4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Nice atmosphere - good beers, friendly service, good value and food very reasonable. Sandwiches looked great - veg fresh and not over cooked, and was pretty quick.

“Doorstop sandwiches!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Have eaten here a few times and always have the doorstop sandwiches, which are great value at under a fiver and the biggest sandwiches ever! Would particularly recommend the bacon and egg and chicken and bacon! The pub itself is a fabulous building with loads of historic features - low wooden beams and uneven floors which is very Norwich - also has large outside seating area with views of the cathedral. Other than the sandwiches, the rest of the menu seems quite pricey for a pub, but I haven't tried it so it could be amazing. Well worth stopping by if you are in the area!

“Lovely lunchtime experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

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.

“Great little find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Set near to the Cathedral and the City centre the Wig and Pen is a great place to stop for refreshment. A traditional English pub offering a good range of beers and other drinks it also has an extensive and good quality menu.
Whether you want a full meal od a more reserved light bite there is plenty of choice - I have to say the Sweet Chilli Goujons were particularly appetising with a crispy and delicious batter.
It has some parking immediately outside, pay and display, but several other car parks are available. An interesting feature is some old style Church Pew seating which is sure to appeal to American tourists I'd imagine.
Well worth searching out.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Another fantastic trip to the Wig & Pen, owned by a lovely couple I have had a chat to our the years of me visiting the pub. Everything you want when you walk in, table service, good quality and very well ranged food and also a fantastic range of fish dishes, which I think personally is always quiet hard to find. Defiantly advise anyone to go there and try it!
