Caught some of Chelsea game though this is unashamedly a Liverpool FC pub - and nothing wrong with that! Shame not here for their game. Good range of beers and feel of English city boozer. Just my kind of thing

Their hostess completely ignored me and asked those people behind me how many were in their party. I told her I was next in line. Then I was informed that I could get a seat, but no food for about 40 minutes. As I was...waiting along with another table, she came back and said to us, "We haven't forgot about you, we're just ignoring you." I thought she was kidding. Big mistake, several people left without being served. I was an upset non-customer.More

Everything you expect in a British pub. Lots of great British beers on tap, and they do a nice job on most of the pub classics like fish & chips and meat pies. I try to drop in for a pint whenever I'm in town....I recommend you give them a try if you like British beer and hearty pub food.More

My wife and I stopped here TWICE to have a drink while visiting Richmond. The service from the bar staff was fantastic -- even suggesting/recommending our beer selections. The decor of the pub is right out of England -- Liverpool to be exact. I'm betting...that the pub food is just as good as everything we experienced.More

We happened to stumble upon this place when walking back from a museum visit and I am so happy we did! The food was great, the service stellar and the décor was very interesting. I had the fish and chips and it was a great...portion size. Not overly impressed with the canned peas but that is just me.More

What a great place! We were passing through Richmond and needed a place to eat, 9 of us (including 2 kids). Our server Daniel was awesome! Very patient and had great recommendations. Food was good, beer was too!

This was a complete accident. We were tired and wanted to eat near the hotel and just stumbled in to Penny Lane. Having lived in England for years, we never seem to fine a "true" pub here but Penny Lane was a great surprise. We...shared the fish and chips and loved it! They have a great list of proper beers and the service is so nice. Its casual and affordable, We'll be back for sureMore

Ex-pat, so I know my fish and chips and these are on the better end. Fish read good. Chips as good as can be expected(some thing about US potatoes). Curry was tasty. I'm medium tikka in UK and felt in I could have had the...hotter UK version. Small inside and they've made the effort to make it an English pub. Little cheesey but fun none the less. Would recommend.More

Great menu, great food, fantastic service. Went in on a Sunday for lunch and it was great. Server (female from South Africa) was genuine and personable. We've been to the UK several times, and the decor/atmosphere was spot on. 100% satisfied, and will be back....and...we don't even live local.More

Stopped here on the way home to hear a friends group play. The Clay Motley band was super. We stopped here with my son and daughter-in-law for a little while after dinner. Lots of friends were there too! Music was great and not too loud....Sat at the bands table with all the people we knew. Since we had just eaten dinner, we opted for some drinks only. Stayed longer than we expected because it was just a nice place and everyone was having a super time. Service was great, and the ones that got food, well the pizza looked amazing. You have to go and see for yourself.More

It was hopping on Valentines Day and mighty cold outside. It was a little dark but friendly. My wife had a hot adult beverage with whipped cream on top but I just had a bread pudding with drizzle of chocolate and whipped cream. Service was...fine with a lot of hustle. Decor was arresting with lots of mugs and Beatles era Liverpool memorabilia.More
