Full The Penny Black review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/04/the-penny-black.htmlNamed after the world's first self-adhesive postage stamp, The Penny Black is the quintessential Victorian English public house. With an interior almost exclusively designed and built in London, an 'al-fresco' area overlooking the Singapore river, and a private function area for events, The Penny Black is truely an escape into traditional England / London public houses.Ambience at The Penny Black is styled as an authentic, typical British pub. Warm, low lighting and olden wood adorn the place, and furniture ranges from high bar stools to family sized table dining. The 'al-fresco' area has great ambience, but suffers from high ambient temperatures as well. The Penny Black really does remind me of most pubs in London!Service at The Penny Black is friendly, fast and efficient. Staff are welcoming, always smiling, and able to offer advice on the menu. Food is prepared and served relatively quickly, within 10 minutes. While the staff are frequently moving around, I noticed that they do engage you in conversation if you pull up a chair at the bar.The Penny Black offers hearty, authentic British English pub grub, from classic favourites, to some uncommon British dishes. Portions are huge, and well worth the money. Most of the dishes I sampled pack good flavour, are tasty, and are freshly prepared daily. The Penny Black also has several ongoing promotions that change quite regularly.The Sunday Roast, also known as Traditional Roast Beef, features slices of tender, medium-rare beef, in a savoury brown meat gravy. The house signature Parmeson mashed potato is smooth and creamy, while the Yorkshire pudding is perfectly baked, crisp outside and soft inside. The vegetables of broccoli and carrots were almost an afterthought, and not very good, but the sauteed button mushrooms are fresh, not the canned variety. I also loved the house made potato wedges, thick cut with full potato flavour. The Bread & Butter Pudding features layers of buttered bread tightly packed together, then baked in an egg and milk mix, served with a generous drizzle of house made custard sauce. Sweet, filling, and satisfying! continue reading

Authentic presentation of Victorian London pub, restaurant was pretty well-decorated. Environment was the most awesome part, it had quayside seating area which was the ideal alfresco sight-viewing spot. Otherwise, patrons may opt for air-conditioned section with some of them was high tables and inviting bar. I don’t really understand why it was called “Penny Black”, but this unique name was impressive.All their food, I must say, was freshly cooked and hearty mixed. I ordered the classic chicken chop, most usual but super mouthwatering. Assorted veggie as dressing, chicken was grilled until juicy firm. Appropriate amount of sauce was poured on top, overall was flavourful filling. Enjoy and desire their western life-style, I had a relaxed a memorable dinner there. continue reading

Penny black serves really nice western food and it is kind of a Bristol where people can eat and drink. The fish and chips are really nice and I love how the fish is crispy to the bite. The wedges are also really addictive and oh so shiok!! The cheese mussels are another not to be missed item on the menu as the cheese is just so nice with the mussels. The atmosphere here is also really good for chilling out. continue reading

It was a chill out night, a drinks after dinner thing. Half past 8pm, my partner and I wanted to have a quick dinner as we were both hungry so we decided to try Penny Black since it was in the vicinity. By the Boat Quay river, the ambience was definitely a boost factor. The food, however, was a so-so I'd say. My partner ordered the Fish and Chips(served in a pan) while I had a Pan-fried Chicken Chop. For the Fish and Chips, the fried fish was crunchy yet soggy at the same time, as if it was fried twice. It also reeked fishy taste. French fries serving was generous though. For the Chicken Chop, it was served a large piece of chicken breast meat with thick-cut fries and salad. The thing I like about the chicken was that it had no fats, just pure white meat coated with crumbs and cheese.. this would be a positive pointer for those who keep a watch on their weight. Except that though seemingly marinated, it came out pretty bland, had to coat the taste with tomato and chili sauce. Thick-cut fries came soggy and soaked in oil too. Salad was lightly dressed but it was alright. Service was passable, friendly and cheerful staff but only refilled our glasses with water when requested to.. thrice.After the food experience, we gave a second thought to having drinks there so we paid and headed elsewhere. Wouldn't go back there again unless I have to. continue reading
