We are a microbar in the picturesque village of Ingleton in the North Yorkshire Dales.
We serve a great range of local ales, craft beer, International beers, spirits, wine and quality snacks combined with our own fantastic customer service.
We launched the ‘New’ Old Post Office (OPO) in February 2019 and since then we have put our stamp on the bar. We have created three great spaces, ‘The Gallery’ is to the front of the bar & where it all happens, the ‘Armoury’ is to the rear and has a ‘Speakeasy’ feel with a more intimate atmosphere, and finally ’The Secret Garden’ perfect for soaking up the sun whilst enjoying a refreshing drink in a lovely outdoor space. The OPO is the place to be for a great night out or to unwind after a day on or under the hills.

Despite its size it has a great selection of draft ales, bottles and cans of specialist ales. Lots of unusual Gins and Rums and some top notch speciality snacks.
The welcome was a warm one with one of the owners telling us about the garden at the back and how to order from there if you didn’t want to order inside.
We found a seat in the fab little garden outback and I went in to see what was available, clicking an order on the phone isn’t for me. I decided on a Leffe and ordered my good lady a nice Rum and coke. Inside looked just as welcoming as outside. It’s nicely done out and, again, despite its size, more than comfortable.
It’s always nice to get your beer in the glass that’s made for it, too many pubs have you playing beer-glass roulette these days. Mrs A enjoyed her Rumbullion too.
It was a wee bit chilly so we went inside only for the owner to point out another wee room out the back known as the Armoury for reasons that will become clear when you visit, as a I know you will following this review. Beautifully decorated and very atmospheric it lulled us into another drink. This time I tried the Hoffmeister, probably because I was reminded of the old advert with the Bear (I’m getting on a bit!). My good lady then went to the Chilli and chocolate Rum Served with ginger ale as recommended by the other owner !! Like Christmas is a glass
Both lads who have the place took time out to chat to us and it was nice to find out how they came about to get the place and how it is really working out. It’s good to see effort and gamble pay off. Well done fellas
We also tried the pork scratchings. Another must and great with the beautifully chilled lager
Already planning another couple later in the week before returning home from our short stay in Ingleton.
A great place worthy of its number one ranking
