About Pound & Pence
A barrow boy pushes his cart past horse-drawn carriages, police on horseback, and a lady on a stroll, parasol in hand. This historical scene, appropriately tinted in sepia, hangs above diners at Pound & Pence, where it's one of two 10-foot murals that depict lively streets and pubs in 19th-century England.
Although Pound & Pence's proprietors can't re-create the days of Dickens on all New York's streets, they do conjure an old-time vibe inside their establishment.
Dark woodwork, chairs and benches with floral upholstery, and historic English memorabilia contribute to the space's refined, yet lived-in vibe. A grand staircase in the center of the space leads visitors to a level that feels more like a parlor than a pub, complete with leather wingback chairs, a fireplace, and a pool table lined with bright-purple felt.
New York magazine praised the pub's ability to exude refinement without feeling stuffy, noting that Pound & Pence, "lacks most of its district’s pretense and feels downright humble."
International Pub Cooking
Pound & Pence's British roots are apparent throughout the menu as well. In addition to serving classic pub staples—including chicken tikka masala and shepherd's pie—the staff also ensures that the shelves remain stocked with a healthy selection of English gins, single-malt scotches, and cognacs.
However, not every dish is steeped in British tradition. Items such as the cheddar-stuffed jalapeño poppers and the 10-ounce certified Angus burger topped with applewood bacon, barbecue sauce, and crispy onion strings showcase some of the menu's more contemporary American influences.
