Square Meal Review of The Penny Black Restaurant & Bar ?

For a restaurant named after an ancient, redundant postage stamp, The Penny Black is nimble and adaptable: originally conceived as a Fulham fine diner in 2011, the white table cloths and formality were soon ejected in response to lukewarm feedback, now replaced with bare tables, black leather chairs and framed graffiti. Well-drilled and smart service survived the overhaul, along with big tastes: locally sourced British classics such as beef Wellington or poached duck eggs with stilton and mushrooms leave a lasting impression, the latter served in a superlative, creamy sauce. Chunky Aberdeen Angus fillet steaks are both charred and moist, while daily fish specials are sourced from Scotland. For dessert, the giant bread and butter pudding avoids typical stodginess, instead being creamy and the right side of chewy. The bar boasts 100 wines by the glass, cocktails and low lighting – there's nothing Victorian about this Penny Black.

Wine List Of The Year

This is a rarity. A 100-bin wine list where every listing is available by the glass or half-bottle carafe, with a decent tasting note to match. It isn’t too cheap (this is Chelsea), but the list is welcoming and helpful. Matthew Clark and Louis Latour dominate, but the upside is Latour’s Echezeaux Grand Cru by the glass.
