I used to really like this place ten or so years ago. Overall I like the ambiance, dark and pubby HOWEVER they still allow smoking- blech. For that alone, I probably wonít go back. Service has always been solid. Standard pub selection, I almost went with a mixed drink, but settled on a Guiness. Prices are average. Pub grub food wasnít bad.

Very unique place with great ambiance and generally very friendly staff. A decent variety of European beer. Not really sure why, but sometimes there is a funky smell to the place. Food is hit or miss and a bit overpriced, but there isnít a better place to watch soccer (football) in Richmond. Trivia nights are fun as well.

The ambiance at Penny Lane is unmatched by any other bar or restaurant in Richmond. Period. Beer selection is a case of quality over quantity. Breakfast is excellent, especially when paired with a Half and Half and World Cup soccer

This is unique place in Richmond. An English pub in downtown Richmond. I was there with a friend form Denver to watch the Champions League Finals on May 28. The place was empty 2 hours prior to the match. At game time the stout was flowing and the bar was 3 deep. They have a few Irishales and 6 English and Scotish ales. The food was good, but maybe a little high. The atmosphere was outstanding.

Only Brits do a British pub properly, and this Scouse haven was like being back in Blighy.

What brings you to Penny Lane is the old Enlish pub vibe. Drinking a pint and watching the football (Uk version). The bartenders and staff are seasoned vets of the pub scene and know how to sling the beer.

A real find for anyone seeking Fullerís Porter, which is plentiful at the Penny Lane. A comfortable (maybe too cute for itís own good) British pub located downtown. Small and dim bar area downstairs with additional space above. The place is bedecked with scads of Beatles memorabilia as well. Great bangers and mash makes everything great. Save the airfare to Liverpool; just go to the corner of Franklin and 4th.

Good restaurant. The food is a bit of a gouge, but there are a good selection of English draughts that are rarer at other bars. The trivia nights can be absolutely hilarious, and the outdoor patio is really nice.

Penny Lane is a great little pub in downtown Richmond to go to for an English beer, to catch a football match, or to play trivia on certain nights of the week. The owner is great and the family-owned restuarant has a great selection of food and great service. Recommend the fish and chips.

Where else can you go in the area to get this kind of atmosphere with a real English beer selection? Unfortunately, I havenít had the food yet. I loved it and will be back. Warning: too much Liverpool paraphernalia, the upstairs loo smells of piss, and you may not want to leave.
