Friar Penketh

The Friar Penketh pub, located south of the town centre, is a popular establishment with a rich history. It is situated on the grounds of a 13th-century Augustinian friary, and its name is a tribute to a scholar referenced in Shakespeare's King Richard III. Patrons can glimpse a part of the original friary through a glass floor in the main bar area, adding a unique historical touch to the pub's ambiance. The Friar Penketh is renowned for its spaciousness and its extensive bar, which features three banks of handpumps offering a variety of beers. The pricing is in line with Wetherspoon's standard, making it an affordable place for beer enthusiasts. In addition to its drink offerings, the pub also serves food throughout the day, starting with breakfast from 8 am. This makes it a versatile destination for both early risers looking for a hearty breakfast and those seeking a relaxing spot to unwind later in the day. The combination of its historical charm, diverse menu, and affordable prices makes The Friar Penketh a beloved local haunt.
