I have a Pashley Sovereign Roadster with over 5K miles on it and had the same experience. There are two things that can cause this.

The two issues that can cause the noise you hear is a chain that needs tightening or the front bracket is loose. The chain is tightened by loosening the rear hub nuts and increasing tension on the chain. This is done one side at a time and then using pulling the front of the rear wheel towards the side with the loose nut. If the chain case is loose at the front you will need to open it and tighten the bottom bracket lock nut at the case bracket plate is held tight by the lock nut.
