We had lunch at Penny Lane and glad that we chose this restaurant. Our group of 6 ordered different items and everyone raved about the choice. We ate on the upper level and we liked the atmosphere. Service was also very good!

I like the atmosphere in the bar area. Seating was fine but I had the fish tacos and they were not that good at all. It was like eating fish sticks when you were a child but wrapped in a tortilla

Looks like a bar with a restaurant but the chef is really good, with special touches. You can stay with the pub menu, but I loved the encrusted baked cod. Excellent.

Picked up my daughter at the rail station and she was hungry. We found this place, and I had some reservations based on the reviews. But, it was close by... 1) Table for two outside was far too small, compounded by the waitress not removing empties. 2) Beer brought in bottles. Asked for glasses. They came directly out of the...

Lovely atmosphere and fabulous menu for lunch or dinner. Only downside is no elevator if you are seated on second floor. If sitting outside....plenty of shade available.

If you ever want to experience great food in a cozy atmosphere, then go to Penny Lane. Styled like a British Pub, it has a great ambience, great food, and good prices. It also has an outdoor patio overlooking Main St. I would definitely go back to try other entrees.
