Just went in for a quick shopping lunch. All our plates/cups were chipped, service was far too laid back - called me darlin. Food very average and took too long to come. Would not go back

Went here this morning with my mum and dad. At 1130 we ordered 1 filter coffee, 1 hot chocolate, 1 latte and 2 toasted tea cakes. At 1150 the drinks appeared, at 1155 the tea cakes appeared.

Oh dear, this visit was terrible, the young staff were so slow and when our order for 4 drinks had not arrived after 20 minutes I went to see what had happened... More

Popped into Penleys on the way home from a stay in Yorkshire. Lovely place to eat, friendly and efficient staff and a lovely lunch provided. Large portions meant quite a hearty meal, but value for money. Great pot of tea too!

Sorry, not impressed, with price, meal quality, presentation and reaction of staff. Wont be coming back and hope this warns off others! Only one table clean and service slow Lunch arrived on overflowing small plate that food fell off from (old trick some owners just don't learn from).
