Tris C left this review about The Blue Posts

Another late 19th century rebuild and one of at least nine former and current pubs by this name in W1.
It’s quite small inside, hence the exclusively tall metal topped furniture. The bar appears modern, with a wire rack gantry; the bar back is modern wood. The walls are half height dark field panelled, with a decent wood surround to the fireplace. The floor is bare boarded and lighting comes from modern glass shaded lamps hanging from the white panelled ceiling. There are very attractive bowed windows and pretty etched glass clerestory windows above stained and leaded panels. Quite loud yacht rock played over the stereo and customers seemed to be office workers’
A friendly barmaid stood sentinel behind pumps dispensing GK IPA and Landlord, at a very pricey £2.90 a half and nice it was too.
This isn’t a bad little place, but it’s a bit lacking in imagination, is a little too noisy and the choice of beer is mundane.

Hard to tell the difference between this Greene King pub and a Nicolsons pub internally apart from the rubbish beer selection here.Tried the Gk -ipa from the new branded pumpclip.Nope still same dreadful tasteless beer.

Compact, traditional, corner pub. Not much space in the main bar area, but with it's large windows it has quite an airy feel. However, there is also another small lounge/dining area bar (but, be warned, no real ale) upstairs. Now has three handpumps in operation, offering IPA, its 'house' bitter and 1799 (£3.85) on my latest visit. Overall, one of Greene King's better central London houses (and the beer is well kept).
