user reviews of Docs Symposium, Wigan

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

On our recent visit to Wigan we nipped into Doc's Symposium, busy again but the age range of the customers ranged from 20s to 60s. Had a pint of Bowland 'Hen Harrier' decent enough pint.

Got to agree with blue scrumpy , it does look like a cafe, but staff were friendly, there is seating out the front for smokers. Quite busy on the Sunday we visited but we got a table ok, the clientele were all over 50. There was 5 ales on, I had Prospect 'Silver Tally', a pleasant session ale.

Also found a micro pub near the bus station called the Tap 'n' Barrel, which is not listed on this website. It is, I think, the brewery tap for the Martland Mill Brewery. Pleasant & friendly bar staff, tables at front for smokers. 5 ales on, i indulged in Clogmaker [nice pint], D-Day Dodger [very nice] 7 Arctic Convoy [stout like ale, smooth & very tasty]. Would recommend this establishment.

With an hour to spare in Wigan whilst changing trains, I made the 10 minute walk to Doc's Symposium. Described as a micropub, it felt more like a continental café. It comes complete with a delicatessen counter. Ales were Weetwood Cheshire Cat & Eastgate, York Guzzler, Black Edge Hop & Prospect Silver Tally. It was busy late on a Saturday evening. There were more tables than your average micropub. But all were taken. So standing or sitting outside were the only options. Not as good as I was hoping. So I drank up swiftly and moved on.
