A friend of mine and I went here the other day and for under £10 we could get a bottle of prosecco and it was quite nice bottle. It was a very sports bar atmosphere but it was still a nice place to chill out...More

Was in this bar a few times during a weekend visit . Afternoons are football and horse racing . Night brought a more dance atmosphere with good music . Drinks are reasonably priced . Would definitely return

The Penny Bank has just re-opened from a recent refurbishment and it looks a lot nicer and more comfortable inside.

I came in to see how the place looks and it looks good, like a old country pub and was quite busy for a Monday at half 5. Drinks are a good price as only £2.65 for a large glass of house white. They don't...More

Grub was great. Home made chips were brill (perhaps a little longer in the fryer) . Kids meals we're free as they're under 5. Toilets are a rough but who gives a hoot. Will be back
