Blackthorn _ left this review about The Post Office Tavern

A curiously named and good sized pub on three levels. The main bar is the largest, with smaller rooms at each end, one slightly higher and one slightly lower.

It’s got a decent cosy pub ambience to it in spite of it’s size, with carpeting throughout, chunky wood beams on the ceiling and a real looking fire (I think it was gas, but it was better than some!). It’s known locally as the “POT at WOT” and appropriately there is plenty of Post Office paraphernalia around, such as a genuine full size old red telephone kiosk in the corner that has now been put in to use as a coat cupboard! There is also an old post box inset in to the wall and a very old fashioned telephone mounted on the wall behind the bar. All a bit quirky, but it certainly adds to the atmosphere.

Interior décor is completed with plenty of mirrors and pictures, some again Post Office related such as drawings of old pillar boxes along with some black and white photo’s of the local area in bygone times. I didn’t check the full menu, but noticed a couple of chalkboards up detailing a selection of baguettes and pizzas. The latter are, I believe, a speciality. There is also a small outside patio area at the back with a warming heater. There was a plasma on in the main bar, but the volume was down fairly low and it didn’t seem to intrusive. Staff all seemed friendly.

The regular beers on tap appeared to be Bass, Courage Best, Doom Bar and Otter Bitter. The guest on this occasion was Caledonian Over The Bar. The solitary cider was Stowford Press.

All in all this seems to be a great, friendly local pub and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Only recently started going here to meet friends on a Sunday evening. Nice, busy, friendly pub and the beer’s reasonably priced and kept well. Living in Brislington, it’s a fair way from where I live, but at least the No 1 bus stops outside!
