user reviews of Pen and Wig, Newport

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A week away (Friday night).

Nominally a Brains house with a reasonable selection of guests so went for Glamorgan Jemima's Pitchfork, which was ok.

Food was pretty good but the service was a little slow given the pub was fairly quiet, timed to arrive just as you finished a drink so had to get another one!

Given Newport's alleged reputation probably one of the safest pubs, didn't see anyone under 45 in the place!

The Pen and Wig is just a short stroll from Newport train station.

It was in the 2013 Good Beer Guide and with their 5 varied ales on this is a decent beer drinkers heaven.

The choice of ales were St Austall Tribute, Bass, Pontypridd's 04 Colombo, The Kite Brewery Cwrw Gorslas and Tiny Rebel's Cwtch Welsh red ale. I opted for the Cwrw Gorslas, very good, nicely kept.

Most locals standing or sitting at the bar with a good level of banter. Nice to hear some Welsh accents after spending the day previous in North Wales where everyone was either from Liverpool or Manchester!

I was scrumping for beer mats and the landlord kindly went and retrieved some for me.

All in all a really quality pub, that should be on any beer drinkers radar when in Newport.
