As the Blue Posts is situated in a side-street round the back of the Ritz, you'd be forgiven for expecting this pub to be pretty swanky sort of place - but it resolutely is not. It's a traditional pub in the old T&J Bernard mould; there are some good, well-kept beers on the hand pumps - Deuchar's, Landlord, Young's Bitter etc - and there are chalkboards displaying traditional, averagely-priced pub grub, simple, standard, wooden pub furniture etc, etc. It's a somewhat formulaic offering, you'll find all over the West End, and beyond, and consequently, to us it's somewhat soulless. Not that it seems to bother the clientele, mostly comprised of office workers from round about and a few tourists, who flock here lunchtimes and evenings, prior to the commute home (it can get pretty crowded). If you're in the mood for a decent pint and not fussy about atmosphere or originality you'll be happy enough here at the Blue Posts, if you're looking for something with a little more authenticity, you'll have to travel further afield.
