Quick business lunch

I popped into Wig & Pen for a quick lunch. The service was very fast and friendly. The food was average value but pleasant enough and I would return if in the area.

My husband and I had lunch at the Wig and Pen about 2 weeks ago. We were so disappointed! We had been here previously, possibly 2/3 years ago, and found it to be excellent. We had the burger (oh so average) and the hand cut chips definitely were not! Atmosphere good and the boy who was taking orders and delivering... More

Sauces and dips were the cheap ones you get in a chippy, no fresh tartar sauce/relishes or sauces offered. Fish was average. From the menus description of... More

These guys know how to keep and serve beer. Always a variety of beers on offer and until 31st extra choice as part of the Ale Festival. Get yourselves down there! thoroughly recommended.

We came, we drank and we nibbled. It was great. Not too busy but enough people to create a warm atmosphere. Good selection of real ales and great tasting board.lovely old building tucked away behind the cathedral which is well worth a visit

Came to Norwich for a charity football match and wanted somewhere to have lunch after a morning's sightseeing. Decided to book here on the strength of various reviews and were not disappointed. Booking advisable because the interior is very small, with a lovely view of the Cathedral spire. Friendly, fun, efficient and polite staff, good range of very well kept... More

Had a couple of beers both recommended by a bar man that knew his stuff. Sat outside in the yard with views of the cathedral watching the world go by.

Excellent fish finger sandwich for lunch served with a friendly smile. Staff helpful and attentive but not overly so. Highly recommended.
