Great find in a lovely village setting a short stroll from a spectacular river. Friendly and SAFE service and good quality limited menu although they had sold out of chicken by 13:00!’ Food tasty. Busy with locals which is a good sign. Toilets and adjacent...PO shop. ExcellentMore

My elderly mother and I have lunch almost every week in the lovely Posting Pot. We love the food, the coffee, the decor and best of all the wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. My mother is unable to walk very far so if I can't...park directly outside I stop nearby and take her in to our table, sit her down and then go and park my car. The staff are familiar with our situation, bring water to the table and wait for me to come back whilst making sure that my mother is comfortable. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the staff here for their support and brilliant service. I only wish I could give them 10 stars!!More

We were staying at the Crown Hotel but fancied a little walk before breakfast. This did amazing coffee and the cheesy scrambled egg with bacon was to die for.

Thank you for your review, it’s really appreciated. We love it that our scones sell out fast 😊 it then allows customers to choose one of our delicious cakes. Hope you visit soon and hope there is a scone left for you 😉 Kind regards...More

This is a very well run cafe, serving excellent food. It has few covers and a not too extensive menu, which means what they do, they do well. We noted there is a For Sale sign on the building, so would be unsure of the...business's future. Just an enjoyable experience.More

My family and I stopped in at the Posting Pot for lunch while visiting Wetheral. We didn't have particularly high expectations but were pleasantly surprised, both by the quality and range of food on offer, and by the friendliness of the staff. Well worth a...visit if you're passing through this beautiful village.More
