Description: A traditional pub steeped in history that offers a unique food and dining experience in the heart of a bustling town centre. With 13 rotating guest ales and ciders, 100 plus whisky's and rare spirits, bottled global beers, draught lagers & Belgian beers we have something different to appeal to your palate. Our chefs produce regularly changing menus tailored to showcase the finest seasonal produce. All our recipes are produced on site using ingredients sourced from numerous local suppliers. As a proud supporter of the Northampton Saints we regularly show all Rugby games throughout the season on our many screens. The Wig and Pen is also proud to offer a diverse range of live music every week of the year. CAMRA (campaign for real ale) accredited & we were voted Northamptonshire's pub of the season by CAMRA for Spring 2012 because of our excellent selection of quality local and national real ales.

Great selection of real ales, regular entertainment, a lovely beer garden and plenty of events/festivals going on throughout the year. The food is exceptional and the menu ambitious for what is essentially a town centre boozer, but the talented kitchen staff deliver on their promise. Highly recommended.

Great steak deal on a Wednesday night, 2 steaks plus chips, sides, sauces (lovely choices for each, including the steaks - sirloin, rib eye or rump) plus bottle of wine £30. Nice relaxed atmosphere for town centre. Good attentive service but not OTT. Thanks! We'll be back!

Tuesday lunch for four really enjoyable. Menu is more interesting than the standard pub grub offerings and the quality was definitely higher too. Nice traditional interior with a great range of real ales and even a couple of top quality choices for a lager drinker (bittburger + others). It was the busiest pub in the town on tuesday night but thats not saying much (about 25 people). Staff were delightful. Would recommend this pub for eating and drinking.

Busy pub so get in early. Great music! Cosy seating outside once the heaters were turned on! Bar then gets empty about midnight.
