i don't know why it took me so long to try this place, but it was well worth the wait. the interior cosy, modern but still pub-like, the outdoor seating area providing a curiously charming view of the ring road (how very Wigan) and my beer was the best of the day, unbelievably nice. and at a typical Wigan price. hopefully it won't be long before my return.

Cracking little place, 7 hand pulls at the bar including Prospect Totem (which I believe to be a regular fixture) plus rotating guest ales. At the time of my visit these were Milvus by Squawk, Catnap by Barngates, Days of Wilde by Wilde Child / Revolutions collab, Hazelnut Porter by North Riding, and 9th Shade of Pale by Lost Industry. An impressive selection and mix of styles and strengths. I had the porter and the stout, both were good and priced at £1.45 for a half pint if I remember rightly.

The interior is done out in the style of a station bar with a ticket office window and recognisable railway colours round the bar. A mix of seating including booths and tables and chairs. Copies of various beer related magazines are available to peruse while enjoying your pint. Dog friendly too (the place, not the magazines).

I will be back!

This pub has now been extended and is in 2 arches under Wigan North Western Station. Patsy is the brewster involved and a couple of her Prospect beers always feature on the bar here. The left hand side contains the bar and has 3 booths down one side along with some high tables and stools. The right hand side is more open with more high table and chairs plus some barrels and has been designed to look like old station buildings including 2 plastic pigeons in the roof space, very clever. There's an outdoor area at the front with wooden benches and chairs, but as it was lashing it down I didn't bother with these. There are 7 handpumps on the bar and both the beers I tried were in good nick. As previously mentioned there is a board displaying the latest train times. There's also an electronic beer board that displays the beers on the bar as Departing and the beers in the cellar as Arrivals, another nice touch. This is a very good pub and is a must visit when in Wigan.
