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.

Please update your communication skills. Booked a Birthday celebration meal for the 7th August, got a confirmation email and a reminder for reservation. You are NOT open! Very disappointed. Don’t take bookings if your not even open. Won’t be joining you soon

Waited to order drinks then asked again for wine. After we started eating and had been told the bread with balsamic didn't come with balsamic, we were told the wine we wanted wasn't available. Several other menu items were also unavailable and this was only made clear after we'd ordered them. When asking for a drink later, had to guess what the options were since a drinks menu was not then provided. Overall, very disappointing.

All was fine, very pleasant lunch with colleagues. There seemed no real need to book, as it wasn't too busy.

The Pen Factory is a place to which I return regularly. The food and choice of food is always of a high standard. The staff are courteous, friendly, informed and welcoming. I feel it really comes into its own during the winter months, with the log fire and twinkling fairy lights, but the summer months and the beer garden are also a draw! I always recommend the Pen Factory to friends.

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...
