Good mother's day venue

3 of us went for lunch food was terrific and would recommend to anyone. Slight problem with service of one dessert on this busy Sunday and immediately the cost of the dessert was taken from the bill. All a good experience would go again and would recommend.

We visited here March 2014 & had the most amazing SUnday roast so couldn't wait to go back. March 2015 - food was decidedly average. I ordered ham, egg and chips. I was expecting slices of cold ham and got a piece of overcooked gammon smothered in honey! The eggs had been cooked in a pan that had previously cooked... More

Went for a valentines meal with the wife, the menu had very little choice so I opted for the sirloin steak...very disappointing..a very small tough steak, half a tomato (the stalk side) a teaspoon on mushrooms and a very small bit of batter which I think was the onion rings, although there was only one and it was not a...

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
