So we both ordered the Full Irish as I’d seen a photo of it and when our breakfast was served, we weren’t disappointed- it was scrumptious. The staff were friendly and the coffee was good

How to make simple food special. The Posthouse appears to know the secret. Sandwiches made special with delicious plentiful content in fresh bread and extremely well priced. Please keep it up. On this one performance you won over two more customers.

This was recommended to me by a local, and the locals certainly seem to know all about it. Beautiful, fresh fare for lunch, served promptly and with a smile. What more could you want. I wish they had a branch in every village/town.
