Not a great deal of choice in Penrith and this was a poor one. The stools my wife and I sat on were monumentally uncomfortable and not conducive to leisurely eating. The very pleasant and welcoming waitress (owner?) was at pains at the outset to explain how large the portions were going to be which seemed to negate the whole... More

This place is hard to beat for a fun evening out in Penrith. It is a great meeting place and very popular with parties of all kinds. Great atmosphere and always lots of music and entertainment. The owners are a fun couple and love to dress up in costume as their staff do also. The food is really tasty and... More

We were recommended to try this place by a family friend. The atmosphere was great, with friendly and helpful staff. It was perfect for what we wanted having spent the day riding as part of the coast to coast challenge. Staff took the time to go through the menu and ensure you order enough food and explained the specials for... More

It was my wife's bday so treated her to a meal here as we have been before and really enjoyed it. But when we got there and shown to our table it was right against the wall and the chairs where at opposite ends which felt like there was a mile between us when we sat down which with the... More

Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, lovely food - and lots of it, so don't make the mistake of ordering too much! I've been here twice and enjoyed it both times. Will definitely be going back and would recommend to everyone.

My wife and I went to Costas yesterday for dinner. We arrived at 7pm (which is quite late for eating out in Penrith) and were the only ones there. By the time we left there were 8 of us in the restaurant. This place can probably sit close to 100, so clearly they aren't meeting expected demand. And sadly, I... More

After travelling from mid Scotland, and having been recommended by the B&B owners where we were breaking our journey en route for Surrey, we were looking forward to the selection of light, tasty nibbles that are "tapas" in our understanding and experience (both in Spain and in a wide London to south coast area). Our first disappointment was being placed... More

It was our second visit to Costa's and after ordering too much the first visit, we listened to the waitress who advised us that the portions were on the large size. The whole experience was enjoyed by our guests and they are lookingt forward to our next visit to Costa's when they come up to Penrith this Spring. The whole... More
