After much discussion and research into what is possible for Wigan Central during the Tier 3 lockdown, we have decided not to pursue a temporary future as a restaurant.
This is not why we are here.
The beer has always been the most important part of Wigan Central's ethos and to move away from that in order to remain open will go against what we stand for.
There are also other points to consider.
We appreciate that people will want to join us for a beer, but with the requirement being that they must purchase a 'substantial meal' it will bring the cost of our cheapest pint up to £6 at the absolute minimum.
We all know, and appreciate that most people will not be joining us for the meal itself, but will partake in order to enjoy a couple of beers with us. This will lead to considerable food waste and we feel that with many people currently facing unemployment, an increase in those on the breadline and rising homelessness, it would be unethical for us to be so wasteful.
We will however, be running our home delivery service and restarting activities on the Wigan Central Virtual Pub Group. More details to follow.
We hope you appreciate our reasoning and will support us until we are able to return to a level of normality.
In the meantime, we'll really miss you all.

Welcome to Wigan Central, Wigan’s only dedicated Real Ale & Cider Bar located in the historic Arches No. 1 & 2, Queen Street, Wigan.
We have brought the railway arch, which dates from the mid 19th century, back to life and given Wigan Central a unique environment and atmosphere to enjoy an eclectic variety of real ales and ciders from brewers from all corners of Britain and beyond.
At any one time we have seven real ales and four craft ciders on the bar alongside a range of 100 plus bottled beers from Nationwide Brewers. We also have a great selection of Continental and American bottled beers and a selection of quality lagers and wines to choose from. So what’s not to like!
We know that Wigan Central will become the “1st. Stop” for real ale and cider lovers from across the region. We look forward to welcoming you.
