“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Visited the pub in June last year, at the time wasnt on TA to leave a review.

This pub is a wee gem hidden off the main street, we wanted a pub for lunch and was pointed in the direction of this one....the boy behind the bar was really friendly and welcoming, a nice range on the menu that day, food was fresh and very tasty.

Well worth a visit

“1st rate Traditional local pub visitors made welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Hidden little gem of a pub tucked away on side street just off town centre a must find. Excellent selection of ales with weekly new additions to guest ale menu. Staff and local customers warm and welcoming, whilst I did not dine the food and menu appeared varied and good value for money.

“Great pub food, welcome and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had a pre-cinema meal of Thai Fishcake starter and Steak Pie, which were all freshly made, tasty and delicious. Really nice salad, vegetables, the attractive presentation together with a warm welcome and great service made us want to return. Prices were reasonable, the pub was warm at around 5.30 pm on a bitterly cold day, so altogether really good.

Good selection of beers, nice coffee, handy for the cinema. Friendly and warm, another reason why a pub crawl in penrith makes sense!
