A bit of a walk out of town,but proving very popular in the good weather ,there were lots of tables and chairs outside on the pavement.Inside it felt a bit like a sandwich shop and it could easily double up as a cafe.The portrait wallpaper gave some character,while the glass cabinet was serving cheese and other snack foods.The flatscreen was off during our trip.
The 4 handpumps were serving Bank Top Flat Cap,Prospect Silver Tally,Kirkstall Pale (decent) and Deeply Vale Citra Storm (very good,great session ale).Shame there was nothing in the higher ABV category but having been disappointed by the ale selection in some other GBG listed pubs,this place got a good deal of our customer.Along with Wigan Central ,I would say this is a Wigan pub not to miss.

A fairly decent micropub. Its not, however, a place for those of you that abide by the strict micropub rules that you've made up as there is background music AND a tv. For the less petty then this is quite good. The bar is next to a deli counter and there are 5 handpumps plus 2 keg fonts. Beers from Abbeydale, Prospect, Doghouse and Bank Top available today. Dodgy wallpaper as noted. I liked it.

This is pretty much a micropub with a deli. One small room that looks very like a cafe. "Interesting" wallpaper with one side covered in fake bricks and another with jokey animal themes, almost like a kids bedroom. Several chunky wooden tables and smart chairs to sit on gives it a higher class than usual look. Some cafe style metal tables and chairs on the pavement outside for those occasional sunny days. 5 handpumps with beers from 5 different breweries on the bar and my two halves were both in excellent condition. I really liked this one.
