Great Food & Drink

A great selection of freshly prepared, locally sourced dishes await you.

Served daily, our menus offer something from everyone – lighter lunches from noon together with hearty dishes in the evening.

Food allergies or special preferences? Let us know and we’ll do our very best to accommodate your requests. We offer a wide range of vegetarian dishes and a growing number of vegan options for you to choose from.

A children’s menu available throughout the week provides great food and smaller sized portions from our main menu, ideal for little ones.

As a pub in the heart of the community of Lee on the Solent, The Bun Penny is a natural choice for local business or family celebrations. From a special dinner with bespoke menu to buffets for anniversaries, birthdays or christenings, we have the space and experience to provide a memorable event.  Please talk to Helen to get some more ideas for your party.

Note: These menus are sample menus, and food options and prices may differ at any time.

Food aside, we’ve got a range of local ales, lagers, ciders & wine.

Whilst food is a big draw for many these days, we are a ‘real pub’, not a restaurant and drinkers are especially welcome.

We offer a wide range of quality beers and ciders. Three guest ales are always on the handpumps.

Our main suppliers are:

– Otter Brewery
– St Austell Brewery
– Island Brewery
– Goddards Brewery
– Irving Brewery
– Oakleaf Brewery
– White Horse Brewery
– Urban Brewery

Our cider is supplied by Westons. We have Stowford Press on draft and various traditional scrumpies as well as bottled ciders.

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."
