We went for a family birthday lunch. All in all the starters were decent enough. Mains were average. What completely tipped the experience from "mediocre" to "absolutely awful" was the management. When questioning the price of the bill to the chef/owner Mr Penk himself we...More

Rude, inefficient & poorly priced. Queens Park has in recent years come up in the world. Quite plainly, the people who own this "restaurant" are exploitative in the extreme. Poorly trained & ineffective staff compound the experience. Avoid.

Although staff were friendly and attentive, the food was very disappointing. I had cheese starter and ribeye steak, very plain no colour on the plate and no taste. This is local to us and I don't think I would risk giving it another go.

This little local restaurant produces consistently well cooked, well designed modern french/european cuisine, at a reasonable price. There is a smallish menu, but one which changes over time. The wine list is also smallish, but carefully chosen. Because local, I have dined and brunched here...More

We have been to Penks on 3 occasions. Each time the place has been buzzing and the staff very busy. The management have managed to pack a lot into a small package but it works. Fish is cooked very well, with excellent desserts.

As ever Penk's was close to being absolutely wonderful but was maddeningly unable to deliver 100%. This time the problem was "a deep-fat fryer crisis" which meant a very very long wait for our ribeye and chips, which in turn meant we got through more...More

It was awful!! and we were upset for the owner, because the food and the service were both bad, and the dining room was dirty. We looked over and saw someone emptying a bin in the corner, not the sort of thing you want to...More
