Great choice of gins at good prices. Loved the Tanqueray No.10 at just over £4 for a double with free tonic. I had a chicken balti which was very tasty and hot,with rice, naan bread and popadoms. Ben was very friendly and helpful behind the bar and the lady who served the meal was very pleasant too,

Visited the Penny Black whilst passing through Northwick and we were both pleasantly surprised. Fairly typical Weatherspoons but food was lovely, good portions and tasty. Will go back, if we visit again
