Food was well cooked. Hot and steaks cooked as asked. However, quality was poor. Nacho sharing starter very small. Not worth price of meal. All staff helpful and nice. Clean.

Cheap food, slow service (it was a busy Friday evening). Steak was tasteless,chips were horrible. Starter (coconut shrimp) was nice and the dessert was fine (hard to get ice cream wrong though). It was very cheap but I wouldn't go again...

Attended on what was clearly a busy Saturday night, quickly ordered and paid at bar, staff member at this point was not very happy and bordering on rude. Food eventually arrived 1 1/2 hours later and the order was completely wrong. Wrong pizza, sauces etc,...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I went very recently to 'Penny Farthing' and as my recent review was very happy, so find the number of poor and terrible reviews rather surprising. I went at lunchtime and it was not too busy, so is it different when it is busy? Do they try to cope with busy periods with the same staff? I did not see the management and had no reason to ask to see them. I am mystified. Oliver1813
