It was a Wednesday so we expected it would go smoothly. But food was not so good given the prices charged and one plate in particular was so overcooked that it was inedible. Staff were a bit short tempered when asked for water. Drinks are...More

A family friendly and reasonably priced restaurant and bar makes this place deservedly popular. As families leave couples and groups take over. Food was served quickly and quite good for the price. House wine was quite acceptable and there was a good choice of beers....More

My friends like to meet up at this pub as the food is generally good. Worth a visit even just for a drink.

The Post Office hotel is warm when it is cold outside. The pub concentrates on the two pub staples -- cold beer and hot food. The pub is on the corner of Reynard Street and Sydney Road. The pub is not at all trendy, one...More

Description
Coburg's Post Office Hotel mixes the old with the new. A renovation in 2010 restored much of the old girl's original art deco features, breathing new life into the hotel. The team behind the bar provide an old fashioned warmth and hospitality and, with a background in music, ensure classic tunes are always part of the equation, from rocking live bands to a soundtrack of soul, rock and country vinyl. Take in the live music in the spacious front bar on Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings, while on Sundays bring the family for a relaxed weekly-changing winter roast or summer barbecue while checking out the afternoon band. Next door to the pub, at 229 Sydney Road, is the POH's newest addition, the Dining Hall. The large space has been given a modern makeover with exposed brick walls, fire place, hanging pendant lights and recycled timber tables. There's al fresco seating on the back deck, several banquet tables perfect for groups, plus intimate booths with leather banquettes.
