One of the first pubs you get to from the train stations heading into the town centre. Modern lookin exterior with a traditional, though slightly modern, interior. Open plan with distinct areas to sit. Its not too bad a pub and there are 6 handpulls to tempt you. The beer selection was pretty decent and whether Dunscar had just delivered a shed load as most beers were theirs, I do not know. Fairly busy on this midweek afternoon visit. It did however continue a theme I've noticed a few times in Wigan in that teeth are rather scarce, and not just with the pensioners.

a very decent option in Wigan town centre although it's very similar to all others i've visited in the Amber Taverns group. a massive TV was showing World Cup football and there were a truckload of other screens around the place. four real ales, an Old Rosies and a 'coming soon'. some characters in the bar, it's a bit Spoons-y but in a nice way.

Visited on a weekday lunchtime at the end of May. Six hand pulls at the bar with one cider and one "coming soon". A couple of mainstream offerings but the others were interesting. I noticed an ale called Amarillo at 4% and Blissful Blonde by Dunscar Bridge at 5%. I had a half of the Blissful Blonde at £1.45 - a very nice crisp blonde ale. The barman informed me I had made a good choice, and he was right.

This is a big building with lots of varnished wood inside giving it a traditional feel, in slight contrast to the outside which is painted in the currently trendy National Trust Green. It's a smart inviting looking pub from the outside, looks like the kind of place that focuses on food and may have a couple of token real ales, so to find a nice selection at the bar was a welcome surprise.
