The building - to the north side of Norwich cathedral -is Grade II listed and dates to the 16th century. It was known as the White Lion under its first licensee, John Starr, in 1760.

In 1985 its name changed to the Wig & Pen, reflecting its proximity to the Magistrates' Courts. The two coats of arms on the front of the building are of the Blomefield family, well-known Norwich historians. Craig McLaren has owned the pub since 1993. 'The Wig' as its affectionately known, has built a reputation for a fresh, fast, affordable British cuisine. A comprehensive lunchtime menu is very popular with local businesses and tourists alike. The weekend and evening menu is a combination of modern and traditional dishes, freshly prepared using locally sourced produce. Les Routiers British Pubs & Inns guide lists the Wig & Pen as a 'must visit' when in Norwich.
