Trust the Chef menu was a choice we did not regret, nice range of flavors and generous dishes. Standouts are the Prawns and Pumpkin. Nice selection of craft beers and NA house soda.

Lovely place to relax & eat. Started with cocktails at the above bar, was escorted downstairs to the restaurant for our booking. Our tab was transferred too so we didn’t have to worry about paying until the end of the night. Service was beautiful, staff had the right amount of attentiveness. Food was absolutely delicious as was the accompanying wine. Partner & I used this as a first date since becoming parents. It was very special. Would love to come back again.

I absolutely love this place! Beautiful old heritage post office location, stylishly fitted out. The food is excellent as is the wine list (with some impressive gin choices if your into it). OnePennyRed is my new local/neighbourhood favourite!!

It's closer to home than the Four In Hand in Paddington , so will come here more often. Excellent experience

Wonderful food, great service and loud atmosphere which suited us perfectly. Stand out dishes were the pork belly salad and slow cooked beef ribs.

About One Penny Red

Spudtacular. Forget the #healthyeating instagram posts when you come to One Penny Red, because at this heritage listed site (once a former post office) it is all about the spuds. And boy are they spectacular. Leave your paleo, atkins, dukan, no carb and raw food diets at the door and get stuck into a bowl of roughed up, crunchy, salty and spicy deep fried potatoes...we still have dreams about them. These tatties have been treated with some serious TLC by chef R J Lines who boils, drains, bashes and crisps the spuds until they are golden like a fiery sun. But it’s the finishing touch of peppery, fennel and cumin spiced salt dusted on top that takes these babies to the next level. Okay, enough about the spuds, there are other reasons to check out this Summer Hill restaurant. The downstairs restaurant offers an array of Mediterranean driven share dishes while the upstairs bar is home to a casual, more snack menu - both equally as delicious. One Penny Red doesn’t do fancy or fussy food, instead, generous, earthy, comfort food in a companionable, easy-going, well-run sort of place, perfect for both big nights out or quick dinners with friends. So while traditional mail delivery as we know it is dying, One Penny Red has brought new life and energy into the handsome post office building - it’s just a service of a different kind, one that we don’t expect to die out. The spuds alone will keep the people coming back. That’s spudtacular. Best dish: Crispy, spiced salt potatoes
