New wine bar and Wheatsheaf pub revamp announced

Plans for a new wine bar on Market Street have been approved by Westhoughton town councillors.

It comes as a separate plan to revamp the now close Wheatsheaf pub has been announced by pub chain Amber Taverns.

The wine bar will open in a small courtyard next to The Wheatsheaf, while the pub itself will remain closed for several months.

If Amber Taverns receive permission for their plans, the pub will be extended and a larger outdoor area will be created.

Westhoughton town councillor David Wilkinson said: “This new wine bar could make for a great new addition to Westhoughton’s vibrant town centre. It’s great to see so many brilliant independent businesses.”
