Visited with a group of friends and had a very nice meal. Almost all of us had burgers but they are customisable so we all had something different. The hot sauce is very hot but if you like spicy food, give it a go! It was all freshly cooked and tasty, plus very reasonably priced. Worth a visit for an... More

Visited with my partner this evening, the food was amazing. Presented really nicely. Tasted great. The menu had a great selection of traditional and more adventurous meals. Got to try something I had never had before and I loved it. The staff were very welcoming and always would cater for your personal taste when ordering. The whole atmosphere of the... More

This is a slightly jaded old pub, with mostly locals. The menu did not look very exciting but they did have Trevethan Gin which was great.

Booked a table with friends on Saturday evening. On arrival the menu was very uninspiring. Very basic and limited pub food (not even lasagne or a curry on the menu). We were not looking for a top end dining experience by any means. So in that aspect we were not disappointed. My wife and I shared a potato skins with... More

We work hard to make sure all customers are happy with their visit, or at least leave happy on the rare occasion that there is an issue. It is unfortunate we were not given the chance to show this on this visit. However, I'm very... More

Stopped off at The Wig & Pen on a whim without booking. No trouble to find us a table. We went for the Sunday Lunch - one Roast Beef and one Gammon. Both were excellent with a good selection of vegetables and the gravy was to die for! Decided to share a dessert - but they had run out of... More

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.
