Traditional town centre pub, quite busy early Saturday lunchtime with a good mix of locals, shoppers and beer tourists. Its been well described numerous times below, plenty of beer choice, I had a nice pint of Silverstone Pit Stop. A good official start to a Northampton pub crawl.

Old beamed pub , long thin front lounge leading up to bar area and final larger area giving an L-shape. Copper tables, distressed paint work, settles. Friendly service and a nice place all round.

The Wig & Pen is a decent looking pub which still has its old Mansfield brewery signage outside.
Once inside there is a an L shaped room which runs to the rear,the rear area is up one step where the bar is,there are normal tables and chairs to the front and some pew seats and small stool further down the room,it is carpeted throughout and seemed quite comfortable and cosy.
There was a good choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Elgoods Cambridge Bitter,which went down well,the other real ales noted were ,Hop Back Citra,RCh Old Slug Porter
Adnams Ghost Ship,London Pride,Black Sheep Bitter and Black Hole Cosmic.
There was quiet background music playing and the pub was doing good trade on our Saturday dinner visit.
I quite liked this pub.
