Stumbled upon this jewel as a tourist then as a resident of Penrith. Great value for money and a welcome break from the run of the mill chain pub that is just down the road. Visit and enjoy.

Many locals eat and drink here so the atmosphere is a busy but warm one. The menu has something for everyone, the food is well cooked and presented, the staff are very friendly/helpful and the prices are very reasonable indeed. Highly recommended

The staff are lovely here but the food is pricey for what you get. Don't get me wrong, it is nice and the environment is lovely... but the food is expensive.

We were having a short break in Penrith for my husband's 50th birthday. We decided to go and see an am dram performance at the playhouse and this hotel was conveniently next door so we decided to eat there. Staff were friendly and helpful. Service was fast and most of the food was good. I love lamb and decided to... More
