Good place to have a solid meal . Upstairs is better for a quieter meal . Downstairs can be noisy so we usually go upstairs . Although if you go early like 5-6 downstairs is ok . The staff are always helpful and nice . Sometimes you can find live music on the weekends .

Planned business dinner here and decided to sit at the bar. Service and food were excellent, and irish pub atmosphere was very pleasant. I will surely return.

All of the bartenders are friendly and helpful and we come here often for a cozy meal at the bar. My husband especially enjoys the prime rib, while the pear salad with a salmon or chicken topping is my go-to favorite. The salmon and other fish dishes are always fresh and well-prepared and there are some interesting English pub selections... More

My husband and I recently went for a late lunch to Penny Lane Pub & Restaurant. The staff was very welcoming, and despite it being 2 PM, it was pretty full with patrons. We started with fried calamari. The rings only appetizer, which I prefer, was piping hot and perfectly cooked. In addition to a marinara dipping sauce, there was... More

My husband and I had lunch here on a balmy day. They accommodated our desire to sit upstairs because of the heat of the day and though we were alone, we had attentive and prompt service. Great swordfish special and a veggie sandwich. Even the sweet potato fries were great. Will be back soon.

We just returned home from a trip to England and sampled fish and chips in many cities. Penny Lane, without exception, has the best fish, not only here but England too! The chips would be better if they were handcut and not the frozen variety, but their fish is superb!

We had a double date and have been here many times before. Tonight they were short on staff hence service was slow and inefficient. We sat outside which was pleasant until the police came to assist someone who had locked himself out of his car. Our food was so so...nothing to write home about. The prime rib was fatty and... More

Do not get me wrong, we love this place and try to visit anytime we come to Connecticut. We went there last Friday night and I ordered a basic veggie burger which was tasty. My wife ordered the Asian Tuna, and it was basically tasteless, and not really well presented. As I said we have eaten here in the past,... More

Stopped in for a quick Friday night dinner. Waited approx 20 mins for a table in the upstairs dining room. Felt a little claustrophobic, would have preferred to eat in the main dining room. Food selection was ample, and everything we ordered was delicious. Service was lacking at first, however improved dramatically by the end of our meal. The dining... More
