Good menu and nice food

We visited for lunch and enjoyed our visit. Service was good and our food was tasty and we'll presented. We did think soft drinks were over priced though. We would have returned on an evening but the evening menu had limited vegetarian options.

Poor value for money. Fish and chips badly cooked.. Fish was dry and batter nearly burned, seemed to me it had been previously cooked then re fried!

While in Leyburn, looking for somewhere to have coffee called into Penleys and found it a nice place to have just that. The staff were excellent and took time to find out a place we needed to find, and provided us with the postcode for our satnav to find it. Well done Penleys and yes we did find place.

Large and spacious seating area. Pleasant staff. My favourite dish is the chilli baked potato. Husband enjoys the omelettes. Coffee and hot chocolate are delicious. reasonable prices. Convenient position in centre of Leyburn.

The Good.... lovely market place location, clean, comfortable and serving good coffee and a selection of lunchtime snacks. The Bad.... an inattentive waitress with her head in her phone !, requested a sandwich off the menu without the Chips - okay but you'll still have to pay full price. Earl Grey tea delivered instead of Green... that waitress again. So... More

We visited for our anniversary and were seated just before 7, so were offered the early bird option. The food was very nice and the staff friendly.

Superb. Food was great, with generous portions. Service was friendly and efficient. Look out for the two and three course deals between 6pm and 7pm. Decor is very clean and modern, loved it..

The food was excellent and the menu varied. Service was polite and friendly, and staff took the time to come and check our meal was okay. I was pleasantly surprised and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a good place to meet and eat or just have a relaxing drink.

Oh, Penleys Penleys Penleys. You never seem to get it right, do you? Such a shame. I've been here twice in recent weeks. The first time was to sample the new cocktails that they had been raving about on Facebook. Sadly, we could not drink them. Mine was an alcoholic chocolate milkshake. The milk was off. My friend had a... More
