Went in but the pounding music was too much so went back out.

The most striking thing about this pub is its wonderful art deco interior. It looks original but I’m told it is a recent renovation. There are several types of red themed light fittings and at least 6 different styles of wallpaper in similar colour.

Unfortunately, the reddened lighting makes it difficult to make out what some of the beers are ! There were about 4 or 5 real ales available, I had Moorhouses Black Cat, and my friend had a fruity beer from Coach House, both of which were reasonable.

Another trip to wigan and a visit to the Raven, still a decent pub, 5 ales on and I had coach house Brewery 'Coconut', a very nice beer.

The Raven must be another place that I have walked past many times and never set foot in. I noticed it was in the latest Good Beer Guide. So with time to kill, I thought it might be worth a try. A bouncer at the door didn't bode well as I passed initially. But on returning from the John Bull Chophouse, he appeared to have disappeared. One young lady on a bench outside looked rather ill and another guy inside at the bar looked as if he wanted a fight! 3 ales and a cider were on - Wychwood Hobgoblin, Moorhouses Blond Witch, Bank Top Old Slapper & Sandford Orchards Fanny's Bramble. Service was friendly and the interior is very nice, with a central corridor spanning the pub and drinking areas either side. Another establishment I'll probably drop into next time I'm in Wigan.

Pub number 3 and it’s time to visit this internally stunning pub that has recently been restored to it’s former glory with all it’s original tiling now on show.

With the National Front march just finishing but with still some tension in the air I’m not surprised to see doorman as I enter the pub.

Inside it’s pretty busy, the bar area has football on the television’s near the front window. Food is also being served with the pie’s looking particularly good.

3 people behind the bar ensures quick service from the 6 hand pumps with 6 different ales on, Timothy Taylor's Landlord was in fine form.

I only stayed for 1 pint and chatted to a very friendly local at the bar. I aim to visit Wigan again quiet soon and will make sure the Raven and Anvil are on my list along with a couple more pubs I missed as I didn’t have time before heading to the DW Stadium.
