The board is very visible, so if you’re gonna throw here, throw well, you’ll be on show. Still, it’s a lovely proper old pub, and not a bad place to wait around for your friend(s), who have gone to the WRONG BLUE POSTS.
Yes, it’s important that you find the correct Blue Posts – there are five in and around Soho. In the mid-nineteenth century there were 15 Blue Posts in this part of London, and prior to that there were no doubt several more. The story goes that a blue post signified a Sedan Chair stop – effectively it was where you waited for a bus, before buses. And what better thing to put at a bus stop than a pub, with a dart board. (The story may or may not be true, but, like, whatever).
