It’s bye again, but we’ll be back for December…

It is with great sadness but in full compliance with recent Government legislation designed to slow the spread of Covid-19 that we will be closing our doors at 10pm on Wednesday 4th November. We are expecting to be able to re-open on Wednesday 2nd December.

Since re-opening in July we have complied with all Government trading guidelines and as a result have provided a safe environment for both our staff and customers. Rest assured that when we are allowed to re-open that we will continue to ensure that The Bunpenny remains a safe environment for all of us. We will continue with our rigorous cleaning regimes, we will continue to observe hand washing protocols, we will continue to use table ordering and/or our online ordering system, we will continue to take payment by card whenever possible, we will continue to provide table service only, we will continue to take contact details for track and trace and we will continue to use solid screens to protect customers and to separate tables.

We will be ready to welcome you back.

Welcome to the Bun Penny

The Bun Penny occupies a prominent position on the road into Lee on the Solent and is only a short walk from the main street and the beach. Originally a farm house and then a coaching inn, this centuries old building has all the charm and character you would expect from a building of its age. The Bun Penny is now a classic English country pub which benefits from a large patio at the front and an extensive back garden ideal for soaking up the sun whilst in cooler months there are real fires and lots of cosy corners inside

We are particularly proud of our food which is freshly prepared and locally sourced. The menu changes to reflect seasonal availability and there is a Specials Board where we can offer rarer treats.With a wealth of interior space, The Bun Penny can cater for large parties and menus can be created to suit your celebration and pocket.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

The main menu is changed seasonally and in addition, there is a daily specials board that incorporates fresh fish. Our menu offers the best of local and seasonal produce. There is also a Children’s menu and some of the main dishes are also available in smaller portions.

Great food, great service!

"We booked a table for a small group of friends and had a great evening. It was the first time I have been to The Bun Penny and it did not disappoint. There is a good selection on the menu, plus the specials, so overall plenty of choice for all tastes and some creative dishes. Overall very impressed!"

Varied menu. Excellent food

"Visited one evening and enjoyed it so much, returned the next day. The menu is extensive and includes everything from tapas style starters, sandwiches to fillet steak. The staff are solicitous and clearly enjoy working there. Even though it is a local pub, we did not feel uncomfortable; quite the opposite. Will certainly return if in the area again."
