Went for a Sunday lunch as a party of four (24/09/17), and we all plumped for the actual Sunday (Beef) roast. We chose the Wig & Pen (partly) because of their reputation for being able to adapt their menu for coeliacs (ie. gluten free food)....More

Nice steak with good chips. And beer on tap was good. Late lunch at 14:30 whilst waiting to catch a train. Missed the 15:28 and caught the 16:42. The sign of a good pub!

Great service from two effervescent, friendly young ladies. Beer was good as was the food: scampi and chips for him and a delightful courgette spaghetti with kale pesto and popcorn halloumi for me. Very reasonably priced too. Good food, no loud music. Loved it!

In search of sustenance (and drink!) we found this pub. Amongst the menu we found "Build your own burger" for £10- burger or chicken or halloumi or wild mushroom & hazelnut + topping + dip/sauce + side = bargain! Not just the typical bacon, cheese...More
