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.

Never a disappointment, this pub is a short distance from the law courts. Tonight was remarkably quiet, even for a Tuesday. Good for my companion and myself to catch up on our news. We both had the skewered prawns for starter, my friend said his steak was cooked to perfection. My steak and ale pie was just how I like... More

Stopped off in here to tick off another unit in the Good Pub Guide. The beer choice and quality was good, but the food ordered was poor and wasn't quickly delivered. Ordered crab cakes. These turned out a bit soggy and didn't taste much of crab. They had what I thought was a lime flavour which hid what we were... More

Yes there's work going on in the area but this can't be helped and is still nice to see the cobbled streets. Was lovely to have a drink. Starters were delicious. Main course was slightly let down by the odd thing.... More

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

Norfolk Ale Battered Cod Tail Fillet – mushy peas & proper chips Chips were frozen, not sure where 'proper' came from, obviously meant they were real potato... Mushy peas out of a tin. 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
