“Excellent friendly place”
Review of The Lychgate

The Lychgate
Ranked #8 of 20 Restaurants in Standish
Price range: US$ 4 - US$ 43
Description: The Lychgate is an exciting new addition to the growing Joseph Holt estate which was acquired from a private owner at the back end of 2016. Located in the town of Standish, Wigan. The pub has been completely transformed into a cosy traditional pub with bare brick walls, open fire-places and pictures of Wigan to bring out the heritage of the pub complimented with modern furnishings to give the pub a traditional feel with a contemporary twist. The family-friendly pub now features an extensive food menu, serving much-loved classics like fish and chips and homemade steak and ale pies, alongside sandwiches, burgers and a grill selection. 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.

Ventured in to Standish for a walk with our dogs and to have a few drinks. As it was cold we looked for places that were dog friendly. Even though it was a busy Saturday night they were extremely accommodating and made us feel very comfortable, spoiling our dogs and ensuring we had enough water etc.
I have had food here previously and found it very tasty under the new management. Will be heading back again soon I am sure

Me and my girlfriend dropped by for a bite to eat, we were pleasantly suprised by the large portion sizes and the small prices!

Food was superb and everyone around us seemed to be having a great time, the managment team joined us for a drink and made our evening very enjoyable with some good light hearted humour and even recomeneded some lovely flavoured gin for us!

Enviroment was clean and modern whilst still maintaining a nice rustic feel! Music kept the enviroment upbeat but wasnt intrusive.

All in all a great evening!

Will defo be going back!

Thank Dan T
