THE BLUE POSTS



ALPINE RATING: 6 OUT OF 10



81 NEWMAN STREET, LONDON, W1T 3EU
TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD AND GOODGE STREET TUBE.






SO.. WHERE DOES ONE BEGIN WITH THE BLUE POSTS?....
WELL LETS START WITH THE FACT THERE IS ANOTHER PUB CALLED 'THE BLUE POSTS' ABOUT 10 MINUTES AWAY. SO DON'T GET THEM MIXED UP. IT'S A COPPER BOTTOMED GUARANTEE THAT THIS WILL BE THE CHEAPER OF THE TWO.
I LIKE THE BLUE POSTS, ITS QUAINT, IT HAS CHARACTER, IT HAS SAMUEL SMITH BEER. WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE? MY ONLY REASON REALLY FOR THE LOWER THEN AVERAGE SCORE (AND 6 AIN'T BAD) IS THE SPACE OR RATHER THE LACK OF IT...



I WENT TO VISIT THIS PUB ON A SUNDAY AND I WAS THE ONLY PERSON IN THERE. IT MUST GET BUSY LATER ON BECAUSE 'THE CHAMPION' ACROSS THE ROAD IS CLOSED ON SUNDAYS. ACCORDING TO MY SOURCES, THIS PLACE GETS RAMMED TO BURSTING   MOST WEEKDAY NIGHTS. I ORDERED A STOUT (THOUGHT I'D HAVE SOMETHING DIFFERENT) AND IT WAS LOVELY. THE SERVICE WAS PROMPT, IT WOULD BE WOULDN'T IT?!! 
THIS PUB IS A PERFECT SPOT FOR A PINT AFTER SHOPPING OR AFTER WORK. THUMBS UP. THE FITZROY TAVERN IS A COUPLE OF MINUTES AWAY AND I'M AFRAID THAT'S WHY THE BLUE POSTS SUFFERS FROM THE UGLY SISTER SYNDROME. THE FITZROY IS HEAVEN AND THIS IS STILL GOOD. 
LOOK, ITS LIKE COMPARING GLEN HODDLE TO PELE. BOTH GOOD FOOTBALLERS, BUT A CLEAR DIFFERENCE IN CALIBRE.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR,.... HAVE A PINT HERE AND THEN HOP ON OVER TO THE FITZROY TAVERN. THUMBS UP FOR AN EXCELLENT PUB.
GOOD WORK UNCLE SAM.
