After reading the other reviews I decided that penny's was the place for us. The cafe is well placed and looks lovely from the outside, the tables are well laid out. We had decided before hand that we only wanted a salad after having such a big breakfast at our b&b so again influenced by the reviews went for a Dalesman salad. When it arrived I discovered that it wasn't a salad at al but about 4 slices of ham ( that was ok ) a pot of cheese a pot of fried cold onions a small amount of salad including the end of the cucumber! And some coleslaw. But the star of the show was a soggy warm pork pie! I asked for my porkpie to be swapped for a cold one.... My plate was taken away and bought back 5 mins later with the same porkpie missing a bite, I think they had just let it cool a bit! I pointed out that it was the same pork pie and was told that it had to be hot as it was microwaved from frozen!!!! I was somewhat shocked at this as penny's seem to go to great lengths to tell you about locally sourced food and own bakery ect and the bring out a frozen porkpie!!! I told the boy that I'd eat the 'salad' but he could take off the price for the pie. Most of the staff are kids one girl had lovely short hair I watched her touching it and swishing it about then serving cake. The older woman ( crurly hair) was rude and abrupt with us and nobody apologised that we had been served such rubbish!! I have learnt 2 things from this experiece 1 that trip advisor should not be taken as read and to when you are asked in Penny's if you would like a cup or a 'mug' they mean it quite literally you are a mug for eating there. Those salads cost us £6.95! What a joke!
