Wig & PenFrances Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Convenient for the town and railway station, the 'Wig' offers a pleasant interior and quiet, friendly atmosphere. Originally the Star Inn, it was renamed with the coming of the then new law courts nearby. It is oftern busy with lunchtime customers, mainly passing shoppers, visitors or from the nearby law courts, and has a strong emphasis on food, although there is a loyal following of local drinkers too. The single, carpeted L-shaped bar has wooden furnishings throughout. Beers may be varied within the St. Austell Brewery portfolio, with HSD ever-present. There is a strong emphasis on quality food, cooked in-house using local produce; the pub basement is generally available for functions. The small patio is popular in good weather.
