An original Georgian pub dating from 1739.
The Blue Posts has stood here since 1739, hidden away on the edge of Soho and Chinatown. We are privileged custodians of this historic tavern where people have been drinking for nearly 300 years.
In 2017 we restored this iconic Grade II Listed public house and added some of our own identity. On the ground floor we brought the main bar back to life by installing antique Georgian windows, wooden flooring, a beautiful pewter bar and an outdoor terrace where you can sit and watch the hustle and bustle go by. We lowered the floor of the beer cellar to create Evelyn’s Table and turned the old store room on the first floor into the beautiful wine bar The Mulwray.
We do not take table reservations at The Blue Posts as we work on a walk-in policy of first-come-first-seated.

History of The Blue Posts
First mentioned in ‘The Illustrated Handbook to London and its Environs’, Rupert Street is named after Prince Rupert of the Rhine (1619-1682), a German-English army officer, admiral, scientist and First Lord of the British Admiralty.
The street and connecting Rupert Court were famed in later years for being a spot for spectacle makers and coppersmiths.
Blue posts used to indicate where one would wait for a sedan chair to take you home.
