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

Had been for a bit of a walk around Norwich and popped in to the Wig and Pen for lunch. Able to sit outside in the sunshine in the shadow of the Cathedral. Had a light lunch - very good quality and not a long wait. Staff were friendly and helpful. Nice range ofreal ales available.

If you're looking for somewhere a little quieter, but still serving a good selection of real beer with good food, follow me to this pub, where, like me you'll find the staff friednly and welcomeing. A bit out of the center of town, but worth the effort to find.
