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.
This restaurant is a little different from the others. With good food and good service, want more could you want
Delicious food and drink, friendly service in a lively and relaxed setting
Brilliant as always, thank you
Always a favourite place; never disappoints!
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
As always a lovely pre concert meal !
Varied menu, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan choices. Decent portions and great taste combinations.
Excellent service and food. Relaxed atmosphere. Really enjoyed our visit.
Great place for drinks and food.
Superb as ever!
Just consistently wonderful. Thank goodness for the Pen Factory.
Amazing food and attentive staff, thank you so much 😊
Unusual and informal surroundings. Friendly, professional and attentive staff. Exceptional food at reasonable prices made this a great place to choose to eat before a show.
Really enjoyed the experience. Food very good and great choice of beers.
Great service, great food, lovely wine, really accommodating. Thank you again!
Really lovely atmosphere and great service. The staff were so friendly and accommodating.Recommendations from the staff over portions and amounts to order were spot on. Would recommend to others.
Great evening - very attentive and friendly staff. Struggling to find anything negative - maybe just mention that the we thought the fries would be halloumi with polenta outer coating rather than mostly just polenta.
The fried chicken hot sauce and slaw was very disappointing. The slaw was inedible- I should have sent it back.
Staff we so friendly and helpful as we had 3 small children with us. Great food and lovely atmosphere!
Server Charlie was again a star!
Really excellent early evening supper. Loved the casual atmosphere and the friendly staff. Food was great, good value for money. Thank you. We’ll be back xx
Staff were brilliant, so polite and friendly. Jim
Thanks to the team for looking after us on the evening, a lovely night.
