The home of Real Ale in Worthington

Free House, Fantastic Atmosphere, Fine Ales, Family Eating

Welcome to the White Crow, the historic free house in Worthington, Wigan....

THERE’S A WARM and friendly family welcome at the White Crow, which can be found on the A5106 road between Wigan and Chorley at Worthington, right on the Lancashire / Greater Manchester border.

In days gone by the White Crow was a coaching inn where the passengers of mail and passenger coaches could take rest and refreshment as the horses took theirs (see our history page) ……now in the 21st century the White Crow is a family-owned fine food and drink establishment serving up a similar warm welcome to its guests whether arriving by car, horse or on foot!

Owners Stuart and Helen Birch have been looking after customers at the White Crow for 19 years, and are now owners of the White Crow premises.


Up coming beers over the festive period

(when their gone their gone)

Jennings-Red Breast

Brewed with two classic English cone hops and natural coloured malt, this latest addition to the Jennings portfolio drinks with full flavour for a warming glow. Redbreast is available in draught.


Tis the season to be jolly – oh no it isn’t! At least you can take refuge from the Christmas shopping with this rich, fruity spiced ale guaranteed to make even the most seasoned party pooper smile.


This beautiful Blonde Ale is brewed using two very distinctive and much sought after hops, Nelson Sauvin (NZ) and Chinook (USA).


Brewed since 1978. Ceased being bottle conditioned after Marston took over in 2007. Ingredients: Marris Otter malt; Challenger, Goldings and Progress hops. Fuggles added after 2007. The name refers both to the abv, and, by reference to the Californian goldrush of 1849, to the golden colour.

Wily Fox-Karma Citra

Good vibe golden ale. A quadruple hit of citra hops. Hipster heaven.


A hidden treasure has been unearthed in the Wychwood Brewery…and it’s as pure and precious as its forefather. It comes in the form of Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold. Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold is the latest beer carrying the little fella’s moniker, and while Gold might be lighter in colour, it’s definitely no lightweight.

Prospect-Cascade Blonde

A blonde ale with a refreshing lemon and malty taste.
