Pleasant atmosphere, friendly helpful staff giving good service to compliment a decent food and beverage choice. A popular local town pub always a good sign.

This lovely little bar welcomed our dog in and we were able to try a cider or two before moving on to our dinner reservation. The bar staff were friendly and the one girl recommended a cider for me to try which I loved. Great!

Saturday last (11th June) I met my nephew at The Wig & Pen for a couple of drinks and a bite to eat before going on to watch Bill Bailey at the Hall for Cornwall. We were made very welcome, the service being helpful and friendly. Since I last went to this pub it has changed management and had a... More

Delicious food here, very welcoming place, children friendly. Large menu to choose from, and a separate children's menu too. I will be returning. Excellent service.

Just had a steak meal for two for £20. Good portions well cooked and very tasty couldn't fault it. A table of ten came in just behind us and the waitress kindly came to us and asked if we were ready to order first to avoid along wait so great service as well.

Good food, good prices, great staff and only just down the road. Sunday roast is quality and quantity. Needless to say we'll be back soon!

Went for the steak deal with some friends, couldn't fault the steak at all was brilliant. Chef was great and made peppercorn sauce at request. Shame about the bar staff the red head could've cracked a smile and made a unnecessary comment about me requesting it. Apart from that great meal. Would probably return.

Came here for a drink, it is soulless, not sure why as it seems a nice place. Truro I believe has so much better on offer.

Had a lovely lunch here. All three of us ordered a small gammon, egg and chips. Thank goodness we didn't order a large!!! It was a really large meal. And I have to say that the chips were not just the best we have had in a while,they were the best we've ever had. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and excellent service... More
