a year, we'd never stopped for coffee. The Red Post was great and we loved the sayings on the beams.
