Brilliant! Ate here before going to the theatre with my wife and had a fantastic meal. The atmosphere is lively yet still welcoming and friendly.
Eat here recently whilst staying in Northampton and the food is amazing!!! Would highly recommend for anyone to eat here whilst visiting Northampton!!!
Had a late lunch in the Wig and Pen on Saturday. Smoked fish platter was excellent, there were plenty of other options on menu and sandwiches we saw looked great. There were 10 or so bitters on tap plus a good selection of lagers and ciders. A number of TVs showing rugby. Large outdoor covered area. Went back Saturday evening... More
2 hungry blokes, 2 steaks ordered, a rib eye and a Rump steak. Both steaks cooked to perfection and served with an excellent side salad. Steaks were tender, lean and had great flavour. We had a bottle of Malbec which was excellent value. Pub was busy for a Monday but staff were really good. See you next Monday
Always been a great pub for food and drink, but even better with a new chef. Meals are a bit more pricey than before, but well worth it,
I've eaten in the Wig (or Black Lion as it should be) three times now, having had, last time, the seafood platter which was great but broke the bank somewhat.

We sat outside in the garden which was really nice (except for the many smokers whilst we were eating - you much be able to do something about... More
By far best pub in Northampton. Clearly run with passion and pride. Everything is done very well. Food is outstanding, staff are great. Live music, great garden (now with retractable roof). Extensive and varied selection of drinks. Nothing to fault. I visit pretty much every week and it never fails!
Never eaten here before and only today as chosen restaurant was closed but so glad it was. The choice of food was excellent, good prices and when it was served we had a surprise how much there was and the presentation. The food was delicious, we had a vegetarian sharing board and the sword fish special and was so enjoyable.... More
For selection of drinks inc real ales, standard of food and value you will struggle to match the wig and pen. It also has a great atmosphere, very friendly. Have always been impressed with the staff and doormen too. Great midweek and on weekends, diverse crowd. One of Northamptons finest pubs
