Royal Mail

Picture source: T C


The Royal Mail was situated at 153 Upper Street. This pub closed in 2013 and was previously a branch of the Grand Union chain.
I remember this pub from many years ago around 1975-76. At the time I was travelling a team of Showjumpers around the country and all their names were Royal something so I called one of them Royal Mail after this pub. After winning a show in the area we called by the pub and introduced my Royal Mail to them and left the first Rosette with them which was hung up behind the bar. I live in Australia now but have often wondered if this pub still existed. Lovely memories. A pub filled with lots of homely atmosphere. I was from North Wales and used to stay with a family friend who lived nearby and used the pub as his local. I was fascinated by a chap coming in selling jellied eels. I never did have the courage to try them.
