The Honeysuckle is a beautiful traditional red brick building situated in Pool Street, Wigan, which is approximately ½ mile from Wigan town centre and close to both Wigan Pier and Trenderfield Mill. The pub is surrounded by both terraced housing and bungalows and is ideally situated on a busy crossroads creating extra footfall.
The Honeysuckle has an open-plan layout with a horseshoe shaped bar surrounded by tiled flooring in the heart of the pub servicing all areas. Although it is open plan there are distinct areas separating the more relaxed lounge section with carpeted flooring and the games area with a tiled floor housing a pool table and darts board. Within the pub there is a small commercial kitchen together with an area used for a large carvery unit. The garden area of the pub is a key selling point having recently undergone a refurbishment with this fantastic area offering large parasols, lighting, new benches, pathways and decked areas as well as a smoking area near the rear entrance which is ideal to sit out and enjoy the sun.
The Honeysuckle has an avid sport following incorporating the local pool and darts teams along with showing live sporting events on the televisions. The pub provides regular live entertainment over the weekends and serves food seven days a week with an emphasis on Sunday lunches from the carvery units. The horseshoe shaped bar offers something for everyone as it is stocked with a mixed range of dinks including lagers, ciders, cask ales, spirits, wines and minerals.
The private accommodation is a very good size with three generously sized bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom.
