Having visited the Wig and Pen during the summer, and being less than impressed, I was rather reserved about returning. However I would recommend The Wig and Pen to anyone, the service we received was very friendly yet non-intrusive, but the best part was the food. I had the BBQ Chicken Lasagne, which was delicious and I was allowed a... More

We visited on the Saturday before christmas, one of the busiest nights of the year I should imagine, yet our service was perfect. We were seen to regularly for more drinks, our food canes promptly and was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. I ordered fish with prosciutto mash potato and wanted the fish but not the meat and so... More

Please, please don't waste your hard earned cash going here. We went as a party of 6 for a family pre-Christmas dinner and had been looking forward to it for weeks. We pre-ordered our meals from the set menu. I have to say that when I originally saw the menu I was disappointed as there was very little choice but... More

We were really looking forward to a meal here with other family members for a pre-Christmas night out who we won’t be seeing over Christmas but we were so disappointed. The menu was the Christmas Menu and looked fine so we pre-booked our choices for the three course meal so they could be prepared for our booking but it was... More

I've been here a couple of times before. The food is really tasty and well presented. I had the Wig & Pen burger (the WigMac), among other things, and it was great. Only downside (really really minor!) the brioche bun it cam in could have been a little bigger. However, if you're in Truro I highly recommend the place!

We both had the Roast Beef lunch which we enjoyed. Lots of Beef served rare which is to our taste, lots of vegetables and 3 Roasties with Yorkshire pudding and gravy boat. Couple of pints of Tribute completed it for me an a couple of glasses of wine for my partner, served at our table by staff who are eager... More

lovely rare roast beef(can be cooked more if you prefer), with 6 different vegetables plus roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings. Gravy on the side. Really tasty and tender. Lovely staff, efficient service all for £9 a head.

The meal was first class I had the Hake which was delishous and my husband had a steak which he said was cooked to perfection and both were HOT.
