We stopped in because it was the first place that didn't ask if we had a reservation. It was almost empty with a few patrons at the bar. Our waitress was very cute, friendly and helpful. If we find ourselves in Truro again we will stop. The food was good...not fancy...but good and well presented.

A little pricey but has a good atmosphere. Games night on a Monday is meant to be excellent but I haven't been yet. Not sure what the food is like but its got an outside area which is nice to sit in and watch the world go by.

I only popped in for a couple of pints and I was made to feel very welcome. The beer was very good, obviously kept well. The landlord served me and he was extremely friendly.

The Wig & Pen is a lovely looking pub, bright and airy with an area outside to sit and watch the world go by. We arrived to have lunch and checked out the menu and specials board, looked very tempting. Two burgers ordered and we sat waiting with our drinks. The first hint of a problem was when food was...

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!
