Partially drawn to the delectable list of the sandwiches available as well, the pastrami sandwich does sound awesome after seeing the kind of pastrami New York serves up! Well guess I was at fault for expecting a new york deli style sandwich at an English bar, but this sandwich did look appetizing on arrival.
Pastrami and Camembert Sandwich ($15.50) - A paltry three thin cuts of pastrami and a paltry three slivers of camembert cheese, taste wise overall was just alright. The pastrami was surprisingly tough and bland though the salty cheese and balsamic did help. The white bread was tough as well so it was honestly rather a chore to work through this sandwich! None too impressed. Fries double fried.
Apple and Rhubarb Crumble ($10) - This was excellent! The buttery sweet crumble was amazing. Probably the best I've ever had! This is the go-to dessert if you're in the mood for something sweet but non chocolatey - the home made crumble was sweet and crunchy, apple rhubarb mix just mildly sweet and warm and the cold ice cream was just the perfect complement.
Penny Black serves up some other yummy-sounding and good-looking food of mostly English variety, so if you're in the area for some grub and beer do definitely check this place out. Old Speckled Hen and Kilkenny are both on tap!
I spent $22 per person.
