An original Georgian pub dating from 1739.
Hidden away between Soho and Chinatown, The Blue Posts has existed here since 1739. We are privileged custodians of this historic tavern.
We have brought this iconic Grade II Listed public house back to life. We lowered the beer cellar to create Evelyn’s Table and restored the old store room on the first floor into the beautiful wine bar, The Mulwray.
People have been drinking here for nearly 300 years ..
Craft beers & real ales
This is a freehouse specialising in British craft beers with rotating taps of independently brewed cask ales, alongside lagers and ciders.
In the last decade there has been a blossoming of the most fantastic brewers in the UK, taking off with American hops creating excellent flavour profiles especially in IPAs and pales. Our passionate team at The Blue Posts embrace our freehouse status and enjoy selecting well up-and-coming brewers from John O’Groats to Lands End to have on tap.
This passion follows through to our spirit selection and includes our choice of cocktails
We also have an internationally minded wine list offering a sneak preview of the extensive offering upstairs in The Mulwray. While to eat we offer a short bar menu featuring ‘Toasted milk bread, foraged seaweed butter’, ‘Selection of British cheeses, Japanese pickles’ and ‘Puffed pork scratchings, Sansho pepper’, all created by Luke Selby at Evelyn’s Table
History of The Blue Posts
First mentioned ‘The Illustrated Handbook to London and its Environs’ , the street itself is named after Prince Rupert of the Rhine (1619-1682), German-English army officer, admiral, scientist and First Lord of the British Admiralty.
The street and the connecting Rupert Court were famed in the later years for being a spot for spectacle makers and coppersmiths.
The blue post used to indicate where one would wait for their sedan chair home.
