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.

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!

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
