Penny Black, The


review
The Penny Black can be described as little other than a dive, but then people don’t come here for plush interiors and fine wines. The pub’s unusual opening hours (6am-6pm) have led to an eclectic mix of clientele: old men washing down the morning news with a pint of heavy, rubbing shoulders with clubbers refusing to admit their night is over. A cosmopolitan attitude to licensing, or an alcoholism-inducing gin joint? Either way this is a place to be experienced. It’s very easy to convince yourself that a few 8am sharpeners will help you plough though those early morning spreadsheets.
