I popped in here on the way home from a day trip to Reading, having read reports that this pub is now home to the Blue Posts Brewery. It is not. It sells the standard Greene King house beer, badged here as ‘Blue Posts’.

12:00 2nd Blue Posts of the day. Four other drinkers when we entered but got busier whilst we sat there.

Evening. 4th and final West One Blue Posts pub on my crawl. Damned expensive ale at £4.34 pp would preclude a re-visit for sure.

The pub is found in Soho, Central London, W1B 5PX.

Street corner pub in Kingly Street just to the east of Regent Street. Built in 1736 it has a small downstairs bar with a dining room upstairs. Interestingly there are three exterior doors suggesting that at one time the room was subdivided into three. The bar counter and bar back are modern but the exterior wall is an interesting construction of wood and curved and leaded glass. WhatPub promulgates the myth that the blue posts marked the limits of the Soho hunting ground, whereas the sign correctly depicts a sedan chair and two blue posts.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 5 different beers and tried 3 of them.
