Joseph Holt Launches New Lychgate Pub in Standish, Wigan

The Lychgate

After receiving a £400,000 investment The Lychgate, Wigan re-opens to the public

The Lychgate was purchased by Manchester-based brewer, Joseph Holt at the beginning of 2017, and will re-open on Friday 22nd September after a £400,000 investment.

During a 4 week full closure the pub was completely transformed. The pub is cosy and traditional and will re-open as a food and cask ale house. There are bare brick walls and open fire places, the perfect place to sit with a hearty pub lunch and a pint of Joseph Holt cask when the winter nights start closing in. There is booth seating complete with TV’s, and tall bar seating if you just want to grab a drink and watch the sports.

The new site now features an extensive food menu, serving much-loved classics like fish and chips and homemade steak and ale pie, alongside sandwiches, burgers and a grill section. The menu also has a children’s section with meals priced at £4.95. Whether you’re looking for a cosy pub to grab lunch with the family or a quick bite during a football game The Lychgate will have something for you.  

An extensive new drinks range has been added with premium spirits, seasonal casks and a variety of bottled craft products. Not forgetting the award-winning range of Joseph Holt cask, keg and bottled products.

The beer garden was also extended during the refurbishment, with ample seating it is the perfect place to sit and catch some sunshine and dogs are also welcome. The pub also has a free car parking for customers.

Area Manager Dave Bone said “The Lychgate has been a great project to work on. The site looks completely different. A lot of hard work and commitment has gone into making the site what it is now and I couldn’t be happier. The new and previous staff have also undergone an extensive training programme prior to opening so I am more than confident that the new Lychgate will be a hit with locals and the wider community who visit”.

Please come and pay us a visit, grab a drink and something to eat at the Lychgate!
