Nice place for a relaxing evening. This place is visited by the locals / expats, as well as the tourists. I ate here with some friends that live on the island. Combine typical bar food with a few surprises and you have the Hog Penny. They Indian curries are WONDERFUL -- if you ask for spicy, be prepared -- it will be! The Tuna Steak with risotto was also amazing, as was the steak. Nice place for mid-priced (for Bermuda) food. It is a bar atmosphere, so tables are a little close together, but didn't feel that crowded. Service was good. I'd definitely go back!

We stopped in for lunch which even for a cheap $44 wasn't great. We ordered a coke (which was flat) and a guiness which was good. The service was excellent, very attentive waitress who was smily and polite but we were crushed into a corner, where I was sat closer to another patron, than my partner!
The food was not great. Tuna sandwich was not good tuna, all wet and sloppy, i've had better from a tin at home and the steak was grey and the onions nor cooked or crunchy. The chips were good and we had plenty of food, just wasn't great quality. We left feeling dissapointed and probably would only go there for drinks, if anything at all.

Just a few steps off the main drag (Front Street) in Hamilton, the Hog Penny is a good, old-fashioned pub. They say it was inspiration for the "Cheers" bar, in Boston. It was very cheerful and the service was great.

Don't-miss- items on the menu are:

The Fish Chowder (with a shot of Goslings Black Rum dolloped into your bowl at your table) and the

Mussels, which were steamed in a broth of leeks, shallots, sun-dried tomatoes, white whine AND cream. WOW. Use the bread to sop up this delicious sauce and you'll leave a happy clam.

We also had a couple bottles of a dark Samuel Smith beer that is some of the most delicious beer I've ever tasted. Those Brits sure do know how to brew beer!

The Hog Penny in bermuda has to be one of the best resaurants in the world if only for the vanllia cheese cake.
In fact every meal i had in there was super and the staff are very helpful.
