Pennyfarthing - a good place to eat
We went to the Pennyfarthing for a casual dinner before heaing to the local theatre. We gave ourselves plenty of time because we had to drive to the theatre afterwards. I have been to the pub several times before, but this was the quietest it had been. Our experience there was pleasant. The food came in a reasonable amount of time, which left us plenty of time to enjoy it before we had to head out. My dinner companions tried the deep fried pickles (which sound horrible to me) and they loved them. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and said that they would have it again. Our dinner at the Pennyfarthing started our evening off in good style. That and a good play made for a wonderful evening.

Panny Farthing Pub - Oak Bay, BC
The Penny Farthing pub is one of our favorites. It's more of an up-scale pub with great food and a great line up of draught beers. The atmosphere is great. It's a super place to meet up with friends for a drink and good food.

We were three ladies and had
We were three ladies and had a beautiful, friendly server (Laura 22) who was very helpful identifying gluten-free menu items for one of my guests. They thoroughly enjoyed their lunch and we had a great time. However, I ordered the mac and cheese and it was very, very dry so I took it home half eaten and added melted cheese and it was delicious. I think there were just too many crumbs on it.
Otherwise, the beer was wonderfully ice cold and the server kept coming back to see if everything was ok.

Our favourite pub
We discovered Penny Farthing Pub just by chance when we moved here many years ago and we have been dining/lunching there often ever since. The food has been consistently good and affordable. Found the service always pleasant.

Convenient Luncheon Location.
We were meeting friends who had appointments to follow and were thus favourably impressed with the service and food. Our server Brittany, was both pleasant, polite and efficient. A very nice young lady who contributed to our overall very positive impression of your establishment.
Serving of wine could use a touch of experience.
We look forward to our next visit.

The Penny Farthing was a great place for my husbands birthday. We were a small group. Their was live music - not too noisy. there was a great bar menu. Great authentic ambiance - old English pub...the menu reflected it as well.

This restaurant has excellent pub fare, with a different two for one special every day. The service is fast and friendly. The Penny farthing is one if the nicest places to have lunch in Oak Bay.
