Once a Royal Mail Post Office serving the community of SE23 and beyond, Sylvan Post is now a vibrant part of Forest Hill life. Located only a short distance from Forest Hill Station on Dartmouth Road, its original assortment of 1960′s Post Office decor, vaults, stamp collection, and vintage charm makes the Sylvan Post a quirky yet traditional pub perfect for any social occasion.
Spread across a large open bar and dining area, and two reception rooms, Sylvan Post is a spacious yet lowly lit and cosy family friendly local. Boasting five real ale pumps, we offer a handpicked selection of local and regional ales. Our ever-changing bottled beer selection embraces the familiar to the obscure, and our dynamic spirit and wine lists means that there is always something new to try.
Open every day of the week, our kitchen serves fresh seasonal British pub fare and bar snacks. Our coffee machine serves a variety of your favourite brews, never failing to keep you warm throughout the winter months. Round up the family and enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon with one of our traditional roasts serving the finest butchers joints and vegetarian options. Don’t forget to browse our board game selection!
We have DJs playing an eclectic mix of funk, soul, disco and retro every Friday evening from 9pm and our famous (in South East London) quiz night every Tuesday from 8pm offers a fun and interactive mid-week alternative.
We have a variety of private seating areas and cosy corners suitable for entertaining and party bookings. Please call us or ask a member of our friendly team for more details. ​
