Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This venue is an absolute gem in the heart of Wigan. Amazing place to see a variety of performers; theatre, arts, music and also a wedding venue (my step daughter had her wedding reception here). We attend here quite a lot, the most recent being The Blow Monkeys on Friday. We have a drink the Bailiff Bar beforehand where they also had music acts on. This place has been renovated to an excellent standard whilst keeping the character of the building in tact. The toilets are really nice too!! Keep up the good work - we love it here.
