A subterranean drinking den, which in a vague way reminds me of Bradley's in London, but without the real ale of course.
I didn't record the price or tasting notes of my Wheelie Pale Ale so it must have been fine.

I was looking forward to visiting the Post Office Vaults a little earlier in the day than on my previous visits, which had been after football matches and hence when the pub was pretty crowded. When I popped in I was immediately struck by a dank, fusty smell made worse by being slightly warmer than the outside air. I haven't commented much in reviews about Covid precautions, partly because I felt it was unfair to criticise pub licensees when they are dealing with unprecedented circumstances, with confusing instructions and advice from the government. One of my concerns since pubs reopened and train usage has started to recover is to avoid being in overcrowded and underventilated spaces. Maybe I'm being overcautious, but this place struck me as one that would be potentially unsafe from a Covid point of view, so I did not stay for a drink.

I've not visited the Post Office Vaults for a few years until my recent Saturday afternoon trip. It's still my favourite Birmingham pub.

There are two doors either side of the pub. The bar and seating itself is downstairs. So the pub does suffer from a lack of natural light. You'll also struggle to get a mobile phone signal in the bar, which could be considered to be a positive.

The main attractions of this pub are its friendly drinking environment, its helpful and knowledgeable staff and its superb range of real ales and ciders.

Hobson's Champion Mild & Kinver 1st Class Stamp are regular beers. On this occasion, guests were Ossett Excelcius, XT Animal Hummingbird & Fixed Wheel Blackheath Stout. Ciders were Hogan's Lonely Partridge, Harvest Press, Hazy Rays, Panking Pole & Wild Elder, Palmer's Upland Chartist, Gwatkin Stoke Red & Dan-y-Graig Medium.

Still a great boozer.
