Aqualung . left this review about The Wig & Pen

On the face of it this looks like an L shaped room as you enter but in fact is one large room with a central almost island bar. It seemed to be carpeted throughout and the side nearest the entrance had TV screens which were silent when I arrived but one had the sound turned up when a match started. There are just two hand pumps but happily both were from the local Gadds' brewery (No 5 and Gyle 1664). The Gyle 1664 (£3.40) was in good nick.
While the TVs here are a bit of a pain I may have been able to avoid them. Credit goes to a pubco local for doing beers from a local brewery rather than the usual dross.

A good traditional town pub in the Old Town area, with a fairly dark wooden interior. Clearly popular with the locals and not unpleasant to visit. Draught ales included one from Gadds.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Wig & Pen

Fair-sized Thorley Taverns pub in the former Market Place, with an island bar and various small seating areas. Traditional furniture and decor, but all a bit tatty. Pool table and sports TV. Two handpumps offering the local Gadds beers - No 7 and She Sells Sea Shells by the Sea Shore (£2.60, but not in the best of condition). (NB - Review dates from August 2011.)
