Last night, I just could not be bothered to cook. I’d seen on social media some tasty looking food boxes on Ashby based Indian takeaway “Miah’s Kitchen”, which I kept meaning to try. So last night was the night.

Food Review // The Penny Bank


Value for money is lower simply because some local takeaways offer a slightly bigger portion for the price. But the food was delicious, hot and arrived on time.

We were invited to try the brand new dining experience at The Penny Bank on Scunthorpe High Street.

Town Centre pub launches a surprising food menu

Town centre pub, The Penny Bank have announced that as of this weekend (Saturday 8th Feb) they will be launching a brand new service….food!

It’s been years since the pub last offered dining, under the former name “The Mint”.

What would you perhaps expect from food at a small town centre pub?..well whatever you were expecting, scrap that because they’ve surprised the public with quite an extensive and different menu.

The pub have employed an experienced full time chef, who has previously worked at places such as, The Shires in Gainsthorpe. The chef has created this menu with a passion for food and customers new and old.

The management and staff at The Penny Bank are very excited to be able to now offer their customers a dining experience, which involved a brand new upstairs kitchen and extensive staff training. There will be a breakfast & brunch menu, main menu, desserts menu and a full kids menu.

Most ingredients have been locally sourced, where possible. Supporting Scunthorpe suppliers and traders, whilst creating delicious home cooked meals. The price is obviously a little higher than your average chain pub grub, but The Penny Bank is an independent Freehouse and is the only pub that owners, Portcullis Pub Co own at present. The food will be freshly prepared and the most importantly, the chips aren’t frozen!

The Sunday menu will not be your traditional sunday dinner and will instead be SUNDAY BRUNCH served from 10am until 5pm. If you do decide to pop in for a Sunday Brunch there’s a bonus of free live music every Sunday from 6:30pm. Just enough time to let your food settle before having a dance.

Dining will take place on the two raised areas, either side of the pub. So if you’ve not been for a while give it a try and let us know what you think.

Food starts on Saturday 8th Feb and the service times are as below.

9am-12pm Breakfast & Brunch
12pm-2:30pm -Lunch
6pm-9pm – Dining

160 High Street, Scunthorpe

Food Review // Legends “All You Can Eat Pizza” Cleethorpes

At the weekend we were in Cleethorpes for the “Festival Of The Sky” so decided to try out the new “All You Can Eat” stone baked Pizza and Chips.

It’s new to the seafront and has been set up in the former Legends nightclub, just above the main arcade row. From the outside it could be quite easily missed if it weren’t for the large pizza and chips signage.
