Excellent quality food at a reasonable price. Wish we had gone here sooner as it's only down the road! Great wine list too. You have to try the beef spare rib.

Loved everything. Next time would share more entrees for variety. Only two of us and the two mains we don’t finish one of them.

Amazing meal paired with a wine we brought for their Raid the Cellar monthly night. One issue, it’s WAY too loud always...nothing to dampen sound on the hard concrete walls. Be aware. Otherwise, always a great experience.

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
