We walked past the Penny Black many times and it was a mistake. We should have had dinner there sooner. So last night we decided to book there. We took a well travelled friend of ours with us and she equally enjoyed it. For starter we had the mushroom veloute' that was as the name implies: velvety. Not the usual watered down version or the glutinous stodge that you normally get. The hash brown was full of taste althought I would have liked my egg a bit more runny. For mains we had tiger prawns and our guest said that they were some of the best she ever had. The Wellington was extremely well executed and the spinach that came with it was crunchy and tasty. The puds menu has all the classics and the apple crumble is delicious. However what is really remarkable is the wine list. All the wines are available by the bottle and by the glass. The list is incredibly well assembled and it is long. The service was competent, friendly and completely unfussy. We hope that teh Penny Black will endure and will not follow the fate of its predecessors on the same site. From our part we will be back very very soon.
