About The Pen Factory
Tucked away below the hustle and bustle of Hope Street, The Pen Factory is the reincarnation of the original Everyman Bistro. Culinary entrepreneur Paddy Byrne has recreated the same relaxed armosphere in this new home just next door, and customers can expect the same friendly welcome and quality food and drink.
With a wide selection of spirits, wines and beers on the menu and small plates perfect for sharing customers can enjoy a drink or a bite to eat in the buzz of our subterranean home or in the quiet oasis of our garden.
Taking inspiration from the Lang Pen Company which operated here in the late 1800's, we're building on our own Hope Street history and writing the next chapter at The Pen Factory.
Food better than ever/atmosphere best it’s been since lockdown/ service good enough but seemed a little understaffed for the numbers in(understandable). Still the best, unheralded, bar in Liverpool for food. Feel really sorry for them having to shutdown again. Use this place a fair bit and will miss the food. Let’s hope it’s opened up again soon.
Always a pleasure. Pen Factory is a perfect place to relax, eat good food and chat to friends. Staff are attentive and friendly.
Food and service is always excellent. Even with social distancing rules this was also good.
Clear markings on the menu for gluten-free options would be appreciated (and more GF please!). Warm atmosphere and friendly staff.
Excellent food and great service, as always! Absolute pleasure to visit.
I was there on a Sunday and, despite the food was good, It was quite expensive. I think It is a bit overpriced. I have also been on a regular day and I enjoyed It much more then, and for a lower price
We visited The Pen Factory after attending a performance at The Philharmonic Hall. The food was excellent, we both had belly pork roast dinner; the atmosphere was cosy, we sat near the fire; service was friendly and efficient; and drinks were well served (hubby knows a well kept real ale 😉) Perfect date day!
Great place to meet and eat and sup fine ale.
The most cheerful place to eat and drink in Liverpool.
Usual High standards affected by current situation. Lacked atmosphere for this reason
Perfect lunch. Food delicious and really friendly staff, knowledgeable on wine and offered a taste between a couple of options.
Poor food selection, no music, despite staff trying to be cheerful the restaurant was very drab and sterile
Booked a table for 2 about a week before. When we arrived the atmosphere was great, despite the socially-distanced and covid precautions in place. The staff were friendly, helpful, and also disappointed that we had decided not to come along with the puppy (too young and excitable!). Although we had been asked online to vacate our table after an hour, we were not pressured to go and, hence, we bought that second bottle of wine!! Would certainly recommend to our friends. The food was exceptional and we were happy to pay that bit extra for the quality even though the portions are not as big as in some other restaurants. But we weren't looking for an "all you can eat" experience. We were very happy bunnies!
great food and service as always
Excellent food and drinks particularly the Cask beers, Service is efficent and friendly, Wonderful garden, well worth a visit or two!!
My favourite space in the city. Love the food, atmosphere and staff.
Usual - Food, drink and service great. Covid causing a lack of atmosphere but thats to be expected. Best bar/restaurant in town
Fantastic place, great atmosphere, staff really helpful and friendly, one of my favourite places to eat and drink in Liverpool
Absolutely fantastic experience. I couldn't say a bad word about anything. The staff were amazing & the food was unbelievable. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough!!
Wonderful in every way. Loved it!
Had a wonderful meal, service and food first class. Will definitely be returning. Become our favourite restaurant in Liverpool.
Great atmosphere, lovely staff. One of my favourite places to be in Liverpool
Really enjoyed our afternoon at the Pen Factory. We are regulars for drinks but it was our first time having food too. Both our meals were amazing, so we even stayed for a dessert. The staff were all very friendly as well as accommodating to our pup. Thanks so much, we'll be back again soon!
So great to be back. First choice for our first night out. Great food, great service, fab staff Thank you Paddy and Co
