What’s The Pen Factory about?

Replacing the old Everyman Bistro on Hope Street, The Pen Factory has been doing great things these past few years. Created by culinary entrepreneur Paddy Byrne, its name is a nod to the Lang Pen Company who operated there in the late 1800s and it’s one for the connoisseurs — without being pretentious.

The Pen Factory has a relaxed informal atmosphere and a contemporary industrial style, tucked away below the hustle and bustle of Hope Street and with a beautiful hidden garden. Included in the Hardens restaurant guide three years running along with the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and with a mention in the BBC Good Food Guide, it’s highly respected and receives top reviews.
