waited at the bar for 15 minutes to order food and soft drinks-hopeless service as always here-get a queue system for goodness sake. food ok when it eventually arrived. went there because it is in town.Much prefer the Brocket Arms on Mesnes Road -better service by far.

Me and Mrs were having a quick pub meal and a quick drink. We sat down, there was flies all around us. We moved seats, ordered food and a drink to find out the flies were just as bad, and we could see others wafting their hands for the same reason. Flies kept landing on our food and drinks (we...

Typical Wetherspoon pub in my experience - tacky, poor food, badly kept beer, smelly toilets, unwelcoming, but cheap.

This Weatherspoons has a great range of beers both domestic and international, the addition of contacless payment makes the whole thing easier. Food is your basic pub grub, but good value for money (I miss the Sausage & chips). My only issue is no matter when you go in, there never seems to be enough staff serving and the glass... More

Visited Wigan today for the first time in years. We were impressed as to how many eating establishments there were here. However, we decided on a Wetherspoons again. There is so much history behind these wonderful buildings whether it be a cinema or in this case a former library. Soon got served at the bar. The food was good at... More

I enjoy Wetherspoons food & in most reviews give a higher score. However this time it was the bar service that really let it down.There were three people behind the the a young lady, a young man and an older woman I took to be in charge. Having been in the trade & eating out for a number of years... More

Thank you for taking time to review our establishment. I would like to apologise for the lady in question and assure you she didn't mean to seem rude. She thought the customer she served before you was next in line and obviously went to them next. She didn't mean to come across this way. We don't accept tips so this... More

Right on the high street doesn't look the friendliest from the outside and wasn't sure if the full thing was the same pub due to a sign on one bit and not the other should really be in the middle. Toilets upstairs very clean and modern. Lots of space separate pub bit from dining are. Have to go to the... More

The service at the bar was extremely slow and this is not uncommon, the bar staff do not have a clue who is next to be served so it's a case of who shouts loudest gets served first, food is ok nothing special.
