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.

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

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.
