oooh- not far at all!
The problem with Wigan is that (despite it being a stereotype) it IS full of pie shops- lol

In Hindley we have a new restaurant called 'Summat to Ate' and it is perfect for SW. It does steaks served on a hot rock so you cook it yourself at the table (without oil). You can get this with a jacket potato and veg, so free on EE

oooh sounds good may have to venture that way, and the pie shop is very true, atherton is very small with a small high street and it has at least 3 pie shops and prob 4 cafe all have a variety of pies on the menu

Just wanted to add to this post on a different subject, but relevant to Wigan:

In wigan market hall there is a new sausage stall (I think it is actually called 'the sausage stall' lol) that has opened up and it sells 'sin free sausages'- I asked if they meant 'syn' free and he said yes- the guy said they have applied to have them endorsed by SW and the endorsement should be through any day- but he said he knew they were defo syn free and the certificate is a formality.

I bought some of the plain pork ones and they were DELICIOUS- really fat and juicy- like proper good sausages. They did several flavours, can't remember exactly but I am going back for more and can HIGHLY recommend them

Thanks for the info mrs lever. My boyfriend lives in Wigan (well Standish), but I live in Manchester, and we spend most of our time here, unfortunately.
Lovely to see some local people though!

You're right about the pie shops in Wigan, eeeek. I tend to go to Subway on Standishgate and get a salad bowl - always healthy!
