“Great food at a price!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

The Hog Penny certainly has a cosy and intimate atmosphere. It is quite small, so subsequently the dining tables are quite close together. Although it does have the ambience of an English pub the food is far better than pub grub! The meal we had was very nice and the quality was excellent. It was obvious on tasting that it was fresh and not the usual 'deep fried' or 'microwaved' fast food usually associated with pubs. The wine list was quite a bit expensive and the cheaper house wines were off the menu, so the final bill was a a bit more expensive than usual. So to summarise: if you want a great meal (of a standard associated usually associated with a restaurant), but prefer 'no frills' and eating in a pub, then this is the place for you!

“Decent Lunch”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Lunch was good. My husband thought his chicken sandwich was one of the best he's ever had. It had a tabasco type sauce. My sister had a shaved prime rib n cheese sandwich and I had the fried calamari. The calamari was slightly overcooked. The sauce with the calamari was very tasty. Like everywhere we went in Bermuda the service was super friendly.

“Good pub food”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Great pub atmosphere, with a pretty extensive menu. Did not get to stay for live music, but several locals mentioned this pub as a great place for entertainment.

Stopped by for a late lunch. The lobster cakes were great. Cool mixed drinks on the menu. Amazing service. Associated with Barracuda Grill upstairs.
