Morris dancing as part of the Golden Star Weekend of
Dance outside the Wig and Pen, June 1998

A friendly 16th-century pub within a stonesthrow of the city centre cathedral and just around the corner from the law courts. They've a good range of locally brewed beers including Buffy's Bitter, a really tasty yet fairly low alcohol beer (abv. 3.9%) that I could have consumed imperial pints of. Quite a small pub with a TV showing a 1998 World Cup match during my visit. A very friendly barman who apologised for not serving me immediately. They've plenty of seating in the beamed bar with lots of tables outside should the weather be good. They also serve reasonably priced meals at lunchtime. All in all, a good friendly pub to go to for a quiet chat and a quality local pint.
