Great little Pub

The atmosphere of this quaint little english pub was great! They have a large menu which seems like it would please just about anyone. Lots of options. The service was great despite being very busy. They have some local beers on tap (we later made a trip to one of them). Cant wait to come back!

A pleasant place. Service was slow. Food was okay but not great. We had the cob salad and pear salad. Convenient location and good parking. Malibu rum coffee was nice.

We eat here every other month or so. Last time was in the Summer, outdoors in front of the Restaurant. It was really nice and the food was great. Today I had the chicken pot pie that was delicious. The crust was l little over done. My husband had the fish and chips and he proclaimed "The best fish and... More

This has been our favorite family restaurant for the past ten years or so, but we have been disappointed in the last several years. The portions have become noticeably much smaller and the prices have gone up. For example, we always enjoyed a basket of onion rings before dinner for four of us, but now your served a "cone" of...

We stop at Penny Lane Pub for supper after the Essex Christmas Train. I ordered the County Cork Fried Calamari for the Table. There was a strand of hair in the calameri which I found after the strand was caught on a tooth. I pull the strand out and my daughter expression was priceless. We call the waitress and gave...

Four Aleuts and two children on a Sunday evening walked right in. Seated immediately. All dinners were prepared in a wonderful fashion. Great chili and the fried scrod fish was delicious Will go back

Penny Lane has truly delicious food. I especially love their prime rib (not available on Sundays). All the dishes are very tasty and the service is great.

My wife and I have been here several times, as we are looking for a home in Old Saybrook. We stumbled on it by accident and have loved it. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Our bartender, Torey, has been "first class" each time we have visited. The cocktails and selection of... More
