Large pub with carvery & live sports. Long bar, polished wood floor, set up like a chain pub pushing food, but some nice areas & space

Quinno _ left this review about The Pen & Wig

A fairly mainstream place in a sloped terraced building but has some good selling points. The interior has not been fully opened-out so there are some relatively discrete drinking areas in what feels like a mid-90s refit - inoffensive but hardly noteworthy - and there’s an open kitchen at the rear if you want to check out chef's deep frying skills. When you enter you see four pumps but don't stop there, carry on round the bar for the full six. On my evening visit there was Gloucester Gold (good nick and only £1.40 a half) Bass, Cotleigh Osprey, Goffs Tournament and 2x Brains, SA and Main Stage. Friendly service from behind the bar. A solid pub that’s a guaranteed visit if you’re in the town.

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

Converted at some stage from two small buildings in a terrace running up Stow Hill, this pub has a refurbished façade and an ale house-type interior with a range of seating areas. Open kitchen at the back offering a range of burgers and other grills. Busy when I visited due to international rugby on the TVs, but the staff were managing well. Good range of beers from about ten handpumps, including the Gloucester Dockside Dark at £2.75. Run by the local JW Bassett chain.
