About us

The Penny Farthing Pub is a traditional British Pub in the heart of Aarau. It features a selection of the finest beers from Ireland and England, a finely selective offering of single malt whiskies from Scotland, some classic wines from California and food from all over the English-speaking world. Furthermore, The Penny is a hub of great activities and events: darts competitions, quiz nights, table football competitions, musical events, culinary specialties and of course, more important than anything else – some great conversation on the bar involving both Swiss and international clientele!!

The Penny Farthing is a concept that took its inspiration from an era of times gone by and not from a geographical standpoint. The Penny Farthing bicycle symbolizes the 1870’s, as a part of the Industrial Revolution. Imagine the working classes of Northern England during Victorian times. Picture all the decadence in those bustling workingmen clubs. Hail an establishment void of curtains and cushions and other showy fixtures, and a floor strewn with well-trodden sawdust across the front area of the bar.

However, today The Penny is a hustling, bustling, modern pub. It is a highly popular establishment, boasting a multitude of regular customers and most welcome visitors of all ages from around the world.
