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 Bun Penny Team

Brilliant Birthday

"My family took me out for my birthday dinner, the staff were polite and courteous, gave us additional time to look at the menu as we couldn't decide what we wanted! The food was fresh and hot plus served on hot plates which makes a difference and the food presentation and portion size was perfect!"

A most pleasant lunch venue

"I was visiting clients nearby and we chose this venue to go for lunch and have to say I have no complaints at all. The staff were very friendly and the service was good as was the food, the pork belly was excellent and would gladly choose that again when I return and do hope it is still on the menu."

Best pub food I’ve had

"This was my first time at the Bun Penney and definitely won’t be our last! We were lucky enough to have some sunshine so we sat in their lovely clean spacious garden. I had a glass of wine and my husband had a pint which he said was really tasty and fresh. We then ordered food, he had the gammon and eggs (great size portion and really tasty) I ordered the crispy beef noodles (these were the main reason for my review) I think I’d go as far as saying this was the BEST PUB FOOD IVE EVER HAD! They could of been served at a great Thai restaurant!
Can’t wait to return to order them again.
Friendly helpful staff and all round 5* from me"

Tasty meal in nice surroundings.

"We booked a table for a Saturday night. We were promptly shown to our table and chose from the varied food menu. The starters were mouth watering, which was a good omen. For the main, I chose the rump steak, which was cooked to perfection, and the others had various other choices that were equally as tasty. The waitress service was excellent, being both attentive and friendly, making us feel at home. The house wines that we ordered were of a good standard. We will most definitely return soon, especially as we have recently now moved half a mile away from the pub!"

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."


Last of the Summer Wine Club

"A very popular pub with very helpful staff The meals were all served at the same time as there were 12 people in the party. A good selection of meals with the choice of small or large portions."
