This pub is quite handy for the local courts and maybe the chef needs locking up! I had a curry Panini which was tasteless tinned goo. Very disappointed as the staff were friendly and they have a good selection of real ales , nice décor and a splattering of interesting locals

A lovely place to have a meal. It was a little bit cool outside so we ate inside. Very friendly & efficient staff.

Given how hard it can be to find good quality pub grub, I still go back fairly regularly, but it's not a place that you'd swap away from... More

We were looking for a simple meal, and found the Wig & Pen provided just what we were looking for. The service was prompt and efficient, and the food well prepared and tasty. We had the pork belly and red sea bass. We asked for extra gravy for the pork and this was provided without extra charge. Food and wine... More
