Hi everyone.

As from today (24/09/2020) on arrival you will now need to use your phone to scan the NHS QR code for test & trace.

Firstly you need to have the NHS COVID 19 app' on your phone, (best to do this now if you can, if not, we can help you to do this when you come in). All hospitality venues, hairdressers, pubs, clubs etc, are using the same app' from today.

If you do not have a smart phone, we can still take your details using pen & paper.

Thank you for your continued support.
Bev & Bob.


Bob and Bev welcome you the the all new Penny Farthing website.

The Penny Farthing has been voted Bexley CAMRA PUB OF THE YEAR 2019 A BIG thank you to all members who voted for us. We must be doing something right, THANK YOU to ALL OF OUR CUSTOMERS for your continued support.

Slide shows af the 2016 and 2017 anniversary parties are available below.

Opened on 11th September 2014 the Penny Farthing is a Micro Pub it is a small venue which used to be, at one time, a bicycle shop. The Penny Farthing specialises in Real Ale served direct from the cask, we do not sell lagers or spirits. We do not have tv's, gaming machines or food, just good company, good conversation, good ale, cider, wine and soft drinks.

You can use your phone for Emailing and Facebook-ing but for phone calls you must leave the building. If yout phone rings inside it'll be a small fine to be donated to a local charity.

On this site you will find all the sevices that we have to offer, product sales, special offers, quiz nights and any special events that we are organising.

You can contact Bob and Bev by using the E-mail link. There is a direct link to the Penny Farthing Facebook page on the right.

This site works fine in ALL browsers but it has not been optimised for mobile phones or tablets but it should still work on them okay. I've just checked on a mobile phone and this site works fine but the links (on the right) are a little small. I will sort that later to make it more useable on mobiles.
