Visited here for a lunch with partner and kids. Ordered food and took over 40 minutes to come out. Chicken wings were revolting and asked for hot sauce for dipping and refused unless pay for it. Who pays for condiments? Not worth a visit.

We regularly visit for Sunday lunch every time it has been perfect, however the last two weeks the food has not been good. Last week the food was cold no Yorkshire puddings left and the previous week the Sunday roast had run out by 4.30.More

We are sorry your last 2 visits haven't been great. We cook all of our roasts fresh and unfortunately we can sell out. We order the same every week (increase during the colder months) it's just a pot luck as to how many people will...More

Our parking is a little sparse :( We can often look jam packed from the outside, but inside we can be ticking along nicely. We are glad you enjoy your visits and will see you again soon !

Seems like a good family pub, bit noisy for us but it is geared to families. Did not eat there but the food is very reasonable, there is also an outside area to sit but it is by the children's area, again a family pub...More

I have visited The Penny Farthing on several occasions with my family. The service was good, and the food was excellent. As a vegan, it was so nice to see something different on the menu other than the usual burger. Well worth a visit.
