Bucking Fastard left this review about Wigan Central

This is the place to drink real ale in Wigan.Occupying two railway arches,the left side has been fitted out in a strong railway theme,with a booking office to the left,the bar in the shape of a railway carriage and with lots of railways signs and ephemera dotted about.There is a large exterior patio,while high tables run through the central part of the interior,with more conventional seating and booths to one side.The other arch has a small stage at the end and overflow seating if the main room is busy.There is also a large library of bottled beers against a rear wall.
Very well chosen muzak was playing ,it was busy at 4pm on a Tuesday and the clientele seemed devoid of the derilict types in many of the other town centre pubs and bars.
There are 7 handpumps drawing on my visit Tiny Rebel Cwtch,Doghouse Amber,Listers Dark Mild,Brass Castle Misfit,Prospect Totem,Kirkstall Black Band and a very good Brewsmith Mandarina Ultra.Ale quality was top notch,good to see a mix of styles but a little disappointed that there were no high ABV options,an issue common to many real ale outlets in Wigan.
A must visit and the best option when in town,the only reason to hold back from top marks was the ABV issue.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Wigan Central

Housed in a couple of the arches on the south side of the North Western station, the decorative theme is naturally railway-related and this extends to three train compartment-style booths opposite a reconstructed ticket office façade, and the bar counter is also styled to look like a open-sided carriage. Several small tables can be found out on the pavement, and the next-door arch (The Platform) may be used for events? However, the weekly quiz was in full swing during my Monday-night visit, and live music is advertised for every Sunday afternoon. Although seven real ales in a range of different styles were available from the seven handpumps, I opted for the regular Totem from the owning Prospect Brewery (£2.90).

Wigan Central has now been extended with the use of arch 2 and is called The Platform which includes more beer barrels and a stage in the left hand corner.Very busy on our Saturday evening visit.
