“Reall Good Paninis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Stopped here for lunch on a very wet afternoon. The interior is a bit like Costa Coffee with comfy sofas and tub chairs. Bacon & Brie Panini with cranberry sauce, excellent, my wife had Chicken & Brie Panini with chilli sauce, also excellent. Cheerfully served with a couple of nice cups of coffee. On reflection my Panini was probably one of the best I have ever had.

“Sadly Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I’ve been to Penley’s a few times before and always been fairly impressed, and I like the place, hence my return visit.

The atmosphere is welcoming and the staff are cheery and good. On this occasion I went in with my two daughters for lunch and the food was way below previous standards. The jacket potatoes were dreadful, the chilli was granular and tasteless, the other orders were equally poor. Not sure what’s gone wrong and I hope it was nothing more than an ‘off day’ but it was a rubbish.

“Dick Turpin rides again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Beware of the Caesar salad which consisted of 3 Cos lettuce leaves, 2 cherry tomatoes, 1/2 chicken breast sliced very roughly accompanied with a dollop of Tesco's mayonaisse ..... great value at £8.10 !!

“Unchanging”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

I call in for coffee once or twice a year and it never fails to satisfy. Big mug of piping hot cappuccino, clean and comfortable, great service from the two delightful young ladies on duty. I just wish the place attracted more custom.

“Never been disapointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

I have a friend in Leyburn so visit here often. Always get an excellent lunch. Have also been on many occasions and had a great breakfast, I like the fact that you can 'build' your own breakfast. really sad that one of the reviewers was very disappointed..has always been good quality produce ( my partner a farmer we can know our sausages!) excellent and attentive staff. Have had to wait a while on some occasions but have always been for-warned of this. Great coffee!Can recommend the rib eye steak always cooked perfection!
