"Excellent Value for Money"
One night stay, excellent central location which happened to be just a few hundred yard from the venue I was going to for a gig. The room was very spacious and well equipped if a little tired looking. The window did not close fully so as to shut out the sound noisy revellers but overall this wasn't too much of a problem as it didn't go on too long. Didn't spend any time in the pub itself other than for breakfast the next morning. Was offered a free ticket to comedy event on the night I stayed. Read less
Likes:
The friendly welcome & helpfulness of the staff on my arrival. Both room and en suite very spacious which was great and the breakfast was fulsome, filling and enjoyable. Excellent location.
Dislikes:
The room and en-suite were a bit on the cool side so a bit more heat would have been nice especially first thing in the morning. Also room was somewhat draughty due to the non closing window.

We didn't understand that we had to hand in our room key before leaving for the day in order to get the room cleaned. The evenings were noisy with noise coming from the pub below.

"Great location, clean rooms, fantastic breakfast, friendly staff"
We first stayed at The Old Postoffice 5 years ago when we visited the flower show. We were that impressed we have stayed every year since. The location is perfect for shopping, restaurants and local real ale pubs. The rooms are very clean and adequate. Breakfast is very good and the evening menu is well priced, especially if you like s nice steak. The staff make you feel very welcome. Friday night is music night with live bands on. Thanks guys for everything and see you again next year. Read less

The Old Post Office dates from the 16th Century and is the last of 5 public houses that were licensed in Milk Street. The others were The Angel, The Beehive, The Mug House and The Sun Tavern. The Old Post Office has kept the same name throughout it's history. The has nothing to do with The Royal Mail, but refers to a posting house horse-drawn coaches and as late as 1900 there was stabling for thirteen horses. Wagons to Lyth Hill, Condover, Ryton and Wheathall would depart the inn on Wednesdays and Saturdays of each week.
