I have been going to Pound & Pence for years, and I was very pleased with my latest visit. I have not been there in two years, and everything was just as great as I remembered. They still make my favorite rum punch and burger....More

There are very few real British pubs in the area. The only other one around was The Cricketer's Arms which unfortunately closed down. The bartenders are very friendly and only add to the enjoyment. The food is top notch as far as British fare and...More

Widely varied menu including well prepared comfort food (chicken pot pie), unique sandwiches, and delicious desserts. A super neighborhood destination.

The place is a little bit hard to find. When you enter off the street you need to go up a flight of stairs and through a light door. The atmosphere is dark. Seating in high backed plush leather chairs. It is an open floor...More

Pound and Pence wants to be a classy place but its time seems to have past. We had dinner. The tables are too small for dinner and the chairs suitable for bars but uncomfortable for dining. The service was slow..took 90 minutes to finish dinner......More

Located in the middle of the Financial District in downtown NYC, Pound & Pence is a traditional English Pub serving delicious food and cold drinks in a fun and lively atmosphere. We offer the typical pub atmosphere, with comfortable seating, a full bar and a menu of British favorites including bangers and mash, fish and chips, shepherd's pie and more. Libations from the expansive bar include British beer favorites such as Fuller's and Boddingtons, as well as several English Gins and a world-class collection of Scotch and Cognac. Good eating deserves good drinking! Unlike many other pubs, Pound & Pence is more than just a place to sit and drink. It's a place watch sports and cheer your team on. Our mezzanine level has a cozy fireplace and pool table to enjoy with friends, while our upstairs area has more of a lounge feel. We even have semi-private rooms to enjoy when you want to be separate from the crowd. Stop by for a fun night out with the family, a romantic couple's dinner or drinks after work. Our unique space is perfectly suited for events, from holiday gatherings and office parties to birthdays, happy hours and more. If you're hungry for our tasty food but can't stay to enjoy your meal, we have takeout available and can even deliver within a 1-mile radius.
