It's definitely better than Poole's pies. Gallimores isn't bad, not many good restaurants in Wigan town centre though.

Oh yes Jathbee I had forgotten about Gallimore's, good call.

All good place for good food Joe, otherwise it's pub grub usually microwaved leftovers from lunch time or the day before.

I think Joe knows that and pies or pasties are hardly Fine Dining which he wants TTS.

There is also an excellent Thai restaurant at the top of Hallgate. Not the cheapest place but definitely worth the money. Of course it depends on what type of cuisine you are looking for. A very nice Indian restaurant near the Springfield garages Woodhouse Lane. The Raj.

Fat Olives do a 2 course for 12 quid on Tuesdays all day and a good walk to the stadium.
Never had a bad meal there.

Fat Olive always has the same menu's and on our last visit, was not as good as on previous occasions.

As for a steak, nothing like the Parbold Miller & Carter or Summat to eat in Hindley.

Not much fine dinning for me yesterday, burgers and chips, not often I eat like that so no harm done, feel like Leadbelly now though.

Eating Rathbone’s bread,
Your shit’s like lumps of lead,
You fart like thunder and no bloody wonder,
Eating Rathbone’s bread!
