There are so many amazing restaurants in Bermuda, we were sorry we wasted a dinner here. The appetizers were typical pub fare, deep fried. We didn't order any "authentic" pub food which I believe is where all the good reviews come from. My husband had the fish & chips which he said were good. My daughters & I ordered a... More

My wife and I stopped into the Hog Penny when we were in Hamilton. It was mainly for a drink and some appetizers. I got the fish chowder... It was really good. I try to sample fish chowder at every restaurant when I got to Bermuda, and this was in the top 3 (I try a lot). The restaurant was... More

The welcome is warm. This time, I had lobster cakes followed by a spinach salad. My lunch companion had grouper seasoned with black... More

While on my honeymoon, my fiance and I had lunch at Hog Penny. It as a very small, cozy pub with a relaxing atmosphere. Oddly enough, it actually felt like the pub filmed in the movie, Inglorious Basterds. Anyhow, we ordered several beers and some sandwiches. I had the veggie sandwich. It was alright, but all the veggies tasted like... More

This does have a great English Pub atmosphere. Food was so-so. Service? When we came in, the hostess asked how many, then pointed to our choices of tables! She did not walk us to the table, rather she let us know if we were getting "warmer, warmer" as we approached a table that was available! What a hoot! We only... More

Hog Penny is akin to a nice pub that you would get in towns in the UK. The finish is wood panelling and low ambient lighting which makes a nice atmosphere. The only downside is that tables are kept quite close together so in busier times you starting to get piled up on top of one another. Not ideal for... More

We ate here twice. I had the prime rib (which was excellent) and the sausage and mash which was very good. My husband went for the Rock fish both times and loved it. We also popped in a couple of lunchtimes and had the garlic shrimp appetizer which is superb! Its very small, but the staff are great - down... More

Service was polite but not friendly. Fish chowder was not as good as Wahoo in St George. Seemed they were in a hurry for us to leave. Other places we ate and Bermudans in general were very friendly.

Dinner and beer in a super old pub in Hamilton that had been highly recommended by colleagues - and I can understand why. The pub is in a side street off Front Street and has an olde-worlde charm about it even though it's only been open since 1957. Apparently the pub in the Cheers! tv show was inspired by the... More
