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

Fine real ale pub, retaining three distinct areas in the partly opened-out interior, with the bar in the central section. Separate rooms can be found on either side; one refurbished in the same lighter style but the other darker despite it being on the corner and having windows on two sides. Patio seating can also be found out in the rear yard. An array of nine handpumps offers two draught ciders and seven cask beers in a wide range of styles, including Deception (£2.55) as one of a pair from Abbeydale.

I think this was only converted to a pub in the 80s or so. that said, it's all traditional and very much a boozers boozer. very popular with Wigan's oldies as well as football and rugby fans, it's definitely the best pub in Wigan for beer if nothing special in any other department.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Anvil

A decent pub this one and well worth a visit. All the ales we tried were in excellent condition. There were 7 ales and 1 cider to choose from on our visit. We tried ales from Allgates and Nottingham Brewery.
