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.

Good vegetarian choices on the menu all fully explained by the staff. The food was delicious and served promptly and hot. Our only problem is that my husband is a bit deaf and was unable to hear conversation due to the background noise. This is not the fault of The Pen Factory but did cause us a little inconvenience.

Lovely place, lovely staff, really tasty food but unfortunately a bit too pricey considering portion sizes. Honey chorizo were gorgeous though...

Atmosphere was superb, some of the dishes could have been a little better, charred lettuce was overcooked, however fried chicken with hot sauce and slaw was delicious. Service was a little slow at times but ad it was Saturday evening, only to be expected. Overall an excellent experience, great choice of drinks
