A disappointing visit this one as I found the interior to be hot and stuffy, even though it wasn't such a particularly hot day on our visit. This also coincided with their beer temperature as it was too warm and not in great condition, so the mutual decision to leave was the right one. The barmaid was friendly and chatty and tipped us off to visit another bar when visiting Standish. I found the interior with a formica counter, black plastic wall and bar front cladding and choice of music to be off putting. Maybe we caught it on a bad day.

Not really a micro-pub, this is just a cafe bar - albeit in a shop-conversion - and has been well described by PSM below. We received a friendly greeting when we entered but unfortunately we found the beers to be not up to the same standard. Wily Fox Blonde Vixen was tried and rejected, and we settled on the two alternatives: Springhead Outlawed and Blundells Ringside Blonde. Though none of them was off to the extent of taking them back and asking for them to be changed - changed for what, anyway - they were unpleasant enough for all four of us to leave our drinks unfinished. Maybe this part of Wigan is not ready yet for real ale.

New-fangled café / bar, with very modern and light furniture and decor. Two of three real handpumps in use, dispensing Adnams Mosaic and the local Hophurst Twisted Vine (£2.60). Quiet later on a Thursday evening, but perhaps I missed the rush?
