After a day's walking we were looking for somewhere for a snack and drink. We were parked in the Square and Penleys caught our eye as it looks smart and inviting. On entering no one spoke to us and we sat down at an empty table (the café was half full). We looked at the menu and items on the... More

We visited this café for a coffee and a scone and left feeling underwhelmed. The interior has been tastefully decorated, although the table in the window area with the sofas was not very practical. The atmosphere was not inviting even though the café was busy at the time of our visit. As for the scones, the cost was above average... More

We had an ok evening (16 of us) but not sure the venue and seating arrangements was the best for a large group. Food and service was fine but not sure we would want to go back there.

I have only been to Penleys once and will definitely be returning. Me and a friend went for some dessert and it was mind blowing. Presentation and taste were both fantastic. We both got a complimentary glass of Prosecco which was a bonus! Didn't get a main meal or starter as we had eaten elsewhere so only fancied dessert but... More

In Leyburn, we went a couple of times and enjoyed coffee and cakes. Clean and modern. In centre of town.

After having visited the penleys in Leyburn last year & enjoying it, I decided to try the one in Richmond. What a difference! I ordered the nachos which were ok but expensive for what it was. I asked for them with no sour cream, but when they came, the cream had been included. I visited here with a friend. The... More

We stopped at Penleys in Leyburn for lunch, a couple of years ago, when we were out cycling for the day. The menu was varied, and the food, when it came, was lovely. We discussed coming back one evening to sample the Bistro menu, but never got the opportunity. So we were thrilled to see that they had opened another... More

This bistro was wonderfully accommodating for our evening plans, and as we were in at 5 minutes to 7 charged us as early bird diners. The food was delicious, fresh and the dessert was divine. The atmosphere was relaxed and hope to visit again. A special mention must go to the server, as the bistro was short staffed but she... More
