New owner for the Crown at Worthington


Publican, a local Wigan company, has purchased The Crown at Worthington and plans to open it once more as a pub, restaurant and small hotel more than two years after it closed its doors.

The Crown closed in early 2016 and plans were initially submitted to the council for a housing development to go there. That prompted a public outcry, with a residents’ group called ‘Save The Crown’ being formed to block the plans.

Over the years, The Crown has won multiple CAMRA awards culminating in being the Greater Manchester Pub of the Year in 2009 and subsequently a finalist in CAMRA’s National Pub of the Year.
