We eat at Penley's every time we visit Leyburn, so our second visit this year. The early bird deal is great value and the food is fabulous. Many thanks once again.

I hired penleys for a charity function I was holding. They provided canapés and an arrival drink for the guests then people could buy further drinks. Everything was excellent. I received nothing but great feedback for the people attending, they all said the canapés were delicious. The staff were extremely helpful both leading up to it and on the night... More

This is one of the best meals we've had, the service was friendly and very accommodating, even rearranging tables to make room for our party of 9 including one high chair! All of our party were left fully satisfied with both quantity, quality and cost of the food here! If staying in Leyburn this is a great place to eat!!!

The service was quick, although I think one of the waiters was learning! Food was delicious and ample, with complimentary rolls to start. We arrived at 7.15 (on a Friday) and by 8.00pm it was pretty busy. It has a cafe/bistro atmosphere and I would certainly recommend it.

Me and my boyfriend came here for lunch while holidaying in Aysgarth. We enjoyed it so much that we booked in for the evening meal! The food was really well presented and was lovely. The homemade chips made it even better. Good service also. All round two very nice meals and if i was ever in the area again i... More

The food here is varied, well cooked and beautifully presented (although I am not a fan of meals served on slates as a small number of dishes here are - that's just my personal preference) The service is very good overall although some of the staff are very quiet. The early bird special is very good value at £15.95 for... More

A great place to eat. I have been eating here once a year every year for the past 7 years whilst holidaying in nearby Hawes. Always good food. This year however the staff on the till were displaying a hostile, can't be bothered attitude. You need to address your customer service skills

Enough said really. The cafe was modern and tasteful inside, the bakewell tart was fantastic, coffee average and service rude. Maybe our waitress had had a bad day but it's pathetic to take that out on your customers. I don't even know how to describe her attitude but it was so bad I had to walk away half reeling half...

Disliked the wide range of choice on the menu it made it hard to select from such a mouth watering list. Loved the Rib eye steak with bacon and blue cheese sauce.

We visited on a Friday night. Having read the reviews on here we were expecting good food and average service and that's exactly what we got! Couldn't fault our meals. Service was polite but fairly slow even though it wasn't busy and even the lady who appeared to be the manager was more interested in looking out of the window... More
