If you're in the mood for "Pub" style cooking coupled with one of the friendliest wait staff in the area then saddle yourself up to the bar or formally sit at one of the many tables and get served! Great beer selections and cooked to order burgers are my favorite at "The Pub". And if your craving appetizers, the spinach... More

Penny Lane is a perfect location to have lunch or an early dinner prior to any performance at "The Kate". The menu has something for everyone. Do try the Lobster Bisque ! We decided to go old school with our selection of Chicken Pot Pie and Sheppards Pie. Fine beer and wine selection. Enjoy the atmosphere !

From a perfectly prepared steak to a salad there is something for everyone. Not much in the way of desserts though.

My husband and I love to go to Penny Lane Pub. The menu has a wonderful variety of choices, from salads and sandwiches to hearty meals like liver and bacon. It can get a bit noisy but the staff will try to seat you upstairs or outside if you prefer. Consistently good!

A great pub right on Main Street! It's lively and provides a true pub experience complete with live entertainment. There was a very good guitarist the night we were there. The bar was small but lots of fun! The food was excellent from the spinach artichoke dip to my steak au poivre which was cooked to medium rare perfection and... More

Stopped in with a friend, had dinner upstairs to avoid all the noise downstairs. This worked until they got busy then the noise level topped out. Wait staff is good, food is also good although a bit pricey for what your getting.nice atmosphere I think of it as more a restaurant then a pub. Would I go again ... yes... More
