Real Ale Ray left this review about Pen Factory

This pub always has a decent choice of cask ales and are always well kept. The two young barman are extremely passionate about the quality of their beers, which shows. The pub also serves food which is at a very high standard and not overpriced. Six pumps with four on serving Castle Rock In Bloom, Neptune Nelson Sails Again, Listers Best Bitter, Titanic Plum Porter. I enjoyed the Neptune and they were putting another beer on as we were leaving. This pub is close to the Philharmonic, so this is the better choice, unless you're sightseeing.

Difficult to find,down a flight of stairs the large glass door opens into a refectory area to the right with ranks of dining tables and a seating area to the left with large tables and metal chairs a bit like you might find at school.The ceiling is high and the flooring industrial but the long bar does indicate that this is more than an eatery although it doesn't have a traditional pub vibe.
I suppose you could call it a modern and trendy bar.There are 6 handpumps offering on my trip Five Points Pale,Moor Raw,Wild Beer Madagascar Milk Stout,Higsons Porter (NBSS 3.5) ,Mallinsons Mosaic and Amarillo (NBSS 4).That's a very decent line up for Liverpool City Centre with a mix of styles .There are also 4 genuine craft keg beers too.
I would certainly return,it deserves it's GBG listing and IMHO is one of the best ale houses in a City that can sometimes disappoint.

Brainy Pool left this review about The Pen Factory

this is indeed a bit of a strange one and very difficult to rate - basically a tapas/small plates restaurant and set out for this in canteen style. Lots of CAMRA types were in, obviously for the beer and not the food, but there were also a lot of couples and groups enjoying expensive nights out. Real ales were three from Five Points and three from Kirkstall, and my porter from the latter was beautiful. I’ll make a note to come back for a meal but as a pub i’m not so sure.
