- On August 31, 2016
The Post & Telegraph is part of the JD Wetherspoon group consisting of pubs, late night bars and hotels. Built between 1921 and 1923, it was a branch of National Provincial Bank and in 1968 it merged with the Westminster Bank to form the National Westminster Bank. From the 1990s, in response to changes in Government policy over alcohol licensing, many bank branches were sold for conversion into pubs and bars, so it was turned into a bar. In July 2010 it was acquired by the JD Wetherspoon chain and became its second pub in central Brighton.
The building has a Neoclassical architecture with an outside rusticated facade, floral details and tall round-arched windows. There is an elaborated information plaque with golden writings and the door is decorated with zodiac-themed reliefs. The inner part has lot of sophisticated wooden arrangements and many crystal exposures.
