I was impressed by the food on a recent trip to Bun Penny but i must say that perhaps naively i was dismissive of this place based on their website and online menu. It doesn't give off the message that this is a 'gastro pub'...More

The Bun Penny is an old, historic place just outside Lee's shopping centre. And it's very popular - it was full, and the wait for drinks was long, while the wait for food was longer. The garlic ciabatta was good. The fish dishes could have...More

Brilliant pub with a really nice refurbished restaurant. Very busy Friday nights for the meat raffle. Go there all the time and well worth a visit

We wish we'd read the other negative reviews before going here on Monday 23rd October, but as we'd always had good service for years, we had no reason to. When we arrived, at about 6.15pm we ordered drinks at the bar and were told to...More

All we wanted was a nice bite for lunch and a couple of drinks. The bar staff were disinterested, the waitress rude and everything was made out to be pretty hard work. The quality of the food was questionable, ingredients lacked quality. All in all...More

We arrived at 6pm, and the restaurant was empty - worrying! But within 30 minutes quite crowded. Delicious food with a FREE bottle of wine. We had a sea bass fillets and a calves liver meal. Excellently presented, tasty and good value.

Pop in most Fridays for catch up with family who live just round the corner, all love the meat raffle and very often end up having something to eat in bar or restaurant. Friendly staff in bar and restaurant plus good food, what more could...More

Hi I do not work there but my daughter is a veggie and she enjoys the nut roast and has had the stuffed pepper roast too. I highly rate The Bun Penny. I hope you enjoy your visit.

My daughter is a vegetarian and we eat there together all the time. If you ask the staff there what is veggie on the menu they have always tried to do whatever she wanted. They are very helpful and even made a tomato sauce... More
