“Always good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Good, above average pub grub with classic Bangers and Mash, Cottage Pie, etc. Beer kept in good condition and service is friendly. Good resting place, never seems to be any hustle and bustle. Just like it used to be years ago.

“Bit Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

We were told enthusiastically to eat here but were disappointed. I had the pulled pork which was very dry and thinly flavoured. When the French fries are the tastiest thing on your plate then something is amiss. It's a great location but seems a bit claustrophobic -- tiny space, tiny tables, thin aisles. Definitely not for groups larger than 4.

“Decidedly high-class pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Stumbled into this pub from a cool rain, and were pleased with the warm tavern-like atmosphere. We both had seafood specials: a tender, rum-infused rockfish and a slightly overdone wahoo. The mashed potatoes were great comfort food. He tasted a local craft beer that was "just OK," while I tried the house special Dark & Stormy "Hogito."
Pro: Loved the free 2 hours of WiFi.
The Hog Penny appears to be one of a chain of several good pub/restaurants on the island.

“Nice old tavern, good food and drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

Afternoon stop with a group of 8 was easily accommodated in this little tavern. Our server was great, the food was very good; usual tavern options in the bar area, and the drink menu was good. Not terribly pricey for Bermuda. Atmosphere was nice. Stop in for a drink or a bite.

“Great pub and restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

We went here twice during our week in Bermuda, just like an English pub, great atmosphere, food and drinks. The loaded Nachos were amazing enough for four people, we had the Fish chowder in my estimation the best we had on the island, it was a little chunkier, delicious. Very busy at lunch time which is a good sign, very friendly and welcoming, say Hi to our server Stacy she was amazing.
