Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Royal Oak

Decent pub located a short distance north of the town centre and having the benefit of being seemingly the only place in Wigan (apart from the 'spoons) serving food after 19:00 on a Monday evening... Anyway, it has been partly opened-out inside to leave a 'L'-shaped bar with a semi-traditional look with plenty of light wood furniture. The smaller side lounge / dining area is more richly furnished, and there is plenty of patio tables out the back (including a row of covered booths)plus a narrow front terrace. Only three of five handpumps were in use, offering Phoenix White Tornado (£3.10), Reedly Hallows Old Laund bitter and a Lilley's cider.

an interesting quirky pub, run by the same people as the Fifteens outlets. a comfortable open plan interior with a few different areas. large and impressive beer garden with booths, a bar, table football and an out of order popcorn cart! reasonably priced cask ales and food served all day. worth the quick walk out of the centre if you're in town.

This pub has never been open whenever I've been in Wigan until today. A large open plan interior plus a small side room to the right on entering. A fairly pleasant, if untraditional interior makes it slightly different. A rear beer garden is available. 4 handpumps on the bar but only 2 on today with Wainwright and New Orders Stray Dog available today.
