Welcome to Real Crafty – Wigan’s newest and boldest real ale and craft beer emporium. which opened on 21st August 2020.
We are centrally located in Wigan town centre – on Upper Dicconson Street in a premise formerly known as ‘Bar Legion’. We are just 5 minutes walk from the bus station and about 10 minutes from both of the town’s railway stations (Wigan Wallgate and Wigan North Western). For drivers, street parking is available virtually outside our front doors.
Apart from a warm welcome, you can expect a wide range of craft beer, cider and perry from our 30 keg fonts, plus up to 5 real ales dispensed via handpull. We’ll also have a collection of beers, in both bottles and cans, from around the world in our Beer Atlas.
It’s also likely that you’ll be greeted by a familiar face behind the bar. Ben Cusick (our manager) and Liam Hook (deputy manager) both previously worked in the multi award-winning Wigan Central, across the other side of town.
We have so many ideas and future plans the pub. We hope that this is the start of something big and that you’ll join us on our journey to making it a reality.
