It's a amazing there are so many pubs called The Blue Posts within striking distance of each other. This particular one is great and has all the hallmarks of a good Samuel Smiths pub (cheap drinks and really nice wheat beer).
Upstairs is a good spot to hire if you've got a fair amount of people coming, with really comfy sofa's, a nice bar and lots of space with friendly staff.
Next time I'm in there I will try the food. Certainly a good place to add to the "places in the West End that are not rammed with people & you can just enjoy a quiet drink" list.

Great venue for a screening in a relaxed atmosphere on comfy leather sofas & armchairs. I also attended the Comedy Central screening of 30 Rock and the surround sound was excellent. I imagine it would be a great place to watch the World Cup.
The management are also putting on a special "Round the World" menu so you can sample food & drink from all the countries competing in the World Cup.
The international street food was super tasty (particularly the chicken wings) and fairly priced for Fitzrovia.
Groovy lighting in the basement with a mesmerising fish tank / water effect in the walls also adds to the cool atmosphere!

The team at Cookery School are extremely attentive, knowledgeable and as Siany has said, nothing is too much trouble for them.
They’re great at suggesting things and being helpful but also let you think about cooking in a different way and get you to work on your instincts & make the most of the season’s best ingredients.
Everyone I know who’s been here, through NomNomNom and on private or corporate classes has had a fantastic time and come away knowing what cooking in fantastic state of the art kitchen would be like (thankfully without histrionic chefs throwing things at them).

There’s quite a number of Thai restaurants around this area, but Thai Metro is a good value & friendly Thai. Healthy sized portions which were presented well. Also reasonably priced. I’d go back again, even though there’s nothing to make it really stand out.

As Rob says the Pie Room is brilliant. I went with two friends last week & because we hadn’t booked, they could only fit us in for an hour. However it was a pretty good hour with an enormous plate of Steak & Kidney Pudding groaning with healthy veg, such as very crisp & well cooked cabbage, nice mash (which I couldn’t actually finish as the rest was so good).
It has a very traditional feel and the pies were served on lovely Willow Pattern plates, which I haven’t seen since I was a kid.
All the pie meals are just under a tenner and as well as the steak & kidney pudding, they had many other staples including Steak and Guinness, Chicken Ham & Leek and the special of Dragon Pie. I have no idea what was in Dragon pie as there was only one left, but the waitress told us it was nice and spicy.
How anyone could fit in a dessert after one of the pies in this place is beyond me, but as Rob mentioned they do some good pub puddings as well.
