“Highly Recommended Eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Had a drink here while my friend from the USA who had both a drink plus soup. He said it was good. He has eaten here before on a pervious tour of this rather expensive island but makes sense when everything has to be imported into it. Wait staff is from around the world and I even met a female server from Vacouver, BC Canada. Stated she has worked here for several years and it is nor hard to get into this type of industy because of the nature of it. Low pay but tips make up a good part of their wages here. Good crowd of people within this eatery and music was rather lively from the entertainer. Expensive but everything on this island is expensive!

“Return over the years...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Return time & again over the years...'The Hog' is always reliable.
The service is friendly, and the food consistently good.
To 'roymogi' : Bermuda is a gourmet destination - like anywhere, it is relative to where you dine.
The "fish soup" as you call it, is Bermuda's famous Fish Chowder and is always great at Hog Penny.
To cybercsp : Hog Penny delivers on what it is - the traditional English-style pub (what other atmosphere were you expecting??)
To all, do try the chowder, the calamari, the curry!

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Bermuda is not particularly a gourmet destination, but Hog Penny, in the heart of Hamilton, stands out for excellent food, warm, friendly service, pleasant surroundings, and prices in line with much lesser island venues. I can especially recommend the fish soup (always say yes to the shots of rum and spice) and the prime rib.

“Friendly Pub, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Just returned from a cruise to Bermuda, stopped at the Hog Penny Pub on a recommendation. Had some apps and a steak sandwich - all were delicious! My sister had the seafood soup & loved it, I had the goat cheese appetizer which was hot and served with bread - to die for!!! The bartender as well as a few locals that were seated at the bar were very friendly. Can't wait to return!
