Just how many pubs named ‘The Blue Posts’ are there in London? We ask because it seems that every time we stumble on a charming traditional pub in the centre of town it seems to carry that name. And what’s more, we’re yet to see a single blue post. Even a very dark navy would do, but no, not even that. Still, at least they do all seem to have traditional charm in common.

This particular Blue Posts is the Fitzrovia outpost and as stated, upon stumbling on it we are immediately seduced by its trad-chic aesthetics. Wooden dividing beams, a rich plum-red ceiling that looks like one big wax seal and a dartboard to boot. You don’t get many dartboards in the West End these days and on a busy Friday night there’s a queue to get behind the oche and ‘chuck some arrows’. Back in the day people would call us ‘All ‘The Power’ In London’ due to our darts prowess. These days, not so much, so we decide to steer clear.

Like a fair few of Fitzrovia’s pubs, the Blue Posts on Newman Street is a Samuel Smith’s venue. So, cheap Alpine Lager, premium wheat beer and Taddy Porter will keep round costs low. This is primarily an after-work pub so expect to find a good atmosphere out on the pavement outside - when the weather allows – and a good-natured boisterous crowd within. The ground floor bar is large enough but should you wish to find some peace there is also a second lounge bar to retreat to.

The Blue Posts; stumble on it but don’t go out of your way to search for it. It is a fine old pub but Fitzrovia’s full of them.

This is a nice, quiet central London pub. It does get busy in the immediate hours after work but generally you can turn up and play a game of darts and find a seat in a corner. Would definitely bring a good book here during the day.
