“Family Get Together”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

We have been twice in Ma different days. The quality of the food clearly fiffers on what day you go. The waitress service was fine.

“Could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We waited nearly an hour for an OK meal. There wasn't much of an atmosphere but the beer was great. The waitress was a little ditzy delivering the wrong food but other than that it was an ok experience.

“Great food, but quite expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

At the Bun Penny they provide great service. The food is really lovely, but can be quite expensive for what it is!
Great place for couples, or a group. Wouldn't really say it's a place for a child. I would definately rate it for special occasions!

“Food Okay but overpriced.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We have used this pub/restaurant a few times over the years when we want a bite to eat. This has always been an expensive place to eat but when we first used this pub 10/11 years ago there was a choice of sandwiches/ lighter meals.. Since then the pub has changed management and there is no longer a big choice on the menu. The meals range from £8.99 - £13.99. They also do smaller portions at £7.95

We decided to eat there yesterday which was Bank Holiday Monday. There was only us and another family eating in the restaurant which I thought was quite telling. I had expected it to be quite busy.

Although having our order taken and receiving our food was within the time we would have expected to wait, I thought that we waited a bit too long for the plates to be cleared away and for our children's dessert order to be taken. The staff were very polite and professional.

The food was okay but we feel that we can get better food for less money elsewhere. There really is no reason why we would use this pub/restaurant again.
