The food was typical Italian and was reasonable with no adverse comments, however, the staff were very rude. A training session on customer care wouldn't go amiss. Needless to say I will not be returning to this restaurant.

We found this restaurant and were intrigued by their menu. It was a very elegant and atmospheric place. The floor upstairs was full of amazing features including their toilets hidden behind bookcases. Their food was really tasty and very classy. It is a great shame...More

After years of superb dining it is so sad that the Postilion closed summer 2015. However I can understand how family fun is a hard balance to acheive with such demanding work.

Small restaurant with a good wine list and freshly cooked food. Flavours were great and the crime brûlée was awesome. Portion sizes just right and we cleared our plates. Would recommend highly. Great restaurant.

Very surprised to find this excellent restaurant completely closed down. I am a very regular visitor to Bowness with family living nearby and I will miss it.
