Big Penny Social


Big Penny Social is a new type of community venue designed to be a pub, arts centre and town square all rolled into one. A place to eat, drink and be entertained.

Located just off Blackhorse Lane, Walthamstow, Big Penny Social is enormous - it has a beer hall, a versatile events space and a great big sunny beer garden.

A massive programme of live events, from live music, big-screen sports and movie nights to family discos, craft markets and comedy – plus free ping pong, pool, table football and board games – ensures there is fun and entertainment for one and all.
With capacity for over 1,400 people, you’re pretty much guaranteed the perfect spot to socialise, whether you’re hosting a big celebration or just want to spend quality time with friends.

The food and drink menu focuses on seasonal ingredients and local producers, headlined by a rotating selection of beers, sourdough pizzas and Sunday roasts. Everyone’s needs are catered for, with alcohol-free beer on tap, a huge selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes, plenty of choices for kids, and options for gluten-free (and other) special diets.

A warm welcome awaits everyone (and their dog!) to enjoy great beer, great food and great times spent together.
