Drinks are London prices! Food is over priced and below average. Staff are all polite but very young with no real experience between them. Such a shame, it looks nice when you walk in but you leave feeling like you have been overcharged and wishing you had just cooked at home :-(

Although I live in the same village as the Penny Farthing I don't often use the pub as I usually find the experience disappointing. However, after our neighbours invited us to accompany them for tea my wife and I decided to give the pub another chance. Unfortunately yet again it simply wasn't up to scratch. Firstly the food. I chose... More

went for a sunday lunch, which was a decent meal if not a little on the expensive side...£10.00 for 1 course, ive had just as good if not better at other places, the staff were friendly, appeared very inexperienced but that was probably due to the fact that they were all very young.

The carpet leading to the bedrooms is disgusting, first impressions makes a difference and this is not good, The bedroom whilst nice enough, had cobwebs that had been there for quite some time. The restaurant, mmmmm... More

We arrived on time for a booked table and found just one man trying valiantly to cope with running the bar on his own, greeting us, serving the diners and answering the telephone. He did his best to serve the few drinkers and one other table but was frequently interrupted by his remote 'phone handset even in the middle of... More

Excellent quality food. main & desert for £10 on Wednesday Evening and on Saturday's 12-6p.m Chef is an asset!!! The place is generally ok - but - carpets do need cleaning, toilets need freshening up and lighter wallpaper would make all the difference especially in the little annex as there is a cozy but dingy feel. This great little gem... More

After reading many good reviews about the Penny Farthing Inn we were very disappointed. The room was dusty with cobwebs everywhere and the carpet needed vacuuming. The bathroom floor was covered in dead moths which were cleaned up straight away. The bathroom door would not shut unless slammed and then the locking mechanism fell out. The bed had 2 feet... More

Visited for a wedding in nearby Wotton-Spa. Just what was needed for an overnight stay, with bed and breakfast for a reasonable price. Clean rooms and comfy beds, and the breakfast was cracking! I'd definitely recommend this B&B

Definately not 4 star and could do with a face lift in some areas. In Lincs for the Cereals show and this was the closest we could get to site, reasonably priced for single occupancy so no complaints for the price but......carpet up to rooms badly in need of a clean or renewal, bedding & lampsahdes very old fashioned, rooms...

This restaurant is very good, the food is great, and although it was quiet when my parents and I were in there, I thought it was a good atmosphere. As I said earlier, the food is good, apart from the ice cream on the dessert menu, that didn't taste good as it was frozen, not creamy as it should usually... More
