Postal Order, SE19 3RW

The Postal Order was a Wetherspoons pub in Crystal Palace. It closed down in Spring 2021 when the company decided not to renew the lease.

The information below is retained for historical purposes.

Wetherspoons pub in Crystal Palace.

It's a fairly standard Wetherspoons: patterned carpet, low ceiling, a couple of booths at the back, and local history displays on the walls.

Kake visited on a Wednesday afternoon in July 2014. It was fairly empty when I arrived around 4pm, but by 5:30pm there were a fair few people in and a very lively buzz of conversation (but still plenty of free tables). As is usual with Wetherspoons, no music was playing. Service was friendly and helpful. A pint of lime and soda was 65p.

Food is served all day. In July 2014, Kake's starter portion of spicy coated king prawns (£3.90 for six) had a good, crisp batter with no traces of grease, and the prawns themselves were perfectly cooked. (I've had this dish in several Wetherspoonses, and this version was probably the best.)

Accessibility: Step-free to get in, step-free throughout, and there's an accessible toilet on the ground floor (other toilets are up two or three flights of stairs).
