Sylvan Post, The - Forest Hill

The Sylvan Post - Forest Hill

An old post office converted into a thoroughly modern pub: is that progress? It is for those Forest Hillians who like good beer and decent food. This is another of Antic’s excellent ‘collective’ of pubs, and it bears that classic shabby-chic stamp: mismatched furniture (plundered, by the looks of it, from churches and schools), quixotic decoration (old postcards) and a genuinely welcoming atmosphere. BrewDog’s 5am Saint and Meantime’s Pale Ale are often found on keg while the handpumps should include at least one of the big craft beer names: Moor, Thornbridge, Ilkley, etc.
