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

Fantastic food with really nice service. The restaurant is under new management and is clearly on the road to being the place to eat in Leyburn. Food took a little while to arrive but was well worth the wait as was quality food.

The place was lovely, well worth a visit if you are in Richmond. It was busy, but the staff managed to keep a smile on their faces and kept pace with the demand. Compliments to the chef, the food that was cooked was delicious. We will certainly be going to Penleys again.

I visited here with my son on a quiet Friday afternoon around 4pm, we ordered a tea, a cappuccino and a slice of cake. The problems began at the till when an inexperienced member of staff with little support had trouble ringing through the charity cake, she asked for help from her colleague that was on her break, who seemed...

Hats off to the young lady (Tania I believe) who clearly knows her stuff. Organising and guiding staff whilst managing to serve diners with professionalism and a smile! This place was struggling before, so much so that we very nearly stopped going. Keep hold of this one please proprietors!!!
