Welcome to the Swan and Railway, Wigan’s Original.

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.

Our magnificent atmospheric outside beer garden under the railway arches is a perfect spot to while away some time as the trains rumble by almost directly overhead.

At the Swan’s heart are cask beers served form our magnificent beer engine, complemented by a great range of the finest lagers, stouts, ciders, 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.

If you don’t fancy a strong drink, we also always offer the best fresh barista coffee or tea.

If you’re 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.

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.

The Hotel in our name is just that as we have seven beautiful luxury rooms on the upper floors. They have a selection of features ranging from elegant and spacious room 1 with its free standing bath to rooms 6 and 7 which we call our train enthusiasts rooms with their beautiful bay windows high up at the front of the pub offering panoramic views over the station and main London to Glasgow Railway line, you won’t miss a single train but fear not they are double glazed!

So, sit back and enjoy!
