I have eaten here a few times (I work nearby) and never been hugely impressed, but today took the biscuit. Arrived with half a dozen colleagues, to be told there was a 20 minute wait for chips. On realising that the 'Kevin Bacon' burger came with fries, I asked for it without chips (as I didn't have 20 mins to... More

I met a work colleague for a working lunch today, he suggested Penelopes Kitchen which is adjacent to the ITV offices where he works. The service was friendly, there was a queue at the counter but we were served within a minute or 2, the food was delivered quickly and was tasty. We had the peri chicken salad and a... More

Really enjoyed the food here today. I had the lamb kebab and my friend has the Mac and cheese. Overall, we both left full, but I'm not 100% sure it was value for money. The kebab was heavily subsidised with fries (at £1 extra cost) but if I didn't have the fries, my review may have been a little skewed.... More

Those considering Penelope's Kitchen need to manage expectations. A hidden gem of a place in Salford Quays/media City. This place is only open weekdays, this clearly indicates it's main focus of trade...namely those who work in Media City or live in the apartments there. This isn't meant as a derogatory comment (I live nearby), but it does offer reasoning for... More

This is fine if you don't have any particular healthy eating in mind: there are very poor choices for anyone who doesn't want food high in fat. They advertise 'free range beef'. What?! Cows are always reared outdoors in the UK. This is bordering on mis-information. I can't believe they can get away with this! No bagels, considering this a... More

We went for pancakes on pancake day but they had run out! Fortunately the alternatives were delicious, freshly cooked and sweet potato chips to die for!

Met a friend here for breakfast and had the delicious Danny Radman (bacon pancakes) a little tucked away but worth it. Really sweet place with friendly staff.

Visited with one of my work colleagues and what a great place, very cute, Lovely staff and the food was high quality considering it isn't expensive. My burger came with free fries which was a welcomed surprise and we really liked that it has a open plan kitchen so you can watch your food being made. Love the free refill... More

Went to Penelopes for lunch with a group of work friends and was unfortunately really disappointed!!! It always looks to be busy so I expected the food to be good and the place to be nice.

Hi Sarah, Thank you for your feedback, We're so sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your lunch and I can assure you that this isn't our normal standard of service, We are one of the busiest food outlets at media city and we certainly didn't get this way by serving up below standard food.
