Bit quiet on our midweek visit, easier to get a seat. I had Fyne Ales 'Vital Spark' [a dark tasty ale].

A decent bar, mainly for the beer nerds. As a pub, not at all for me. A bit aloof and trendy.

Bar staff still efficient & friendly on our recent visit. 7 handpumps with 6 ales on, I had Abbeydale 'Daily Bread' [a nice tasty ale] & Ridgeways 'Black Night' [a great song & a great stout, very nice].

The beers okay and it's handy for the station (underneath it in fact) but I wouldn't add to the accolades - found it pretty average really.

Newly opened venue in railway arch directly underneath Wigan North Western station. Definitely catering for the beer enthusiast market.

The centre of the arch is clear, and leads directly to the bar. Down the left hand side there is some (normal) tables and seating. On this wall there are real-time displays showing arrivals and departures from both Wigan stations. On the right hand side, the tables and seating have been arranged in the form of 3 railway compartments, complete with luggage racks ! There are also fake windows showing the “view” outside the train. [ We were disappointed these weren’t also animated ]

The beer consisted of 5 or 6 real ales on handpump, plus a similar number of craft keg lines. These are also shown on the large slowly scrolling screen above the bar. There is also a cupboard of bottled beers, with a beer list being available on the tables (the list isn’t as long as it looks as it is indexed both alphabetically and by style.)

On looking at the beer, I saw a brown ale, and asked for a pint of that, only to be told they didn’t serve it in pints – it was 11% ! In the end I had beers from Prospect and Siren, followed by a third of the aforementioned brown ale (Ay Hop Code Brown), and they were all excellent.

There is a newer second arch, but we didn’t go in there because it was “recovering” from a recent beer festival. They also do beer tasting sessions (10 beers for £17.50), and we will definitely be trying one of those soon.

CAMRA discount is given, though not widely advertised

9/10 – a must for anyone in the locality
