Fine ales, great atmosphere,
honest food, real people.
Built in 1898 this beautiful Victorian pub on Wigan’s Wallgate, immediately opposite North Western Station and just a hundred yards from Wallgate station stands proud retaining many of its original features including a splendid tiled drinking corridor.
We hope we’ve brought you something special as we’ve sought to turn the pub back to how in would have ‘come out of the box’ new in its extravagant Victorian heyday. Bustling and lively but with corners to relax in we hope you enjoy it as a proper pub. At its heart are cask beers served form our magnificent beer engine, complemented by a great range of the finest lagers, stouts, ciders, wines, spirits and a carefully chosen wine list.
Wigan being Wigan we like our pies, we serve Pieminister pies which are a real treat along with other honest dishes, always with a Vegan option and the best pork pies and Scotch eggs. If you don’t fancy a strong drink we also always offer the best fresh barista coffee or tea and a cake.
If your popping in for a quick escape before or after catching your train don’t worry you can keep an eye on the train times which are on display in the public bar while you read todays papers.
Our ‘Rocket’ juke box is a treat – made in Leeds by the only remaining traditional juke box manufacturer in the world it has a great selection – dig out the Northern Soul if that takes your fancy.
We could hardly call ourselves Wigan’s Original if we didn’t show the Rugby and Football games live and the Rugby League historians amongst you will soon discover why our back room is called the Syd Abram suite.
