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.
Back in 2017 we restored this iconic Grade II Listed public house but with some of our own identity. We lowered 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. On the ground floor we brought back to life the public house by reinstalling Georgian antique windows, wooden flooring, a beautiful pewter bar and added an outdoor terrace so you can watch the hustle and bustle go by.
People have been drinking here for nearly 300 years ..
We do not take table reservations at The Blue Posts as we work on a walk policy of first-come-first-seated.

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.
