About the Pub

Reported ClOSED in late 2019 due to death of lessee. Local rumour is that the site will have a major refurb including underpinning of the structure. Future of site uncertain.

Built in 1832, the name refers to the exchange of the royal mail by horse drawn coach, which ceased with the advent of steam. Take a look at the punning pub sign which tells a different story! This is a small, traditionally furnished street corner London boozer tucked away in a side street a few minutes away from Paddington GWR station, with Edgware Rd underground stations and bus routes nearby. Free house ownership and managed by an Irishman, live music is sometimes performed and food is available. Small outside drinking area on pavement. Strong local and Irish following.
