what a place! we had dinner on haloween, beer was cheap (3$ a pint) and gooooood, we had the special burger which was percetly made, and fish-n-chips - traditional and good. the apple pie for desert was a nice addition. service was fast and accurate and all with a smile. must visit!

If you are in the East Village in NYC, you won't go wrong at The Penny Farthing at 3rd Ave and 13th St. Not the "best" food I've ever had, but we had a delicious lunch and the next day a sumptuous dinner there. Drinks? Go for it. Bartender and servers were very friendly. Outside dining was quieter than inside... More

Stopped in on a whim as I was heading to another restaurant. Was recommed by desk staff at Hyatt Union Square which is just a few blocks away. The lunch prices were very reasonable for NYC.

We were looking to kill some time, so we stopped in the Penny Farthing for a drink. Our waitress was extremely nice and quick to bring what we asked. Prices were fine for New York.

Dropped in here whilst doing a walkabout in East Village and was not disappointed. Food was good value and tasty with good beer selection...we liked it so much after a bit of shopping dropped in on the way back but with it being HH is was rather rammed so ended poping in next door which is owned by same people....

Great place for brunch. Not of the pretentious NY style of some the Brooklyn "fancy" brunch places. Staff friendly, food good and well priced. Can't go wrong here. I bet it is probably quite a cool bar in the eve, given the space. Good setting and recommended.

Nice quaint bar/restaurant. Have been here for lunch - portabello on banana bread was a combination I would not have thought of, but is great. Have noticed it gets busier at happy hour and early dinner time. Attentive and timely service - very friendly.
