We had lunch at Hogpenny and the food and service was great. We ended up returning for a few drinks later in the week after a little shopping. We encountered a great bartender, Steve, who was the perfect host. Because of him we ended up...coming back several more times. We were pleasantly surprised with the great rum swizzles that he made. We are looking forward to our next visit when we return to Bermuda for our 6th time. Thanks for great memories.More

We loved this restaurant. Lots of character, great air conditioning, which you really appreciate after walking up and down the hills in Hamilton. The food was delicious, and the service was great. (we recommend Shamairah, who was our server) Also, the beer was cold and...delicious.More

Great for drinks and atmosphere of old pub style. Staff friendly and attentive. Unfortunately the food was not great. The Bermuda fish chowder was just okay but the chicken pot pie was awful! Dry and lumps of over cooked chicken wrapped in soggy pastry dough....Would not rush back.More

Ate here 3 times, 2 lunches and 1 evening meal. The whole place is 'historical' and interesting. The staff are excellent. Very varied large menu. Chef/chefs are skilled and must be a reliable team. The chef who cooked the ribeye steak for the roast meal...knows how to cook a very nice piece of meat - excellent. Thanks Hog Penny. Will return.More

Went for lunch on a reasonably warm January afternoon as they had ample outdoor seating. Between us we had a burger and their beer cheese fries and the sizzling prawns. All were really good a the beer cheese was really tasty, and quite a different...flavour to many cheesy fries. Service was pretty quick and attentive despite one individual looking after all the outdoor tables alone. Would recommend for a lunchtime in Hamilton!More

The Hog Penny is like a typical very old English pub. Friendly and nice atmosphere. Hard to believe you’re not in London!

We have dined at the Hog Penny for over 50 years. It is a must lunch stop on every visit and we visit at least once a year and generally twice. Covid has interrupted this for the last two years but today we returned. We...were thrilled to see that it has not changed one bit. It looks the same as it did the first time we came. Even the menu while updated somewhat still has many old favorites. And the winner - their Bermuda fish chowder. We actually think they started a pot in 1957 when they opened and just keep adding to it. I often order it in many restaurants on the island and theirs is absolutely the best. It is delicious and almost a stew it’s so packed with goodies. And the sherry peppers and dark rum are a must. All of the other menu options are as good as you can find in Bermuda. It is a must visit.More

Thank you Bermudaman for your half century of visits! You are the reason we love to do what we do.

One thing that’s not great about Bermuda is the high price of food so we were very pleasantly surprised to discover the special 3-course menu at Hog Penny. For $33 per person — a bargain by Bermuda standards — you choose a soup or salad,...a main course (we had snapper and beef Wellington, both excellent), and dessert. The restaurant’s historical decor was interesting and the service was great.More

I did not enjoy the food. I had fish and chips. The batter was fatty, the fish bland. The chips unappealing, the vegetables overdone. Service was good.

Great place to hang out after work with sumptuous food and friends staffs. I love their Burger and also the portion of nachos. A refreshing Banana Rama drink is one of our favorite.

A friend who has frequented Bermuda many times over 20 years recommended this. They were diligent with Covid protocol, requiring us to sign-in on a contact tracking roster . We had fish and chips and an apple/greens/grilled shrimp salad which were excellent. Very British-pub atmosphere...and lots of locals,which is always a good sign! Not a cheap eatery, but everything is expensive in Bermuda. Including on ale, lunch for two was $72 with tip.More

I had eaten here back in the mid nineties and had to revisit. The place looks just the same with all its charm intact. the food was still wonderful as were the drinks. The Chicken Pot Pie was really good and the leftovers made for...a tasty lunch the next day. Another day I had the fish & chips and pronounced them perfect. My friends had the bangers & mash, The Hog Penny Burger, The Bermuda Fish Chowder and the Bermuda Onion Soup. Not a complaint could be heard.More
