Komakino . left this review about Jolly Postboys

Located between the busy Cowley centre and quiet Iffley in suburban Florence Park, this pub had been closed and had been rumoured to be converted into a KFC. Instead, this 30s-style pub was taken on by the people in charge of The Chester (Arms) just off Iffley Road (which itself had been rescued from a period of closure) and re-vamped. An L-shaped interior remains, with the entrance-facing bar still in situ and a main area opposite now resplendent in a dark blue / light blue paint scheme and bare floorboards underfoot. The emphasis, as with most revivals, is on the dry stuff and plenty were in attendance on a Sunday lunchtime, making finding a spot to imbibe difficult, especially with the young and vibrant staff bustling about. Three cask ales were on offer - West Berks Good Old Boy, Loose Cannon Gunners Gold and Loose Cannon Scottish Smokehouse Ale, with a fourth unclipped. Six keg taps mainly dispensed lager, but I found myself partaking in a half of keg Deya Steady Rolling Man APA which served as a decent antidote to the Scottish Smokehouse Ale which was on its way out. Good to see another Oxfordshire public house rising from the ashes but I got the impression you'd need to phone ahead to book a table prior to a visit. Note that despite being a freehouse, it still retains its old GK signpost.
